Who currently sits at the left-hand side of God?

Let us begin by looking at what we mean by the “right hand of God.” The Baltimore Catechism (1941) explains:

What do we mean when we say that Christ sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty?

When we say that Christ sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, we mean that Our Lord as God is equal to the Father, and that as man He shares above all the saints in the glory of His Father and exercises for all eternity the supreme authority of a king over all creatures.

The “right hand of God” is therefore not a literal place, it is metaphorical. God the Father is pure spirit, He has no right hand or left hand at which someone can be physically seated.
