Pray that we will see a spiritual vision of the throne of God as the center of God’s administration throughout the universe and see the ruling of the heavens by the God of the heavens over all human government on earth to match the eternal economy of God for Christ to do two great things: (1) to terminate the old creation for the germination of the new creation through His first coming, and (2) to smash and crush the aggregate of human government and establish the eternal kingdom of God in His second coming (Rev. 4:2; Ezek. 1:26; Dan. 4:25b, 26b; Acts 17:26; Dan. 9:26a and footnote 261; 2:34-35; Rev. 11:15).
Rev. 4:2—Immediately I was in spirit; and behold, there was a throne set in heaven, and upon the throne there was One sitting.
Ezek. 1:26—And above the expanse that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, like the appearance of a sapphire stone; and upon the likeness of the throne was One in appearance like a man, above it.
Dan. 4:25b, 26b—Seven periods of time will pass over you, until you come to know that the Most High is the Ruler over the kingdom of men and gives it to whomever He wills…your kingdom will be assured to you after you have come to know that the heavens do rule.
Acts 17:26—And He made from one every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, determining beforehand their appointed seasons and the boundaries of their dwelling.
Dan. 9:26a—And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah will be cut off and will have nothing. [see footnote 261]
Dan. 2:34-35—You were watching until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the image at its feet of iron and clay and crushed them. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed all at once, and they became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
Rev. 11:15—And the seventh angel trumpeted; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever.
