The Ascension of Jesus


  1. Astronauts were not the first people “in space.”
    • Jesus Christ ascended into heaven without a space rocket.

  3. Philippians 2:5-11 “every tongue shall coness Jesus Christ is Lord”
    • Acts 1:1–3 “seen of them 40 days” why 40 days?
  4. Six lessons to be learned from the ASCENSION OF JESUS


  1. Mark 16:19 “sat on the right hand of God”
  2. This implies that Jesus “finished” the work God sent him to do.

2. The Ascension & INTERCESSION FOR US

  1. Hebrews 4:14–16; Jesus is our high priest.
    1. Exodus 28:34 “Golden bell and pomogranate around them” Why?
    2. Hebrews 7:25 πHe liveth to make intercession for us”
  2. Difference between sympathy and empathy.


  1. Mark 16:19–21
    • “Jesus was received up into heaven... and THEY went forth and preached everywhere.” Is that what we are doing?

4. The Ascension & CHRISTIAN SERVICE

  1. Ephesians 4:8–12
    1. Matthew 25:14-30. Five, two and one talent
      • One talent man was afraid and hid his talent.
    2. Colossians 1:24 “Suffered in the flesh for Christ and His body which is the church.”

The Ascension & SECOND COMING

  1. Acts 1:10–11
    • Jesus ascended bodily and suddenly. This is how He will return.
  2. He is coming to raise the dead, translate the living, unite them back again, and take His children to heaven.


  1. John 20:17–18 - “touch me not... MY Father... YOUR Father.”
    • 2 Corinthians 5:16-17 a new creature
    • John 14:1-4 Jesus speaks of a new relationship in heaven.


  1. If you know nothing about this NEW RELATIONSHIP as one of His children... please prepare now. FAITH, REPENT, CONFESS, BAPTISM.
  2. Jesus ascended. One day he will descend not to save but to judge. Will it be HEAVEN for you? Will it be HELL? Which?
