Ascention: 9 May 2013

Today we celebrate the Ascension of Messiah.  We are told in the Gospels and the Book of Acts that for 40 days after his resurrection that he was with the disciples and that many saw him.  Forty days after his resurrection, he ascended into heaven, witnessed by his disciples.  We see the Ascension as Messiah bringing our human nature to heaven, and that he is now interceding for us at the right hand of God the Father..

Lord Yeshua, you ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of God the Father to intercede for us.  Please pray for us that we would truly seek your will for us, that we keeping our eyes firmly fixed on you would learn to obey you as your angels in heaven obey you.  This we ask in you name, you who live and reign with the Father and the Ruach haKodesh, one God in glory everlasting. Amen (gold)
