” . . . I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of His robe filled the temple.” (Isaiah 6:)
” It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.” (1 Peter 1:12)
God’s throne room may start in heaven but I feel like its’ outskirts are here on earth in the many places where people gather to worship Him and praise His name, because the train of His robe extends to earth and fills His temples, anyplace where His name is being lifted up; lifting Him up in song is part of heaven here on earth. We enter into His throne room and into His courts with praise.
I went to the throne room today, how I wished that I might stay; it was the music drew me there, songs of God’s praise filled the air.
but the voices were not of angels’ ringing, these were earthly voices singing; their words my tongue had never known, still I knew that I was home;
my heart knew every note and song, as I joined in with this earthly throng, their perfect harmonies rose in praise, offered up to the Ancient of Days.
of such things the angels cannot sing, this chorus belongs to the Lamb’s redeemed-
ours are the souls once lost, now found; ours are the bodies still earthly bound.
ours, the blind eyes now with sight, brought from darkness into light.
we, the purchased with Jesus blood; we, the delivered from Noah’s flood.
we, with broken hearts now healed, sing our praise, our spirits yield,
yes, I went to God’s throne room today, was their singing showed me the way; I joined the earthly voices worshiping with heavenly sound, surrounded by such harmonies as no where else are found. Zambian drum beats filled the air, their chorus swelled beyond compare, carrying me to His very throne, heaven on earth the music makes known.
“Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.” (Exodus 40:34)
” . . . for the glory of the Lord filled His temple.” (1 Kings 8:11)
sincerely, Grace Day
