The Throne of Grace
(Rm4:16; He4:14-16)

God is the gracious Father (2Th2:16).
By grace He gives birth to children and nurtures them.
By grace He inherits the throne to them.

Faith is honoring, trusting and loving Him and
The life of this faith is about considering any suffering as grace and overcoming in order to
become co-heirs with Christ (Rm8:17).

Although a father is expected to provide financial and emotional security for the family, and
Be the hope for the children and the role model of life,
Because of their ignorance, incompetence, irresponsibility, excessiveness etc
Many of them have become the object of their children’s disrespect, criticism, and even hatred.
If not such perfect earthly fathers want to inherit to their children
Along with their flesh and blood an inheritance (Mt7:9-11),
How much more for the heavenly Father (Mt23:9)?

All men became hell-bound because of their ancestor Adam who sinned (Ge3:4-6; Mt25:41),
Deceived by the fallen archangel who attempted to ascend (Is14:12-15)
The throne in the spiritual heaven prepared for the Son (Col1:16).

To the childless Abram God gave a seed and
Made heir the son who is of his own flesh and blood (Ge15:2-4) and
Promised that He would be the God of his descendants for generations to come (Ge17:7),
Because of such even in the midst of the gentiles they kept their bloodline (Ge34:14).

Through Moses God led the Israelites out of their slavery in Egypt and
Let them pass through the vast and dreadful wilderness (Dt8:14-16) so that
By grace He would make them His servants (Jer31:2).

The mercy seat in the sanctuary and the vase inside the ark (Ex25:21)
Reminded them for generations their distinguished bloodline,
The kingdom of priesthood and the promised land of Canaan (Ge17:8; Ex19:6).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would give birth to those who believe His name to become children of God for
Becoming an heir would be not by the flesh and blood of man or deeds (Jn1:12-13)
But by grace (Rm4:16).
He is the Word in the beginning who became flesh and born of heaven (Jn1:1, 14; 1Co15:47)
Not born of natural descent or human’s will (Jn1:13).

As He died, Yeshua said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Received the name of the Father as inheritance and became the Heir of all things according
to the Father’s will (Jn17:11; Php2:9; He1:2, 4);
2) Condemned the angel who forgot his position of serving those who will inherit (He1:14; Jude1:6); and
3) With His sprinkled blood gave birth to children (He12:24; 1Pe1:23).

He resurrected and sat on the heavenly throne of grace (Rev22:3).
The Holy Spirit of grace who was sent from there (He10:28)
Testifies the name of Yeshua (Ac1:8).

The true Christian is he who
By grace received the forgiveness of sin,
By grace been given birth as a child of God,
By grace received the name Yeshua as inheritance.
By grace has the promise to inherit the throne in heaven.
Therefore, whatever temptation of the wilderness comes his way (He4:15-16)
He considers it grace and overcomes
By approaching the throne of grace in his time of need and kneels before Him for
When the King of kings Christ comes in glory to the air
He longs to reign on earth for a thousand years (Rev20:4-6) and
Finally be seated on the throne in heaven for ever and ever (Rev22:5).

O Lord,
Gracious Father,
How amazing is Your grace that You saved this sinner from hell and
Also promised a throne in heaven for me!
Let us all open our eyes and see heaven and the thrones in it.
Let us endure and overcome to become mature as heirs of God and co-heirs of Christ!
Amen.
