Jesus Christ Is Preparing a Place for His People
Adventure 8: Jesus Christ
What is Jesus Christ doing right now?
Jesus is at His Father's right hand, preparing a place for His people and praying for them, confirming His truth through the Spirit and orchestrating all things for the glory of His name and the good of His people. Luke 22:69 – "Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God."
This Truth Makes
Jesus said, “I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father” (John 16:28). The Bible teaches that Christ went up to heaven. Luke 24:50-51 – And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven.
If Christ is really a physical person, and if He really went to a place called heaven, then we should understand and believe that heaven is a place! If Christ is physically there, and not here, what is He doing right now?
1. He is ruling. 1 Peter 3:22 – Who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.
2. He is preparing a place for His own. John 14:2 – In 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.
3. He is praying. Hebrews 7:25 – Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to confirm His truth and accomplish His will in the world. Jesus is not here with us physically right now, but He will be again someday!
