Worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+... worthy is the LAMB+ that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing! Blessing and honor and glory and power be unto HIM that sitteth on the throne and unto The LAMB+ for ever and ever. Amen.
The ASCENSION of CHRIST... The Crowning Jewel of HIS+ RESURRECTION !
The Crowning Jewel of HIS+ RESURRECTION
Acts 1: 9-10-11
And when HE+ had spoken these things,
while they beheld,
HE+ was taken up;
and a cloud received HIM+ out of their sight.
And while they looked stedfastly toward Heaven
as HE+ went up,
two men stood by them in white apparel;
Which also said,
Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up
This same JESUS,
Who+ is taken up from you
shall so come
in like manner as ye have seen him go

Our LORD JESUS CHRIST meantfor His+ disciples
to SEE Him+ ascending into Heaven.
It was purposeful.
His+ disciples were stricken with AWE !
The LORD JESUS CHRIST, in HIS+ Resurrected, Glorified BODY had just spent 40 days with His+ disciples, teaching them the things concerning the Kingdom of GOD, Acts 1:3.
appeared at will among them, coming and going ... sometimes suddenly
coming, sometimes suddenly VANISHING from their sight, as HE+ did with
the men walking to Emmaus, Luke 24:31.
The Ascension of CHRIST...HE+ was taken up into Heaven ... was VISIBLE ! This time, the disciples SAW HIM+ go up!
In His+ Glory, what was HE+ showing them ?
in its GLORIFIED BODY,
may indeed enter Heaven !
+ + +
For our citizenship (Gk) is in Heaven;
from whence also we look for
the Savior+, the LORD JESUS CHRIST:
Who+ shall change our vile body,
that it may be fashioned like unto
His+ Glorious BODY+,
according to the working whereby
HE+ is able
even to subdue all things
Philippians 3: 20-21
+ + +
O GOD, our FATHER, WHO for our Redemption didst give Thine Only-BEGOTTEN SON+ to the death of the Cross.
And HE+, through His+ Glorious Resurrection and Ascension, has delivered us from the power of the adversary and the dominion of Death;
Grant us so to die daily from sin
we may evermore live with HIM+ in the joy of His+ Resurrection, through
the same, Thy SON+ JESUS CHRIST our LORD, Who+ lives and reigns with
THEE , and Thy Blessed HOLY SPIRIT... ONE GOD... both now and forever, World without End.
