God’s Throne in Heaven
Revelation 4 is about God’s throne in heaven. In verse 1, Jesus calls John’s spirit up to heaven to show him what heaven looks like and what will happen, in heaven and on earth, in the future. John describes and records seeing the Father sitting on His throne and a rainbow encircled the throne. Twenty-four elders were seated around the throne. Lightning, thunder and voices came from the throne. Seven lamps of fire blazed before the throne. A sea of crystal glass was before the throne. Four beasts of worship and praise were. around the throne. They praise God endlessly, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” When those beasts praise and thank the eternal Father sitting on His throne, the twenty-four elders fall on their faces and worship the eternal Father who sits on the throne.
In Revelation Chapter 4, the Apostle John spiritually went to heaven, came back and lived to tell the story. What awesome insight into the throne room of God is this chapter? John’s testimony of what he saw gives us a greater understanding of the Father, and it inspires us to be more faithful.
The Book of Revelation was written to seasoned Christians, who have an intimate relationship with King Jesus and who know His Word. The Revelation of King Jesus is the ultimate Bible book that completes everything we need to know about Christ so that our relationship can grow to the highest heights. This is why we study the fundamental books of the Bible, so that we can understand the revealed prophecies of King Jesus.
