GOD'S RIGHT HAND

     Nathan the Prophet began to prophesy to King David: After thy days are fulfilled God will establish an eternal Throne and your seed and your household shall have an established Kingdom with a King and a glorious Throne.(see II Sam.7) This prophecy is wonderful, however, let's focus on the amazing fulfillment!  We find this fulfillment "when the day of Pentecost was fully come". "Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:"(Acts 2:24-25)  "Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;"(Acts 2:30)  "Therefore being exalted by the right hand of God exalted and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand , until I make thy foes thy footstool."(Acts 2: 33-35)

     Three times in a few short verses we see the right hand mentioned and exalted. God is not a man that He should have a right hand, so let's explore the symbolism. The Patriarchs of old used the right hand as the hand with which to give their blessing. It also represented strength and power. "The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. I shall not die,..." (Psms. 118:16-17)  In essence the "right hand" of God points to Jesus, God's Right Hand Man! In paraphrasing we could say the "right hand" of God brought salvation and resurrection life to the people of God. "Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore (Psms.16:11)  I like the way one ole preacher used to say it: A righteous man's heart is on his right side. Selah

     "When the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate the one from another, as a shepherd divideth  his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:" (Matt.25:31-34)  I'm bold in telling you the real outpouring of the Holy Ghost places you on the "right hand" of the Father, on the right hand of Jesus, and on the right hand of the Throne! This verse says come ye blessed of my Father, remember Jesus told the "sons of Zebedee"  that to sit on the "right hand" of the Throne was not His to give but was by invitation only of our Heavenly Father. THANK GOD FOR THE HOLY GHOST !  Many are called but few are CHOSEN. This separation requires we have a working relationship with the "fruit of the spirit", the "gifts of the spirit" and unshakable faith.

     We firmly believe in the "restoration of all things", for this to happen Jesus must be center and sovereign! His word cannot be interpreted any ole way and by those who do not passionately love the Truth!  "...for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name."(Psms. 138:2) God's restoration will include getting rid of "interpretation deception" The Truth is; God is bound by His word, you and I can accept it or reject it, even mishandle it but one thing for sure WE CAN'T CHANGE IT !! Since He is bound by His word, any scripture any man teaches out of context is false doctrine. We must have the "right Spirit"  have our heart on the "right side", be placed on the "right hand" having the right hand of blessing, be in "right standing" with God and man, and most important of all "RIGHTLY DIVIDE THE WORD OF TRUTH !
