The Blessings of the Ascension Day

The Blessings of the Ascension Day

What’s the point of Ascension Day? (Other than getting a day off in Europe?) Why would we be excited about following the cloud? Why would be excited about Jesus leaving us? Let’s find out. He [Jesus] told them, “You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business. What you’ll get is the Holy Spirit.

Waiting 4 God’s Timing

Waiting 4 God’s Timing

The LORD is a God of justice;    happy are all who wait for him. (Isaiah…

But we can rest assured God knows what he is doing. When we read the whole Bible we get a better glimpse of what God is doing in the world. Jesus came into the world exactly at the right time. The world was not ready for the Messiah…
