During the Age of Israel, the worshipers always stood
while being taught by ritual and the spoken Word; today
the congregation is seated. Why? Because Christ is now
seated at the right hand of the Father, and as members of
the Royal Family of God, we are also seated with Him
positionally in the heavenlies. Only the pastor-teacher
stands, since he is issuing orders from our Commander
in Chief through the ministering of the Word.
R. B. Thieme Jr
Book ( Follow The Colors)
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up,
just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV
