9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Message: – Open Heaven 28 December 2019 Saturday Daily
One of the anchors of our faith in Christ is the hope that
He is coming back again (1st John 3:2-3). Unfortunately, not a lot of people
are still excited about this great event, which will surely take place. As a
matter of fact, teachings on the last days and second coming of Christ have not
been heard in some churches in the last five to ten years! This not surprising
because this attitude is in line with what the Lord foretold would happen in
the last days, saying in Luke 17:26-27
“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in
the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they
were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the
flood came, and destroyed them all.”
As revealed by the Holy Spirit in today’s memory verse, the
Lord’s coming is not giving to be a secret event. He is coming with great
grandeur, in His true personality as the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
It is laughable that some so-called scholars claim that Jesus has already come
secretly, while some others claim He has changed His mind and is not coming
back again! On the day of His ascension, the angels who spoke with the
disciples made it clear that He will return the same way He left.

There are some salient truths about the King we are
expecting that we need to establish today. First is that He interacted with His
disciples for forty days after His resurrection from the dead, and He even ate
with them (Acts 1:3, John 21:7-15). So, He is not a ghost, an apparition or the
result of the disciples’ hallucinations. He was seen by over five hundred men,
not counting the women who were also His disciples (1st Corinthians 15:4-8). So
His resurrection from the grave is not based on the wishful-thinking of just a
few fanatics. Secondly, He ascended into heaven through the sky in the presence
of His disciples. There was no gimmick or hidden magic trick about it. After
His ascension, angels testified that He would return in like manner. Therefore,
nobody should be deceived that Jesus Christ has secretly returned.
As a matter of fact, He has no reason to return in secret.
In light of these truths, believers must be ready for the imminent return of
the King of kings. The amazing thing is that despite the stories Jesus told
about kings who traveled and returned requesting accountability from their
servants, many do not seem to understand that these parables are intended to
prepare us for the events of the last days. I pray that you will be wise enough
as the children of Issachar to accurately observe and understand the times and
seasons we live in (1st Chronicles 12:32). God will keep you to the very end in
