“… this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11bText — Acts 1:4-11
For forty days after His resurrection, Jesus appeared to His disciples at different times. They never knew exactly when or where He would appear next. One day, while talking to His disciples, Jesus was simply taken up into the sky and disappeared into the clouds. And that was the last time they saw Him on earth. The stunned disciples stared intently into the sky, then without warnings, two men in white clothe stood beside them and asked why they were looking up there. The angelic beings explained that Jesus would someday return to the world the same way He left in a sudden, unexpected and amazing way.
At His second coming, Jesus would take over the government of this world and bring perfect peace. Hatred, greed, jealousy, fighting and all ungodly things will come to an end. Jesus has revealed the awesome power of God and how different heaven would be from the earth. Repent of your naughty ways so as to be with Jesus in His kingdom when He comes back to take His friends to heaven.
Prayer for today
