Bible Prophecy: Messiah's Ascension.
Psalm 68:18 KJV
Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that The Lord God might dwell among them.
Luke 24:50,51 KJV
50 And He led them out as far as to Bethany, and He lifted up His hands, and blessed them.
51 And it came to pass, while He blessed them, He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
Acts 1:9 KJV
And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
Some churches show a statue of dying Jesus on the cross, but far be that of our resurrected and ascended Lord Jesus! Seated at The Right Hand Of God, He is our living High Priest interceding for His people, to God The Father.
Hebrews 7:25,26 KJV
25 Wherefore He (Jesus Christ) is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.
26 For such an High Priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
Our Lord's Ascension:
Mark 16:19 KJV
So then after The Lord had spoken unto them, He was received up into heaven, and sat on The Right Hand Of God.
Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV
14 Seeing then that we have A Great High Priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus The Son Of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto The Throne Of Grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 9:24 KJV
For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
I Peter 3:21,22 KJV
21 "...the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on The Right Hand Of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him.
Mark 16:6 KJV (Angels proclaimed it)
And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted (frightened): Ye seek Jesus Of Nazareth, which was crucified: He is risen..."
Christ the Lord Is Risen Today
Christ The Lord is risen today, Alleluia!
Sons of men and angels say, Alleluia!
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia!
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!
Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!
Dying once He all doth save, Alleluia!
Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!
Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia!
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia!
Death in vain forbids Him rise, Alleluia!
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia!
Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia!
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!
Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!
