After Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, He ascended up to Heaven before the very eyes of His disciples… and while they were in wonderment, looking at this supernatural event, suddenly two angelic beings appearing as men stood by them with an important message.
In Acts chapter one, the angels powerful announcement was this — Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into Heaven? This same Jesus who is taken up from you into Heaven will also come again in like manner as you have seen Him go.
Notice the divine messengers said Jesus WILL come again in the same way He departed. His return is not just a possibility or if everything goes a certain way then He will come back. His coming is eminent. Jesus will return! No doubt the messenger angels spoke a direct word from the throne of God. God will have His way. Jesus will come again to set things in order according to His Word. No one or nothing can stop it from eventually happening. For those who trust Jesus as their Savior, He is coming to redeem them.
What can you do to assure you are looking forward to His return? Call on Jesus now and acknowledge Him as your Lord and Savior. Just say aloud this simple prayer from your heart… “Lord, Jesus, I receive you into my heart and life. I believe you died for me on the cross and have risen from the dead. Thank you for saving and redeeming my life and eternity.”
If you prayed that simple but powerful prayer, Jesus will come for you one day. Be at peace. Your sins are forgiven and your eternity is secure.
