• The Ascension of the Son of Man Devotional

    Matthew 24:29-31

    Jesus’ ascension and session (seating) at God’s right hand were important enough to the earliest Christians to include in both the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed. Yet as Dr. R.C. Sproul has often said, we often neglect these important events in the modern church. Christ’s ascension and session are critical because they confirm that Jesus Christ has been given all authority in heaven and earth. Thus, we know that He is reigning now to defeat all His and our enemies. View Resource

  • One like a Son of Man Devotional

    Daniel 7:13-28

    Tomorrow we will see that this text foresees the coming of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and divine Son of Man in His ascension and session at the Father’s right hand. In His death, resurrection, and ascension, He has won the decisive battle against evil, and reigns over all things even if His enemies have not yet given up the fight. We are His people, and we benefit from His reign and His protection in ways that we can see and in ways that we will not know about until we are in glory. View Resource

  • The Son’s Anger Devotional

    Revelation 14:14–20

    A day is coming when all people will bow before Christ Jesus. At that point, His reign, which is a reality now, will be made completely visible. On that day, some will rejoice to see the return of the King, and no one will need to tell them to bow. Others will remain firm in their hatred of the universe’s rightful Ruler. Nevertheless, they will be forced to kneel. Jesus is as surely the King now as He will be on that final day, so let us serve Him with gladness today. View Resource

  • He Who Comes in Clouds Devotional

    Daniel 7:9–14

    We may not often use the title Son of Man when we refer to Jesus, but we must never forget the reality behind it. Jesus alone is the King of kings and Lord of lords. It is His will that stands supreme and must be obeyed even if it conflicts with lesser authorities. It is Him in whom we hope, not the kingdoms of men. When we look at the world around us we should be comforted that our Savior rules over all and that we are a part of His never-ending kingdom. View Resource

  • The Son of Man Devotional

    Mark 9:30–32

    Though we heed His teaching in the Gospels, we can forget that Jesus is a prophet. In fact, He is the prophet, par excellence. As the Word of God (John 1:1), He speaks, by the Spirit, throughout Scripture. Some people believe that Jesus has nothing to say about topics never mentioned in the Gospels, even if they are discussed in other biblical books. But all the doctrines of the Bible are the doctrines of Jesus, even if they are not directly recorded in the Gospels. View Resource

  • Son of Man Devotional

    Daniel 7:9–14

    Enemies of the faith say that Jesus never claimed a special heavenly status or kingship for Himself. But, as we have seen, when Jesus calls Himself “Son of Man,” He is claiming to be sovereign over all things. Pray for those who will not submit to Christ’s rule that they may see that they owe obedience toward the King of kings. View Resource

  • The Ruler and Judge Devotional

    Revelation 1:9-19

    We have looked at ten encounters with Christ. We have seen people fall on their faces before Him while others walk away unaffected. We cannot gaze on His face—yet—but we can know Him through His Word. Let us seek Him there, always remembering that “ ‘Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’ ” (John 20:29b).
