Thronos (Strongs 2362) means seat or throne. From thrao (to sit); a stately seat (“throne”); by implication, power or (concretely) a potentate – seat of power.

There are 63 occurrences of thronos in the New Testament, only the four below uses refer to earthly seats of power ie 6%. Why are Christians so preoccupied with earthly and human seats of power when 96% of the real action is non-earthly thrones? The real action is in the spiritual thrones, those in Heaven and those in the demonic realms.

He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
And exalted the lowly.

Luke 1:52

“Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption.

Acts 2:29-31

For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. 

Col 1:16

Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain.

Rev 16:10
