The Throne

Heaven is the focal point of the universe.

God’s throne is in heaven.

Justice and judgment proceed from the throne of God. There are many wrongs in the world as a result of sin. Wars rage. Oppression thrives. Dishonesty is rampant. Evil people seem to prosper. But God will make everything right. There will be a day of reckoning. The Psalmist declared: “Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne… “ (Psalm 89:14).

God’s throne is a throne of grace. While none deserve the privilege of prayer, God deals with us in grace. Thankfully, our merit is not a factor. We come to the throne on the basis of Christ’s death for us on the cross: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).

The throne of God is a place of breathtaking beauty. John described it as follows: “And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald… And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal…” (Revelation 4:2, 3, 6)

The throne of God is a place of praise: “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy… “ (Revelation 5:9).

Someday we will join the heavenly choir… and sing His praise!
