The Ascension: Jesus’ gift to you!

Why does the Ascension of Jesus bring you sure hope?

Season 1, episode 36
29 min / Published May 25, 2020

Episode 36- God the Father could simply not wait to welcome Jesus back in Heaven after Easter. So much so, that He told us about the welcome party hundreds of years before it happened! It is a foretaste of the party that awaits YOU when you enter heaven. This is the sure hope that is the foundation of our faith. 
In our current uncertain times, we can rest assured that if we are in Christ, we will have quite the welcome party in Heaven. Does someone you know and love recently reach the pearly gates? That is their reality today too!

We look at the richness of the symbolism of the Ascension, but only because it is the precursor to one of the greatest celebrations for the believers: the gift of the Holy Spirit, the full indwelling of God Himself in the believers, given at Pentecost. We will delve deep into Pentecost next week, but this is a glimpse into glory today!
