Jesus in Heaven

The first chapter of Revelation is a really important vision. John looked into the spiritual realms and saw Jesus at the right hand of God. When Jesus ascended into heaven, he did not sit on a couch twiddling his thumbs, while waiting to return to the earth and get on with the business he had not finished. John saw Jesus standing at the centre of the throne. He is directing the Holy Spirit, as he works in the world to release the kingdom. Millions of angels are waiting, eager to do his bidding. Jesus releases the events that bring in the time of distress and bring in the fullness of the Kingdom. His work on earth was finished, but his working in the spiritual realms had just begun.
