Heaven has received Jesus for a while

Peter told the Jews to repent of having crucified the Son of God, and then said,

“…whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3.21). 

After His resurrection, and after spending time with His apostles, Jesus ascended to Heaven, but Peter indicated that in the future, Jesus will descend again as He restores all things, which includes taking His people back with Him to heaven.

Questions:

  • How often do you think of the return of Jesus?
  • Are you prepared for Him to return at any time?
