The Throne of God

I heard this sermon entitled “You are the temple of the living God” by Pastor Mike Hoggard and I thought it was interesting and wanted to share it. In the sermon, he compares our body to the actual temple of God, showing that God designed us with His temple in mind.

First, he mentioned how the Bible is constructed. The Bible has a total of 66 books, 39 in the old and 27 in the new.  The Bible has a spine and the spine holds everything together. Our backbone has 33 bones, starting from neck to tail. The right side of our body has 33 nerve bundles and the left side of our body has 33 nerve bundles. The whole body has a total of 66 nerve bundles. He also mentioned Jesus was the age of 33 when He died. The number 33 is significant. Numbers represent the order of God Himself.

Revelation 4:2-6 states, “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. {2} And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. {3} And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. {4} And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. {5} And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. {6} And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.”

The throne of God is your heart and the heart has 4 chambers which represent the four beast that holds up the throne and the sea of glass is the pericardium, a fluid-filled sac around the heart. Ribs surround the heart which represents the 24 elders clothed in white, our ribs are white. The heart operates through electricity which represents the lightning and sounds like thunderings. Our voice box is close to the lungs and heart and it represents the voices. Our right lung has 3 sections called lobes, the left lung has 2 sections, and 2 trachea which equals 7, this represents the 7 lamps of fire burning before the throne which are the 7 Spirits of God.
