The Throne Room of Heaven
1After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing #Ezek. 1:1Rev. 19:11open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a #Rev. 1:10trumpet speaking with me, saying, “Come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
2Immediately #Rev. 1:10I was in the Spirit; and behold, #1 Kin. 22:19Is. 6:1Ezek. 1:26Dan. 7:9Rev. 3:21Rev 4:9a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. 3And He who sat there was #Matt. 5:8Rev. 21:11like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; #Gen. 9:13–17Ezek. 1:28Rev. 10:1and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. 4#Rev. 11:16Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, #Rev. 3:45clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads. 5And from the throne proceeded #Gen. 49:910Ex. 19:16Rev. 8:5Rev 11:19Rev 16:18lightnings, thunderings, and voices. #Ex. 37:23Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are #2 Sam. 7:12(Rev. 1:4)the seven Spirits of God.
6Before the throne there was #Ex. 38:8Ezek. 1:22Rev. 15:2a sea of glass, like crystal. #Ezek. 1:5Rev. 4:8Rev 5:6Rev 6:16Rev 7:11Rev 14:3Rev 15:7Rev 19:4And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. 7#Ezek. 1:10Eze 10:14The 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. 8The four living creatures, each having #Is. 6:2six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying:
#Is. 6:3“Holy, holy, holy,
#Rev. 1:8Lord God Almighty,
#Rev. 1:4Who was and is and is to come!”
9Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, #Rev. 1:18who lives forever and ever, 10#Rev. 5:814Rev 7:11Rev 11:16Rev 19:4the 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:
11“You#Rev. 1:6Rev 5:12 are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
#Gen. 1:1John 1:3For You created all things,
And by #Col. 1:16Your will they exist and were created.”
