It has been noted that the ascension of Christ Jesus was the ascension to His coronation at the throne of God.
Tomorrow is the Sunday before Ascension day and I’ll be preaching from the end of Luke and doing a quick survey of some texts in Hebrews. Hebrews has more about Jesus as our High Priest and Mediator than anywhere else. As I’ve worked in these Scriptures this week, my mind has been set toward the throne of grace. (Heb. 4, Col. 3) and then, just now as I read todays Psalms, I saw this:
“O kingdoms of the earth, sing to God; sing praises to the Lord, Selah
to him who rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens;
behold, he sends out his voice, his mighty voice.
Ascribe power to God, whose majesty is over Israel, and whose power is in the skies. Awesome is God from his sanctuary; the God of Israel—he is the one who gives power and strength to his people.
Blessed be God!” Psalm 68:32-35 ESV
Glory be to His great name, Jesus, the King of kings!
When we properly dwell on His greatness, our trust in Him grows and we can lay all our cares upon Him, for he cares for us.
“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!” Psalm 57:5 ESV
Soli Deo Gloria!
