Summary: in the midst of famine and lack, one man believed God and went into overflow and abundance “you can too if you follow his example ” Learn the secret of the Isaac Harvest”
This morning while I was praying in the spirit and meditating on the sorry situation our country and indeed the whole world is in I just heard the voice very clear in my spirit! IT IS NOT ABOUT WHO IS ON THE THRONE BUT WHO YOU ENTHRONE IN YOUR HEART.
Now the context here is given right away, “In the year that King Uzziah died,” 740 BC. It is an historical moment. Uzziah was the longest-reigning good king of the Jews, also known by his name Azariah. He became king when he was just sixteen years old. And he reigned in Jerusalem for fifty-two years. He was a good king, walking in the ways of his father, David. But Uzziah’s pride led to his downfall. He got arrogant and illegally entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense, something permitted only for the priests. And God struck him that day with leprosy, and he had it to the day he died. He lived a separate existence. And his son, Jotham, reigned in his place even while he still lived. Now, this good but tragic king has died. It is a time of political instability, of great uncertainty about the future. And at this moment, God gives Isaiah the prophet a vision, a vision of the true king of the Jews, a vision of the Lord enthroned, the Lord of hosts who reigns on his heavenly throne.
Christ has ascended to his throne. And as he sits on the throne he is able to listen to the needs of each one of his children.
We therefore must ENTHRONE Him in our hearts because
all throughout the universe, wherever a prayer is shouted in pain, or whispered in honor, spoken with routine faithfulness, or thought as we journey in the car to work—because Christ sits on the throne in heaven and in our hearts, all of these prayers become important. There is an ever listening ear, paying attention to every request that we make. And we know, as well, that the Holy Spirit prompts us inwardly to make the prayers we lay before the Lord.
To Enthrone means “to place on a throne.” The word “en” means “to cause to be in a place.” In heaven, God is sitting on His throne but on earth, we must ENTHRONE HIM or “CAUSE HIM TO BE IN A PLACE OF EXALTATION” on the earth meaning that we can create a place for His rule, dominion, and authority to be displayed in the earth.
It’s through Jesus Christ that we have a true and honest relationship with God. It’s through him that we communicate with the Father himself. The throne in heaven for Christ is for pleading, for relaying our prayer.
Scripture reminds us time and time again that we can’t just pop into the presence of God and be like, “Hey God. I’d kind of like you to take care of some stuff for me that isn’t working out so great.” We can’t do that. Because of sin we need the relay man. We need Jesus Christ who takes our prayers and requests, he hears them and then with all the authority of the perfect human and perfect God who died and rose again from the dead, he speaks to the Father with our prayers.
That’s a great thing to know. Jesus actually takes up our case.
God has two throne rooms: one in the highest heaven and one in the lowliest of hearts. In these lowly, humble hearts God in great mercy has taken out the old, sinful heart and has put within a new heart, a heart that can know God, a heart in which is written the Word of Life and His own laws. In these hearts He is pleased to establish His throne.
When Isaiah saw the Lord high and lifted up, it changed his perspective to a heavenly one. It humbled his personality and gave him a holy purpose. When he wrote the words we find in Isaiah 57:15, he wrote directly from the heart of God, giving a revelation to us of the person who has a new heart: “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” The humble dwell with Him in His throne room.
In Isaiah 66:1-2 we see His other throne room: “Thus saith the Lord, the heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest? [Where is the place that man could ever make for a habitation of God?] For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.” When this man hears the word of God, he’s moved on the inside. He’s walking in the fear of God. He respects the Lord. “This is the person,” God says, “in whom I will establish My throne room.”
In the world system when something is broken, it is set aside. But in the Kingdom of God, He sets aside unbroken things. It is the precious, broken things that He uses to confound the wise and show the world His great glory through vessels of clay.
It is the secret place of your life. You have an outer court (a body); you have a soul that is like a holy place (volition, intellect, and aspects of your soul); but in the inner man is the spirit, the lamp of the Lord. In that secret place of the Most High, He wants to live. The Bible says, “You are not your own you are bought with a price” (1 Cor. 6:19-20). You have the Holy Spirit in you if you’re a Christian and it’s of God’s doing. He’s placed Him in the hidden man of the heart. In your heart He wants to be enthroned in majesty and in power. He wants to establish His Lordship as it says in Romans 14:8-9, that to this end Christ was crucified and buried and revived that He might be the Lord of the dead and the living. He wants to establish “Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven.” “Forever, O Lord, thy word is established in the heavens” (Psalm 119:89), but we have the privilege of giving it a settling place on earth. When He comes we can “reign in life” (Rom. 5:17), not we reign, but He reigns in us. We reign in life by the Lord Jesus. He wants Christ in me to be the hope of glory (Col. 1:27).
