He ascended into Heaven!

Psalm 47

For the leader. A psalm of the Korahites.

All you peoples, clap your hands; shout to God with joyful cries.
For the LORD, the Most High, inspires awe, the great king overall the earth,

Who made people subject to us, brought nations under our feet,

Who chose a land for our heritage, the glory of Jacob, the beloved. Selah

God mounts the throne amid shouts of joy; the LORD, amid trumpet blasts.

Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our king, sing praise.

God is king over all the earth; sing hymns of praise.

God rules over the nations; God sits upon his holy throne.

The princes of the peoples assemble with the people of the God of Abraham. For the rulers of the earth belong to God, who is enthroned on high.
He did it! Jesus ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and His Kingdom will have no end!

Meantime, while we await His coming, let's not wait. It's time now to let everyone know the good news...that Jesus Christ is God, has mounted His throne, and will come again, alleluia!

(I love the Feast of the Ascension.)
