Q.But are the two natures in Christ not separated from each other if His human nature is not present wherever His divinity is?

A. Not at all, for His divinity has no limits and is present everywhere.1 So it must follow that His divinity is indeed beyond the human nature which He has taken on and nevertheless is within this human nature and remains personally united with it.2

Q.How does Christ’s ascension into heaven benefit us?

A. First, He is our Advocate in heaven before His Father.1 Second, we have our flesh in heaven as a sure pledge that He, our Head, will also take us, His members, up to Himself.2 Third, He sends us His Spirit as a counter-pledge,3 by whose power we seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God, and not the things that are on earth.4
