Painting No. 14

The Ascension

The Ascension implies Jesus's humanity being taken into heaven. His ascension occurred 40 days after his resurrection. He spent the 40 days teaching his followers and told his Apostles that they would receive the power of the Holy Spirit and they will spread His message the world over.

The Ascension

Luke 24:50-53
50 When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them.
51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.
52 Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.
53 And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.
   

The End of Time

At the end of time, which is near, those who died in Christ as well as those who are still living and believe that Jesus Christ is our God and Savior, that he died and rose on the third day from the dead and ascended to heaven, will also ascend with their body and meet the Lord.

Here is what the Bible said:

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
