I had gotten a car and then the engine went. I trusted the Lord and had a used engine put in. With a few setbacks, I pray it will be okay now. This week has been spent mostly at home studying the Bible and listening to sermons. I could have used mom’s car and gone out but, I do believe it was very precious time spent with the Lord.
I do work for the Lord in every way I can, every day I can. I believe this trial did work out to His Purpose. I need to get back working part-time also. I do have a couple of options at the moment. He gives us all we need and he promises never more than we can handle.
Here are some Bible verses that tell of the Lord’s ascension into heaven after his resurrection from the dead and appearing to his apostles for forty days. After he ascended they received the Holy Spirit (the helper) which we receive also if we believe the truth. There is no other way to heaven except to truly believe that Jesus died for sinners. We cannot of ourselves do anything to earn our way. We must repent of our sins and believe he is the only way truly in our hearts. You must fear God and his wrath upon this earth when he returns.
Jesus Ascends to Heaven
Now when Jesus had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they stood steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who is taken up from you to heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw him go into heaven”. Acts 1:9-11
But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. Matthew 24:36
We must be faithful and wise servants, always waiting and watching.
The Second Coming of Jesus
For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man be. For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation (seven years) of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:27-31
