I didn't realize that ascention day was recognized until I went

to visit some area Amish on Ascention morning and they were fasting that morning. I cannot remember what else they were going to do that day. Ascention day has not been something that I have ever even thought of, other than when reading the Biblical account, until I had that experience. I did not realize that other denominations recognized that day also.

Acts 1:10 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.

Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we havenot an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need

1 Thessalonians 4:17-18 KJV
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Revelation 22:20 KJV
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus

Enjoyed reading you and Granger's uplifting exchange. I found it because I saw Agape Forum on the side and decided to check.
