The Bible is full of wonderful promises. One of those promises has to do with thrones and kingdoms. In Matthew 25:34, the Lord Jesus speaks of those who will hear the King say, “Come you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from before the foundation of the world.” And in 2 Timothy 2:12, the apostle Paul writes that those who persevere will reign with Christ. In Revelation 5, the apostle John hears a song which sings of believers reigning on the earth. God promises a throne to all who believe in Christ.
However, we’re told in Scripture that this throne is a future reality. We share in Christ’s anointing; we have been anointed as kings. But we do not yet reign with Christ. That’s something that is still in the future. We are on a pilgrimage, a journey, a path to the throne. What does that path look like? How do we travel this path?
