Basking faith: gazing up towards heaven
We look forward to the second coming of Jesus cherishing in our hearts the words:
“When he had said this, as they were watching, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. While he was going and they were gazing up towards heaven, suddenly two men in white robes stood by them. They said, ‘Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up towards heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven” Acts 1: 9-11. The angels will return with Jesus and they will come with a loud sound of trumpet to gather from the whole earth those who have died in Christ (Matt 16:27; 24:31; 25:31).
