Short Clip
God wants us to orient every day of our lives to the truth that He is seated above each moment of our lives. Opening to Revelation 4 & 5 is much like remembering that the blazing stars of a cloudless night are always there, we just rarely see them. So, we must not let the rest of life distract us from the foundational truths that we must always remember as we open our hearts and minds to God’s Word. Every moment of every day:
Heaven is Real. God is on THE Throne; and, we are His servants.
As we open to Revelation 4:2-3, we see not only The Throne central to Heaven, we also see: The One Seated on The Throne.
The One Seated On The Throne
Every moment of life is lived before the eyes of God, Seated on His Throne.
No event of our life is missed by the One Seated there.
That is the message of the next sentence in this letter.
Please stand with me, and listen with me to the voice of God from His Word, speaking through John, as we together read together from the slide:
Revelation 4:2-3 (NKJV) Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. 3 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.
The Throne is central to Heaven; but even more, The One Seated on the Throne, is central to everything.
Every event in the world, every birth, death, disaster, war, social event, or secret meeting: unfolds before the eyes of That One Seated on The Throne.
Nothing is ever missed by the One Seated there.
