Promised Return. Part-One.

The Ascension.

When Jesus ascended, after forty day on the earth after His resurrection from the dead He promised He would return. Jesus is returning for us who believe, to take us home to Heaven. He told His Disciples that he was going to prepare mansions.

It is the world who are only afraid of the Lords return.

John 14:1-3,   Acts 1:7-11,  1 Corinthians 15:52,  2 Peter 3:10.

He has Arisen. Part-Two.

Witnesses.

The amazing fact about the resurrection of Jesus was that well over five-hundred people saw Him. From His own Disciples and followers to Romans soldiers and strangers going about their daily lives.

The Romans recorded these reports methodically, wither they believed them or not. Jesus would spend forty days on earth, before he ascended back into Heaven with the promise of His final return.

Matthew 28:16,  Mark 16:12-16, Luke 24:13-49, John 2019-29, Acts 1:3-8, 1 Corinthians 15:5-7.

Old Testament References to fulfilled Prophecy, Psalm 16:1-11, Psalm 22, Isaiah 52:13-53:12.

Resurrection. Part-Two.

Jesus told his disciples in the forty day period, between his resurrection and the ascension that He had been given authority both in heaven and on earth. Matthew 28:18.

During this period He also reinstated the boaster and denier Peter, (John 13:38, Matthew 26:75, Mark 14:72, Luke 22:61). Jesus put peters love and faith to the test, to see was he really that loyal. But Jesus also commissioned him to be a great evangelist, which he went on to be.

John chapter 21 is a great account of Jesus meeting meeting up by the Seashore for breakfast, a Jewish fish and chips.
