Passage: Luke 23:44

Christ Ascended Up On High

And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour

(LUKE 23:44)

Why was the earth darkened? not only to demonstrate the dignity of Him that bled, but, perhaps to shadow forth that still more deep and dismal darkness, which the soul of the Messiah was then experiencing, under the awful withdrawings of His Father’s countenance. When His Father’s sensible presence returned, and Jesus, with His dying breath, declared His sufferings fulfilled, light revisited the earth, and the sufferer was received into glory. Joy was again in heaven (never to be absent more); when the human soul of Christ ascended from the cross. With what eclats [brilliant displays] of admiring transport was He seen of angels, when He rode on cherubs and did fly, and went up, to His throne as on the wings of the wind!
