After this, I looked and saw a door that opened into heaven. Then the voice that had spoken to me at first and that sounded like a trumpet said, “Come up here! I will show you what must happen next.” Right then the Spirit took control of me, and there in heaven I saw a throne and someone sitting on it. The one who was sitting there sparkled like precious stones of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow that looked like an emerald surrounded the throne. Twenty-four other thrones were in a circle around that throne. And on each of these thrones there was an elder dressed in white clothes and wearing a gold crown. Flashes of lightning and roars of thunder came out from the throne in the center of the circle. Seven torches, which are the seven spirits of God, were burning in front of the throne. Also in front of the throne was something that looked like a glass sea, clear as crystal. Around the throne in the centre were four living creatures covered front and back with eyes. The first creature was like a lion, the second one was like a bull, the third one had the face of a human, and the fourth was like a flying eagle.
Memory Verse: “I am the way, the truth, and the life!” Jesus answered. “Without me, no one can go to the father. John 14:6.
Today Is Different! I woke up very excited to study the word of God and tell God about everything happening in my life but by the time I finished studying, I couldn’t dare to ask God for anything. I just worshipped my way through my prayer time and continued to dwell on the words I read from Revelation 4..
Every single time I read through revelation chapter 4, I spend the day dwelling on the awesomeness of God but today I spent time thinking of how God is worshipped 24/7 non-stop by those who are positioned in His presence and are the closest to Him. I then thought about where and how I fitted into all that setting of worshippers.
Best believe it, most times I have a list of things I want to talk to God about but how will I reach Him with complains knowing that those who dwell in His presence were those who worshipped Him all day? The circle is so close knitted that sadness, unhappiness and grumbling simply has no place. How could I get access to God if He is surrounded by all the 24 Elders, Four living creatures, His seven spirits and every other unrecorded people.
The Holy Spirit reminded me of the Power in the name of Jesus. I immediately became at ease knowing that despite the continued worship in Heaven, God is still interested in hearing from you and I when we come in the name of Jesus.
The name of Jesus does not only heal, the Name delivers and also capable of delivering all our needs. The Name of Jesus also grants us direct access to the one seated on the throne.
