Speaker : John Reim

Hebrews 1:3–4 (Listen)

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.


Mark 16:19 (Listen)

19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.


Ephesians 4:8–11 (Listen)

Therefore it says,

  “When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,
    and he gave gifts to men.”1

(In saying, “He ascended,” what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower regions, the earth?2 10 He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds3 and teachers,4


[1] 4:8 The Greek word anthropoi can refer to both men and women

[2] 4:9 Or the lower parts of the earth?

[3] 4:11 Or pastors

[4] 4:11 Or the shepherd-teachers


Matthew 28:20 (Listen)

20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”


Psalm 50:15 (Listen)

15   and call upon me in the day of trouble;
    I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”


Hymn: TLH 213, st. 1,3-5 :
Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise — Organ Audio

1. Hail the day that sees Him rise
To His throne above the skies
Christ, awhile to mortals given
Reascends His native heaven

3. See the Heav’n its Lord receives,
Yet He loves the earth He leaves,
Though returning to His throne,
Still He calls mankind His own

4. See! He lifts His hands above
See! He shows the prints of love
Hark! His gracious lips bestow
Blessings on His church below

5. Still for us He intercedes
His prevailing death He pleads
Near Himself prepares our place
Harbinger of human race
