A Glorious Throne–Glorious King!

Scripture reading for December 4th:  Daniel 7-10, Revelation 4

Key Scriptures: Revelation 4:1-3  “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.” 

As John finished the dictation from Jesus Christ, he saw a door open in heaven and an invitation to enter.  Immediately he was transported to the throne room of God Almighty!  He was overcome with the throne and the One seated there.  There was light, beauty, color and preciousness that John described as best he could under the Spirit’s guidance.  John’s experience was similar to Daniel’s vision!

Daniel 7:9-10  “As I looked, thrones were placed and the Ancient of Days took His seat; His clothing was white as snow, and the hair of His head like pure wool; His throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire.  A stream of fire issued and came out from before Him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him; the court sat in judgment, and the books were opened.” 

Prayer: Lord, I long to see You and Your glorious throne and the thousands that attend to You.  Thank You for preparing us with these heavenly visions by Daniel and John the Apostle.  Amen.

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)
