Worship in Heaven

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:1 - Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:2 - And instantly I was in the Spirit,[fn] and I saw a throne in heaven and someone sitting on it.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:3 - The one sitting on the throne was as brilliant as gemstones—like jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled his throne like a rainbow.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:4 - Twenty-four thrones surrounded him, and twenty-four elders sat on them. They were all clothed in white and had gold crowns on their heads.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:5 - From the throne came flashes of lightning and the rumble of thunder. And in front of the throne were seven torches with burning flames. This is the sevenfold Spirit[fn] of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:6 - In front of the throne was a shiny sea of glass, sparkling like crystal. In the center and around the throne were four living beings, each covered with eyes, front and back.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:7 - The first of these living beings was like a lion; the second was like an ox; the third had a human face; and the fourth was like an eagle in flight.

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:8 - Each of these living beings had six wings, and their wings were covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day after day and night after night they keep on saying,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—
the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:9 - Whenever the living beings give glory and honor and thanks to the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever),

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:10 - the twenty-four elders fall down and worship the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever). And they lay their crowns before the throne and say,

Unchecked Copy BoxRev 4:11 - “You are worthy, O Lord our God,
to receive glory and honor and power.
For you created all things,
and they exist because you created what you pleased.”
