Payne, Matthew N. & Yuille, J. Stephen
We often think of Christ’s death and resurrection as important to the Christian life. But is there any benefit from Jesus’s ascension? Christopher Love reminds us of the great advantages of Christ going into heaven—not only that He prepares a place for us, but also that He will return and receive us to Himself, and we will be with Him evermore. The book touches on key end time teachings regarding the second coming of Christ, the millennial reign, the bodily resurrection, and the elects’ everlasting communion with the Lord. It also presents believers great comfort while they await Christ’s return.
