He ascended into heaven

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Series: I Peter 3:18-22

Text:

Theme:

Throughout the Old Testament decisive events occur on the third day.  On the third day Abraham comes to the place where he believes Isaac will be sacrificed (Genesis 22:4).  The Lord speaks from Mount Sinai on the third day (Exodus 19:11-16).  God grants Hezekiah’s request for fifteen more years of life on the third day (II Kings 20:5-6).  Of course Jesus is raised on the third day.  Death and Hades rule over human life until the resurrection of Jesus (Acts 2:27).  Jesus brings new life to wherever death has ruled.  Death is more than physical.  It is also spiritual.  There is the death of relationships, the death of joy, even the death of hope (II Samuel 6:20-23; Jeremiah 8:18; Ezekiel 37:11).  Jesus overcomes death in all its forms.  Death has been defeated.  Its power is forever broken (I Corinthians 15:54-57).  Yet we still await the “third day” when Death will be no more (Revelations 21:4).

I Kings

I Kings 12-14: “The Return of the Golden Calf”

June 4, 2014

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.
