WHO ARE THE PEOPLE OF THE GREAT THRONE? No. 1

PeopleThroneIt is our prayers, intercessions, and worship that take us beyond the veil into direct relationship with the final and most important piece of furniture in the entire tabernacle—the ARK OF THE COVENANT with the accompanying Shekinah Glory of God’s presence. This is the Throne of all thrones encompassing the Power of all powers, the Authority of all authorities, the Glory of all glories, and the Presence of the King of all kings.

This piece of furniture represents the whole aim and objective of man’s relationship with God. It is our prayers, intercessions, and worship that take us from the Holy Place into the Holy of Holies.

As we have stated in previous posts, the thick curtain that separated man from God was torn apart by the hand of God when Jesus Christ died at Calvary (Luke 23:45). Now through God’s amazing grace we have the priceless privilege of entering the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus Christ. Until this veil was torn in two, only the High Priest could enter the Holy of Holies to minister at this most Holy Throne. And he was only allowed in once a year! For approximately 1500 years, only the high priests of Israel were blessed with the awesome privilege to approach such a holy throne.

Now we have continuous and open access to this Throne, and yet so few avail themselves of the privilege. Is it because we are ignorant, lazy, or apathetic?

The importance of prayer, worship, and intercession is so amazingly important in our approaching this most holy Throne. Leviticus 16:12 says: “And he (the high priest) shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the LORD, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the veil; And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not.”

The coals of fire, coupled with the incense and the blood, were the only acceptable way into the Holy of Holies. Only then could man have audience with this most Holy God. If the high priest did not obey these laws completely, he would be struck dead. Wow!

What is the answer to the above title? The people of the throne are those who pray, intercede, and worship, pleading the powerful blood of Jesus.

To be continued.

Be encouraged.
