When Jesus Sat Down

Hebrews 12:1-2

1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

(NAS)

Have you ever thought about the fact that Jesus finally sat down at His Father’s side?

Heb 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high;

(NAS)

Heb 10:12 but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God,

(NAS)

Rev 3:21 `He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

(NAS)

When Jesus sat down it was a statement that all that would ever have to be done on behalf of the church, and on behalf of every believer was totally and completely accomplished.

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And He bowed His head, and gave up His spirit.

(NAS)

What was finished?

That is a question we all need to have an answer too.

This is the truth that all creation has been groaning for.

This is the answer to all of our questions.

Will we hear the voice of the Lord as it speaks?

Your salvation is totally complete.

Your healing has forever been purchased.

Your sin debt has been totally paid in full.

When Jesus sat down next to the Father it was a final statement.

Now will we by faith accept his answer?

How many of us live a completed and full life?

If we don’t it’s because of our choices --- not His promises.

Romans 10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart"-- that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, 9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus {as} Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; 10 for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

(NAS)

We choose to accept and receive.

We choose to make the faith statements of God’s Word a part of our daily lives.

God’s promises will never fail.

We are the ones who fail to appropriate them into our lives.

Where is God’s promise?

It’s in the Word of God.

Where is the Word of God supposed to be?

In --- your --- mouth.

It’s your responsibility not God’s to bring them into your life.

God furnishes and also backs up and supplies his promises.

We have to then --- take them --- by faith.

We must speak forth the promise, --- the miracle, --- the healing, --- the salvation, --- whatever it is that we need from God.

The speaking forth in faith --- is our part of the formula.

This speaking forth comes about even in our day to day conversation.
