The Throne that Speaks

I mentioned that a development of the reality of the Godhead is starting to come to me. I don't still know if it can be explained. It must be spiritually comprehended. In that way the Spirit of God has given me some insight into the way John the Revelator describes what he sees in heaven.

All the quotes below are from the Book of Revelation.

First Event
16:17The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, "It is done!" 18Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.

Who was speaking? Jesus? The Father? The Holy Spirit? Who is that sitting on the Throne? I started to see that the speaking creatively was the same voice that spoke all things into existence. Note that a Person doesn't speak, the authority speaks. The Throne.

Second Event

21:3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

Note once again, the authority, the sovereign, the throne speaks. The position. High and Exalted.

Now, you might say, that is good in heaven, but I'm here on earth and struggle to comprehend the Holy Spirit, Jesus and Father God.

Lets look at the third example:
22:1Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
Wait, now water is flowing from the throne. Healing water. Fruit bearing water. Watering trees. Clear.

What is that. I submit that if we take Jesus at his word that out of YOUR belly will flow living water, Healing Water, Fruit Bearing Water, Watering Those around you, Clear, Fresh, then, what would that be? I submit that it is the THRONE SPEAKING from you. Speaking words of life, encouragement, healing, bearing fruit, fresh, clear. You never will thirst again. You will be like a tree planted by fresh water, you will water others. This THRONE in you waters others and when HE is enthroned in your spirit you never lose the effect.

The Throne of God is in heaven, it's a real place, but the Tabernacle is in your heart is exactly as it is in heaven. An exact replica. Hebrews 9:23-speaks of this.

Last example

22:3No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. 6The angel said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place."

Now it all comes home. No more curse. He is in us, we flow in his strength, we see His face, His name is on us. We are marked. We don't live in darkness if we find ourselves there, he enlightens us. We are destined to reign, here and over there. But first here. On this side of the veil.

The last part of this passage is to keep those who are called to speak the word of God by the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Our words will be trustworthy, true. Our God is the God of our Spirit as a Prophet. He sends angels to show us what must soon take place.

The Throne Speaks. He speaks in Heaven. He speaks on earth. The throne is the authority of Father Son and Holy Ghost. We see him face to face as Jesus. He dwells and flows in and thru us.

I am coming to comprehend the fullness of God living in me, in you, not a portion, the fullness. Not making me a god. Making me a vessel that he fills, continues to fill, fills again and then pours out.

It's an awesome privilege, it's an awesome wonder.

I have come to understand that all the fullness of the Godhead in the indwelling throne dwells in us all. As the Throne dwells in heaven. In that way Heaven touches Earth. On earth as it is in Heaven.

Earth Trembles, the whole earth shakes. As we speak. The earth moves.

I don't know if anyone will grasp what I am trying to say. This is words trying to explain the unexplainable. I suspect that if you flow in all this, it makes all the sense in the world. If you don't it will only frustrate you.

SPEAK THRONE - I'm listening.
