Jesus returning to God
Acts 1:8-11 “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you…and you shall be witnesses to Me…When He had spoken these things…He was taken up and a cloud received Him out of their sight…two men stood by them in white apparel, This same Jesus will so come again in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven.
