Before I go to the heart of the revelation of building the throne let me simply list some things about the throne. We all know that Moses saw the throne of God and the sea of glass. He was able to take 70 elders into that same vision so they could receive the same spirit. That same spirit was the nature of God and the graces with that nature. Moses asked the Lord if he had found “grace” the age of grace and God said no as it had not yet been given. David saw the same things concerning the throne and asked the same question and got the same answer. Now today we are stuck on redemptive grace and do not even associate that the throne has multiple graces to draw from. Isaiah saw the throne as well and saw the train or mantel of a high priest filling the temple. This is symbolic of apostolic covering or mantling to insure consecration, abundance, and accomplishment coming forth.
The following characteristics are what Gods is building. It is descriptive of having Holy Community with each other and esteeming each other. It is descriptive of graces that we can draw from at different times.
• God’s throne is a place of power and authority. In 2 Chron 18:18, the prophet Miciah relates his vision of God’s throne room, in which spirit beings stand in attendance. It is a place of Gods rule.
• God’s throne is a place of majesty and honor. The Bible says that, when Jesus ascended to heaven, He “sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Heb 12.2). There is no higher place than heaven. God is the King of heaven, and Jesus holds the place of honor at Gods right hand. So it is a place of honor and esteeming each other like the Godhead does. The throne is a place of non- competiveness and a place of valuing each as an individual and all as a collective.
• God’s throne is a place of perfect justice. “He has prepared His throne for judgment” Ps 4:7. Justice will prevail when Gods throne is in place. This is the place of imprecatory prayer and coming before the courts of heaven to petition that decisions be rendered.
• God’s throne is a place of sovereignty and holiness. “God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne” Ps 47:8. The throne has always been in place and will forever be in place. It is the ultimate rule full of mercy and grace and full of judgment and righteousness.
• God’s throne is a place of praise. John’s vision of heaven includes a scene in which a “new song” is sung in praise to the One who occupies the throne. Rev 5. The creative dimensions of God are endless.
• God’s throne is a place of purity. Only the redeemed, those who have been granted the righteousness of Christ, will have the right to stand before His throne.
• Rev 14:5.God Throne is a place of eternal life. A life giving flow. Rev 22:1.The throne radiates this life as he holds all things in his hands.
• God’s throne is a place of grace. Not only does the throne of God represent judgment for the unbeliever, but it also represents mercy and grace for His children. “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” Heb 14:16. It is not just a singular grace but is full of graces.
• God’s throne is a meeting place of the elders. Rev 4:10-11.Before the throne the sea of glass is in motion. It is the meeting place of heaven. This is where the elders are seated on their thrones and the place they bow down and cast their crowns.
Now this is quite a list and not all inclusive by any means. So what does it mean to build a Throne? All I know is the throne is everything we see in heaven which included specifically everything around the throne as well. Tomorrow part
