God On Earth
by Wayne Blank
"Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them"
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."
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."
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)
