We are Citizens of Heaven and Ambassadors to Earth
"namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." 2 Corinthians 5:19-21
We are His ministers of Reconciliation.
"For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;" Philippians 3:20
There is a reconciliation happening right now.
"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household," Ephesians 2:19
We are JUSTIFIED, SANCTIFIED, and GLORIFIED.
"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified." Romans 8:28-30
Good is sooooo good, and He is restoring ALL "GOOD" through you and me. His "GOOD" is His Glory, HIS ESSENCE, and we are made in His image, and He's called us to SHINE His Glory.
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2
Glory is the GOODNESS of GOD!
"Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." Philippians 4:8
Behold, a profound truth should fill our hearts with awe and joy: there is a HUMAN on the Throne in Heaven, and His name is JESUS!
As we fix our gaze upon Him, the author and perfecter of our faith, we see a Savior who endured the cross and now sits at the right hand of the Throne of God. This revelation, my friends, changes EVERYTHING. It's a truth that should be proclaimed far and wide.
In the Book of Revelation, we are shown a vision of the water of life flowing from the Throne of God AND OF THE LAMB. The significance cannot be overstated—there's a Human on God's Throne in Heaven, and He invites us all to partake in the ABUNDANT LIFE.
Yet, many remain unaware of this incredible reality. Most Christians don't fully grasp that Jesus, fully God, humbled Himself to become fully HUMAN, justifying all of mankind. Now, He reigns on the THRONE of HEAVEN, the THRONE OF GRACE. This, my friends, is the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel—a divine invitation for EVERYONE to come HOME!
We have lost sight of this profound knowledge as a society and church. Jesus, seated on the Throne of Grace, longs to reign and rule with us, in us, and through us. It's time to draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, receiving mercy and finding grace to help in our time of need.
So, let's get real. A HUMAN is living and reigning on the Throne of God in Heaven, from the Throne of Grace. Jesus is calling each of us to join Him in this divine endeavor. He's searching for His Bride, His church, to unite with Him and become ONE.
The time has come for us, the Body of Christ, to regain the KNOWLEDGE of GOD. Jesus reigns with a heart of GRACE and PEACE, and He's extending His authority to us to co-rule and co-reign on Earth.
We are citizens of Heaven, ambassadors to Earth, and ministers of Reconciliation. We are JUSTIFIED, SANCTIFIED, and GLORIFIED. We are made in His image, called to reflect His GOODNESS and GLORY.
It's time to embrace this truth, to live it out, and to invite others to join this incredible journey. Together, we can experience the fullness of His love, the depth of His grace, and the brilliance of His glory.
Let's not miss this divine invitation. The Human on Heaven's Throne beckons us to share in His reign. Will you answer His call and step into a life of RADICAL GENEROSITY and Self-Giving Love? The choice is yours.
