Revelation 4 starts out by describing the throne room scene in heaven…
John says “After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
Why is it that the angels of heaven, gathered around the throne of God, are completely overcome, so much so that they never stop worshiping the Lord.
Why do they never cease glorifying the One seated?
Why is it the hosts of heaven incessantly cry out, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, the whole earth is full of His glory?”
Why is it in the Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation, that John who witnesses this open heaven, is stunned by what He sees?
Why is it that the 24 elders mentioned in the 4th chapter of Revelation, keep falling down before the glory of the One sitting upon the throne?
Why is it that in chapter five of Revelation, myriads upon myriads, thousands upon thousands, untold millions, keep crying out, over and over,
“Worthy is the Lamb. Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory, forever and ever?”
This is the reason. The host of heaven and all who are there, are beholding in blazing and indescribable majesty, the wonder, and transcendent beauty of the Living God. And what they see utterly and completely fascinates them.
How you view God, how you see God, what you think about God, is the single most important aspect of your life.
May God give each one of us the eyes of angels that we might behold God in all His beauty.
I once heard a preacher describe what we read in Revelation about the glory around the throne of God, with everybody bowing down and worshiping Him unceasingly.
He talked about how we all have seen things in God’s creation that are so beautiful that just to view it literally took our breath away.
He described the throne room of Heaven with God sitting on His throne like viewing the many facets of a diamond.
Where every second you are seeing a new facet of the beauty, majesty and Glory of God that literally takes your breath away and causes you to break out in worship to your Creator.
Selah (let us pause and calmly think about these things)
