That of Solomon was of ivory, overlaid with gold; having six broad steps, every one guarded by a golden lion at each end, 1 Kings 10:18-20 . Heaven is called God's throne, and the earth his footstool, Isaiah 66:1 . His throne is also sublimely described as everlasting, and as built upon justice and equity, Psalm 45:6; 97:2 .

Christ is on the throne forever, as the King of heaven, Psalm 110:1; Hebrews 1:8; Revelation 3:21; and his faithful disciples will partake of his kingly glory, Luke 22:30; Revelation 4:4; 5:10 .
