God the Father, or God the Son?

Within the realm of Christianity, there are two main views concerning God. The Trinitarian point of view believes that there is One God in three persons, and three persons in One God; all being truly distinct from one another; co-equal, co-eternal, and co-existent. “The Trinity is the term employed to signify the central doctrine of the Christian religion— the truth that in the unity of the Godhead there are Three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, these Three Persons being truly distinct one from another.” - (The dogma of the Trinity - Catholic Encyclopedia online.)

The Oneness, or Apostolic point of view is that there is One God and Father of all. God, who is a Spirit, overshadowed Mary and she conceived Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed to the world as The Son of God. Jesus became the visible manifestation of the invisible God. Jesus still abides with us, comforts us, and empowers us today through the indwelling of The Holy Spirit. These are not three separate and distinct persons, but rather three manifestations of the One God of the bible. He is Father in creation, Son in redemption, and Holy Spirit in regeneration.

It is important to note that the New Testament church began in approximately 33AD. The dogma of The Trinity was not officially developed as doctrine until 325AD, and later revised in 381AD. (See New Catholic Encyclopedia, 1977, vol. 13, pg. 1021 & American Encyclopedia Dictionary, pg 4189) It is also important to note that neither Jesus, the prophets, nor the apostles ever mentioned the terms, “The Trinity”, “One God in three persons”, “God the Son”, or “God the Holy Ghost”. Jewish believers and early Christians were Monotheistic: they believed in One God who cannot be divided and cannot have and equal:

Deuteronomy 6: 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: KJV

Isaiah 46: 5 To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like? KJV (See Isaiah 42: 8)

Ephesians 4: 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all…

In short, the Trinitarian belief is that God was a separate person from Christ; sending the Son down to earth. The Apostolic belief is that God was IN Christ, reconciling the world to himself. While both viewpoints believe Jesus to be the Son of God, Trinitarians believe He was God the Son in human flesh. The Apostolic belief is that Jesus was the revelation of God the Father in human flesh. God Himself came down to dwell among men through the person of Jesus Christ.

Another tragic loss within the apostolic Pentecostal church. Many prayers are needed for the families, the newly wedded husband, and the fiance. 🙏
There are some things we will never fully understand this side of eternity.
Keep trusting God. Cherish your family.

Dealing with a delicate question.

I want to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, but it goes against my family tradition. I fear that in obeying Acts 2:38, I would be abandoning my relatives who have passed away without ever receiving this revelation. They were God-fearing, good-hearted, sincere people. Are you insinuating they will not go to heaven?

I do not ever insinuate who is not going to be saved. We have one Righteous Judge, and He will have mercy upon whom He chooses (See Romans 9:15). Our commission as believers is to preach the gospel to every creature. God does the saving, and God does the judging. With that said, let me make a few points in defense of the salvation plan of the Bible.

Jesus said a person must repent, believe, and be baptized (See Luke 13:3; John 3:16; Mark 16:16). He also said we must be born again of water and of the Spirit and unashamedly follow Him in order to be saved (See John 3:3-5; Mark 8:34-38). Therefore, no scripture taken out of context, or any philosophy of man, can change the foundation laid by Jesus Christ.

That being said, I want you to be concerned with your own salvation, not what God may or may not decide about others. What have you learned in this Bible Study? What will you do with the overwhelming evidence of baptism in the name of Jesus? Sometimes we can get so caught up on trying to find reasons to avoid it that we miss the obvious: We cannot willfully disobey God and expect eternal life to be handed to us. We are responsible for the light we have been exposed to. (See Ephesians 5:7-14)

Let’s reverse things to make a point: Imagine I am an unchurched agnostic. You knock on my door and tell me I must accept the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior to be saved. I tell you I have thought about it, but I fear that in accepting Jesus I would, in essence, be condemning my parents. I go on to explain my parents were as good as they come and believed there was a God, but were not a part of any religion. They did not believe Jesus was the only pathway to salvation.

What would you do? Would you condemn my parents? Would you back off and encourage me to keep my family tradition? Or would you advise me to place them in God’s hands, and concern myself with my own salvation?

Respecting those who have gone before you, I am asking you to look forward in time to those who will come behind you. Transferring the focus from departed parents or grandparents, I am asking you to think about your children and grandchildren. Would you change your family tree if it meant drawing closer to God? Would you be willing to expose your family to more light? Again I ask, now that you know baptism in Jesus’ name is from God and not from man … what will you do with it?

In 1517, Martin Luther searched the scriptures for himself, went against the norm, and exposed the world to Justification by Faith. In 1609, John Smyth searched the scriptures, went against the norm, and water baptism by immersion was reinstituted. In 1739, John Wesley saw a need to preach holiness and separation. None of these men were as concerned with preserving family tradition as they were changing their family tree. All we have asked you to do in this bible study is to open your heart and search the scriptures for yourself. (Acts 17:10-12)

When it comes to good-hearted sincere people, remember it was Jesus who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6) Sincerity has never saved anyone, but it can be an avenue to finding Jesus.

In your Bible, Lydia loved God. There is no doubt she was sincere. But when she received a greater knowledge of truth, it blessed her whole family.

Acts 16:14–15 Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul. 15 And when she and her household were baptized…

It takes just one courageous person to change an entire household. The Philippian jailer opened his heart to the word of the Lord – and it changed his family tree. (Acts 16:27-34)

Cornelius opened his heart to the apostles’ message – and his entire household was born again. The entire chapter of Acts 10 is devoted to his story. He was religious; he was a giver of his finances; he prayed much; and he fasted much. According to modern day philosophies, Cornelius would definitely be considered saved. But according to the Bible, everyone must be born again, and it quickly became apparent Cornelius was not ready to meet the Lord. His very own testimony in the next chapter lets us know that he was not yet saved (See Acts 11: 13, 14). However, it was his sincerity and his faith that prompted God to send Peter with the gospel of salvation to him. Still today, the sincerity of those who fear the Lord will lead them to cross paths with a person who will present them with the gospel. When Peter began to preach to Cornelius and his family, something beautiful took place:

Acts 10:44-48 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. 45 And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. 46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, 47 “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.

This religious, sincere man went from the state of being “unsaved” to the state of being “saved.” And it did not happen by giving more alms to the poor or by praying and fasting more. He became saved when he was buried in baptism in the name of the Jesus, and when he (and his entire household) received the Holy Ghost, evidenced by speaking in tongues. It was like Acts 2 happening all over again!
Cornelius was clearly now born again of water and of the Spirit. (See John 3: 3 - 5)

Can we do away with the Acts 2:38 message just because there are so many good and sincere people out there who do not preach it or believe it? I personally would not want to take a chance on being saved any other way. It just could be that the very fact you have read this bible study to the end is a testament of your sincerity and desire to be saved. This just might be the instrument God has placed you in contact with to honor your search for truth.

If you have seen your need to obey Acts 2: 38, the very next verse will change your family tree forever:

Acts 2:39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.

May God bless you in a mighty way.

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 1 Timothy 1:15

Two main points here:
1. Christ came to save sinners.
2. You are one of them.

Paul didn't say, "of whom I WAS chief"; he made it present tense. Until you feel that YOU are the main culprit, the main reason, and the main hypocrite Christ had to die for, you will never fully comprehend the mercy of God. You didn't just need Him once, you need Him presently. When you finally do come to that realization, it will humble you like nothing else.

WAS JESUS "THE ETERNAL SON?"
If God and Jesus are One, what about Jesus being with God since the beginning of time?

Trinitarians believe that Jesus has eternally existed alongside God the Father since before the foundation of the world. However, there are only three possible ways that Jesus could have existed: As a physical being, as a Spiritual being, or in the mind and eternal plan of God. Trinitarians do not believe He existed in the eternal plan of God, but are divided over whether He existed as a physical or a spiritual being. The Bible will reveal the answer.

WHY IS THIS OBJECTION RAISED?
This objection is raised mainly due to the following scriptures:

John 1: 1 – 3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Philippians 2: 6 – 8 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. (See also John 8: 56; John 17: 5, 24)

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED WITH THIS OBJECTION?

1. If the Son was physically or spiritually present with God the Father since the beginning of time, how exactly did He become God’s son? Where was His mother? There has never been a son without the fusion of a father and a mother. And why is the third person – “God the Holy Spirit”, never given a relationship status to the other two? Or even a name for that matter?

2. Trinitarians refer to Jesus as “God the Son” and claim He was eternal. The Bible refers to Jesus as the Son of God and clearly states He was begotten. (John 3: 16) Did God have a Spiritual Son first, and then send him to become a begotten Son?

3. If the Son was physically or spiritually present with the Father in the beginning, how was He born at Bethlehem? Did God make Him disappear and then reappear in Mary’s womb? For the nine months of gestation, were there only two “persons” of The Trinity in operation?

4. If John 1: 1 is to be interpreted as “the Son was with The Father”, then you must also finish the verse by concluding that "the Son was The Father.”

5. If John was trying to teach us about the Trinity in John 1: 1- 3, why did he not mention the Word being with both God the Father AND The Holy Spirit?

6. God the Father does NOT share His glory with another. (See Isaiah 42:8)

7. God the Father does NOT have an equal. (See Isaiah 46: 5)

8. The Old Testament never mentions the existence of the Son – except when prophetic in nature. Ex., Genesis 3: 15; Isaiah 9:6; Psalms 22: 1.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE ACTUALLY MEAN?

The original Greek text used the word, Logos, where it has been interpreted as “Word”. In the beginning, the Logos was with God. The definitions of the word, “Logos” are descriptions such as “thought”, “mind”, “speech” and “plan”. This makes sense, because it was the spoken word, or the speech of God that created the world:
Psalm 33: 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

Did you notice the capitalization of LORD in Ps. 33: 6? This signifies God the Father (aka Yahweh, Jehovah). Did we forget that in Genesis 1, “God said let there be…and there was!”? Can there be more than one creator?

Isaiah 45: 18 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

John goes on to reveal that the Word (Logos) was made flesh, and dwelt among men. (See John 1: 14). If you are going to make the “Word” a separate person, what about His “breath”? The truth is, you cannot separate God from His Word or from His breath. The Word was God, and the Word became flesh. Conclusion? God became flesh and walked the earth in a human body. His name was Jesus. Jesus was the revelation and manifestation of the Word (Logos, eternal plan) of God, and the image of the invisible God. (See Col. 1: 15; 1 Timothy 3: 16; John 14: 9)

Jesus could not have existed as a physical being since the beginning, because the “Word was MADE flesh”. Flesh cannot be made into flesh. Jesus could not have existed as a spiritual being in the beginning, because that would mean that there were three spiritual beings present at creation – two of them somehow became related as Father and Son, and the third remains a mystery to this day. That theory is simply not supported by any scripture texts. The following scripture clearly causes those two theories to crumble:

Galatians 4: 4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law…

Did you grasp that? That is how God’s Son came into existence – He was made of a woman. This is in perfect harmony with John 1: 14 and John 3: 16 – “His only begotten Son”. That leaves us with only one undeniable explanation: Jesus existed in the eternal plan of God. Check this scripture out:

Revelation 13: 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

We know that Jesus was not actually slain until he died at Calvary in AD 33, but in the eternal plan (mind) of God He was slain from the beginning of the world. Similarly, In Jesus’ prayer in John 17, He says, “for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (v. 24)
God told Jeremiah, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee…” Jer. 1:5. Does anybody believe Jeremiah pre-existed in Heaven? What this means is that God knows the end from the beginning. God has always had a plan.

Concerning Philippians 2: 6 – 8, This does not teach “co-equal persons”, because God cannot have an equal (Is. 46:5). Jesus was the visible image (form) of the invisible God (Col. 1: 15) Why did He did not think it to be robbery (blasphemy) to be equal to God? Because He WAS God. Why did He not consider Himself to be robbing the glory from God? Because He and the Father were not two, they were One (John 10:30). The Pharisees knew exactly what He was claiming to be when He forgave sins. They wanted Him stoned for blasphemy, because who could forgive sins, but God only? (See Mark 2: 7) Though He was God incarnate, He willingly stripped himself of all Royal privileges to humble Himself in a human body and become obedient to death. The Jews were looking for a King; God threw them a curveball and came as a servant.

Conclusion
It is very important to note that John 1: 1 - 3 was written AFTER John had observed and absorbed every last word of Jesus, including His prayer in John 17. Yet John never declared that the Son was with God; he said the Word was with God. When the Word became flesh, that “holy thing” was given the title of The Son of God. (See Luke 1: 35) This is how the Son of God came into existence. God’s eternal plan was to come and redeem His people from their sins. (Genesis 3: 15) God the Father was made flesh and dwelt among men. (1 Timothy 3:16) The One who created the world, stepped into the world He created (John 1: 10, 14), and YOU were the reason why.

IF ANYONE TRIES TO TELL YOU THAT JESUS IS NOT GOD To this day, people are debating who Jesus is. The scriptures are clear: Jesus was the embodiment of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He was the image of the invisible God. Jesus is the one true God. However, many people deny this truth. Some say He was a myth, others say He was just one of many prophets. Some acknowledge Him as the Son of God, but consider Him only a man. Some (who realize He possesses Deity) have labeled Him, “God the Son,” and He is considered by them to be a distinct and separate person from God. Others believe He was Michael the archangel. They also refer to Jesus as a “mighty god,” but not the ALMIGHTY God. Others teach that He is an “elder brother,” Some go as far as to acknowledge Jesus to be the promised Messiah, but refuse to acknowledge His supreme Deity. I believe and contend that He was God manifest in the flesh. The following are just a few objections that I have received, and some short answers.

OBJECTION # 1: A man cannot become a god, so how and when did Jesus become God?

Answer: This is true, but God can become a man. Jesus didn’t “become” God; God (The Father) became Jesus. (John 1: 1, 10, 14; 1 Timothy 3: 16)

OBJECTION # 2: Numbers 23: 19 says that “God is not a man that he could lie…”
So there you have it: Jesus could not have been God, since he was a man.

ANSWER: It is true that God is not a man: God is a Spirit (John 4: 24), but that Spirit manifested Himself in flesh. Jesus was the manifestation, or the personification, of the invisible Spirit of God. (1 Tim. 3: 16; Col. 1: 15) This is why He was called Immanuel, which being interpreted was “God with us”. (Matt 1: 23)

OBJECTION # 3: 1 Timothy 2: 5 calls Jesus a man – merely a “mediator” between God and men.

ANSWER: This falls right in line with Monotheism – the belief in One God. There is ONE GOD, Period. Not two or three equal “persons”, not “God the Son” nor “God the Holy Spirit”. Just plain and simply One God and one mediator between God and men. The “man” Christ Jesus was the human body that was given as a ransom for our sins. The “man” Christ Jesus was unlike any other man born on the face of the earth: He had no biological father. His Father literally was the Holy Spirit of God. (Luke 1: 35) That is why this “man” could silence the winds with His voice, heal the sick with His command, and open blind eyes with His touch. He was no ordinary man. He was God in human flesh.

OBJECTION # 4: The bible says there is one God, and one Lord. This separates God from Jesus.

ANSWER: Again, this is still perfectly in line with Oneness teaching. Since “Hear O Isreal, The LORD our God is one LORD” (Deut: 6: 4), and Jesus is given the title of “Lord Jesus Christ” (Luke 2: 11; Acts 9: 5; Acts 2: 36) in the New Testament, then this is further proof that Jesus is the personification of the One God of the bible. “God” and “Lord” are not indicative of separate persons, but synonymous of the same:

John 20: 28 --"Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"

OBJECTION # 5: God cannot die: yet Jesus died. So Jesus cannot be God.

ANSWER: You are correct in that God never died, for God is a Spirit. (John 4: 24) The fleshly body of Jesus (the Son) is what died on the cross. Yet the bible still called the blood that was shed “God’s own blood”. (Acts 20: 28) and furthermore tells us that God laid down His life for us. (1 John 3: 16) How could this be, unless God was manifest in the flesh? (1 Tim. 3: 16)

OBJECTION # 6: Jesus claimed that God was His father. This makes him the Son and nothing else.

ANSWER: You do not understand what that proclamation meant to the Jewish nation: John 5: 18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. (See also Philippians 2: 5-8. )

OBJECTION # 7: Jesus never came out and proclaimed, “I am God”, or “I am God manifest in flesh”.

ANSWER: He actually did say it - for those who have ears to hear. I offer 7 examples:

Example # 1:
John 14: 7 – 11 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? HE THAT HATH SEEN ME HATH SEEN THE FATHER; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

This sums up what we have been saying all along: The Father (Spirit) was manifest in the flesh (Son), therefore the only way to “see” the Father was to behold the Son. The Spirit dwelled in the body; the Father dwelt in the Son. God was in Christ: His purpose was to reconcile the world to Himself. (2 Corinthians 5: 19)

Example # 2:
Jesus said “I and my Father are one”. Even the Pharisees knew what He meant, for they took up stones and wanted to kill Him - for “making himself God”. (John 10: 30 – 33)

Example # 3:
John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

In John 8, Jesus proclaimed Himself to be the “I AM.” Again, the Pharisees wanted to stone Him for blasphemy, for they knew exactly what He was claiming. Only God could ever be called the “I AM”. (Exodus 3: 14; John 8: 58, 59) You know why the Pharisees could understand His claim to be God? Because they knew the scriptures, and they knew of the prophecies concerning the Messiah – they just refused to believe that this “lowly” servant born in a manger could be their King. (See John 8: 24 – 27)

Example # 4:
John 12: 45 “And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.” – Jesus.

Example # 5:
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob proclaimed Himself to be the “first and the last”. (Isaiah 44: 6). Jesus makes this same claim in Revelation 22: 13.

Example # 6:
Only God can forgive sins (Isaiah 43: 25), yet Jesus forgave sins. (Mark 2: 5 – 7)

Example # 7:
Only God can be worshipped (Luke 4:8 , yet Jesus was worshipped while He was here on earth. (See Matthew 2: 2, 11; Matt. 14: 33; Matthew 28: 9; John 9: 35 – 38; Hebrews 1: 6)

Finally, the ENTIRE BIBLE is the inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3: 16; 2 Peter 1: 21). Therefore, if the bible declares Jesus to be God, then it is equivalent as God Himself saying it. I do not have to only look for “quotes” from Jesus, I just have to see it proclaimed in the scriptures.

Colossians 2: 9 (NASB) "For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form."

For a more complete understanding, and much lengthier explanations, I recommend my PDF eStudies, “If I Had One Hour To Tell You About One God”, “Withstanding The Winds”, and “The Power of God”.

If Jesus is God, what about Him on the right hand of God?

“THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD”

WHY IS THIS OBJECTION RAISED? There are scriptures which state that Jesus is sitting (or standing) on the right hand of God, and therefore many see this as proof of The Trinity. It can be interpreted that way without a clear understanding of what “The Right Hand of God” actually is. Let us look at a couple of scriptures which refer to the right hand of God: Mark 16: 19 - “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.” Acts 7: 55 - But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THIS OBJECTION?

If we are to take this to mean that one person in the Godhead is located right next to the other …

1. Is Jesus sitting or standing? (The two passages above mention both)

2. Isaiah 43: 11 states I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

The phrase “beside me” can only be interpreted two ways: “other than” or “next to”. So it either means that there is no Savior other than God the Father, or that there is no other Savior standing next to God the Father.

3. In order to say that Jesus and God the Father are two different persons standing right next to each other, you would first have to locate God the Father, and then determine where His right side is. However, this would be impossible since God is a Spirit without flesh and bones and His Spirit fills the entire universe. (John 4: 24; Luke 24: 39; Psalm 139: 7 – 10; Jeremiah 23: 23, 24) Isiah 66: 1 tells us that Heaven is His throne, and earth is His footstool. You cannot get on the “right hand side” of a God like that.

4. Keep in mind that the doctrine of The Trinity states that there are THREE persons, not just two: co-equal, co-eternal, and co-existent. Why is it that the Holy Spirit is never mentioned in these passages concerning the right hand of God? Why didn’t Steven see the THIRD person? (Acts 7:55)

5. Is Jesus at the right hand, or literally on the right hand of God, as several of the scriptures declare Him to be? Any Trinitarian believer would tell you that “on the right hand” is not to be taken literally, but figuratively. That simple fact will help us understand the right hand of God.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE ACTUALLY MEAN?
The “Right Hand of God” is not a literal right hand, but simply another way of describing the power of God. This terminology is used throughout the Bible to describe God’s awesome power and majesty. Examples:

Exodus 15: 6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

Psalm 98: 1 …his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

Psalm 138: 7 …thou shalt stretch forth thine hand … and thy right hand shall save me.

Psalm 77: 10 … but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.

Matthew 26: 64 …Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. (See Luke 22: 69)

CONCLUSION
Jesus at the right hand of God does not mean that there are two separate persons standing next to each other, much less three. Remember that God the Father, (who is Spirit) is invisible, and no one has ever seen Him. (1 Timothy 6: 16) The only way that He was made visible was in the body of Jesus Christ, who was “the image of the invisible God”. (Colossians 1: 15; 1 Timothy 3: 16) The Holy Spirit is simply the same Spirit of God, revealed to us as our “comforter” in the New Testament church, and now dwells in us to empower us over sin, lead us to all truth, and resurrect us in the last day.

In Heaven, you will see only one throne, and one sitting on the throne. (Revelation 4: 2)
