The over-comers open door!
Scripture reading for December 5th: Revelation 4
Key Scriptures for over-comers: Revelation 4:1-3, 8 “After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first 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 there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the One who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow, resembling an emerald, encircled the throne. . . . Day and night they never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.””
John received the letters to the seven churches and wrote them down as instructed. Immediately after this, John saw an open door in heaven and Jesus invited him to come up and see what was going to take place on earth in the future. At the word of Jesus, John was immediately transported (caught up) into heaven and saw a glorious throne there with a brilliant person shining like jewels. Around this throne were angelic creatures crying “Holy, Holy, Holy. .”
Observations for over-comers: Our Lord has revealed what will take place at the time of the end. A “trumpet” will sound and we will be caught up to heaven to meet the Lord! “A glorious Throne, exalted from the beginning, is the place of our sanctuary!” (Jeremiah 17:12)
