North Shore Christian Centre - Home Bible Study notes
It is important for us to understand that the Father and the son are reunited in Heaven. The father and the son were separated for a time, as the plan of salvation was being fulfilled.
Our salvation depends on our faith to believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and ascended to the Father in heaven.

2. Christ takes His place ruling with the Father
Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Acts 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
3. Christ has defeat all authorities and powers
1 Peter 3:22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
1 Corinthians 15:24-25 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
