Bible Text: Revelation 4:1-11Series: Revelation |
[Rev 4:1 NKJV]
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."
[Rev 4:2 NKJV]
Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and [One] sat on the throne.
[Rev 4:3 NKJV]
And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and [there was] a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.
[Rev 4:4 NKJV]
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.
[Rev 4:5 NKJV]
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.
[Rev 4:6 NKJV]
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.
[Rev 4:7 NKJV]
The first living creature [was] like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature [was] like a flying eagle.
[Rev 4:8 NKJV]
[The] four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!"
[Rev 4:9 NKJV]
Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever,
[Rev 4:10 NKJV]
the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
[Rev 4:11 NKJV]
"You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created."
