“After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne. And he who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clothed in white garments, with golden crowns on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and before the throne were burning seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God, and before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass, like crystal…” Revelation 4:1-6 (ESV)
This image remind us of His glory, majesty, and power. He is so much greater than we know and He has beckoned us to Himself. There is so much more He wants to show and tell us if we will but abide with Him. “Come up higher,” He calls to us. The question is will we respond.
The silk in this image is called Revelation from the Throne. The colors in it are emerald representing double portion, cobalt blue representing revelation knowledge, and fire representing flaming throne of God.
Father may we not be overwhelmed or afraid, but like children may we run to You as You invite us higher – into the mysterious and unknown things of the supernatural. Give us eyes to see and ears to hear. Reveal Yourself to us in ways that enlarge our understanding of Your majesty and power. You reign El Shaddai (God Almighty)!
