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!
