Your Ladder into Heaven - September 15, 2023

Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man” (John 1:51 ESV).

Your ladder into heaven is not a vision; yours is a person. Jesus is our stairway. He calls himself the “Son of Man,” a title that refers to his preexistence. Jesus is announcing, “I am the one upon whom the angels ascend and descend. I am the vehicle of blessing to the world.”

Christ, our go-between, is everywhere at all times, equally present with the Father to hear our prayers as he is with the Spirit to answer them. He is at both ends of the ladder: Jehovah at the top, Jehovah at the bottom. He is the intermediary between you and God. The question is not, Is God active? The question is, Are we watching? God never gives up on you.
