Encouragement From

Throne
Greek: θρόνος
Transliteration: thronos
Definition:Throne, a seat, power, dominion, a potentate.

1Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. What house will you build for Me? says the LORD, Or what is the place of My rest?2But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

3For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

4Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.5 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Do You Have The Assurance That Jesus Christ Lives In You?

Bill Freeman

What the Bible Says

The most basic thing in your relationship with God is to have the assurance that Jesus Christ lives in you. The Bible guarantees that you can have this assurance.

"God was pleased to reveal His Son in me." Galatians 1:15-16

"Behold, I [Christ] stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him." Revelation 3:20

"Do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?" 2 Corinthians 13:5

"God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." Colossians 1:27

"If Christ is in you, the spirit is life because of righteousness." Romans 8:10

Since the Bible reveals that man can have the definite assurance that Christ lives in him, how do you personally gain this assurance?

Understanding

The first step in gaining the assurance that Jesus Christ lives in you is to understand that man was created with an inner capacity for Christ to live in him. The Bible describes this capacity by telling us that man is composed of three parts:

"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 5:23

The human spirit is the place in man where Christ comes to live:

"The Lord who...forms the spirit of man within him." Zechariah 12:1

"The one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him." 1 Corinthians 6:17

"That which is born of the Spirit is spirit." John 3:6

"The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit." 2 Timothy 4:22

When you receive Christ, He enters directly into your spirit and you are born again.
