While beholding the Throne of God, in Rev. Chapter five, John the Revelator  unveils the two-fold Nature associated with the "one seated upon the Throne". We can see the "Lion of the tribe of Judah" and also a "Lamb as if it had been slain". Two natures of Jesus, both of which are crucial to those who would reign with Jesus, demonstrating the Power of the Throne of God. "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne". (Rev.3:21)  Here we are introduced to a brand new term, "in my throne". In the throne, is more than a location, it reveals the position of power and authority by those who would follow on to know the Lord, and who long for and desire what happens when the throne of God and Believers in Jesus connect in righteousness! "In my throne" is an elevated place in the Spirit for those who know the true meaning of being "caught up" and in this "high place"it's not a government of democracy, but we're totally surrounded by the government of God!

     To get here is to see the face of the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Now listen to Father Jacob's blessing on Judah as he was dying in Genesis 49 ; "Judah your brothers will praise you (Judah's name means praise); your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father's sons will bow down to you. You are a lion's cub, O Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness who dares to rouse him? (Gen.49:8-9) NIV  This is the nature of Judah, King David, King Jesus and the overcoming Remnant who would see and experience the Throne of God.This nature comes with a cost, and must be in-worked by the Lion of Judah.

     The throne of God of which I am referring, is not way up there somewhere. It is located in the Kingdom of God, and that Kingdom is within !  The true location of "in my throne" is in your heart and mine which is God's true Holy of Hollies.  Effective results come only if and when God issues a decree from the Throne, this is the true meaning of

Kingdom Authority! Thy will be done in earth as it is already being done in heaven. We are in a crucial time in which God's Elect are determined to crucify our flesh with it's carnal thinking. This is exactly where the nature of the Lion becomes very relevant. "When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Mortify (crucify) therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleaness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:"(Col.3:4-5) 

     Needless to say, we need the anointing of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah to kill the flesh and all its idolatry. 

"For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda;..." (Heb.7:14) Like a crouching Lion the ears of Jesus listen for true praise, and this rouses the Lion to seek his prey. You are His prey, and straight for the neck the Lion springs to destroy his enemies (all the works of the flesh). At the name of Jesus every knee will bow and declare He is King of Kings. Victory of His Throne awaits all those who will see the face of the Lion!

     The word Lion means the same thing in most languages: "He that rends or tears asunder". The Lion is noble, majestic and referred to by most as "king of the jungle". Pound for pound it has no equal in strength, combined with its lightening speed the Lion is created and ordained to kill and eat flesh. Its claws penetrate 4 inches deep and the swing of its front paw has been compared to the same force as a 25 pound weight. What's going on in the Kingdom of God you ask?    


In- Christ Always
