- Ascension Day marks the day when Jesus Christ ascended up into Heaven.
- It was 40 days after his resurrection from the dead.
- Forty days from Easter, April 12, 2009, is today, Thursday, May 21.
Ascension is the culmination of the incarnation.
From before creation, it was established that union with mankind would be accomplished in Christ. The ascension completed the work of our adoption. Because of the bodily ascension of Christ, we are now lifted into and included in the fellowship of the Father, Son, and Spirit.
“In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” – John 14:20
This is truly beautiful!
