Christians, where is the "Bosom of Abraham" located?

I know is in his chest, but that is not what I am asking!...

Update:

Limbo has been cancelled just recently!

I wonder where the Jews who were promised the Holy Land end up! Because the Bible promises BETTER THINGS" for the Chistians!

    The 'Bosom of Abrahm' used to be down accross from hell. As Jesus described this in the NT. But when Jesus raised from the dead, so did the OT Saints (when born of the Spirit because the atonement was made) when Jesus raised from the dead. Then the 'Bosom of Abraham' raised up to the 3rd heaven. I have read this in the NT now don't remember where.

    Also in the Gospels it is written in one that the spirits of the Saints raised up when Jesus raised from the dead. Jesus raised up a new body though. And the rest of us, including the OT Saints will raise up a new body at resurrection day complete.

    So? Abrahams bosom Saints before the atonement & Saints after the atonement are in the 3rd heaven. To be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord.

    The phrase "Bosom of Abraham" refers to the place of comfort in sheol (Greek: hades) where the Jews said the righteous dead awaited Judgment Day. Another name for it is Limbo of the Fathers. The phrase "Bosom of Abraham" is found in Luke 16:22-23 in Jesus' parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.

    Catholics are the normal Christians. The first church, which Christ began used to be the Catholic church. For the primary thousand years, there used to be only one Christian Church. In 1054, it break up into two branches, the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church and the Roman Catholic Church. There had been most effective two Christian branches for one other 500 years. In 1518, Martin Luther began a third department, Protestantism. The third department splintered into many denominations. You are most often spotting that Catholics aren't Protestants. The normal Christian Church remains to be Catholic. The Amish is among the MANY Protestant denominations. Jehovah Witnesses aren't a Protestant denomination however an offshoot of Christianity considering that they consider Jesus is the angel Michael and no longer the Son of God.

    Those that belong to Christ know were they are going.Lazarus knew as Paul did { 2 Timothy 4:7-8 } that he had kept the faith and finished the course, he could see his reward and what awaited him.

    The rich man cried out for a drop of water{ Luke 16:24 }. He to could see his reward for being unrighteous.Even though he was dead he could see the place of torment that awaited him.

    "The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:" 2 Peter 2:9

    When Jesus died on the cross and then arose from the grave he forever opened the door to Paradise in Heaven. The Bible says Heaven is above us. The Apostle Paul said he was called up to the third Heaven. UP.

    God revealed in the Quran2:125 "Remember We made the House(Kaabah in Mecca,Saudi Arabia) a place of assembly for men and a place of safety and take ye the station of Abraham as a place of prayer; and We covenanted with Abraham and Ismail, that they should sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or use it as a retreat, or bow, or prostrate themselves(therein in prayer)

    2:127 God revealed in the Quran"And remember Abraham and Ismail raised the foundations of the House(the Kaabah with this prayer):"Our Lord!accept (this service) from us: for Thou art the All-hearing, the All-knowing.

    It's a reference to heaven....or paradise.

    This is one of the verses I use in my defense of an actual heaven......and how there is no purgatory

    Luke 16:22 "The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried."

    It no longer exists. Prior to Jesus' sacrificial death, it existed in the area we would call "Hades," but it was separated from the area called "Torments" by a deep crevasse that couldn't be crossed. Once Jesus brought the righteous Jews and Gentiles who were there up to Heaven, it disappeared and Hell was enlarged.
