[*]o[*] : Ascension

We read in the fifth chapter of Genesis that Enoch pleased God, and was translated into Paradise. Enoch, who pleased God, is a type of Christ, who pleased the Father on high, and was therefore thought worthy to ascend to the heavenly Paradise --that is, heaven--for, in the day of His ascension, He exalted Him above all the choirs of angels.
We read in the second book of Kings, second chapter, that when Elijah the prophet was raised into heaven in a fiery chariot, Elisha cried out, "My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof." Elijah is a type of Christ, whom His apostles, typified by Elisha, saw ascending into heaven, and wondered when Christ said unto them, "I go unto My Father."
Ps. xlvii.5 God is gone up with a shout: the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. Isa. lxiii.1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah?
