WHERE LOVE IS TRUE
The Sapphire Blue Cherubim Throne
Ezekiel 1:26,27 describes God’s throne as blue sapphire in appearance, ringed with fire.
Fire is, indeed, a fantastic analogy for the love that God has for us because in many ways, His love is like the blue of the bunsen flame – intense, pure and true.
Interestingly, biblical history describes one such place on earth as well (Exo 25:10-22).
His throne room in the Holy of Holies, above the mercy seat, where grace covers law, between the wings of the cherubim. There He dwells, holds court, meets and talks with man.
The cross of Christ, is another.
Love burned true here. And grace covered law once and for all.
Today, it is through this cross that He invites us to draw near.
Come, let us boldly enter.
Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.James 4:8
Ask the Holy Spirit to bring to mind sin, brokenness and/or names of people He’d like you to release and forgive.Promptly confess and release the sin as well as situations or people who have offended you (if any) to Him. Take your time. Leave these at the cross and walk away.
Listen to the song. Take relaxing deep breaths, slowly breathing in and out, as you listen to the music.Release the people who have offended you to the Lord. Lift your heart before Him and desire to receive a greater infilling of His love for you and the person/s who have offended you.
Where Love is True Paul Khoo
Listen to the song again and this time use your imagination to engage with the song lyrics.
Remember to keep breathing in and out, deeply and slowly.
Open your heart to receive His love poured out for you at the cross.
Let your inner being rest in His love.
Spend some time meditating on the truth that in Christ, you are a child of God.
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.Jn 1:12,13
Remain in this relational posture, close your eyes and see with your imagination the Presence of the Father right beside you. Reach out to hold His Hand.
Listen to the song.
Remember to keeping breathing in and out slowly and deeply, whilst receiving His peace, as you listen.
Journal your impressions.
Meditate on the verses below.
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.1 Jn 4:4
Listen to the song one more time.
Close your eyes and see yourself growing bigger and taller than everything else that is all around.
Journal your thoughts and learning.
Spend some time rejoicing and thanking Him for His peace and rest.
