Ponder Over It


ACTS 1:1-11,
Jesus Taken Up Into Heaven
1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. 4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with[a] water, but in a few days you will be baptized with[b] the Holy Spirit.”
6 Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”
7 He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
9 After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “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.”



Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, came down humanly to open the way to the kingdom of God for mankind. After His task, He was crucified, died and was buried. On the third day, when He finished preaching to the spirits in prison, He rose again. He revealed Himself to the apostles and gave them convincing proofs that He was alive. He assured them of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. While He was talking to the apostles, He was taken up before their very eyes and cloud hid Him from their sight. As they were looking intently up into the sky, two men dressed in white, stood beside them and said, " Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven".
We have been celebrating Ascension days for about two thousand and twenty years now. How do you relate to God and His Son Jesus Christ? How have you prepared to meet Jesus Christ in His Second Coming?

He has given us assurance that we should have trust in God and trust also in Him(Jesus Christ). In His Father's house are many rooms. He is preparing a place for us. He will come back and take us to be with Him (John 14:1-3).
How sure are you that you would be raptured to occupy your room when Christ comes for the second time? The price had been paid for you, the price that you could not have paid, had been paid for you over 2020 years now. Do not just celebrate the Ascension, but examine yourself if you are still among the faithful ones (The Saints)

Forty days after Jesus rose from the dead, He ascended into heaven and took His seat on the throne at the right hand of God brought His atoning blood before the Father (Leviticus 16:17)
He is now reigning in power, destroying God's enemies, praying on our behalf before the Father.
Jesus Christ is urging you to meditate on His atoning sacrifice be God consciousness and His second coming in this dispensation of Coronavirus.

God richly bless you.
