We look forward to hearing your story when you're able to relate it. The Lord is doing things in your life, no doubt, and has brought you here to receive the food and fellowship we all need.
Regarding your question about the Lord's three days and nights in the grave, we have a good writing on hand by a false teacher, Herbert Armstrong. In this matter, Herbert rightly and ably declares the truth. So instead of reinventing the wheel, we're providing you with his explanation (attached).
This is also a good occasion to warn you against cynicism or a wrong attitude towards those who are in error or presumption about their standing with God. While they are your enemies in the Gospel, they are, along with everything else in this world and the next, part of God's doing and plan to manifest and glorify Himself through His creation. They are part of the “all things” Paul wrote about, working together for good (Romans 8:28).
False ones can and do teach us things, both in truth and error. We even benefit from those in all evil.
“The righteous wisely considers the house of the wicked; but God overthrows the wicked for their wickedness” (Proverbs 21:12 MKJV).
“The wicked is delivered up for the just: and the unjust for the righteous” (Proverbs 21:18 DRB).
Isn't it remarkable how many professing to love God and be saved cannot bear the thought that He would never assign anyone to eternal torment? If we, being evil wouldn't do that to any of our children, how much less would God do it?
Are you aware, Andy, that Jesus Christ is totally victorious and the prince of this world totally defeated? Jesus Christ paid for us all and He will get what He paid for; we can be absolutely sure of that if we are sure of Him.
