Yes, Jesus loves us and died for us. Yes, He rose to take us to Himself for where He’s He loves us to be: “and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first to be raised from death and who is also the ruler of the kings of the world. He loves us, and by his sacrificial death he has freed us from our sins and made us a kingdom of priests to serve his God and Father. To Jesus Christ be the glory and power forever and ever! Amen.” Revelation 1:5-6 GNT.
