This same Jesus...will so come in like manner as you saw Him go. Acts 1:11
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the key to God's plan for the future. Unless Christ was raised from the dead, there can be no future kingdom and no returning King. Unless Christ was raised from the dead, sin and death still reign, and God's plan of redemption remains unfulfilled. But Christ has been raised!
As the disciples stood waching after Jesus ascended into the heavens, the angels assured them that the risen Christ would someday be the returning Christ. "Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven" (Acts 1:11).
Just as surely as Christ rose from the dead, so He will return and take us to Himself. Every promise-without exception-will be fulfilled.
