What is the meaning and importance of the ascension of Jesus Christ?

Why did Jesus need to ascend into Heaven?


  1. John 16:7 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.”
    The Holy Spirit is the Comforter 🙂

  2. Mat 16:28 – Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his (x) kingdom.
    (x) By his kingdom is understood the glory of his ascension, and what follows after that, (Eph_4:10), or the preaching of the gospel, (Mar_9:1).

  3. Well now he is at the right hand of the Father interceding on our behalf. Jesus also said that if he leaves, he would send the Comforter in his place, that is the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that he also goes to prepare a place for you in his Father’s house.
    John 14
    1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
    2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also
    Praise God!

  4. Right after he floated up out of their sights there were two men in shining garments that asked the people, “Why stand ye here gazing up? This Jesus whom you see floating away will return in the same way”. So I suppose it was so they could tell of how he would come again.

  5. If Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, harrow hell and ascend into heaven, then all hope for you and me having an after-life is lost for there is no heaven.

  6. He ascended into the Holy of Hollies (where the throne of God sits) to be our High Priest, to bring the blood of the Atonement into the sanctuary.
    That we might obtain mercy.
    Because He is worthy to ascend, we are worthy when we put on Christ. We are able to ascend by the same Spirit he ascended by, when we receive & walk in the same Spirit that was in him. The Spirit of Christ & of the Son. The Holy Spirit of the Comforter, the Spirit of God, the Spirit of YHWH
    Acts 1:2
    Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
    The Spirit is the form God wants us to recognize & relate to him by.
    John 4:23-24
    23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
    24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
    John 14:18
    I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
