Which throne are your eyes on? Men are being kicked off their thrones, seemingly daily, for immoral acts they have done, improper financial dealings they have committed, or even just because they are past the age of ruling in their sphere of influence. The thrones of men are temporary, they are corrupt and they are plentiful. We are going to be seeing more and more men dethroned and people are going to be devastated or delighted, but they are just the thrones of men. I hear the Lord saying, “Which throne are your eyes on?”
Thrones of men can be admired and desired by men, people think being famous, rich, powerful are the marks of “making it”, success or even control, but the thrones of men are an illusion, they are not reality. If you knew what it took to get on that throne, you would be astonished. The enemy always causes thrones to dazzle and sparkle in order to get us to focus on the thrones of men. Solomon said it this way in Proverbs 23:31-32 “Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it goes down smoothly; At the last it bites like a serpent And stings like a viper.”
Which throne are your eyes on? The church building has built thrones called pulpits, people love the pulpit, they want to stand behind the pulpit, they want to hold the microphone, thinking it is the pinnacle location in the building. People leave church and come to church based on the person behind the pulpit, which throne are your eyes on? There is another throne, were we are to fix our eyes On. Hebrews 8:1-2 says, “Now the main point in what has been said is this: we have such a high priest, who has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a minister in the sanctuary and in the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, not man.” Join all the others who have eyes on His throne!
