Chapter 7

Presenting David’s Throne to the King of Kings

From the book The New Throne of David
By Gerald Flurry

God has revealed exciting new understanding from Zechariah 6. It shows how God is diligently preparing for the events of the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord—and for the majestic presentation of David’s throne that will follow immediately afterward!

The book of Zechariah is about our time today. Zechariah 6 has puzzled me for years. Now God has removed the mystery, and it gives us mind-staggering insight into what is about to come.

The time frame of Zechariah 6 is very sobering. It is about the urgent period of preparation right before the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord!

Despite the alarming message in this chapter, it is still inspiring in many ways because it gives a clear message about what will happen immediately after that prophesied destruction.

God has revealed to His Church that we are in the prophesied “Jeroboam end.” (Please read Great Again for more information.) The events described in Zechariah 6 follow shortly after that time began. This tells us that time is incredibly short! Just look at what has happened in the world since January 16, 2017, when God transferred David’s throne to the Philadelphia Church of God. The Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord are clearly on the horizon. We are on the countdown to that time. The United States, Britain and the Jewish nation in the Middle East are all about to fall together. All around us is evidence that this event is imminent. Sadly, far too many people remain blind to these signs.

God is preparing now for these events! He is taking very definite action—some of which we can already see. He will continue to do a lot of orchestrating to ensure that His plan prevails.

We can understand what God reveals in Zechariah 6. We had better take note. We must get ready for the fantastic prophecies of Zechariah 6 to be fulfilled!

Four Chariots

“And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass” (Zechariah 6:1). The Bible shows us that a mountain is a symbol of government. These two mountains represent the rule of the two present members of the eternal God Family: God the Father and Jesus Christ. Everything begins to unfold from between these two mountains.

The four chariots referred to here come from the very throne of God. Anytime something flows and emanates from the throne room of God, we ought to take note. It is critical that we pay attention to what follows.

What do these chariots represent? Generally in Scripture, chariots signify war (e.g. 1 Samuel 13:5; 2 Kings 6:14-17; Psalm 68:17; Isaiah 66:15; Jeremiah 46:8-10; Daniel 11:40; Revelation 9:9). These verses are alerting us to the fact that in the very near future, this world is about to experience terrible, earth-shattering warfare!

“In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled [speckled] and bay horses” (Zechariah 6:2-3). What could all this mean?

“Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth” (verses 4-5).

It is clear that these four spirits have been standing before God and receiving commands about what they are to do. This is “of the heavens,” so they cannot be Satan and his demons, who are already confined to this Earth. Originating from God’s throne room, these four chariots are instructed to go to the four quarters of the Earth. God is talking about a global effort here during the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord. Angelic beings are being positioned now for these catastrophic events!

The red horses represent a bloody nuclear war, a war of carnage over all the Earth. This devastating war will have God’s approval, as verse 1 indicates. Remember, when God talks about the prophetic “kings of the east,” He calls them His own army (Joel 2:11, 25). A lot of blood will be flowing very soon because God is going to get mankind’s attention!

The black horses are a symbol of violence, famine and pestilence that will soon overtake the Earth. These angelic beings will see to it that this punishment is measured out precisely as God wishes—no more, no less. The speckled horses represent a variety of purposes that God is going to fulfill during the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord.

The white horses, by contrast, represent Jesus Christ and His Work directly. Remember, all these chariots come from God’s throne. They travel around the Earth. During that nightmare of global nuclear war, violence and famine, God will still be orchestrating a lot of details. He will arrange for His people to be looked after in a place of safety. He will be watching over the repentant Laodiceans as they deliver a message to the Gentiles and are martyred. He will bring the repentant great multitude of Revelation 7 out of the conflagration and spare them. This will all require a lot of angelic involvement.

God has already given these angels their instructions. This has been going on for some time. They have learned how to help God orchestrate His plan, which is no small task.

We are in the Jeroboam end. In this time frame, there is unparalleled carnage and destruction on Earth like never in history! The time is extremely urgent. The crisis of crises is at the door.

The North Country

“The black horses which are therein go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the [speckled] go forth toward the south country” (Zechariah 6:6). God is concerned about the “north country.” That is where the prophesied “king of the north” is located: Catholic Europe, led by Germany. (Request our free booklet Germany and the Holy Roman Empire to understand.) God knows there will be awful desolation. You can sense it building in Europe even today. The whole Continent is full of anxiety, especially in Germany.

The International Critical Commentary says this about verse 6: “The Hebrew word for the north indicates that it was conceived as a dark and gloomy region. Hence, it is fitting that the black horses should be assigned to the north country ….”

The speckled horses go toward the south country (verse 6). “And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth” (verse 7).

The violence, pestilence, famine and starvation of the Tribulation are already building! The terrible prophecies we have discussed for years are starting to come to pass! And God is already preparing by stationing these angels in certain locations among the nations. These spirits of God are walking to and fro over the Earth right now! They will have to deal with Satan in all his wrath to make sure God’s plan is carried out, and you can be sure they will succeed. God is active in all this.

If God is getting ready for this even now, then we certainly should be getting ready too! This is not something to take lightly!

“Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country” (verse 8). God has a special concern about the north country because there is a superpower there that worships the devil! God is intensely concerned about that. He has to keep a check on Satan the devil so that no detail of His plan is disrupted.

God is going to end up punishing the wicked Holy Roman Empire and the kings of the east the same way that they have punished others. (Read our free booklet Russia and China in Prophecy.) It will be a time of unparalleled darkness and blackness!

God is ready to go to war in a way this world does not understand. Even today, God is preparing for the crisis of crises!

Yet in the midst of these prophecies of destruction on all four corners of the Earth, God gives an inspiring message. It is a clear message about His throne.

A Double Crown

“Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest; And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord” (Zechariah 6:11-12).

This verse is talking about the glorious rule that is about to be established on Earth! “The BRANCH” is Jesus Christ. He is the focus here.

God has two crowns made—one of silver, one of gold—and placed on the head of Joshua. This fascinating verse is unique in the entire Bible because a man is given a double crown.

We could not have understood this prophecy before we received the new revelation about the throne of David being moved to God’s Church!

I believe God made the crowns gold and silver because of the distinction between the two offices. One of these crowns represents the priestly office, and the other represents kingship. The Anchor Bible notes in reference to verse 11, that “the crowns of both priest and king in Israel were made of gold.” Anciently, the priest had a miter made of gold, and the king’s crown was also gold. Here, however, when discussing this double crown, both gold and silver are mentioned, with silver coming first. I believe the silver here represents the less prestigious office of the priesthood. God revealed this new throne, new stone understanding through the priesthood, so it comes first. But the king is the one who directs everything, so the priest performs a less important role by comparison.

This is about the scepter promise and the law of the priesthood—a king-priest! God is making it abundantly clear that within His Church, the promises of the lawgiver and scepter are now combined—as we have shown was prophesied in Genesis 49:10 to happen in this very end time. The crowns that are set upon Joshua’s head indicate the combining of the scepter and lawgiver promises.

There is actually one other place in the Bible where you see this combination, and that is with Melchizedek. The Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary notes this about Zechariah 6: “The double crown is placed on Joshua’s head, symbolizing that the true priesthood and the kingdom shall be conferred on the one Messiah.” It then refers to Melchizedek, “who similarly combined the kingdom and the priesthood ….” Melchizedek was the God of the Old Testament, who became Jesus Christ (Hebrews 6:20; 7:1-3).

So the only two references in the Bible where you find both crowns being combined are with Melchizedek and here in Zechariah 6 with the Joshua type. Think of what this tells you about how God is preparing the throne for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ—and how close we are to the coming of the King of kings!

The throne God has placed in His Church has everything to do with the BRANCH, because Jesus Christ is about to be presented with that throne! The two crowns are all about the honor that is soon to be conferred on Jesus Christ!

God’s people are kings and priests in embryo. That is a fantastic calling. All the firstfruits are also about to be given dual crowns and share Christ’s throne as His Bride. But we cannot forget that Christ is supreme—He is the King of kings and Lord of lords! Kings are listed first (gold), and lords, or priests, are listed second (silver).

A Weighty Responsibility

Zechariah 6 shows a world in transition. It is about to experience the horrific nightmares of the Great Tribulation, but that will quickly be followed by the triumphant presenting of David’s throne to Christ, the King-Priest after the order of Melchizedek! This chapter shows how thoroughly and diligently God is preparing for these earthshaking events right now.

And God is bringing His faithful people right into the middle of it! We are receiving advance, detailed warning from God of what is going to happen all over the globe. He is making these prophecies clear, showing exactly how everything will unfold. He is getting us involved and showing us how He will use us to support His cause. And He has made His king and the other firstfruits the stewards of that double crown today! These are His “sons of Zadok” who hold fast to David’s throne. They remain loyal and faithful because they understand that it is Christ’s throne!

We are talking about a new throne. What is a throne? Oxford Dictionary defines it, “The chair of state of a king, prince, or bishop; royal power and dignity, sovereignty.” The word is also used as a verb, meaning, to invest with or to hold kingly rank or power. A throne is not just a chair. It is a king and, in this case, a stone to go with it. That is what Zechariah 6 is about.

We are the royal family of David’s throne, possessing the throne that Jesus Christ is about to sit on and rule from forever! That is mind-splitting truth!

It says here that a crown was put on Joshua’s head. That is a type of the new stone and the new throne, and it’s all a type of the very rule of Jesus Christ. After all, He is the Head of the Church, typed by that stone. It is His throne, not ours. Our job is to proclaim this to the world.

What a wonderful time to be part of God’s Work!

If we really understand the honor God is giving us with the opportunity to help Him raise the tabernacle of David, we have to ask, Who are we? What a calling God has given His people! The firstfruits will be with Christ when He is presented with the throne. We will probably present the throne to Jesus Christ, and then we will be right there with Him, sitting beside Him on His throne as His Bride!

That is a weighty responsibility! We must be qualified for that position! “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready” (Revelation 19:7). This is our breathtaking calling: to be Christ’s Bride! But we have to make ourselves ready. It takes preparation now to rule on that throne later.

If you are not preparing for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, you had better start now! We must be acting on these earthshaking prophecies! We must bear down to get prepared for this role. We must get ourselves out of the way now and let Christ work through us. God knows we can do this. If we couldn’t, we wouldn’t be here.

Meaning of Names

Notice Zechariah 6:10-11: “Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, which are come from Babylon, and come thou the same day, and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah; Then take silver and gold, and make crowns ….” Who made these crowns? They were not human beings. These names represent angelic beings.

The meaning of each of these names is significant. “It is remarkable that all five names express a relation to God,” Barnes’ Commentary says. Heldai means “the Lord’s world”; Tobiah means “the Lord is my good”; Jedaiah means “God knows, or cares for”; Josiah means “the Lord supports”; Zephaniah means “the Lord hides.”

Each of these names expresses a wonderful quality of God. God is good, unlike any man. He knows what is best in our life and cares deeply for each one of us. God loves us so much that He gave His only begotten Son as a sacrifice to prove that to us! Zephaniah’s book is prophecy about the coming Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord; during that period, God will hide His little remnant.

But there are those who have turned away from God who will have to suffer in the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord (Zephaniah 1:6). God makes a special appeal to them because they are His Family!

Foreshadowing the Messiah

The Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary noted this about Joshua receiving the double crown: “The high priest wore a holy crown … above the miter (Zechariah 3:5; Leviticus 8:9). Messiah shall wear many crowns, one surmounting the other (Revelation 19:12). It was a thing before unknown in the Levitical priesthood that the same person should wear at once the crown of a king and that of a high priest” (emphasis mine throughout). The Levitical priesthood didn’t understand this because that dual crown is only for God—and for His firstfruits who will become God beings! We are kings and priests (Revelation 1:6), and we will be sitting on the throne with the King of kings and Lord of lords!

In Zechariah 6:12, when it introduces Christ, it says, “Behold the man.” jfb connects this with John 19:5, where “Pilate unconsciously spake God’s will concerning” Christ: “Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!” “The sense here is, ‘Behold in Joshua a remarkable shadowing forth of Messiah,’” jfb says. This is all about shadowing forth the Messiah! “It is not for his [Joshua’s] own sake that the crown is placed on him, but as type of Messiah about to be at once King and Priest” (ibid).

The end-time type of Joshua rules on David’s throne today.

Christ was made a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek (Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 5:6, 10). And in John 18:37, Christ told Pilate that He was born to be a king. Christ wasn’t to fulfill that role at His first coming, as they believed at the time. Instead, it is about to happen now! That is what we are preparing for. And no man will stop Him! He will be King of kings and Lord of lords over all the Earth, under God the Father.

“Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both” (Zechariah 6:13). The Joshua-type fulfills this reign in a limited way. God uses this transition to help us better understand Christ’s rule.

“Those who are far away shall also come and work at the rebuilding of the Eternal’s temple (so shall you know the Eternal did send me to you). If you listen carefully to the voice of the Eternal your God …” (verse 15; Moffatt). God reassures us that everything will work out if we carefully listen to Him.

‘Grow Up Out of His Place’

“… Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place …” (Zechariah 6:12). This is Jesus Christ. What does it mean that He will “grow up out of his place”?

The Moffatt version translates the last part of this verse: “He shall flourish where he is rooted ….” That is a better translation. Flourish is a more accurate translation than “grow up.” Flourish means to be at the peak of development.

When we receive Joshua’s dual crown, and the new stone and new throne, we are going to flourish! It is actually Christ ruling on that throne, if we do our job! It’s not about a man sitting on it; he is just a symbol. It’s about Jesus Christ. That means the Work is going to be greater. God will empower this Church to a higher degree!

Another translation reads, “sprout up, shoot up, spring up.” That is what Christ is doing right now in this Church. He is springing up! He is supplying us more power to counter the power that Satan has in his worst wrath. We should expect that Christ is going to “spring up” more and more in this Church the closer we get to actually handing the throne over to Him. After all, we are the forerunner of Christ ruling this Earth! He is getting us ready to rule!

What does “out of his place” mean? “Out of” literally means the lower part, that which is below, beneath or under (Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon). It means that Christ, or His throne, is going to move from a lower place to a higher place—a spiritual place.

“He shall flourish where he is rooted,” Moffatt says. This is quite a dimension we need to understand. Where is Christ rooted? Moffatt translates “The BRANCH” as Scion, which means a descendant of David. Clarke’s Commentary says that “out of his place” in Zechariah 6:12 means “out of David’s root.” This goes back to the root of David, or the throne of David. Luke 1:30-33 reveal that Christ will be given “the throne of his father David.” That throne is from Christ’s own roots. Christ came out of the degeneration of the old throne of David, located in Britain. The throne was moved to His Church, His very elect.

At the end of Zechariah 6:12, the Moffatt translation is better. It says that Christ “shall rebuild the temple of the Eternal.” The word translated “build” in the King James is the same as in Isaiah 44:28, where Cyrus discussed Jerusalem being rebuilt. Those words are interchangeable, and rebuilt is an accurate translation. Zechariah 6:15 also talks about rebuilding. That is what is happening: This Work is one of raising up the ruins, or raising up the tabernacle of David that has fallen.

The prophecy in Amos 9:11 applies in a general way to our Work, but I believe when it says “tabernacle of David,” it is mainly speaking about the new throne of David! That throne has fallen in the United Kingdom. And God says He will raise it up! Then He says He is also going to raise the ruins and build it as in the days of old—as Mr. Armstrong built it, with Mystery of the Ages.

Zechariah 6:13 says Christ shall “sit and rule upon” David’s throne. That throne is in this Church, and He is the Head of the Church. The verse concludes by saying, “the counsel of peace shall be between them both.” This is also referring to the Joshua-type, the man leading the Church. This man is “a priest upon his throne” at Christ’s right hand, and both shall hold counsel in harmony. We can only have Christ’s throne—and Him sitting on this throne, spiritually—if we are in harmony with Him.

Today, God’s very elect follow the physical king sitting on David’s throne as he follows Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1).

‘Diligently Obey’

Zechariah 6:15 says, “And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the Lord, and ye shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you.” You have to know what God is doing and through whom He is working. That is your responsibility.

This verse concludes, “And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God.” This is before the Second Coming. And there is a big condition here!

We have to make sure we remove that “if”! God wants to know that we love His truth, His stone, His throne and His crown. Once He knows that, then He will be well pleased and will give us entrance into His Family.

The word translated “obey” also means to give undivided attention, obedience or listening; it means to understand what one has heard. The main idea of the Hebrew word, shama, is perceiving a message—understanding it. The Moffatt says, “If you listen carefully to the voice of the Eternal your God.” Listen carefully and hear God’s message. You can know and prove it is God’s message. That is what God wants. We must give serious attention to this new revelation! This is not easy to grasp. It requires in-depth Bible study and prayer!

This verse gives us the whole formula we need: “And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God.” All you need to do is follow the formula, and you cannot fail! That is a great promise, but it is also a warning! Ninety-five percent of God’s people are not here! Fifty percent of them will never be here, and the other 50 percent are going into the Great Tribulation to remove the “if”! They are going to have to say, Go ahead, kill me. I’m all in! I’m going to obey God. I don’t care what you do to me!

We are getting very close to the time when many thousands of God’s lukewarm saints will have to take that stand. But take that stand today, and there is no reason why you should go through that! God gives you the formula. He is telling you, This is something you can do! And if you do it, you will be in my Family and rule and share the throne of Jesus Christ at headquarters forever and ever and ever!

Zechariah 6 shows that God has a clear plan of action. We must be preparing, just as God is preparing, to see to it that God’s plan prevails. That means we must listen carefully to what God is telling us. Take note of His message, and act with urgency.

We are going to help raise the ruins of a devastated Earth. We will help Jesus Christ restore paradise to this Earth! We are going to plant the heavens and aid in healing this groaning universe (Isaiah 51:16). That is the awe-inspiring future that God has in store for those who will listen to His voice! Just understanding that should motivate us to prepare in every way we can!

A Temporary Throne

“And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up” (Acts 15:15-16). The context here is the Millennium. Even in the Millennium, the throne of David will be a “tabernacle”—it is still a temporary throne, as it is today. Only after the Millennium is completed, and a new heaven and a new Earth have arrived, and God the Father has brought new Jerusalem to Earth, will that throne be permanent.

What a mighty vision this is! It just keeps unfolding! What God is calling us to be a part of really ought to stir our lives mightily!

The understanding of this throne isn’t about exalting us; it’s about exalting God! But at the same time, if we do our part, God will exalt us in ways that are hard to even describe! This is reality!

When you think about this amazing revelation, you can see why, when the disciple Thomas asked to see the holes in Christ’s hands and side, Christ calmly said, “Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29). We must build faith to really grasp this truth. How often do we not have the faith we ought to have? I certainly have found myself in that position. We can all relate to Thomas, because we have all had our faith failures. But we can change that.

Look at this millennial prophecy: “Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord. Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes” (Isaiah 54:1-2). “Tent” in verse 2 means tabernacle or temporary dwelling. This movable tabernacle will keep getting greater and greater because the Family is not complete until the Father is here! At that point, Earth will not be inhabited by human beings. The vision keeps expanding!

“For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed …” (verses 3-4). We just need to trust God. We don’t have to see the “holes” in Christ’s hands and side. We must have a greater faith than that, and keep building on that faith.

“For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called” (verse 5). We serve the God of the whole Earth! This is an endless vision that just keeps unfolding! What God is doing right now in this Church ushers in the Messiah, and then the Family of God, and then the Father, and then we go out and beautify and build the universe!

Honoring Mr. Armstrong

Malachi 3:1-2 is a marvelous prophecy that Mr. Armstrong would prepare the way for Jesus Christ’s Second Coming. That is amazing! Preparing the way for Jesus Christ is a major endeavor! And look at the honor God is giving him: The rock that he used as a prayer rock ended up becoming a symbol of the throne of David! God was really paying attention when Mr. Armstrong was up there on the hill praying at that stone!

Near the end of his life, Mr. Armstrong said the “restoration of God’s government is the one great purpose uppermost in God’s mind.” The new stone and new throne really fit right into that. God has brought His royal government into His Church. And God has His own government ruling from the throne of David.

“Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David …” (Isaiah 9:7). This is a vision we need to get locked into.

“And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand …” (Isaiah 22:21). The government is in the Church of God. Would God give the throne of David to people who won’t submit to His government? There is no way He would do that! That would defeat God’s own purpose.

“And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open” (verse 22). That key of the house of David comes with a lot of power! Eliakim has the key to the house of David, and nobody can shut that door. Imagine that! We have this open door, and men would love to shut it, but they can’t! Armies would love to shut it, but they can’t! We are oftentimes berated and kicked around, but they can’t shut the door! And it drives them crazy!

“And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house” (verse 23). The father in this verse is Mr. Armstrong. This says that my office is going to be a glorious throne to his house. Mr. Armstrong was like a father to me and many others.

Eliakim is a father of the house of Judah. That throne will be returned to Judah. We are saying, “Behold your God!” to the cities of Judah and telling them the Messiah is coming! (Isaiah 40:9). He is going to come and sit on David’s throne. That throne is here in the Philadelphia Church of God!

“In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the Lord hath spoken it” (Isaiah 22:25). I have always thought this refers to the place of safety, and we have the throne of David when we get there.

Flow Into the World Tomorrow

This new throne is a direct tie to Jesus Christ’s Second Coming. His return is almost here! We are coming close to God’s rule on the throne of David forever!

Perhaps nothing can make the World Tomorrow more meaningful than David’s throne. What could be more helpful to really get a vision of the future?

Having this throne is everything! It is like a bridge right into the World Tomorrow. In a sense, it is already the beginning of the rule in the World Tomorrow. How will we rule when Jesus Christ returns? Well, Christ is going to rule from David’s throne. Today we have David’s throne and must rule from that throne. Christ will also implement the law. We too administer the law with the government of God. The Kingdom of God is going to administer the law of God to the whole world from David’s throne. We have an embryo of that now in this Church!

You might say this will make us leap into the World Tomorrow. But in reality, it won’t make us leap; it will make us flow into the World Tomorrow!

God has established a new throne that possesses a certain purity that will allow us to pass this throne on to the Savior. How special! The more I think about this, the more I realize that God would never allow it to be done any other way. He would not want the royal family of Britain today to pass that throne to Him, as long as they are behaving the way they are.

We are in a transition movement. We have the throne that will transition to God Himself! It looks like we will present the throne of God to Jesus Christ. We are in the transition stage of Christ ascending to that throne to rule the world!

Imagine the great Father giving us the new stone and the new throne! We are God’s royalty! We have David’s throne! How blessed is this Church.

This is mind-staggering revelation. We have been given a great gift and a clear vision of what God wants us to do. It is going to make God’s new civilization come alive for us! This is a preview of the World Tomorrow! Jesus Christ is about to return and marry His Bride. She will sit on David’s throne and assist Christ in ruling this Earth forever and ever. Our rulership will flow out into the universe, and there will be no end to the government and the peace that it will bring to this Earth and the universe.

And right now, God is inviting us—throughout that wonderfully productive eternity—to be right there near Him, where He will be talking to you, and you to Him. That is reality! That is where all this is leading. What could be more wonderful, beautiful and exciting than for God to give us a reward like that?
