Will You Sit With Jesus in His Throne?

“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” (Revelation 3:21)

Jesus said that those that “overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame…” This lets us know plainly that we, like Jesus, will also have to come through great tribulation, to be able ovecome. Much of this will happen at the hands of loved ones and long time friends who supposedly are saved. But when we ourselves awake out of lukewarmness, the spirit that some of our “friends” really are of gets offended, and then goes to resisting us. It is very hard for those who believe they are “rich and increased in goods” (whether physical or spiritual goods) to forsake their own riches to receive the true riches in Christ Jesus.

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.” (Matthew 19:23-30)

But this throne is a spiritual one. One where we also can reign over all the evil of this life, and by holy living judge by living the righteous judgements found in the Word of God.

  • “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3)
  • “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us” (2 Timothy 2:12)

Note: how we over come, as he overcame – by suffering for his sake. And also note, if we are suffering right, we will still maintain a sweet spirit and be able to continue worshiping Jesus from the heart. And it is this spirit of worship that raises our spirit right up to the throne of Jesus Christ!

“And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.” (Revelation 4:2)

  1. Thank you again brother Richard for your refreshing reviews. With you I always receive the right spirit of revelation. The spirit of comfort and not of fear, the spirit of encouragement and not of condemnation. Here is the spirit that leads us into God’s Spirit who lifts us high into God’s throne, that we may worship Him in spirit and in truth.

    Thanks also for reminding us that our persecution is right around the corner…friends, family and others who are envious of the new Way we have chosen, to walk through the flesh of Christ…they are sorry to see us go and will do everything in their power to encompass us around.

    But thanks unto Jesus Christ, even Jehovah-Savior who has overcome, that we may also overcome through Him and enjoy the peace He gives to all His brethren who draw nigh to the throne of grace.

    Have mercy over them O Lord, that they may repent of their evil ways.

  3. Thank you Bro Francis! It is a privilege to walk in the footsteps of the Savior. Not always easy, as our Lord was “… despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:3-5) Yet this is how we commune with him, and how we over come, even as he overcame.

  4. Dear Richard,

    I found your webside just by searcing for a picture.
    The picture on top of this page “Jesus with His children” is just a part of a painting that was in my bedroom as a little boy long, long ago.
    Please can you help me to find the complete picture?

    Best Regards,

    Rutger

    • I probably found this picture of Jesus with the children on a sore that supports a Creative Commons license designation for free reuse such as: flickr or wikimedia.org. If you found out the official title of the painting I think you could search for a place to purchase it from. Lord bless…
