Revelation 4:1-11 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up here, and I will show you things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit; and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a carnelian stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in appearance like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty thrones: and upon the thrones I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white clothing; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne proceeded lightning and thundering and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind. And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second living creature like a calf, and the third living creature had a face as a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come. And when those living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him that sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, The four and twenty elders fall down before him that is sitting on the throne, and worship him that lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for your pleasure they are and were created.
In this text we see one of threatening sight.It is a glimpse of heaven.If you wish to see the throne of the King of the Kingdom of God,Jesus Christ,then take a close look at the sight explained by Apostle John in the Island of Patmos.
A door is open in heaven for John to see what is in the Throne room of God.Then he is called upon to go up and enter the throne room.Immediately he is in the Spirit and then he begins to give an account of what he saw;
A throne is set in heaven.
One sits on the throne.
His countenance was as jasper and carnelian stone.
There was rainbow around the Throne.in appearance like emerald.
Around the Throne were twenty four other thrones with twenty four elders clothed in white garments and golden crowns sitting on the thrones.
Out of the Throne proceeded, Lighting,thundering, and voices.
Before the throne where seven lamps burning ,which are the seven Spirits of God.
There was also a sea of glass before the throne.
In the midst of the throne and around the throne where four living creatures full of eyes behind and in front.
The first creature had a face of a lion.The second creature had a face of a calf,the third creature had a face of man and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle.They where full of eyes within and had six wings and never rested day and night saying Holy,Holy,Holy is the Lord God Almighty,who was and is and is to come.
When these creatures gave glory to God the twenty and four elders cast down there crowns and worship the one sited on the throne.Saying,You are worthy to receive glory,praise and honor for you created all things,and for your pleasure they are and where created.
If you wish to see the throne of God,then you must be in the Spirit.You cannot see the throne of God in the flesh.John had to be in the Spirit to see into the supernatural.When you see into the supernatural you will see Jesus as He is and you will worship Him.
Today will you purpose to be in the Spirit?
