Weekly Pursuit – Week 1 of March

Verses:

Acts 2:36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made Him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you have crucified.”

 

Excerpts:

Through His crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension, the Lord Jesus was brought to the throne. This is why we declare, “Jesus is Lord” and why we call, “O Lord Jesus.” God has always been the Lord, but now a man is on the throne as the Lord. God has made Jesus, a Nazarene, the Lord, and now today the Lord of heaven and of earth is a man.

 

The Lord Jesus led the way to the throne. He was the Pioneer, the Forerunner, cutting the path to the throne. This indicates that He is not the only man destined for the throne. He has cut the path and has taken the lead so that we may follow. He was the first one to the throne, and we will come after Him. Now we are marching to the throne, for God intends to bring us into glory and to set us on the throne.

 

In Revelation 3:21 the Lord Jesus says, “He who overcomes, to him I will give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat with My Father on His throne.” The Lord Jesus seemed to be saying that He became a man, and as a man He went to the throne. God’s intention is to take us to the throne. His desire is to make us people of the throne. God’s kingdom cannot come in full until we are on the throne. Furthermore, God’s enemy will not be subdued until we are on the throne. God’s goal, therefore, is not merely to deliver us out of hell but to bring us to the throne. (Life-study of Ezekiel, msg. 12)
