The Heavenly Worship
1#Rev 1:19; 1:10; 11:12After this I looked. And there was an open door in heaven. The first voice 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.” 2#Isa 6:1; Rev 1:10; Eze 1:26Immediately I was in the Spirit. And there was a throne set in heaven with One sitting on the throne! 3#Eze 1:28; Rev 10:1; Eze 28:13And He who sat there appeared like a jasper and a sardius stone. There was a rainbow around the throne, appearing like an emerald. 4#Rev 4:10; 11:16Twenty-four thrones were around the throne. And I saw twenty-four elders sitting on the thrones, clothed in white garments. They had crowns of gold on their heads. 5#Rev 1:4; Zec 4:2; Rev 8:5Lightnings and thunderings and voices proceeded from the throne. Seven lamps of fire were burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 6#Rev 5:6; 15:2Before the throne was a sea of glass like crystal.
In the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures covered with eyes in front and in back. 7#Eze 1:10; 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 creature was like a flying eagle. 8#Rev 1:8; 4:6The four living creatures had six wings each, and they were covered with eyes all around. All day and night, without ceasing, they were saying:
“ ‘Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,’#Isa 21:9.
who was, and is, and is to come.”
9#Rev 15:7; 1:18When the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10#Rev 4:4; 5:8; 5:14the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and worship Him, who lives forever and ever. Then they cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11#Rev 5:12; 10:6“You are worthy, O Lord,
to receive glory and honor and power;
for You have created all things,
and by Your will they exist
and were created.”
