“The Throne of God”
Revelation 4
• (1:1) “What must soon take place”
- First vision: Christ caring for his church
- Second vision: God on his throne
• God … the center of authority
- The essential value of worship
- The offer of complete fulfillment
How does this vision impact us?
• The door of revelation (vs. 1)
- Choose to walk through it
- Draw near (Ephesians 2:6-7)
• The intensity of the vision (vs. 2-3)
- God’s holiness is beyond description
- Glory
• We are compelled to worship with all of heaven (vs. 7-8)
- The aspects of the nature of Christ
- The nature of praise
- Worship is our central purpose
• The song changes when we join in (vs. 9-11)
- Praise for the works of creation
