Stephen, known by the 12 Apostles as one full of faith and the Holy Spirit, speaking the truth of what he knew and saw to the Jewish Leaders and High Priests of his day and Stephen’s end result.  Read the text below in your own Bible too.  Was Jesus standing next to his self?  No.  

Try this exercise.   Place two chairs next to each other.   Sit in the chair on the left.  Now, without moving from that chair, sit next to yourself to your “Right Hand”.  Can you do it?  Does it even make sense for you to try?  No.

Stephen, full of faith and Holy Spirit, like at other places mentioned in the Bible, looked up and saw Jesus standing at God’s Right Hand, in the place of honor.

Acts 7:54-60

54 Well, at hearing these things they felt cut to their hearts and began to gnash their teeth at him. 55 But he, being full of holy spirit, gazed into heaven and caught sight of God’s glory and of Jesus standing at God’s right hand, 56 and he said: “Look! I behold the heavens opened up and the Son of man standing at God’s right hand. 57 At this they cried out at the top of the voice and put their hands over their ears and rushed upon him with one accord. 58 And after throwing him outside the city, they began casting stones at him. And the witnesses laid down their outer garments at the feet of a young man called Saul. 59 And they went on casting stones at Stephen as he made appeal and said: “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60 Then, bending his knees, he cried out with a strong voice: “Jehovah, do not charge this sin against them.” And after saying this he fell asleep [in death].

The truth is, Jesus is sitting in that chair/throne to the right hand of Jehovah God and His Almighty Throne.  He is not sitting in the same chair/throne as Jehovah God Almighty.

Will You die for the truth?   I will, and i am ready.
