Where Did Jesus Christ Go?

As witnessed by the apostles, Jesus Christ ascended from atop the Mount of Olives (see the links in the Fact Finder question below for a photograph of the Mount of Olives) into heaven:

"1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?

1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that The Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight." (Acts 1:6-9 KJV)

From there, Christ arrived before The Throne of God in heaven:

"7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to The Ancient of Days, and they brought him near before him. 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages [see Do You Speak In Tongues?], should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed." (Daniel 7:13-14 KJV)

"Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing"

The Messiah's arrival before The Father's Throne, as the triumphant Lamb of God, was followed by the granting of the authority to reign upon His return to earth - and to use whatever force is necessary to restore the earth to purity (see the Fact Finder question below):

"5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying,

Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 5:12 Saying with a loud voice,

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever." (Revelation 5:1-14 KJV)

This Day In History, October 16

1555: During the reign of (Roman Catholic) Queen Mary I (known to history as "Bloody Mary" because of the religious persecution that she inflicted upon those who rejected papal rule of Britain), English Protestant reformers Hugh Latimer and Nicholas Ridley were burned at the stake at Oxford after being convicted of anti-Rome "heresy."

1594: William Allen died at age 62. The English cardinal supervised the preparation of the Roman Catholic Reims-Douai translation of the Bible. During his lifetime he was much involved in subversive activities against the Protestant government of Queen Elizabeth I. In a blatant act of high treason, he called upon the Catholic King Philip II of Spain to conquer England and assume the English throne. After Philip's invasion force, the Spanish Armada, was defeated by the British navy (and some very "miraculous" weather), Allen fled to Rome where he was made a cardinal.

1710: Port Royal, Acadia (now Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia) was captured from the French by the British. The Treaty of Utrecht, signed 3 years later, gave the mainland part of present-day Nova Scotia to Britain, but left Cape Breton Island and present-day New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island with France (until 1763 at the conclusion of the French and Indian War, when they too came under British rule). In 1755 many Acadians were deported for refusing to take an oath of loyalty to Britain. Many of them went to the French colony known today as Louisiana (named after French king Louis) where "acadian" became pronounced as "cajun."

1793: Queen Marie Antoinette of France was beheaded during the French Revolution.

1813: Thee 3 day Battle of Leipzig began (also called the Battle of The Nations). It was a decisive victory of the allies over Napoleon. During the battle, most of Napoleon's German auxiliary forces went over to the allies. A large monument commemorates the battle which cost about 120,000 casualties.

1859: John Brown led his famous raid on the U.S. arsenal at Harper's Ferry, West Virginia, and seized the armory to provide for his anti-slavery militia. He was later captured and hanged.

1934: The "Long March" of Chinese communists began under Mao Zedong.

1946: After being convicted of crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg trials, the major Nazi war criminals were executed the same day: Joachim von Ribbentrop, Wilhelm Keitel, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, Alfred Rosenberg, Hans Frank, Wilhelm Frick, Julius Streicher, Arthur Seyss-Inquart, Fritz Sauckel, Alfred Jodl. Hermann Goering escaped the gallows by committing suicide in his jail cell the day before.

1964: China exploded its first atomic bomb, at the Lop Nor test site in Sinkiang.

1978: Cardinal Karol Wojtyla of Poland was elected pope, choosing the name John Paul II. He was the first non-Italian pope in 486 years.

1984: A baboon heart was transplanted into a human infant in California. After the transplant, "Baby Fae" lived 30 days.

1987: The Great Storm of 1987 in Britain. 20 people were killed when a devastating gale with gusts up to 115 mph struck southern Britain, the worst since records began. The storm flattened 15,000,000 trees and caused 1,000,000,000 pounds damage.
