Sermons about Throne
Looking at what man faces if he has to stand before the Great White Throne of God.
Preacher: John Rubens. Passage: Hebrews 4 v16. God's grace is central to our faith, and it is to the throne of that grace that we come.
Preacher: Pastor Tony Simpson. Passage: Philippians 2 vv9-11. God the Father has exalted his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, after he willingly humbled himself even to the point of death on a cross. He has given him the throne of heaven and the divine name, Lord. Yet His exaltation will not be completed until the last day when Jesus' Lordship will be revealed to everyone who has ever lived, and all will bow before Him and confess His name.
This Advent Season, we're exploring Christian Hope. We look back at Jesus' first Advent in faith, believing that he came to do what we could not do for ourselves, died for our sin, and rose again triumphant over death. And we look forward to His return in hope, confident that when he returns he'll raise us to new life with him forever, restoring the world, and reigning as King amongst us. And while that is a glorious image, there's another aspect to Jesus' return that unsettles us: When he returns, he comes as Judge, bringing justice and righteousness to bear, dealing with sin, arrogance, and oppression, and setting the world to rights. And yet, in our passage, Paul says the return of Jesus as judge is reason for encouragement and hope. In light of the coming judgement, knowing that his judgment will be without partiality, how can we say his return is reason for Hope? How can we face judgement day with confidence?
Nehemiah, cup bearer to the ,understands the centrality of the throne and the king. He serves in the court of a pagan king but remains committed and faithful to the King of Heaven and Earth. A report about the condition of Jerusalem leads him to respond in prayer and concern over the city of God. In this concern he takes a request to the pagan king that he be allowed to return and help restore the city. The book of Nehemiah is about the results that Nehemiah was able to accomplish through God's favor, wisdom and Godly leadership. Not only are the walls rebuilt but faith is also restored.
