Spiritual Encounter with the Throne Room of God

“In His presence there was an awareness that the most important thing about visitations of God is the timing. It is not just in preparations alone, which is important for we need to have a right heart before God. It is not how holy you are, or spiritual or how much good works you have done for God but it is the fullness of the timing of God that determines the visitation of God upon your life. God has a place and time for it.”

“The next awareness I had was God was the source of all light in the whole heavens. The Bible says there are no suns in heaven for the glory of God lights up all of heaven. We read in the Word that angels radiate light and their presence have a shininess about them. In heaven, angels have different degrees of brightness of the glory of God, but the awareness was that all those brightness and shininess of all the creations of God in the heavens – angels, saints and others was only a reflection. The awareness of this fact was very strong.”

“There was an acute awareness as I looked into the glory of God that who I am, what I am, what I wear, whatever saints are wearing in heaven and all the brightness of the mansions surrounding the Throne were only a reflection. Literally you could say His life is in us. It is because of the constant pulsating river of life that keeps flowing out from the throne of God that lights up every life in heaven. Glory and life are one in heaven. To have life is to have glory. To have glory is to have life.”

“After weeping before the Throne Room for sometime, Jesus stepped out from His Throne and invited me to sit on it. I replied, “Lord, I…” A sense of awe filled me not of an unwillingness to disobey Him but it was like saying this is more than I could take. I knew that Word of God says in Ephesians 2: 4-7, ‘we are seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus’ but this is heaven and you do not simply sit on God’s Throne. But He held my hand and placed me on His Throne.

This was what it was like to sit on the Throne of God. The past, present and the future disappear. It was like a position you entered into where everything in the past and everything in the future is just like the present. There is no time. You do not feel it. And everything that God has spoken from the Throne through the prophets that spoke and what Jesus said while He was on the earth will come to pass. There was an awareness that Jesus and the Father need not to lift one finger to make the word of God come to pass. The power and impact of the spoken Word of God even if it was spoken ages ago was so powerful.

You could feel the awesome power of it in heaven and on the Throne seat of Jesus. You know the spoken Word of God has come to pass or would come to pass. There was an awareness that it was done, completed and finished. The consciousness of that power that emanated on the Throne of Jesus that could cause the fulfillment of the spoken Word of God was acute.

The power of the Word that was issued forth like a royal command was such that all Jesus had to do was to sit on the Throne and reign and it would come to pass. Hebrews 1:5-8. There is an authority that flows out from the Throne, a power that seems to compel everything, to conform to its reign.”

“The only reason God uses angels and the saints is not because He does not have enough power in Himself to do it but to give us an opportunity to experience what it is like from His point of view to do His things. Before there were any angels, God had an ability to call into being anything. This same ability is still there. There was such an intense power issuing out from the Throne of Jesus to put pressure upon every man, woman and child and everything on earth to conform to the will of God.

God has His angels to do His job. But God’s power was such that He could do it without His angels. It was like a person with such power that all he needs is to say it and it is done. We know that took place in Genesis 1, where God said it and it was.

In 1 Corinthians 15: 25-27, ‘For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet and the last enemy that will be destroyed is death.’ For ‘He has put all things under His feet.’ But when He says ‘all things are put under Him,’ it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. His being on the Throne puts an intense pressure on all things to come under His feet.

Jesus said in Mark 11: 23-24, that if you have faith in your words and do not doubt in your heart, the mountain will be removed when you speak to it. This verse is talking about believing in what you say and when you speak to the mountain and believe it, it will put pressure upon the mountain to be removed. That is what it was like in the Throne Room. The intense and awesome power of Jesus reigning upon the God made me unable to stand it for long.”

“We can then never escape from the gravitational pull of the law of sin and death. However, our spirits can ascend high above it. The reason why God wants us to ascend high up is that when our spirits are up there, our spirits can wrestle with principalities, powers and wicked spirits. Then we can begin to affect the throne of satan. A lot of Christians are fighting the lower ranks. They are just having skirmishes with the enemy. But, God wants us to enter the war of victory to overcome him. Unless the strongman is bound, we cannot spoil the goods. For example, when Jesus cast out the man with the legions, He only spoke to the main one. He did not speak to the other smaller demons.

A lot of Christians are wrestling with the smaller demons of the lower kind, and yet they are not having victory in their lives because they are not ascending to the Throne. The higher we go, the greater the authority (Ephesians 6: 12-14). The only way we can overcome these powerful demons is to be in the heavenly places (Eph 3: 9-10). The only way we can shake the nations of the world is to shake the demon forces governing these nations. When we begin to ascend up, the demon powers begin to recognize our authority in God because we now come from the Throne Room of God. That is why the demons knew Paul well enough to scream his name out (Acts 19: 15).

Elijah had such an authority over the natural earth because he always said, “I stand in the presence of God.” That is why he had such power over the weather and the natural elements because his spirit was not down on earth. His spirit had somehow ascended high up. The reason was he walked so close with God. Today, God does not want one Elijah. He wants many Elijahs. He wants His church to be in the heavenly places. We only receive the heavenly blessings when we are in the heavenly places. Then from the heavenly places, our spirit descends with the heavenly blessings and these blessings work out on this earth in our physical body.”

“There is another aspect of the Throne. We tend to think that all the things surround the Throne of God. And there is a glassy sea like crystal before the Throne. It is not quite like that. You could not see what was behind the Throne of God. If I take a chair and sit on it, you could see what is behind the chair and around it. It was like some sort of glory or life flowing out from it. It was like the Throne was connected in infinity. Behind the Throne is infinity. You could see as far as you wanted to see, further than the natural. Yet there was no limit to the life that issued forth from the Throne.

It was like looking into infinity. You cannot see the end. I believe there is possibly some other universe that Almighty God has created in His greatness and we are only one small tiny part of the universe.

It is like infinity times infinity of the worlds God has created. It was awesome to know how powerful and great our Almighty God is like I was aware that the manifestation of the Throne Room is to different degrees. I could hardly comprehend it. It was like if there was another universe somewhere with a different world, then the Throne Room of God which is linked up to infinity would also be linked to this universe and to many, many other universes. And God is conscious of what is here and what is further out there even to the furthest reaches of the entire universe.

Seeing infinity is like putting two mirrors opposite each other and you can see as far as you want to see and there is no end to it. And there are many manifestations of the Throne of God to every universe connected to it in infinity.”

“Then within heaven itself, it was like there were different planes in heaven. Within each place was a manifestation of God. It is not like having different planes or degrees of glory and there is a throne of God for each plane.

There is only one plane where the throne of God is but if you were on the lower plane and you approached God from that lower plane, you would still see God’s Throne but the Throne of God you would see and experience would be from that lower plane. It is the same Throne but reflected through, for example, seven degrees of glory and you see the Throne of God differently from the way I see it. I was intensely aware that believers could reach to the Throne of God and see different parts of the Throne from what I saw.

That was what really astonished me. It is like if we have many layers of glass in different degrees of transparency. Suppose I put a light bulb in front of the different glasses. You could see the light bulb in different degrees according to the different degree of transparency of the glasses. If you were on the lower plane you could still see the light bulb but it is not just a reflection but it is like seeing it in a hologram. In the earth you would see it like a reflection. But in heaven if you approached the Throne on the lower plane, it is like seeing the light is there but you know it is not but from a different plane.

Because it has passed the different degrees of glory and you are seeing it from the lowest plane you will see the Throne of God differently. People could approach the Throne at these different levels or planes. When you are at the highest plane, you can begin to understand seeing the Throne from other different planes.”

“The Throne Room of God is not static. It does not stay the same where you imagine you see only the glory of God and the shininess of it all the time. Different things take place at the Throne at different times. After the experience of sitting with Jesus, I was allowed to stand and watch all those things.

When Elijah said, “I stand in the presence of God” I began to understand what he meant. It meant standing in the presence of God and being able just to watch all the activities taking place in heaven. Heaven is a bee-hive of activities. Different things were coming to the Throne of God and things were also being issued forth. Whenever people on earth worshipped God and sing how great is our God and Jesus our King and Commander in Chief, there is a type of glory that reflects His kingship, His authority and power in the kingly sense, and each with its different shades. And if people are singing about the God of love, the Fatherhood of God, then the Throne Room would have a different light that shines out and you could see the soft warm love flowing out from the Throne. God is who we say He is. And what God manifest to us at the Throne is what we see and say of Him on earth.

When you know Him as Jehovah Jireh and call Him Jehovah Jireh, He becomes Jehovah Jireh to you. When you call Him Jehovah Shammah, He becomes Jehovah Shammah to you, and you will have the nearness of His gentleness. When you call Him Jehovah Tsidkenu, the Righteousness of God begins to come forth. Whichever attribute you call God by, His manifestation changes accordingly. I was astounded by how much the Throne of God was going into the many different manifestations of glory according to the worship of His people. That is why He revealed His Name as I AM that I AM. When you begin to add whatever you perceive to the I AM, He begins to manifest accordingly because He is the Alpha and the Omega.

Whichever name you use to say and speak about God according to your revelation, that is what He is, because it contains all of the Alpha and the Omega you could understand of, even beyond what you can see and think. Revelation 4: 11, “You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power; for You have created all things, and for Your pleasure they are and were created.”

“One of the most beautiful things that God shared with me on the Throne was He gave me a glimpse of what my work would be in heaven. It is already so wonderful if you discover what God’s will for you on this earth. It was so glorious God doesn’t just want us to visit His Throne. He wants the Throne Room to be our home. And I began to realize what He was saying – that we do not go to visit God in heaven once in a while and then we come back to earth to do our earthly duties and responsibilities. But Ephesians 2: 6 says the opposite, “we have been raised up and seated with Christ in the heavenly places.”

The most wonderful message that God gave was that heaven is our home now. Ephesians 2 is in the past perfect tense. It is not, “we shall be”, though our physical bodies are on this earth. Our spirits can actually remain there. God gave me the understanding that my spirit can remain there, while my body can be down here on earth. From time to time our spirits have to descend to this earth to fulfill our earthly responsibilities but we need to go back there.

We should not visit God in heaven once in a while. Instead, it should be the opposite. What God meant is that our spirits can be there. The authority that we have on this earth is proportional to our spirits in the heavenly places (Ephesians 1: 20-23). The higher we go, the greater the authority (Ephesians 6: 12-14).”

“The Hebrew word for God’s presence is panim which literally means face or countenance. It means seeing face to face. Not just a token or reminder of the person’s existence. Presence and glory are two different words in Hebrew. The Hebrew word for glory is kabod. Presence is countenance or face. It is not just degrees of the glory of God. Glory is the resultant light from the presence of God. The presence is the face to face encounter with God.”

- Peter Tan (Keys to the Throne Room)

“You know it in your spirit where the position of your spirit is. There is no distance with God in the spirit realm. We keep thinking the things of the spirit in geographical terms, here, there, yonder, beyond, etc. for we are too earthly bound. Remember our spirit can be here and yet there. In the spirit realm it is more in the experiential realm.”

- Peter Tan (The Books of God)

“We don’t have to spend that much time when your prayer request enters the throne room. He doesn’t make you to kneel down for 4 hours until He is satisfied. The moment you gain entrance to His throne room it is done. Because all those who doesn’t pass the test has never entered His throne room. The moment you contact the throne room in your spirit something happens. You enter into the past tense. Not because you are exercising a principle of faith. Now there is a realm of principle of faith where you exercise your confession, believing and you are visualizing. But when you enter the throne room its more than that. In your spirit you experience the knowledge, the knowing that it is done.”

- Peter Tan (The Books of God)

“From the time the world was founded God has already seen everything. At the throne room of God every thing is past tense. Your future is in the past tense in God’s book. In the throne room everything is a past tense. Therefore when you are praying over different things and in our heart and in your mind and in your emotion you feel as if they have not come to pass yet, you are not in the throne room as far as the request is concerned. It’s not possible to enter the throne with it still remaining in the future. So know where you are when you pray. Remember real true prayer that is effective in God must reach the throne.”

- Peter Tan (The Books of God)

“Whenever you have a prayer request in God some requests need to take time. But I want to assure you the moment you contact into the throne room time ceases. In the place where God rules and reigns time is like the spokes of a bicycle wheel. God is in the center of the spokes and time is only on the circumference of the wheel. When you draw near to God time ceases. Do you know that when the wheel turns the center of the wheel doesn’t turn? Time exists only outside of God’s throne room. But in God’s throne room time doesn’t exist. All events are past tense with God. Your future is in the past tense. All those things that you are supposed to do in your life are past tense in God. We need to learn the secret of how to bring every request of ours to reach the throne room. When it is inside and you pray through it is done.”

- Peter Tan (The Books of God)

“It was also in 1994 during one of the Conventions that was organised in Sabah that I had a visitation to the Throne Room of God. I was actually praying for the Convention meeting that night and was spending time worshiping and getting deeper into God. Going to the Throne room or any other visitation was the least of my expectations. As I was deep in worship, suddenly my spirit was caught up into the Throne room. I saw the glory of God upon His throne brighter than a million suns, yet it did not hurt my eyes. It seemed like the Throne was only a manifestation of infinity because I could not see what was behind the Throne of God. It was like clouds of highest glory shielding the mysteries and secrets of eternity behind the Throne. I was expecting that one day God would allow me a glimpse of heaven but it was most unexpected to be brought straight to the Throne room. Somehow, my attention was taken to Jesus who was standing next to a seat to the right of the Throne. My spirit was drawn to Him and instantly I knew that He wanted me to experience what it was like to sit there. The moment I sat on it, a mighty blaze of glory filled me both inside and outside. Suddenly, it seemed as if knowledge and wisdom about everything in the Universe was available to me. It seemed as if time stood still or did not exist at all. All of the past, all of the present and all of the future were just parts of a small reality under the creative power of the Almighty God. It seemed as if all one had to do was to think it and something would come to pass. When I came out of that experience, the Scriptures that we are seated with Christ in the heavenly places came into my mind (Ephesians 2:6). I was given to understand that one day the perfect church, the bride of Christ, would walk in the fullness of this authority and glory (Ephesians 2:7; 3:9, 10).”

“One of the strangest visions that I had was in early 1995. In deep prayer at home, I suddenly found myself at the Throne room. I was standing in one section and looking towards the Throne. There at the Throne was another image of me kneeling at the Throne in worship. I immediately knew that that it was me from another future time period. The future me turned around and look at me and smiled. It seemed that there were some things that he knew that I, the present me in 1995, did not. It was not until 2005, when I had gone through what I experienced in the decade of pruning, that in prayer I again suddenly found myself at the Throne room. But this time in 2005, I was the person kneeling at the Throne and looking back at the other me from 1995. So much had changed, within and without. As I look back from 2007 with the insight of the Spiritual World given to me, I knew that God was teaching me His omnipotence through time and space. No matter what wrong choices we make, no matter how many mistakes we make, no matter how much we think He is not in control, He knew us before the foundation of the world and knows how to bring us back to Him as long as our heart continues to choose to love Him. For God works out all things for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). When I was going through the most difficult times in my life over the decade of 1996 to 2006, this vision kept coming back to me from time to time like a constant reminder that I would be back worshiping before His Throne.”
