Ascension = doctrine of Christology pertaining to the transfer of our Lord’s true humanity from planet earth to the third heaven in a resurrection body,
ACT 2:34.

Session = doctrine of Christology pertaining to the glorification of our Lord’s humanity at the right hand of the Father, EPH 2:6.

Satan is trying to do what he can to stop God from fulfilling His promises to the Jews.

EPH 6:11 Pick up and put on the full armor from God, that you may be able to hold your ground against the schemes or the strategies of the devil.

You might want to check your motivation and ask if you are willing to endure God’s plan no matter what the calling is.

PHI 1:29 Because to you it has been graciously given with reference concerning Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer on behalf of Him,

Satan is the author of all anti-Semitism, and any Christian who gets hooked on anti-Semitism is in Satan’s camp, and is described in Phi 3 as an enemy of the cross.

EPH 6:12 Because our struggle is not against blood [people’s souls] and flesh [their old sin nature],

Semeion =
a sign, wonder, or a miracle, something that a lot of people see and draw conclusions from.

2TH 2:9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,

1CO 1:22 For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom;

Signs were given to the Jews, historical trends are given to the church.

Circumcision is a sign to the Jews that they are a new race, GEN 17:10-11; ROM 4:11.

GEN 17:11 And you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and you.

ROM 4:11 and he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while uncircumcised,

The Passover was also given to the Jews as a sign of the cross,
EXO 12:7-13.

The Sabbath was given to serve as a sign of the rest that God’s people should have, EXO 31:13-17;
EZE 20:12.

Bible doctrine or the word of God was given to the Jews as sign of the importance of doctrine, DEU 6:4-8.

The most important sign of all – the sign of the virgin birth.
ISA 7:14 “Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.”

LUK 2:12 “And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths, and lying in a manger.”

LUK 2:34 And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is appointed for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and for a sign to be opposed.”

JOH 20:30 Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book;
JOH 21:25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books which were written.

His second most important sign – the sign of the cross, JOH 2:18-21.
The sign of His death, burial and resurrection, MAT 12:39-41; 16:4;
JOH 2:19.

MAT 12:38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.”

MAT 12:39 But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign shall be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet;”

MAT 12:40 for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

PHI 3:10 that I may come to know Him, and the power of [behind] His resurrection and the participation of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;

Turn to 1CO 1:22

LUK 17:21 “For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
