Felix Baumgartner’s record-setting jump from the edge of space captivated millions watching the event live online via YouTube. When the 43-year-old Austrian skydiver achieved the free fall in a pressurized spacesuit , he broke the speed of sound with the help of 3,000-pound capsule and a high-tech suit.
Sky adventurer Felix Baumgartner completed a 24-mile skydive Sunday, wrapping up a five-year effort to shatter a world record set 52 years ago by pilot Chuck Yaeger who broke the sound barrier for the first time in an aircraft on Oct. 14, 1947.
Imagine you going for a Sky adventure zooming out of planet earth through the solar system, speeding through the Milky Way galaxy and heading for heaven. That is what’s going to happen to all the believers. Jesus is coming soon to take His children home. The Scriptures promise that Jesus will return to this earth in the same manner that He left at His ascension.
Matthew 24:30 says, “They shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” He will come in the clouds literally, as a personal being (Luke 24:36-43, 50, 51), and His coming will be visible. Jesus is coming back to this earth to reward His people as He promised and to take them to the beautiful home He has prepared for them. He will restore to His children all of the joys and glories of Eden that Adam and Eve lost through sinning.
But how can you be a part of this incredible event? Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door [this door represents the human heart], and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in.” Revelation 3:20. Jesus knocks and asks to come into your heart so that He can change your life. If you turn your life over to Him, He will erase all your sins of the past (Romans 3:25) and give you the power to live a godly life (John 1:12).
