THRONE

An established emblem of kingly dignity and power, used by sovereigns on all stale occasions. That of Solomon was of ivory, overlaid with gold; having six broad steps, every one guarded by a golden lion at each end, 1 Kings 10:18-20. Heaven is called God’s throne, and the earth his footstool, Isaiah 66:1. His throne is also sublimely described as everlasting, and as built upon justice and equity, Psalms 45:6; 97:2. See also Isaiah 6:2-4; Ezekiel 1:1- 28. Christ is on the throne forever, as the King of heaven, Psalms 110:1; Hebrews 1:8; Revelation 3:21; and his faithful disciples will partake of his kingly glory, Luke 22:30; Revelation 4:4; 5:10. He forbade men lightly to swear by heaven or its throne, as they were thus irreverent to God, Matthew 5:34; 23:22.
