A Note from Pastor
The next-to-last Milestone!
The Ascension of our Lord is the next-to-last great milestone in the history of the world! As true man, Christ has been received into glory. He now fully possesses (as God and Man) the authority of the right hand of the Majesty on High - that He held with the Father and the Holy Spirit before His incarnation. The time of His humiliation is now past! He has begun His reign as the King of kings in the kingdom of grace. He now uses all authority in heaven and on earth to give His forgiving and life-giving gifts in water and word and bread and wine! The next and last great milestone in the history of the world will be His Second Coming - His return to judge the living and the dead (2 Thessalonians 1:7). On the fortieth day after Easter (this year May 17th) nothing deserves our greater attention and more grateful praise than The Ascension of our Lord!
