What does it mean to be IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom?
IN THE MIDST of God’s Kingdom is a throne, which has a Sea of Glass before it: “And before the Throne there was a Sea of Glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind” (Revelation 4:6 KJV).
This Sea of Glass has many dimensions to it. In one aspect, when we bow down before the One who sits on the Throne with our face against His reflective Sea of Glass, it is a truth teller where we look into the perfect standard of liberty. In this posture of humility, we can see and understand His mercy and truth in any situation. “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your Throne; mercy and truth go before Your face” (Psalms 89:14 NKJV). Eventually, as we mature, we will become what we behold: “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known” (I Corinthians 13:11-12 NKJV).
In another aspect, the Sea of Glass reflects the transparent tranquility of His peace that surpasses all understanding. When the King of Kings rules all of you, you are blessed with a peace beyond comprehension. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV).
The Sea of Glass also speaks of the One to whom we will all give an account, because He sees and knows everything. “ ‘And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.’ Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie” (Revelation 22:12-15 NKJV).
Living and active faith results in the righteous acts of the saints, which is the very fabric of the Bride of Christ’s garment: “And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, ‘Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.’ And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19:6-8 NKJV). Righteous acts are not good deeds we initiate showing God how much we love Him. The Lord initiates them, and they coincide with the spirit of His Word. Let us not forget a basic principle that other people know a person by their actions: “Even a child is known by his deeds, whether what he does is pure and right” (Proverbs 20:11 NKJV).
Scripture tells us “Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does” (James 1:21-25 NKJV).
Always remember that we are His witnesses of the everlasting gospel being preached with and without words. “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” … Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:6-7,12 NKJV).
Give em heaven!!!
