THE COSMIC CONQUEST OF CHRIST
I Peter 3:18-22
I want you to listen to my words very closely this morning.
This is a passage of scripture I have been studying for several
weeks now. I told you two weeks ago that I was going to need
at least two weeks time on this passage of scripture. It now
appears now to me that what I really need is about two years time.

He said, where are they? He said, out in the truck, where do you want
them?" So you better listen carefully to my words today. This is
not an easy passage of scripture. And there are going to be some

feel they are very important. I believe they are more accurately
