Psalm 68:18 | When you ascended to the heights, you led a crowd of captives. You received gifts from the people, even from those who rebelled against you. Now the Lord God will live among us there.

Mark 16:19 | When the Lord Jesus had finished talking with them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand.

Ephesians 4:8-10 | That is why the Scriptures say, “When he ascended to the heights, he led a crowd of captives and gave gifts to his people.” Notice that it says “he ascended.” This clearly means that Christ also descended to our lowly world. And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that he might fill the entire universe with himself.

1. What event is foretold in Psalm 68 and fulfilled in Mark 16? 
2. The ascension of Jesus to Heaven was witnessed by many and then recorded for us to account for the fulfillment of another foretelling. How do all of these moments strengthen your faith and point  to Jesus as the Promised Savior? 
3. What is Jesus doing in Heaven now? How do you know? 
4. How long will He stay there?
