Talking Things Over:
- Explain how Jesus is in heaven and yet with us at the same time. Why is it better this way?
- What do we mean by the “benediction”? How does this benediction which the minister gives when he lifts up his hands, show that Jesus is with His people?
- When will Jesus return? How will He return? (see verse 11).
Words to Remember:
Heaven – The place where believers will live for all eternity in the presence of God.
Hell – The place where God punishes unbelievers eternally for their sins.
Intercession – This is the prayers of Jesus which He makes to the Father for His people.
