THE KING IS COMING
TO OCCUPY THE THRONE OF HIS GLORY
WE ARE THE THRONE OF
When the Son of man shall
come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit
upon the throne of his glory:
And the glory of the LORD
shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it
together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
For I reckon that the
sufferings of this present time are
not worthy to be compared
with the glory which shall be revealed
Pet 4:13) But rejoice, inasmuch
as ye are partakers of Christ's
sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also
with exceeding joy.
Pet 5:1) The elders which are
among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the
sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker [Gk: to share with others /// partner] of the glory that shall be revealed:
Know ye not that ye are the
temple of God, and that the
Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
24:14-16) And this gospel of
the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all
nations; and then shall the end
come. When ye therefore shall
see the abomination of
desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand
[he/she cannot sit in triumph for there is no furniture
ordained by God to sit upon] in
the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them
which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
= Gk: a detestation, (specifically)
idolatry /// (to stink);
to be disgusted, (by implication) detest (especially
of idolatry): - abhor, abominable.

implication) detest (especially
of idolatry): - abhor, abominable.
= Dict: self love; erotic gratification derived from admiration of one’s
own physical or mental attributes: a normal condition at the infantile
level of personality development.
You are the Tabernacle/Temple of God.
Inside the Temple of God, as pictured in type and shadow in the Tabernacle
of Moses, is “the holy place” and the Throne of God. The
throne of God is composed of the ark of testimony, made of shittim wood
(a biblical symbol of men), covered by the mercy seat (made of pure gold, a
symbol of the Holy Spirit), above which God dwells.
And thou shalt put the
mercy seat [Heb: a lid (used only
of the cover of the sacred Ark)] above
upon the ark [“of shittim
wood” Exo 25:10]; and in the
ark [Heb: (treasure) chest,
coffin] thou shalt put the
testimony [God’s testimony
began with the two tablets of stone, the Law, but ultimately, God’s
testimony became and is the Bible that He commands be in you
– as it was in type in the ark]
that I shall give thee. And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune
with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims [angels] which are
upon the ark of the testimony, of all things
which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.
And before him shall be gathered
all nations: and he shall separate them [a
continuous separation that began when God “divided the light from the
darkness” Gen 1:4] one from another, as a shepherd [Gk:
pastor] divideth his
sheep [obedience] from the goats [rebellion]:
And he shall set the sheep on his right hand
[the most commonly used most useful hand],
but the goats on the left [the
least useful hand, “left behind”].
Sheep and goats traveled mixed
(mingled) in the same flock. Interestingly, looking through their eyes, many
of the sheep looked about and
thought they themselves were goats,
and many of the goats looked
about and thought they themselves were sheep. However, in the end we shall be eternally separated into
whichever group we belong. Spiritually separated as well as physically
separated by the Righteous Judge (Jesus Christ, 2 Tim 4:8), who is the will
and wall of our separation.
Tim 4:8) Henceforth there is
laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me
only, but unto all them also that
love his appearing.
THE FATE OF THE SHEEP
Then shall the King say unto them on
his right hand [the sheep], Come,
ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you
from the foundation of the world [Gk:
kosmos “cosmos” (universe)]: For I
was an hungered, and ye gave me meat [Gk:
food]: I was thirsty, and ye gave
me drink: I was a stranger, and ye
took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me:
I was sick, and ye visited me: I
was in prison, and ye came unto me.
my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to
prepare a place for you.
1:4) According as he hath chosen
us [“Ye have not chosen me,
but I have chosen you” John 15:16] in him before the
foundation of the world [Gk:
kosmos “cosmos” (universe)],
that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Then shall the righteous [“his
sheep”] answer him, saying, Lord, when
saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee?
or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and
took thee in? or naked, and
clothed thee? Or when saw we
thee sick, or in prison, and came unto
thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily
[Gk: truth] I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it
= Gk: least (in size, amount, dignity, etc.): - least, very little
THE FATE OF THE GOATS
Then shall he say also unto them on
the left hand [“the goats”], Depart
from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the
devil and his angels: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no
meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave
me no drink: I was a
stranger, and ye took me not in: naked,
and ye clothed me not: sick,
and in prison, and ye visited me
And the beast was
taken, and with him the false
prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them
that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of
fire burning with brimstone.
20:10-15) And the
devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and
brimstone, where the beast and the
false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
And I saw a great white throne,
and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away;
and there was found no place for them. And I saw the
dead, small and great, stand before God; and the
books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in
the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead
which were in it; and death and hell
delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according
to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This
is the second death. And whosoever was
not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Then shall they [“the goats”] also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or
naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then
shall he answer them, saying, Verily I
say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it
not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And
these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life
