Temple Court Throne
(Revelation 7.15-16)
Page 134

"Therefore, they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. Never again will they hunger, never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat." (Revelation 7.15-16)✞

Every Race

Every Race and PeopleThose who have been faithful and were pure in heart will enter into the very presence of God. Jesus said in Matthew 5.8, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." The task of the Levites and the Priests was to "Serve God day and night" and "to be responsible for the care of the tabernacle of the covenant law” according to Numbers 1.53. Now those drawn from every race, tribe, people and tongue are before the temple court throne in this vision. Here is a revolution. In the earthly temple court in Jerusalem, no Gentile could go beyond the Court of the Gentiles on pain of death. But here every Christian of no matter what race or people stand before God himself. This was something the majority of even devout Jews could ever do.✞

Wide Open to All

Trumpet or ShofarAn Israelite could pass through the Court of the Women and enter into the Court of the Israelites, but no further. Beyond that was the Court of the Priests, which was for priests only and then the Holy of Holies entered by the High Priest alone once in a year. But in the heavenly Temple, the way to the presence of God is open to all people of every race at all times. This is Heaven with the barriers down, an open temple court and the throne of God. Distinctions of race and of status exist no more for every faithful believing and born-again soul can enter into the very presence of Almighty God.
