before His throne?
« on: February 16, 2013, 06:53:11 PM »
 :dontknow: When we worship the Lord, do you think we are 'before the throne'?  :cloud9:
What do you think?
Jesus prayed "Sanctify them by thy truth, thy word is truth" John 17:17

.."in Christ all shall be made alive.. but each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those at His coming.. & then when He delivers the kingdom to the Father.." [Mt 13:33/1Cor 15:22-26]

Not literally, maybe in the Spirit.
Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

Absolutely, not literally! I agree.. :smile:
not "in the flesh" body
Jesus prayed "Sanctify them by thy truth, thy word is truth" John 17:17

I've, as a rule, used that expression to signify God's authority.  When I go talk to my dad I go to see abba.  When I'm in need of the right answer, I go before the throne.  Not unlike the Catholic us of ex cathedra:  which ironically enough means throne.

18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
 
19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
 
20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:
 
21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)
 
22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
 
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
 
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

--Heb 12
