John 16:7

It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you, but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 

When Jesus left this world, He went to the Father.  His ascension was to a certain place for a particular reason.  To ascend did not mean merely “to go up.”  He was being elevated to the right hand of the Father.  The seat He occupies on His departure is the royal throne of cosmic authority.  It is the office of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
