Imagine yourself on the mount where Jesus ascended into heaven 40 days after his resurrection appearances began.   When Jesus physically returned to heaven from the mountain,    He was clearly seen speaking to His disciples on the Mount.  His words were invaluable and critical for them and the Church. Those words were  Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 
Jesus was the Crucified and Risen Son of God whose work on earth with his presence with us is no longer required.  Everyone's sin has been paid for with his life offered unto death as God’s Son.  Convincing proofs were revealed that Jesus who died and was alive again, explaining the meaning of his resurrection to his disciples and proving his life’s mission on earth was fully complete.  Thus, it was time for Jesus to go home to heaven.  And hand over his mission good news to those who love and trust in Him as their Savior. 

How thankful we all should be that Jesus lived, died, rose AND ascended back to heaven. There Jesus remains very busy, at the right hand of God the Father.  There Jesus makes bad work out for our good and keeps so much evil away from us, His people who love and trust in Him.  Aren’t you happy Jesus is back where He belongs?  (In heaven) Aren’t you appreciative that you  also will rise to be with Him one day by faith in His saving love?  He promises it to his people.   

This Sunday, open your minds, hearts and ears to good news as  Jesus Ascends Into Heaven Mark 16:19; Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:1-11

What did Jesus do for his disciples before he ascended into heaven? Jesus taught his disciples and promised to send the Holy Spirit. 

Jesus left this earth only after teaching and guiding the disciples who would begin his church.  We trust that our risen and ascended Savior will always teach and guide us through his Word.

During the 40 days after Easter, Jesus often met with his disciples and instructed them in God’s Word. He promised to be with them and to send God the Holy Spirit to them. On the 40th day, Jesus met his disciples on a hill outside of Bethany. There he blessed them and ascended into heaven.  Come and hear the beautiful details at our church.
