Ascension of the Lord 2020.

"Go, make disciples of all the nations. I am with you always; yes, to the end of time." (Matthew 28: 19, 20).

Sunday 24th May 2020, 7th Week in the Easter Season is the Ascension of the Lord.

Before departing this earth, the Lord Jesus repeated the Great Promise: "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1: 8).

My friends, let me share with you a great insight I learned from a great Bible teacher, Father Al Lauer of Presentation Ministries. Father Al is today enjoying his well deserved rewards in Heaven. Father Al Lauer taught that YOU CAN BE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT MULTIPLE TIMES. I was first filled in 1995, then in 2015. Today, I am expecting a deep filling on Pentecost Sunday. At the moment, I  join other disciples all over the world in the Cenacle making the Pentecost Novena.

Why prepare for Pentecost? Why make a Novena? The answer is plainly in the first Reading today:
"May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation resulting in knowledge of him.  May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call, what are the riches of glory in his inheritance among the holy ones,  and what is the surpassing greatness of his power for us who believe." (Ephesians 1: 17 - 19).

My friends, we have a glorious commission from our Lord Jesus Christ:
"Go, make disciples of all the nations. I am with you always; yes, to the end of time." The Scripture above from Ephesians tells us that the reward will be huge.

Let us embrace this sweet task with joy and excitement. Apart from the truth that this life is very short, what does it profit you if you gain the whole world and risk eternal life?
