Some of the Qualities Required For Divine Enthronement, by Pastor Victor Olobaniyi
We have studied the life of some characters in the bible that experience the divine enthronement, moved from grass to Grace. And this includes; Joseph Genesis 41 vs 8-17 and 38-44,Daniel in Daniel 1 vs 3-6,17-21, Daniel 2 vs 1-5,10-23,48-49, Daniel 4,5, 6 vs 1-9 vs 13 and vs 28. David 1 Samuel 16 vs 5-13, Modecai Esther 6, Shadrach,Meshach and Abednego in Daniel 3 Also Esther in Esther 2 vs 15 – 18.
Looking critically at those people mentioned above, we will find out that there are some qualities that were being exhibited by these people in the journey of their lives that took them from grass level to the Grace level we have being talking about.
As we know that for a King or Queen to be enthroned there are some qualities that are expected, in the same vein for God to divinely enthrone you there are some criteria that must be met, although He has the final decision and obviously does His things the way He wants it, but also He is God that has principles.
The first quality that cannot be compromised is that ; You must be born again, you must belong to the family of God , an heirs to the throne, before you can be considered as a candidate for divine enthronement. John 3 vs 1-7.
The issue of being born again cannot be over emphasized, if only one wants to have eternal life and reign with Christ forever.
Secondly, you must be Faithful . Faithfulness is required in getting to the throne and remaining there as was seen in the life of Joseph in Genesis 39 vs 7-23, and Daniel in Daniel 6 vs 4-5.
Diligence is another quality that is required for divine enthronement as mentioned in Proverbs 22 vs 29. Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. For you to move from the grass level to the Grace level diligence is required.
Acknowledging God in everything is also of prior importance, if you want a continuous progress in life as the Lord purposed there is need for you to acknowledge God as the promoter and that without Him you cannot be where you are and achieve what you have achieved .Daniel acknowledges God continually and God never stop in promoting him. Daniel 2 vs 19-23, Proverbs 3 vs 5-6.
Actively involving in the ministry of reconciliation is another trait required in the divine enthronement, as the Lord commanded that we should go into the world and preach the gospel. 2 Corithians 5 vs 17-19.
The heartbeat of the father is Salvation, and as His children, he has commissioned us to be His ambassador and continue the work of reconciliation until His second coming. For He said in 2 Peter3 vs9
These points are not exhaustive brethren, I pray that the good God reveal unto us the qualities He wants in us that will always make Him to continually promote us in Jesus mighty name. Amen
May we not miss our time of divine enthronement in Jesus name.
