Before The Throne
“Our Lord and God, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power, because You have created all things, and because of Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:11 HCSB
“When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, We’ll sing and shout the victory.” Eliza E. Hewitt*
According to Revelation, there is a throne in heaven. The One who sits on the throne is surrounded by a rainbow that resembles an emerald. Before the throne is a sea of glass and seven fiery torches. Thunder, rumblings, and flashes of lightning all emanate from the throne. Four creatures around the throne never stop proclaiming the holiness of God. Whenever the creatures give praise to the Lord, 24 elders bow before the throne and worship. In total submission, they remove their crowns and present them to God, the One who sits on the throne.
When we get to heaven, we will celebrate the victory! In total submission and without pretense, we will fall down and worship the One who lives forever and ever.
Lord, You are worthy! I worship You.
*When We All Get To Heaven
