"HOLY, HOLY, HOLY IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS, And IS, And IS TO COME"




Revelation 4:1-11 NIV






The Throne in Heaven




1After 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. 


2At once I was In THE SPIRIT, and there before me was a THRONE In Heaven With SOMEONE Sitting On It. 3And The ONE WHO Sat there Had The Appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled The THRONE. 4Surrounding 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. 






5From 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. 6Also in front of The THRONE there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.


In the center, around The THRONE, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. 


7The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. 




8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings.







Day and night they never stop saying:



“ ‘HOLY, HOLY, HOLY
IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY,’
WHO WAS, And IS, And IS TO COME.”


9Whenever the living creatures give Glory, Honor and Thanks to HIM WHO Sits On The THRONE and WHO Lives for ever and ever, 10the twenty-four elders fall down Before HIM WHO Sits On The THRONE and worship HIM WHO Lives for ever and ever. 






They lay their crowns Before The THRONE and say:



11“YOU Are Worthy, our LORD and GOD,

To Receive Glory and Honor and Power,

For YOU Created all things,

And By YOUR Will they were created

And have their being.”



13Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth 

and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in 


them, saying:




“To HIM WHO Sits On The THRONE 

and To The LAMB Be Praise and Honor 


and Glory and Power, for ever and 


ever!”


14 The four living creatures said, 


“Amen,” 


and the elders fell down and worshiped.
