“Then He said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the One who is the stairway between heaven and earth.”
Jesus is our stairway to heaven.
If we just stopped this devotion there, that would be enough to fill us for the day right?! What a powerful and deep statement. Yet what elevates this passage to an even deeper and surreal understanding, is that Jesus said it about Himself. It is such a clear demonstration of Jesus’ role in our salvation and our relationship with the Father, that it cannot be denied. Moreover Jesus Himself spoke this truth. When Jesus says, ‘I tell you the truth’, we can pretty much guarantee that what He is about to say is 100% the truth. He plainly and clearly told His disciples that they will all see angels ascending and descending into heaven from earth, on a heavenly stairway, which was HIMSELF.
It is Jesus Himself, who is the connection, the link and the stairway for not only the angels to ascend and descend into heaven, but for us too. It is through Jesus that we pray to the Father. It is through His sacrificial ransom for us that we stand before God forgiven and free. It is through Jesus that we can enter the Holy of Holies. It is Jesus that stands before the Father as our representative and on our behalf. He is the One that allows us access to a Holy God, regardless of how we see ourselves. Friends, Jesus is your access to Heaven. It is only through Him. He is your stairway to Heaven. Believe in Him, put your trust in Him and walk into God’s throne room through Jesus. It is the truth. Jesus said it Himself.
