At the Throne
Revelation 4:1-8 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this"...
think about it.
What happens to John here (4:1-2)? What do the four living creatures tell us about God (4:8)? What does seeing the throne of God do for your desire to worship?
Today, we undergo a shifting of gears if you will. We're moving into chapter 4 of Revelation and as we do that we are moving from things that took place in the past to things that are to come in the future. Our setting is no longer on the earth but in heaven, and we're moving into the judgment portion of Revelation.
Revelation 4:2 introduces us to God seated on the throne. John provides us with quite a description of God, His throne and all that is around the throne. What he describes is definitely not of this world. It's absolutely majestic and it so highlighted for me God's glory and power and holiness.
So what did this picture of God on the throne convey to you? How can we utilize what we learned about God from this passage in our lives today? Tami W.
