You have ascended on high. You have led away captives. You have received gifts among men, yes, among the rebellious also, that Yah God might dwell there.(Psalm 68:18, emphasis added)
All of Christendom is convinced that Christ Jesus ascended to heaven and sits now at the right hand of the Father. Christ Jesus leads a host of captives in a long procession. Christ Jesus receives the gifts of praise and worship. We are captivated by the scope of the procession; the captives in the Lord’s train. Even “among the rebellious” Christ did go. Even the rebellious are part of God’s eternal Kingdom. That “God might dwell there.” Profound. Where is “there?” The Lord dwells in heaven and it is the rebellious who are drawn to Him there. This is Impartial Grace.
