The Unseen Real: Life in the Light of the Ascension of Jesus

by Stephen Seamands

The early Christians believed that when Jesus ascended into heaven he had been installed and exalted as King, reigning as Lord of all. Today, it’s more tempting to view Christ’s kingship as only symbolic—as we treat contemporary British monarchs. With sin and suffering, pain and brokenness, evil and injustice all around, how dare we proclaim that Jesus is reigning now? So we push his kingship off into the future when he returns. 

In The Unseen Real: Life in the Light of the Ascension of Jesus, Dr. Stephen Seamands explores the ascension of Christ, not as it relates to the past or the future but to the “here and now.” 

The ascension means that Jesus is King and humanity is exalted. He is always personally present with us and gives us power to rule over our enemies. We have been called to join Him in his on-going ministry of intercession and in his mission to the world.

 The ascended Christ invites you to an ascension-shaped life. “To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne” (Rev 3:21). This book can help you discover what that means.

Really, another Book of the Month?

We know, we know. There is nothing special or super-imaginative about having a book of the month. After all, every publisher and their mother and Oprah has a book of the month, right?

So here’s the powerful part. You buy the Seedbed Book of the Month and we send you two of them. Yes. We send you an extra book at no additional cost!

Maybe you are scratching your head and asking why we would we do such a thing. After all, you don’t need two copies of the same book. Exactly. We want you to sow the other copy into someone else’s life. We want to invest in strengthening your relationships with other people. It could be your neighbor, friend, pastor, or family member across the country.

We think the best way to sow life changing ideas is not through retail sales strategies but through relationships we have with our friends. For us, it’s always been about sowing for a great awakening—sowing into your life and helping you to sow into the lives of others. 

So how about it? Will you jump in with us? If so, start praying now about where you will sow your extra book.
