The Ascension Deals with Authority
Why are so many things going wrong? Foundational truths have been ignored and vital pillars of Christian civilisation have been eroded. What we are seeing today are the inevitable out-workings of false doctrines being introduced, tolerated, accepted, and in many cases, even celebrated. Ascension Day points us to the solution to all these problems. The Ascension deals with Authority. It is absolutely vital that we include the Missing Pillars of the Faith: Ascension Day and Pentecost Sunday in our Christian calendar. This is what is all too often missing. 40 Days after Resurrection Sunday, we should celebrate the Ascension of Christ into Heaven. He is alive forevermore and He is exalted and enthroned at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. He is above every other name and authority in Heaven and on earth. Jesus Christ is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. We have an Advocate in Heaven. He hears our prayers. He will crush all His enemies. He will come again. Therefore we must go and make disciples of all nations.
"Christ has gone into Heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him."
1 Peter 3:22
