May 12, 2024 • The Ascension of Jesus

The Ascension of Jesus into Heaven is the beginning of the “End Times”. We are living our lives in the Last Days. The Ascension of Jesus into Heaven was like the firing of the starters gun in a track meet; or the click of the stopwatch. The timer is going; the countdown to the Last Day began when Jesus ascended into Heaven. Time is now measured and limited; the day of grace gets shorter and shorter. Only the Father in Heaven knows the exact time.

When Jesus ascended into Heaven, the Disciples were gathered around Him; in addition, perhaps 500 other people were also there and witnesses to His Resurrection (1 Cor 15:6). At His Ascension, Jesus commissioned His disciples, and His Church, saying Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you (Matthew 28:18-20). We are to proclaim Jesus’ death and resurrection so that people will repent and believe that their sins are forgiven (Luke 24).

The Ascension of Jesus Christ marks the beginning of the End Times, the Last Days. Jesus gives you three promises as you live your life during these turbulent times.

1. He is always with you
2. He has sent the Holy Spirit to work in your life
3. He will return suddenly and in great glory on the Last Day
