From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those that will hear His Voice!
. continued from yesterday…
. Revelation 4. Amplified and KJV. I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven!…the first Voice,…addressing me like the calling of a war trumpet said, Come up hither! and I will show you what must take place in the future.
. at once I came under the Holy Spirit’s power, and behold, a throne was set, in heaven, and one sat on the throne. and He Who sat there appeared like the crystalline brightness of Jasper and the fiery sardius, and there was a rainbow around the throne, in sight like unto an emerald….and out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and Voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. the seven-fold Holy Spirit. and in front of the the throne…a sea of glass like unto crystal: in the midst of the throne, round about the throne, in the center at each side of the throne, were four living creatures…full of eyes before and behind. (with intelligence as to what is before and behind them).
. the first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature was like an ox, the third living creature had the face of a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle….each of them having six wings about them …full of eyes all over and within…day and night they never stop saying, Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty who was, and who is, and who is to come…whenever the four living creatures offer glory and honour and thanksgiving to Him Who sits on the throne, Who lives forever and ever through the eternities, the four and twenty elders fall down before Him that sits upon the throne and they worship Him…cast their crowns before Him…saying, Thou art worthy O Lord…go back to Isaiah 6: …I saw the Lord sitting upon the throne, high and lifted up…His train filled the most holy part of the temple. above Him stood the seraphim; each had six wings…one cried to another and said, Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory! and the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
. back to Revelation 5. I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a scroll. (a book). written within and on the back. sealed with seven seals. there between the throne and the four living creatures, and among the elders, I saw a lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God. the seven-fold Holy Spirit…
. He (the lamb) went and took the scroll (the book) from the right hand of Him that sat upon the throne. when He took the scroll (the book), the four living creatures …prostrated themselves before the lamb…
. I have to stop here today. here we have it again. the four living creatures. first in Ezekiel. now they are here in the Revelation.
. Jesus. the all seeing Jesus. full of eyes before and behind. the author and the finisher. the first and the last. the alpha and omega. knowing the end from the beginning. seeing the past and the future.
. Jesus. the first a lion, Matthew. the second an ox, Mark. the third a man, Luke. the fourth a flying eagle, John.
. what is going on here? what does Jesus, the Word know that we need to know? what is Jesus, the Word trying to tell us? what is Jesus, the Word saying about the future?
. beloved Jesus.
. to be continued…
