Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” Revelation 5:13
All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, Revelation 7:11
When you look at these two verses, it’s easy to miss what they both have in common. God is on the throne. Ain’t that the truth!
But it’s very easy to miss in our day and age when time is marching on faster than we want and we are busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockers. When all the news is telling us the end of the world is rapidly approaching, when our politicians seem to not have our best interests in mind, when our loved ones do things that are clearly not good for them, it’s easy to miss that God is still on the throne. He hasn’t fallen off.
With thanks to my theology teacher, Dr. William Thrasher:
Yesterday He loved me
Today He’ll do the same
How long will it last?
Forever, praise His name
