Heavenly Homecoming

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. (Acts 1:8-9)

Such incredibly dramatic moment, on multiple levels. That is what you are about to hear in this PODCAST as I humbly present, with full three-part articulation: A Parting, A Promise, and The Privilege.

You see, finally, the time had come for Jesus to go home.Heavenly Homecoming

He had been away from home, more specifically, away from His beloved Father, for some thirty-three years.

Jesus, who from eternity past was according to John 1:1 face-to-face with His Father, enjoying from eternity past an unbroken, undiminished intimacy with His Father that eclipses every possible human relationship.

Thirty-three years prior to this moment, Jesus left His Father to embark upon a rescue mission of immeasurable importance and eternal consequence. A rescue mission defined by Jesus Himself as His coming “to seek and to save those who are lost” (Luke 19:10).

That mission was now completed. Now, it was time. Time for Jesus to go home.
