"After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:9-11
So, back when we first got married we were living in California. Due to visa matters, my wife had to go back to Korea for about a month. Because we were on our honeymoon and I loved her, I didn't want her to go, but just have her stay at my side all the time. Hey, but the good news was that she would be coming back in about a month's time. We had bought a round trip ticket so she would come back for sure.
As I was thinking about this, I thought about the disciples when they saw Jesus rise up back to heaven. Jesus had been crucified and resurrected. The disciples were glad to have Jesus back yet He couldn't be with them forever. Jesus' mission was done on earth and He had to return back to heaven to finish the whole mission. Jesus went back to heaven in front of the eyes of the disciples. But the angels showed up and promised that Jesus is coming back!
Jesus promised to come back. Just as I knew that Hyemi was going to come back from Korea, the promise of Jesus told by the angels stands true! All we have to do is believe in Jesus and wait for His coming! I think Jesus loves us so much that He wants to come back right away, but there is still unfinished business so we have to wait just a little bit more, but He will come soon!
