Johns Vision of Heaven Beautiful :)

Friday revelation 4 11

 

Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! Johns Vision On Heaven!!!

Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
Revelation 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
Revelation 4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
Revelation 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Revelation 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
Revelation 4:7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
Revelation 4:9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
Revelation 4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

 

God had John write Revelation to show us some things we would see in Heaven.
Revelation 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
John heard the following invitation:
Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

The following is a picture of the rapture, and what a beautiful picture:
1Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1Thessalonians 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

WHAT SHALL WE SEE IN HEAVEN?
We will see a glorious God/Father/Savior sitting on His throne.
Revelation 4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
Shinning and glistening like jewels in the sun.
Beautiful clouds like a rainbow.
Revelation 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
A perfectly calm sea in front of the throne that was crystal clear
Four angels constantly praising God, “Holy, holy, holy, day and night”
We will be able to see our Lord, look upon his face WHY? Now in Heaven we will not have our sinful flesh, we will have our new bodies, no sin. AMEN
We will Be praising Him day and Night!!!
No Sin, No Tears, No More Death…AMEN
The one thing God doesn’t do, worship Himself. People worship themselves but not God.
The one thing we are created to do, worship God.
Our Father In Heaven, Our Precious Lord does everything for a reason He created us to Praise him to honour him.
The Precious Stones He picks to surrond him and for other things, he picks for a reason that being;
These were highly valued stones
Chosen for their
*Beauty
*Clarity
*Brilliance

Would it be appropriate to represent to finite man’s mind, God’s infinite beauty and worth in this manner? – there seems to be no other way
Another Beautiful Symbol he used was the Rainbow for his promise to Noah.
The very first mention of the rainbow is found in Genesis 9:13 as a symbol of God’s covenant with Noah never to destroy the world by flood again
Genesis 9:13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
Genesis 9:14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
Genesis 9:15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
Genesis 9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
Genesis 9:17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

The emerald rainbow would be a sign to remind God of His covenant with David, the emerald, that God has established his throne forever
And that promise is kept in Jesus Christ
God, the sovereign Lord of creation sitting upon the throne, the symbol of His authority to rule and to reign.
The precious stones representing Israel and the royal line of the Messiah and God’s infinite beauty and worth
And, the rainbow, the reminder to the covenant maker to keep those covenants
This reminds us of God the father and:
*His sovereignty
*His Lord ship
*His faithfulness

.We are privileged to participate in John’s vision of God, seated upon His throne
1. Above all other thrones.
2. The supreme seat of honor and majesty.
3. Of sovereignty and power.
4. God, the creator, the absolute Lord of the universe.
a. The One who controls and Holds all the events of history in His hands.
b. He is the supreme authority over all the world.
(1) All that has happened.
(2) All that is happening.
(3) And all that will, of necessity, happen; because it is divinely decreed.
*God rules, His throne set in heaven.
*God reigns, forever.

HOW GREAT THOU ART
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the *worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars, I hear the *rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed:
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze:
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Sent him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee:
How great thou art! How great thou art!
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then *I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, My God, how great thou art!

 

Love and Prayers
