Around the throne of God

Revelation Bible Background

12.13.2016 – New Testament: Rev 4.4–6

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 4 on December 13, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

A voice invited John into heaven, right to the very throne of God Himself. Wow! After noticing God on the throne, John then observed what surrounded the throne,

Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads. And from the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings, and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back (Revelation 4.4–6). 

Picture that in your mind’s eye the rest of the day and see how it affects you! Then realize that someday, we shall see that magnificent sight ourselves!

  • Do you think about seeing the face of God?
