GOD’S CHILDREN AS PILGRIMS TO THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM:
MANIFESTATION OF GOD’S REIGN ON EARTH
Date: Jan 15, 2023
Sub Theme: God’s Reign 3
*Topic: The Throne of God*
Text: Rev 20:11-15
to visualise the heavenly Throne of God and
to expose the essence of God’s reign in heaven.
The Bible identifies heaven as the “Throne of God” (Isaiah 66:1), but also locates the Throne of God as “in heaven”(Psa 11: 4) Throne is the symbol of a reigning ruler. Therefore, God sits upon His heavenly Throne to rule eternally. The heavenly Throne of God is full of righteousness unlike some ungodly thrones of wickedness on earth. Only the righteous will be able to behold the face of God on His Throne and without command, the unrighteous will flee from beholding the face of the enthroned God in heaven. (Rev 20:11b)
From the Bible passage today, how can you describe the Throne of God? Rev 20:11. What does white symbolised? Ps 33:5
From the description f God’s throne, why is it different from the Throne of worldly ruler? Compare Ps 45:6-7a with Ps 2:2-3.
In line with Psalm 11:4-6, what is the essence of God’s reign in heaven?Compare with Rev 20:12-15.
What is the portion of the wicked and the righteous before the heavenly Throne of God? Rev 20:10; Rev 21:7-8
Unlike the corrupt earthly rulers who reign with terror and selfishness, the reign of God in heaven is with righteousness. The ungodly can never behold His righteous throne of judgement; therefore, they are bound to flee from His presence. As pilgrims to the heavenly kingdom of God, we have to follow the path of righteousness and manifest as true heirs to the King of kings so as to reign with him in eternity.
*Food for Thought*
No matter the reign of wickedness on earth, it has no place before God’s Throne in heaven.
Rev 20:11 “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them”.
