Bible Passage:The Apostles' Creed

He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

*     *     *

In this second part we will treat of our belief concerning Jesus' exaltation.  I believe that Jesus descended into hell that He might overcome and subdue under Himself Satan, together with all his powers and devices, that he might have no more power to hurt me nor any other that believes, and that He might deliver me from the torments of hell.  I believe that He rose again the third day from the dead for the salvation of me and all that believe, that we, being quickened by His Spirit and grace, might enter into a new life, serving Him alone in holiness of life and fulfilling His commandments.  I believe that He ascended into heaven and received of the Father glory and power over all angels and creatures.  I believe that He sits also at the right hand of God; that is, that He is made King and Lord over all the works of God that are in heaven, on earth, and in hell, and that He can therefore be at hand to succor me and all others who believe against all our adversaries and enemies.  I believe that He shall come from there in the last day to pronounce sentence both on the living who remain, and on the dead; that all men, all angels, and all devils, also, shall stand before His tribunal and behold Him face to face; and that these things shall be done in order to deliver me and all who believe from death and from all other calamities of every kind, and that He may take eternal vengeance on His adversaries, from whose tyranny we shall then be free forever.

He lives triumphant from the grave,
He lives eternally to save;
He lives all-glorious in the sky,
He lives exalted there on high.

aka Pastor Robin Fish

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him
and He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6
