The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Micah 2:13 (Micah is here prophesying of Jesus and His resurrection from the dead.)
Luke 19:28 (Luke is here echoing the pattern of Micah 2:13. Although this passage certainly described what was happening in the physical realm of Jesus, it also portrays His ascension to the Jerusalem of heaven. Let the Holy Spirit open your eyes to this perspective.)
John 14:2-3 (Jesus went to heaven to prepare a place for us. Prior to His seminal, ground-breaking work there was no place for us in heaven. For more explanation of this, see Everyone Is Going to Heaven.)
