What Does "He Ascended" Mean?

What does “He ascended” mean, except that He also descended to the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is the very One who ascended above all the heavens, in order to fill all things. Eph 4:9-10 BSB


My Confession


Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Hallelujah!


Thank you, Jesus, my merciful and faithful High Priest; Holy, Innocent, Undefiled, set apart from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. You who knew no sin but became sin on my behalf, so that in You I might become the righteousness of God. It is because of You that I approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that I may receive mercy and find grace to help me in my time of need. You are my advocate before the Father— Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. Hallelujah! In Your name, I declare that I enter into my inheritance of divine guidance; I declare that I trust in the Lord with all my heart, I do not lean on my own understanding. I acknowledge Him in all my ways, and He will make my path straight. I do not learn by mistakes; I learn through the Spirit of God…I do not learn by getting burned, the Lord guides me. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, my steps are ordered by Him and He delights in my way...He upholds my step in His path, He orders my steps in His word, He preserves my life and keeps my feet from slipping. Amen


In the name of Jesus, we pray for peace in Ukraine. We also declare an outpouring of God’s healing rain over us, young and old, at Regents of Christ Assembly. We declare that the Lord takes away sickness from among us; He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds in the name of Jesus. The Bible says, “He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds we are healed”. We declare that the stripes of Jesus obliterate every infirmity in the name of Jesus. Amen


Let Your will be done O Lord
