A. He did it to fulfill the work the Father had sent Him to complete. In obeying the Father, the Father honored Him and set him at the right hand of the throne of God. Jesus was the sacrifice.
As God provided the lamb for Abraham and his house, God also provided the Lamb for the whole world. The only way the sins of man can be covered is by the shedding of blood, for without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. Satan had taken the dominion away from man in the garden. Satan has power on the earth. Jesus has established His kingdom not made with hands, it is not of this world. It will be one day but for the present Satan still has power to control those that are not of the Kingdom of God.
B. Jesus endured the cross because He loved us. He loved us enough to die for us. John 3:16 says
"God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever beliveth on Him should not perish but have eternal life". Let us not forget what else Jesus said about him giving his life, " no man takes my life I give it willingly".
4. The WHERE of the text is the Right Hand of the throne of God. It is in the presence of God that Jesus dwells. There He makes intercession for us. It is there that He awaits the day that he will come again to take his bride. It is there that He will present his bride to the Father spotless and blameless.
A. The Throne of God in essence has no left hand; the right hand is the place of honor. He has given that to Jesus. God has not been replaced. He has not relinquished the throne. He has just given Jesus controlling authority. We shall worship around the throne but it is fundamental element that the throne has no left hand. Because God has not received honor from anyone greater than Himself. Jesus is in what we would call the physical presence of God.
B. One day we also will stand in the presence of God. Redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb. That is if you have received Jesus as you personal savior, IF you overcome and endure until the end Jesus has promised that we will be with him where He is.
Love, He loved us so ought we to love Him and one another.
Obey, He obeyed the Father to the Cross, we should obey His Word.
Overcome, He overcame the World, Death, Hell and the Grave, we can overcome only through Him.
Kingdom, He is set down in the Kingdom, that we also may enter into the Kingdom.
LOOK to Jesus He is all needed for the Salvation of Your Soul. The Church can't save you it only helps provide instruction. Your Good Works will only deceive you. Remember it was the run-a-way son that was honored, the one that stayed in the fold was jealous of the joy shown, think about it! Jesus and only Jesus can and will save you! When you claimed Jesus as Savior did you make Him Lord also or did you just purchase "fire insurance".
There is no greater than Jesus in heaven or earth. It is not a light thing to shun the Word of God. 2 Tim 2:15 directs us to study the Word that we might know fact from fallacy. But even greater than that it is so we would know Jesus, that we would not be ashamed. Do you know him to day? I mean truly really know him. You can today, just come as you are. There is Mercy with Jesus.
