Be prepared to listen to a gripping message that will captivate and inform you from beginning to end. Although the passage of Scripture is in the New Testament, we learn that the Apostle Paul is quoting from an Old Testament psalm which refers to a celebration when David led a procession bringing the Ark of the Covenant to the Tabernacle. See how it refers to the order of events when Christ ascended to Heaven and reveals a prophetic view of what is yet to happen. Understand the significant role Church Age believers play in this.
