The Meaning of Christ’s Ascension
"Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."--Genesis 22:2
Abraham and Sarai waited and wondered when God would fulfill his promise. But as the years past and still no son was born, Abraham and Sarai began to doubt. "Will we have a son to be an heir, just as God promised?"
"I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God"--Acts 20:27
When Paul charges young Timothy to "Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort" (II Tim. 4:2), he knew the challenges Timothy would face. In fact, the Apostle Paul knew them as well as anyone. Wherever Paul went imprisonment, afflictions, and persecutions awaited him, and these attacks were always brought on by his faithfulness to preach the whole counsel of God.
