Men may ascend

More from William Beveridge's Sermon 83 (line breaks mine):

That this Divine Person, in that nature, lived several years upon earth, and then died for the sins of mankind, in whose nature He did it:

that in the same nature He rose again from the dead, ascended up to Heaven, and is there set down at the right hand of the throne of God:

and, that He is there now the Mediator between God and men, having given Himself a ransom for all, to make up all differences between them, and so to reconcile both God to men, and men to God :

so that by Him, as a middle person between both, God is pleased to condescend so low as to manifest Himself to men, and men may ascend so high as to behold and enjoy God.
