Blessings of The Ascension
Topic: The Early Church Beginnings Passage: Acts 1:1-11
The work of Christ on the cross is over and He has resurrected and moved among the people for the past 40 days. The promise of the coming of the Holy Spirit is imminent with the ascension of Jesus. It is not tragic that Jesus should ascend because He is going to come back. It is also not negative because there is a blessing tied to the coming of the Spirit. God's people will be changed by the Spirit by regeneration, power to witness and to establish churches are evidence.
