Around the Throne
Revelation chapter 4 speaks about the greatness, power,
and majesty around the throne of our God. At His feet there is power and glory,
healing and blessings forevermore. Hebrews 4:16 tells us to come with an
attitude of boldness; the throne of God is a place of authority and praise. It
is a place to obtain God’s grace when it is needed. Hebrews 10:19-23 exhorts us
to come boldly and come in faith not wavering, “holy faith”. Hebrews 10:38
states that we must live by faith. Believe that our God can do anything; and I can
do all things through His strength, Philippians 4:13.
The word of God tells us faith can only work when it is
driven by love. Galatians 5:6, love must be our driving force. 1John 4:16-19
tells us that we must know and believe in the love that God has for us. His
perfect love for us will cast out all our fears. Oh, people of God, lets
continue to praise and worship our God with all that is within us no matter the
trial or tribulation. He is worthy of our praise. We have a kingdom that cannot
be moved, for our God is a consuming fire, Hebrews 12:28-29. Blessed people of
God stay around the throne. Stay at His feet and you will run and not faint.
Freedom from Offense
One of the devils most deceptive kinds of bait is something
every Christian has encountered – offense. If we pick it up and consume it and
feed on it in our hearts, then we have become offended. Offended people produce
much fruit, such as hurt, anger, outrage, jealousy, resentment, strife, bitterness
hatred, and envy. Some of the consequences of picking up an offense are insults,
attacks, wounding, division, separation, broken relationships, betrayal, and
backsliding. Often those who are offended do not even realize they are trapped.
They are oblivious to their condition because they are so focused on the wrong
that was done to them, they are in denial. The most effective way for the enemy
to blind us is to cause us to focus on ourselves.
Jesus said it is impossible to live this life and not have opportunity
to be offended. (Luke 17:1) Most of the time that people are not set free from
this trap of offense is because of pride. It holds people back from being
honest with themselves and others. When we allow God to release us from this
trap, we can reach higher levels of anointing and receive answers to prayers.
The release you may have been seeking for years can come in a moment once you
The greatest thing we can use to combat the trap of offense
is genuine love. The love that only comes from God. (1 John 4:7-8)Everyone that loveth is born of God and
knoweth God. In the new birth, old mindsets, ways, and means of operation
should be passed away and behold all things are new in our life.(2 Corinthians
5:17). This is one of the basic keys to our lives as born again believers. Get
“I” out of way and let it (love) manifest itself in our lives.
People of God, we have a lot of work to do in the area of
perfecting love in ourselves according to the will of God, but please
understand this is not hard. We have plenty of help from the Holy Spirit (John
16:13). We are commended by our Lord and Savior, I said our Lord and Savior, to
love one another (John 13:34-35; 14-15) If ye love me, keep my commandments
(John 15:12; 15:17; 2John 4:7; 1John 4:16; 5:3). Galatians 5:14, for all the
law is fulfilled in one word even in this thou shalt love thy neighbor as
