If you know me, you know I am the one trip ✈️ wonder. If I am getting groceries out of the 🚘, I will hook the loops of every bag from my shoulders to my wrists. I hate making multiple trips ✈️ . We do these things to save resources. Rather we get into the habit of rationing our 💰, 🕰 and 🏋️. Sometimes I ask myself what I am trying to save. I'm not lazy 🤤.
What about those people who do things the hard way. They are considered nonresourceful or impractical. You know the phrase "work smarter not harder." Seems like folks a few generations before us used to do everything manually. A job like 👠 making that once would take several painstaking hours, now there's an app 🤳 for that.
So why does Christ take the trouble of going to heaven after rising from the 💀? He then comes back for a little while, later to be lifted up as He disappears in the ☁️s .
Check out this verse below, I would like to ask you some questions about it.
What happens to Jesus after He is done ✅ speaking his last words of Christ on earth 🌏?
He is lifted up
When Jesus is lifted up all men are drawn to Him. When Christ was lifted up on the cross, heaven and earth were reconciled by His sacrifice. When Jesus was lifted up from the earth 🌏 as the disciples stood gazing intently into the sky 🌌, all men are drawn to Him as the promised gift of the Holy Spirit allowing Christ to live within you.
Who starts talking to the disciples as they are gazing into the sky 🌌?
Two men in white clothing.
Remember when Mary came to see the dead 💀 Jesus, to be the most disappointed she had ever been to see that the stone was rolled away and that he was gone? This was probably the most joyous occasion in history other than Jesus's arrival in Bethlehem. There were two angels 👼🏻 , sitting where Jesus's body was laying. They have a similar message to the one the two men dressed in white had for the disciples. "Why are you standing there staring 🙄 into the sky 🌌 ? "Why are you crying 😭?" The angels 👼🏻 said to Mary.
I asked myself why they're needed to be a message of clarification and redirection at those times. Was it the witness factor? Was it simply because a prophecy was being fulfilled? Was it because of how distraught the disciples and Mary were probably feeling at that time? What do you think?
as Christ is raining and I've been with the father, he is drawing us to Himself. We must keep our vision upward and on Him as we move forward in faith.
God's plans i'm not like our plans. His plan of salvation has steps that we cannot always immediately understand.
Are we standing firmly, trusting in God even when his plans don't make sense?
How are you spending your time as you wait for the second coming of Christ?
Do you Believe he will do as he has said in his Word?
