Sermons about Throne
We have been invited by God to go through the Open Door, which He has provided. And once I do so, my issues, circumstances, trials or tribulations will no longer have merit. They no longer bind me: I can go UP and be FREE! Every time we PRAISE God, regardless of what we experience, the heavenly hosts, and the four and twenty elders cannot help but to join in! They never take a break nor do they rest from Praising and Worshipping God- nor should we. Don't wait until the battle is over- you have been freed and invited... therefore, Shout NOW!
Who sits on the throne of your heart? What king do you really serve?
What verdict did you come to when you look at Jesus? Who is He? The world celebrates Christmas. But December comes and goes, Christmas comes and goes, and nothing changes. Bethlehem does not change the worlds hearts. But how about your heart> Did Jesus change your heart? Are you a different person because of Him? Do you proclaim that He is the Savior of the World?
Jesus' Claim to the Throne of King David
The Messiah is still coming . . . the Solomon the Hebrews expected is still coming.
John had a great experience, one that most people never get to have. He got to see heaven before he died. Jesus showed him what was going on from the time He had gone up to heaven until He comes back to heaven. The first thing John saw was God on His throne. John described God by using colors: Jasper stood for God's glory, carnelian stood for God's holiness, and emerald stood for God's mercy. But not only was God the Father there, but the Holy Spirit was there too. He was described as fiery torches. There were different types of angels there as well. There were elders who represented God's holy people (people who believed in Jesus). There were living creatures that were God's servants and worshippers. Then there were regular angels who sang praises to Jesus. Jesus was described as a Lion and a Lamb. He was strong and victorious like a lion and was killed like a lamb at the sacrifice. John was showing that Jesus conquered by His death. Jesus received a scroll that revealed His inheritance from the Father as well as how He would get the inheritance. As it is opened, one seal at a time (with seven seals) we get closer to a new heaven and earth, where Jesus will reign forever, and there will be no more bad things to happen. But until the last seal is broken, evil will continue.
WHAT DO WE LEARN ABOUT GOD, THE GOSPEL, AND THE COMING-ETERNAL GLORY (Message #5 * Revelation 21:1-8) 03-29-2015
1. The God who is on the Throne ● Our God reigns: as the Sovereign, Eternal, Creator, Redeemer & Judge ● Our God seals His servants: & reveals to us (His servants) what must soon take place ● Worship the Lord God Almighty: who was, who is, and who is to come 2. The Apocalyptic Gospel ● Jesus Christ is Lord: and He is coming back ● The Lamb who was slain is worthy: and He has ransomed people for God ● The War has been Won: but the battle still rages ● God’s Command & Invitation: → Fear God & give Him glory → If you are thirsty, come… 3. The Coming-Eternal Glory ● God is making all things new: & He will dwell with us (His people) as our God ● Judgment Day is coming: & God will avenge the blood of His saints ● The Lord’s Command: worship God & keep the words of this book ● Surely Jesus is coming soon: and His grace is with us all
In my first sermon on Revelation I imagined if Revelation were an ocean then the first three chapters would be like wading in up to your waist. But at chapter four all of a sudden we are over our head and sinking fast. There is depth beyond fathoming from here on. With this major scene change let’s remember where we are. It’s the Lord’s Day about 60 years after the resurrection and ascension of our Lord. The beloved disciple of the Lord is exiled on the Island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea. From its shores he could see the hills of Asia Minor in the distance, the region of the seven churches. Those seven churches are under persecution from Satan and under great temptation to sin. The blood of martyrs is flowing, the tyranny of idolatrous Caesars holding sway, demanding worship be given to them. Internal sin was leading the church away from her first love. After all we have heard about the churches, our Lord gives to all churches in all ages a great gift of courage and encouragement, a blessing from heaven.
