Apostle Sergio Enríquez.
There are people sitting with Christ in the celestial places, those are the resurrected ones. The resurrected ones are those who have accepted that were death in their crimes and sins and have resurrected through Christ and come alive. We can choose life or death depending on the chair we seat. We can choose a kingdom depending on the throne we seat. If we defeat, we will sit in the Lord’s throne.
Amos 6:3 (NASB) says, “Do you put off the day of calamity, and would you bring near the seat of violence?”
There could be people inside the church that are getting close to the throne of iniquity and think the bad day (tribulation) is very distant. These people believe that the bad day is far away and make bad things that will get them to it. However, the bad day is closer than we think, so we should stop doing bad things. We should form our own opinion based on God’s opinion not on the TV news. People who think that the bad day is far away are more vulnerable to get close to the throne of iniquity.
The book of Amos is talking to the people of God, not to other people. Sometimes, our actions reflect that we are putting off the day of calamity. Our beliefs, actions, and words should have coherence. The book of Joel says that we need to blow a trumpet in Zion (the Church) so that people who have diverted canstraighten their ways.
Psalms 1:1 (NASB) states, “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers!”
The seat is equal to the throne, and the iniquity is equal to scoffing. Here we have a kind of regression, anti-atrium, anti-holy place, and anti-most holy place. There are people who are being counseled by a wicked person and soon will be sitting in a seat of scoffers. So who is counseling you? We need to evaluate who can give us counsel. Other people stand on the path of sinners.
Wicked person counsel = anti atrium
Path of sinners = anti holy place
Seat of Scoffers = anti most holy place
The Hebrew word “Luts” (3887) means scoffer, mocker, ridiculousness, and imitation. How blessed ar those who did not sit in a seat of scoffers. Let’s be careful who our friends are, even on social network. We should not get happy with the misfortune of your enemies. Let’s not sit in a seat of scoffers.
2 Chronicles 32:31 (NKJV) shows, “However, regarding the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, whom they sent to him to inquire about the wonder that was done in the land, God withdrew from him, in order to test him, that He might know all that was in his heart.”
Babylon comes from the word “Babel” that means confusion. The Hebrew word used in this verse for ambassadors is “Luts”. This means that the Babylon’s ambassador will bring scoffing.
Job 16:20 (NASB) says, “My friends are my scoffers; my eye weeps to God.”
Job’s friends accused him of sin. They were his scoffers.
Psalms 119:51 (NASB) shows, “The arrogant utterly deride me,yet I do not turn aside from your law.”
Arrogance and pride are intimately linked with scoffing. We shouldn’t practice scoffing because this can take us soon to the seat of iniquity.
Proverbs 1:22 (NASB) states, “How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded? And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing and fools hate knowledge?”
There are people who rejoices in the misfortune of others, and we shouldn’t be like that.
Proverbs 3:34 (NASB)says,“Though He scoffs at the scoffers, yet He gives grace to the afflicted.”
God scoffs at the scoffers. This will be their punishment.
Proverbs 13:1 (NASB) states, “A wise son accepts his father’s discipline, but a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.”
A wise sheep obeys its pastor, but a scoffer does not pay attention to advice.
A throne is the seat of a leader, but Lot was sitting at the doors of Sodom. This means that some righteous can be sitting at the doors of Sodom. In other words, there could be people at Church who are practicing sin, and we need to get out of there.
We preach that Jesus Christ died, was raised, and is at the right hand of God and in our hearts. Our hearts should be the throne of God.
