The Throne Of God, From Heaven To Earth

The Throne of God is now heaven, or in heaven (i.e. "Do not swear at all, either by heaven, for it is the Throne of God" Matthew 5:34-35, see also How High Is Heaven?), but, someday (for when, see the Fact Finder below) the Throne of God is coming to earth, because, as The Holy Bible plainly says, God is coming to earth.

The Throne Of God - Now In Heaven, Someday On Earth

The New Jerusalem God's Throne is now in heaven, as the verses below state and describe in great detail from a God-given vision to the apostle John. It was where Jesus Christ returned after His resurrection (see Resurrections) and ascension, and it is where He now awaits His Second Coming to prepare the way for God's coming:

"At once I was in the Spirit, and lo, a Throne stood in heaven, with One seated on the Throne! And He who sat there appeared like jasper and carnelian, and round the Throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald. Round the Throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clad in white garments, with golden crowns upon their heads. From the Throne issue flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder, and before the Throne burn seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God; and before the Throne there is as it were a sea of glass, like crystal."

"And round the Throne, on each side of the Throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures (see Cherubim), each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all round and within, and day and night they never cease to sing, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!"

"And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who is seated on the Throne, Who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who is seated on the Throne and worship Him who lives for ever and ever; they cast their crowns before the Throne, singing, "Worthy art Thou, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for Thou didst create all things, and by Thy will they existed and were created." (Revelation 4:2-11 RSV)

An account of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, approaching The Throne of God:

"And I saw in the right hand of Him who was seated on the Throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with Seven Seals; and I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?" And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, and I wept much that no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. Then one of the elders said to me, "Weep not; lo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that He can open the scroll and its seven seals."

"And between the Throne and the four living creatures and among the elders, I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth; and He went and took the scroll from the right hand of Him who was seated on the Throne. And when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and with golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints; and they sang a new song, saying, "Worthy art Thou to take the scroll and to open its seals, for Thou wast slain and by Thy blood didst ransom men for God from every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and hast made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on earth." (Revelation 5:1-10 RSV)

After all has been completed (i.e. after The Return Of Jesus Christ, after His earthly rule for 1,000 years with The Elect, and after the Judgment and purification of the earth by fire - see Planet On Fire!), the Throne of God is coming to earth with the New Jerusalem:

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a loud voice from the Throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be with them; He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away." And He who sat upon the Throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." Also He said, "Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true." (Revelation 21:1-5 RSV)

"Then he showed me the river of the water of life [see Living Waters], bright as crystal, flowing from the Throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. There shall no more be anything accursed, but the Throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall worship Him; they shall see His face, and His Name shall be on their foreheads. And night shall be no more; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they shall reign for ever and ever. And he said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the Prophets, has sent His angel to show His servants what must soon take place. And behold, I am coming soon." Blessed is he who keeps the words of the Prophecy of this book." (Revelation 22:1-7 RSV)
