Jesus Christ: His Ascension into Heaven

Acts 1:6-11
6. When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 
7. And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 
8. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 
9. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 
10. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 
11. Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. 

Luke 24:50-53
50. And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 
51. And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 
52. And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 
53. And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen. 

Mark 16:19.
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
