The people’s Christ




The people’s Christ

“I have exalted one chosen out of the people.” Psalm 89:19

Suggested Further Reading: 
Acts 1:1-11

How exalted was he in his ascension! He went out from the city to the top of the hill, his disciples attending him while he waited the appointed moment. 

Mark his ascension! Bidding farewell to the whole circle, up he went gradually ascending, like the exaltation of a mist from the lake, or the cloud from the streaming river.

 Aloft he soared; by his own mighty buoyancy and elasticity he ascended up on high—not like Elijah, carried up by fiery horses; nor like Enoch of old, of whom it could be said he was not, for God took him. 

He went himself; and as he went, I think I see the angels looking down from heaven’s battlements, and crying, 
“See the conquering hero comes!” 
while at his nearer approach again they shouted,
 “See the conquering hero comes!” 
So his journey through the plains of ether is complete—he nears the gates of heaven—attending angels shout, 
“Lift up your heads, ye everlasting gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors!” 

The glorious hosts within scarce ask the question,
 “Who is this king of glory?” 
when from ten thousand thousand tongues there rolls an ocean of harmony, beating in mighty waves of music on the pearly gates and opening them at once, 
“The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.”

 Lo! heaven’s barriers are thrown wide open and cherubim are hastening to meet their monarch,

“They brought his chariot from afar,
To bear him to his throne;
Clapp’d their triumphant wings and said,
“The Saviour’s work is done.”

Behold he marches through the streets. See how kingdoms and powers fall down before him! Crowns are laid at his feet, and his Father says, “Well done, my Son, well done!” while heaven echoes with the shout, “Well done! Well done!” Up he climbs to that high throne, side by side with the Paternal Deity. 

“I have exalted one chosen out of the people.”

For meditation: 

Our ascended Lord Jesus Christ—his principal posture (he sits), his persistent pleading (he intercedes), his patient preparation (he waits to return)—Hebrews 10:11-13.
