Series: The Apostles' Creed
Text: I Peter 3:18-22
The final climax of Jesus’ earthly ministry is only reached at the point of the Ascension. This signifies two things. Jesus’ work of redeeming the human race and conquering the powers of sin, death and hell is complete even though its full effects still await His return. Second, the age of the church has begun. The church is to testify to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is to proclaim Jesus as Lord in every area of life. Yet during Jesus’ reign, at the right of the Father, the world will revert to the chaos and sin of the time of Noah (Matthew 24:37). In this “time of Noah” between Christ’s ascension and second coming we need to learn the lessons of history. This summer marks the one hundredth anniversary of the beginning of World War I, perhaps the most decisive event of the twentieth century. During that period, the president of the United States was a devout Presbyterian Christian, Woodrow Wilson. A hundred years later we would do well to heed the lessons of that time in history.

There is a conflict over the throne of Israel between Rehoboam, the son of Solomon and presumably the heir, and Jeroboam whom God has anointed in the place of Rehoboam because of his father Solomon’s apostasy. The kingdom divides between the ten northern tribes given to Jeroboam and the tribes of Judah and Benjamin which remain under Rehoboam. Yet all of Israel, including both kings, fall into apostasy and turn aside from the Lord. God’s promise to David is sorely tested here.
