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 ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. (Rev. 4:1-6)
What I love about the Book of Revelation is the constant return to the throne of God and worship. John will be shown chaos in his visions. He is living in a time of chaos himself. And in all the chaos and possible confusion… the Lord continually brings him back to the throne and the worship around the throne.
No matter the chaos in our lives, we are always called to be reminded of the One who sits on the throne. We are called to worship. We are called to remember the One who knows where we are and what we are going through and he is worthy.
