Jesus in Heaven

After His resurrection from the dead, Jesus ascended into heaven to sit down at the right hand of God (Mark 16:19; Psalm 110:1).  Heaven was thus His resting place during the time of the ministry of the apostles (i.e. the time during which the New Testament documents were written).  This was to be the case until the restoration of all things described by the prophets of Israel in the Holy Scriptures (Acts 3:21).  At that time, the time of His coming again, He would be revealed from heaven as God Almighty, He who inflicts wrath and grants deliverance (2 Thessalonians 1:7; Romans 1:18; Psalm 2). 

He who sat in heaven while the New Testament was being written has since filled the heavens and the earth.  Even the entirety of the heavens and the earth cannot contain Him.  He is our God, this Jesus whom we crucified.  Let us bow our hearts always before Him for is worthy of our constant devotion, and His blessing delivers the obedient from His wrath.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
