Sit with Me on My Throne
“The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne” (Rev. 3:21).
This is a most remarkable promise given what follows into chapters 4 and 5. Revelation 4-5 describes the throne of which Jesus speaks.
We should reflect on what Christ meant when he referred to his “throne”, a throne on which his people, together with him, will sit. What we see and hear and feel in Revelation 4-5 is the pinnacle of biblical revelation. Taken together, there simply is no greater, more majestic, or breathtaking scene than that of the risen Lamb sitting on the throne, surrounded by adoring angels and odd creatures, with ear-popping peals of thunder and blinding bolts of lightning. The best part is Jesus is there. He is the focus of all creation, whether of Elders falling down, mesmerized by his beauty, or strange creatures singing endlessly of his holiness.
