    Re: Are the following three statements the same?

    They do not mean the same.

    1. Your throne, God, is forever. (Here, you are talking to God. Another sentence example is: My car, James, is not for your use.)


    2. Your throne is God forever. (Not a good sentence; does not make sense)

    3. God is your throne forever. (Simple sentence saying that God is someone's throne. But it does not make much sense, since people don't have thrones.)
