SUMMARY: There is a literal heaven where God dwells and He sits on a throne.
If it is true that there is no throne in heaven and God cannot sit on a throne, which some false teachers would have us believe, then consider this that Church Leader presents before you:
The prophet Jeremiah would not have written in about 550 BC: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne, and all the hosts of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. In addition, Micaiah the prophet saw this (1 Kings 22:19; 2 Chron 18:18).
David could not have seen the throne of judgement that he says God has prepared (Psalm 9:7; Psalm 103:19). Nor could David have seen that the Lord’s throne is in heaven. (Psalm 11: 4). Additionally, David could not have seen God sitting upon the throne of his holiness. David saw all this around the 10th Century BC.
Around 740 to 680 BC, the prophet Isaiah could not have seen The Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple (Isa 6:1)
Ezekiel the prophet saw a vision of God in heaven (Ezek 1:1) and saw the God of Israel (Ezek 10:20), the likeness of a throne, and God upon it (Ezek 1:26). This prophet wrote these things around 592-570 BC.
Daniel could not have seen God sitting on his throne (Dan 7:9) around 537 BC
Jesus Christ our Lord was not exact when he said in Matthew 23:22 "And he that shall swear by heaven, swears by the throne of God, and by him that sits thereon."
The writer to the Hebrews was wrong about God sitting on a throne, when he stated that Jesus sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty on high in the heavens (Heb 1:4; 8:1). The writer of Hebrews must have also been wrong when he stated in Heb 12:2 that Jesus is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. This was written between 64-68 AD.
John the Apostle was mistaken in recording the revelation which God gave him (Rev 1:1) that the seven spirits are before God’s throne (Rev 1:4). He was wrong when he stated in Rev 4:3-4 that there is a throne in heaven and God sits on the throne. The book of Revelations was written about 90 AD.
Jesus had earlier told his disciples that he would sit on his glorious throne (Matt: 19:28). Later, the mother of James and John asked Jesus to let these two disciples sit on his right and left side (Matt 20:21). Jesus never deceives people and whatever he says is truth and can be depended on. Jesus did not correct her, or set them straight about any wrong notion that they might have had regarding thrones in heaven, or sitting on thrones in heaven. If a thing is not true he would tell or inform us otherwise. (John 14:2).
After his resurrection, Jesus entered the holy place in heaven with his own blood that was shed at Calvary, and which was then sprinkled on the mercy seat, to obtain our eternal redemption. This is what the Apostles Peter and Paul ( 1 Pet 1:18-19; Heb 9:5-12) explain in the scriptures, by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. False teachers who claim that neither God nor Jesus sit on a throne, claim also that there is no blood in heaven, and there is no literal mercy seat on which such blood was sprinkled.
Church Leader Pearls contends that parading as messangers of truth and light, false teachers ply their dark trade of confusion, misleading many and offering another gospel of clever philosophy and emptyness. These are the kinds of challenges and false teachings churches face.
In 2 Tim 3:16, the Apostle Paul teaches us that all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. So for the past some 2473 years, God tells the human race and wants us to believe that:
i. There is a literal heaven
ii. There is a God
iii. God dwells in Heaven
iv. God sits on a throne
