|His Glorious Ascension.. by julietjuks: 11:25pm On Nov 15, 2012|
And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight (Acts 1:9). Something remarkable took place after the resurrection of Jesus that most people tend to overlook because they don’t realize how marvellous it was. It’s His glorious ascension into heaven. His ascension was a staggering experience for all those who saw it happen. On that particular occasion, Jesus was talking to His disciples and suddenly, He began to levitate from the ground. Before long, He was a foot off the ground; the next thing they knew, He was more than a meter off the ground, and they watched as He ascended into the clouds. No one ever had this extraordinary experience. The Bible tells us how God took Enoch and Elijah away, to heaven. But Jesus ascended. They watched Him as He kept going upward and upward into heaven. What a glorious way to leave this world. He didn’t need any vehicle; He simply unlocked the power within Him and up He went. While the disciples were standing there, gazing into heaven at the wonder, two angels appeared to them and said, "Men of Galilee, ...why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven" (Acts 1:11 TLB). Now, that’s the point; He’s coming again in like manner. This is the reason we’re preaching the Gospel around the world; the world needs to know that He’s coming again. We have to tell the untold about what He came to do the first time, so that when He comes back, many will be prepared for Him, and this time, they’ll go with Him. Halleluiah!
