While He was blessing them, He departed from them and was carried into heaven. We must note that the Savior ascended into heaven after He gave His blessing to His disciples. At the same time, we must remember that, as we read in the Acts of the Apostles, angels appeared to them as they were watching His ascension.
They said to them, "He will come in the same way as you have seen Him going into heaven." We must labor with all eagerness to understand that the Lord will descend to judge us in the same form and substance of flesh with which He ascended. Since He departed blessing His apostles, He will also make us worthy of His blessing when He returns. He will give us the same status as those to whom He is going to say as they stand at His right hand, "Come, you who are blessed by my Father, receive the kingdom."
