Since Christ's ascension to Heaven the Grace of God keeps the Holy Spirit present in our lives. The enthronement of Christ allows the Holy Spirit to minister to the needs of humanity. In David's revelation we find these word's concerning an enthroned Christ.
Ps 110:1The ...LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Since Christ ascended to Heaven He continues to save and prepare members of His body for the Rapture of the Church. This preparation also includes deliverance from sin and disobedient conduct on this side of Heaven. This calling out of Christ's body is simply the Churches escape from the wrath and Judgement of an angry God that takes place during the seven year Tribulation.
The present tense enthronement of Christ allows the unbelieving world to hear the call of the Gospel, to turn from evil, and to accept Christ on this side of Heaven. From Heaven Christ in the Throneroom is what changes the heart on soul of all those who accept Him for personal forgiveness. This is the power of an enthroned Christ reaching the hearts of men and women like you and I. The builder of the Church I am writing about on this Blog is and enthroned Christ. Glory!
Divine Grace is the power of an enthroned Christ that allows any believing soul to have a clean heart and a God given righteousness on this side of Heaven.
2 Cor 5:21... For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
In the new birth a sinful man finds forgiveness because Christ purchased the Church with His own blood. After man is delivered from sin...he finds a new life from an enthroned Christ. This new life is governed by a living Christ that is seated in the Throneroom in Heaven.
Many things happen in the heart and soul "when" man believes and accepts Christ. The Bible teaches that man gets a new nature from God after his sins are forgiven. The Bible says man is given a God given righteousness in the new birth. This righteousness comes from an enthroned Christ. Christ is presently King and Head over the Church. Christ makes us righteous. Christ gives us peace. Christ gives us joy. Christ from His blessed enthronement in Heaven is able to make all these blessings possible for His Church...through the presence of His Holy Spirit. Glory! I can't see Him but I know He's there! He changes things because He rules from Heaven
Rom 14:17...For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Getting beyond Calvary automatically gets the believer into the Throneroom where Christ is presently seated...until Christ makes all His enemies His footstool. That's why the Apostle states the following words concerning the enthronement of Christ...
Col 3:1...If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
In recent studies on the Kingdom message we find two Kingdom's mentioned in the Bible. One Kingdom being a present and invisible Kingdom. The other Kingdom being a future and visible Kingdom. Both Kingdoms have an an enthroned Christ. In the present Kingdom Christ "rules" from His Spiritual Throne in Heaven. In the future Kingdom Christ will rule from His Physical throne in Jerusalem. By having a glimpse of both Kingdoms the student of the Bible is able to recognize where the Kingdom of God presently is...according to scripture. In the present Kingdom the Father is the one who "translates", "redeems", and "delivers" the unbelieving soul into the Kingdom of his dear son. This Kingdom is a spiritual and invisible Kingdom...where Christ is King... now, present tense.
Col. 1:13-19... Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell.
Until our precious enthroned Christ descends from Heaven to call out His Church to meet with Him visibly in the air...the Kingdom of God remains to be a spiritual and invisible Kingdom where Christ continues to be the...Head of the Church. Present tense. The Kingdom of God is now through the blessing of the Holy Spirit. The Kingdom of God is where every believer's righteousness, peace, and joy comes from. Glory! Christ is the King and the Church is His Kingdom!
