A GLORIOUS THRONE

By Bible Names of God


      Isai 22:23 And I will fasten him [as] a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house.

      We have here the suggestion of "the Father's house", which is Heaven, and the "Glorious Throne" which that house contains, and that "Throne" is our Lord Jesus Christ, for "throne" is often used as a symbol of royalty and regal authority. We read in Rev 4:2,3 of a "throne which was set in Heaven and One sat on the throne. And He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone [a stone from Sardis, red in color; "carnelian"-RSV]; and there was a rainbow about the throne". It is before this throne that we pay our devotions and present our requests (heb 4:16; 8:1) in perfect assurance that we will "obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need".

      Oh, Thou Glorious One, accept our adoration and put Thy pierced hand upon our heads today. Amen.
