What Did Christ Do After He Rose?

may2Easter is over and it’s on to the next event, or so it is with many people. In North America, it’s Mother’s Day. And as important as it is to recognize the hard work these women do in raising children, so should those folks who make disciples of all nations be recognized.

Christians are familiar with The Great Commission. Mark 16:15 (KJV) says, “And he (Christ) said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” We understand the “go” part but many missionaries in the past have forgotten about discipleship.

Luke recorded what Christ was busy doing before his ascension. Acts 1:3 (KJV) states, “To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:”

And it wasn’t just a handful of disciples who our Lord met after his resurrection. The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:6 (KJV)  “After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.” The word “sleep” in this case means death.

Jesus had many things to teach his disciples before he ascended. They couldn’t understand at first that his kingdom was spiritual in nature and that he came to save all who would repent and follow him throughout space and time. John 12:16 (KJV) explains, “These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.”may2b

I also had many misunderstandings of what Christianity entailed. For this reason, I plan on writing my next book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? My hope is that I may save my readers from missing the mark and ending up in hell because of false teachers.
