where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

There is only ONE Holy Father

In fact, there is only one name that is called Reverend:
Psalm 111:9  He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.

Jesus Christ - The Right Hand of God

At His Death
Mk:16:19: So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Lk:22:69: Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
Acts:5:31: Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Acts:7:55: But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
Acts:7:56: And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

Gentiles now!
Rom:8:34: Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Eph:1:20: Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
Heb:1:3: Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Heb:8:1: Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
Heb:10:12: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

1Pt:3:22: Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

Psalms for us to hold onto today!
Ps:16:11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Ps:17:7: Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.
Ps:18:35: Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
Ps:20:6: Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
Ps:21:8: Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
Ps:48:10: According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.  Also see Isaiah 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.  Also see Romans 10:2-4 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
Ps:60:5: That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
Ps:63:8: My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
Ps:73:23: Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
Ps:89:13: Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
Ps:98:1: O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
Ps:108:6: That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.  (remember 60:5 'hear me'!)
Ps:110:1: The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Ps:118:16: The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
Ps:138:1-7: ...Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
Ps:139:1-10: ...Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Jesus Christ then sent us the Comforter (John 14) - who speaks His words (John 16) - preserved it in writing to today  and beyond (Psalm 12:6,7).  It is the King James Bible that is our Right Hand Man to guide us on this earth - while we have Jesus Christ Himself as our Right Hand 'man' in heaven being our intercessor!

The Word!
John 1:1,14  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Revelation 19:11-13  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Two-edged sword
Psalm 149:6   Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
Nehemiah 4:13  Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows.
Nehemiah 4:18  For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded.  And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.
Hebrews 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
I Timothy 6:3...  If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ,

We are there with Him spiritually already!
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:4-7

We made nigh by the blood of Christ!
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh,
who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision
in the flesh made by hands;
That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel,
and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope,
and without God in the world:
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off
are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Ephesians 2:18-13

The King James Bible is our 'earthly' Right Hand Man for today!
(all those things (verses above) that God's right man is, those are what our Bible is to be for us today!)

- IF -
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
I Peter 5:6
Then, humble yourselves under the pages of that Book!
Read it!
Carry it!
Learn it!
Study it!
Mark it!
Memorize it!
Live it!
Use it!
Eat it!
Live by it!
Fight with it!
Fight for it!
Rightly Divide it!
Die by it!
Die for it!
Die with it!

And then we will be with Him physically & forever!
...and maybe be one of His right hand men in the Millennium???
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
II Timothy 2:12
