The Jews divided all time into two ages:
1) Present age – evil and doomed
2) Age to Come – Golden age of God
The time in between these two ages was to be the “day of the Lord.”
The first signs of the New Age would be terrible – compared to labor pains.
It would come suddenly. The world would be shaken to its foundations – a day of judgment and terror.
The prophetic books of the Old Testament and much of the New Testament describe that day. In verses 14-21 of Acts, Peter is saying to the Jews: “For generations you have dreamed of the day of God, the day when God would break into history. Now, in Jesus that day has come.”
A short business meeting was conducted by President Sarita Monroe. The meeting adjourned with the group’s Closing Prayer.
