“After He said this, He was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid Him from their sight.” (Acts 1:9)
For the disciples who witnessed Jesus and His ascension back to Heaven, it was an event of majesty.
The King of Kings was returning to His rightful place in Heaven at the Father’s right hand.
It Was A Heavenly Event.
It was supernatural.
The Lord Jesus had no problem overcoming the Laws of Nature while He ministered on earth.
He walked on water, healed the sick, raised the dead, and fed great multitudes of people with small amounts of food.
His ascension was merely another instance of His power as God.
It Was A Holy Event.
A cloud hid Him from their sight.
His glory was waiting to reclaim Him!
His glory had been allowed to surface once on the Mount of Transfiguration (Matt. 17:1-9).
He was received up into His glory once again!
