“Next I saw in the right hand of the One sitting on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals; and I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” But no one in heaven, on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or look inside it. I cried and cried, because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or look inside it. 5 One of the elders said to me, “Don’t cry. Look, the Lion of the tribe of Y’hudah, the Root of David, has won the right to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:1-5, Complete Jewish Bible
Many down through the centuries have sought glory, fame, control, “to be the top dog, and sit/stand on the top rung of the ladder.”
And yet, the One Who created all, the Creator Himself, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, is alone the One we are to worship. Notice in the verse above that He, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David (revealing His king lineage) is “sitting on the throne.” Continually. Never to be removed or replaced by another. He is Jesus.
It is not Satan, though he tried. Nor the latest rock star. Not even the queen of Hollywood, or the king, governor, or whoever is on any given day, on any other created throne. Nor is it any pandemic, lab-produced virus, or unlawful act. Not at all. Never.
But only Jesus. Yeshua.
And what did our King, Our Lord, Our Savior, say about Himself, among other truthful and factual truths?
“And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.” John 12:32, NASU
Jesus said this before going to the cross, to die in our stead. But because only He led the sinless, spotless life, the perfect Lamb of God, only He deserves all the praise, glory, and honor due His Name. Only His Name is to be raised above any and all names, either here on earth or in heaven. And if we lift His Name up, in word, deed, and all manner of life, He promised that He would draw all men to Him and give us and them life. New life.
As I listened this morning (as I regularly do at 7:00 EDT M-F)) to Moshe Malespin and his Galilean friends, who today led worship at the new Vertical Worship building at the Aliyah Return Center near the Sea of Galilee, the Lord again reminded me that it is He Who sits on the throne, the only One Who is to be worshiped. We are not lifting any virus name, any political figure, nor anyone who seeks to take His rightful place.
We are created beings, humans placed on this planet for one main purpose – to know and love God the Father, along with His family Jesus, Yeshua, His Beloved Son, and the Third Person of the Trinity, Holy Spirit. Their eternal plan and purpose have always been to share the love they have, with us who so long to be loved and know the full meaning of life. They love large family.
When we daily commit our lives to Him, keep our eyes fixed on Him, give Him the glory due His Name, then His presence fills, guides, and directs our steps. Faith, hope, and love can only be the resulting end.
Bless the Lord today! Give Him thanks for life, for health, for protection and provision He has truly brought us. Be confident in His rule over all the earth, as soon and very soon we will see with our natural eyes what He has so much accomplished in the spiritual realm.
The battle rages on, but our God is seated on the throne!
Ahava and shalom,
Steve Martin, Love For His People Founder/President
