As I prayed one fearful night, I felt the Lord so close, like He was sitting at the top of the J stairs (of course, right!). I felt Him speak to my heart. "I'll watch over him, you go get some rest." I hesitated. "Don't you trust Me?" I do, but.............oh, Lord, help my unbelief. I am afraid........."Be not afraid, only believe." Jesus said in Mark 5:36
Then I see my Lord holding him. He isn't awake and the Lord carries him to an alter. He lays him there tenderly. I think of Abraham laying his son on an alter. Then I see it.....the ram in the thicket.
With that thought fresh in my mind, I check on them all one last time. Trust Jesus and crawl into bed exhausted.
As I prayed during prayer meeting, the above incident came to my mind, and I wondered if Jesus was in our church in bodily form, where would He sit? The back pew so he could watch everyone? The front pew eager to hear? Next to the lonely or hurting? I think He'd sit right next to our pastor. He'd be Amening and cheering him on as he preached the message the Lord Himself gave him.
What does the Bible say about where Jesus sits?

found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both
hearing them, and asking them questions.

the right hand of the power of God.

cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the
throne of his glory:

sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of

had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the

things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of

with my Father in his throne.
Revelation 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on
the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in
them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto
him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and
Revelation 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God,
and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on
the throne shall dwell among them.
