    Do you believe Jesus was in heaven as soon as he died?

    In the Bible Mark 16 :9 "Jesus rose from the dead early on the first day of the week. He appeared first to Mary Magdalene. He had driven seven demons out of her."
    It says Jesus rose meaning to come up, does anyone believe his really battle was in hell? Did he go down and fight in hell for us? Where did the seven demons come from?

    According to the New Testament
    It was the author of Luke and Acts who developed the notion of Jesus being  physically taken up into heaven. Mark, in its original form, implies that the  resurrection and the ascension of Jesus into heaven were one and the same event. Otherwise, the gospels have nothing to say on this. In Luke  24:51, Jesus ascended into heaven on the evening of the day of his resurrection. Acts of the Apostles, written some time later, at verses 1:3,9, says that the  risen Jesus stayed on earth for forty days and was then taken up bodily into  heaven.  The answer to this question depends on which gospel account  is used: The first gospel to be written, Mark's Gospel, originally ended at  verse 16:8, when the women fled from the sepulchre in terror, telling no one.  The 'Long Ending', added much later, is somewhat similar to the account in  Luke's Gospel, Mark 16:14 saying that Jesus appeared to the eleven at a meal, then they dispersed and preached everywhere. Thus: In the original Gospel, Jesus was never  seen after his resurrection. .In the  Long Ending, Jesus only appeared to the disciples at a meal, he was taken up  into heaven, then they dispersed and began to preach. Matthew's Gospel says that  Jesus appeared briefly to the disciples at a mountain in Galilee and told them  to spread out and preach. Jesus said he would be with the disciples always, but  the gospel is silent on what happened to Jesus in his physical body.

      I just wonder about what isn't written, did he just stay in a tomb sleeping in death, or was his spirit in Hell fighting death. If he was actually fighting in the spiritual sense in Hell to defeat death.

    1 Peter 3:18-19
    18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

    19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

    After Jesus died he preached to the spirits in prison(hell).

    He was already in Heaven throughout his life.

    As he said, the kingdom of God is within us.

    The ones who wrote the Bible in code, now have made that code available to all. The 125 steps back to God are laid bare and the Love Christ talked about is essential to our progress.

    You don't have to wait until your body dies to reach Heaven.
