Feast of the Ascension Church celebrates the fortieth day after Easter, which always falls on a Thursday, six weeks after Easter, as a memento when the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to heaven.

Feast of the Ascension (Ascension) was originally celebrated with ghosts (Pentecost), but from the fourth century, it is celebrated as a day, respectively. Serbian name of this holiday comes from the fact that the very day of his salvation and redemption of mankind by the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, whereupon he ascended to heaven.

In fact, after his glorious resurrection of the Lord was staying with his disciples for 40 days, contacting them and teaching them (cf. Del. Ap. 1:3) to his sublime and the entire human race blagodatnoj science, which was of paramount importance to establish the Apostle the faith after escaping from Calvary and depression when they saw their sensei crucified on the cross, and through the apostles and the fortifications and the first, and all subsequent Christian faith in the resurrection and the redemption of the people the Lord Christ.

The significance of the Ascension for us Christians is manifold. First, it was the apostles finally established in the faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Messiah in the Old Testament had promised the people and about whom the prophets prophesied.

Second, he appeared on earth as a man, uniting in himself the divine and human natures in one - the Divine and human, living and do good to people as the most sacred and the most perfect creature ever could show in this ramshackle little island life, performed miracles worthy of admiration, spread science worthy of the greatest respect and that is why it people - Jews debased, spat upon, beaten and crucified on the cross on a hill called Golgotha​​, of Jerusalem, which resulted in the escape and race of the apostles, so that no act of his resurrection could not recover in (all) Apostle faith in his Messiah, until the Lord is, after Easter, stayed with his disciples for forty days and utvrćivao them in their science. Only when they are personally and sensually, make sure the miracle of his ascension into heaven, the apostles with great joy, returned to Jerusalem, glorifying and praising God for all that has happened and come true on their Master.

Third, the ascension of a spirited body, Savior showed that the body is made ​​for the glory of God and not for sin. He showed us what the future of our body, if we go his way, that will come after the general judgment of God and the resurrection of all.
