The Ascension of Christ

Holiday Thought.

“And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white clothing; Who said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:9-11).

The scene of the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ must be one of the most the most moving in all history. Christ, having finished the work that the Father had given Him to do, goes back to the Father as the God/man to be received and crowned King of the universe. The promise given to the disciples as they stood looking up at the heavens was that He would come again as the God/man, as they had seen Him go.
