  6. Revelation 4:1

    Slide 6 - Revelation 4:1

    • After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
  7. A Door in heaven is opened

    Slide 7 - A Door in heaven is opened

  8. A Door Opened in Heaven

    Slide 8 - A Door Opened in Heaven

    • A Door was opened in Heaven; this symbolizes the door of this heavenly vision. What He saw in the vision was actually taking place on earth.
    • The door was the entrance to the vision, and the person speaking here with the voice of a trumpet is the same one who was speaking to him in the introduction of revelation of the 1st chapter.
    • This beginning of the vision is about the "hereafter". (the Time frame of moment he was receiving the vision down through the age of the Church) Again he is in the Spirit just like He was in the introduction of the 1st chapter. This is the start of the second vision.
  9. Revelation 4:2

    Slide 9 - Revelation 4:2

    • And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
  10. In the spirit

    Slide 10 - In the spirit

    • John was in the Spirit. High and lofty things of God cannot be viewed in the flesh. John said after this I looked up, and behold. Your mind must be heavenward and not earthward.
  11. How many heavens are there?

    Slide 11 - How many heavens are there?

    • 1st Heaven - Aerial Heavens (Genesis 1:6-8)
    • 2nd Heaven - Ecclesiastical Heavens where the Church sits in heavenly places(Ephesians 2:6)
    • 3rd Heaven - Paradise (2 Corinthians 12:1-4)
    • 4th Heaven - God's Heaven (John 14:1-3)
    • Note: Jesus instructed the women not to touch him because he had not ascended to the Father. (Which is in Heaven) John 20:17
    •   The Apostle John was caught up to the heaven of the vision, not the heaven where God is.
    •   John never left the Island of Patmos when he was having the vision.
  12. Revelation 4:3

    Slide 12 - Revelation 4:3

    • And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
  13. A Throne Set

    Slide 13 - A Throne Set

    • The scenery of God’s Government in the Church
    • You Can See The Sovereign - Of course, the most magnificent feature of the Church, spiritual Israel, the centerpiece of that city, New Jerusalem, is God Himself. The One no man can see and live, Ex. 33:20, is made visible for all the citizens of that place to see through the symbols of this book.
    • A spiritual throne, among men where God dwells, or sits in the heart of the saints. God’s throne is the material of the church. It is his sanctuary Jer. 17:12. The fact that God sat on the throne shows that He is resigning in the hearts and lives of his people.
    • This throne is set in heaven, not the heaven where God lives, but the ecclesiastical heaven where the church live. This is the place where we sit in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6.
    • Return to Menu
  14. God’s Throne

    Slide 14 - God’s Throne

  15. Daniel Saw this Throne

    Slide 17 - Daniel Saw this Throne

    • The fact that it was a throne also tells us that God reigns in the midst of his people. Daniel the Prophet saw this scene also. Daniel saw thrones cast down in the 7th chapter and 9th verse. The throne that were cast down were the previous kingdoms (Babylonian, Medes-Persian, Grecian, and the Roman Empire), that existed before the establishment of the Kingdom of God. Now we get to see the picture of God's Kingdom and Christ sitting in the midst.
  16. The Ancient of Days

    Slide 18 - The Ancient of Days

    • The Ancient of days is none other than Christ himself. His garment being white as snow is talking about Christ in His role as High Priest. Now read Revelation 1:12-15. This is the same description of Jesus Christ which we saw in the first chapter of the book of Revelation. Look at this description of what Daniel saw in his day and the description of Christ at the introduction of the Book Revelation the 1st chapter;
    • clothed with a garment down to his feet
    • His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow.
    • His throne was like the fiery flame.
    • His wheels (feet) as burning fire
    • This is what Daniel the Prophet saw. Also thousands time thousand ministered unto Christ. And in the 7th chapter of Revelation we find thousands ministering unto him
  17. His Stability

    Slide 19 - His Stability

    • A "throne set" this speaks of His Government! Our God rules an everlasting kingdom! His kingdom is established and stable! No one can overthrow God, Psa. 47:8; Psa. 45:6.
    • Hebrews 12:28 says, “Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.
  18. Revelation 4:3

    Slide 20 - Revelation 4:3

    • And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
  19. The Symbolism

    Slide 21 - The Symbolism

    • John describes the impossible:
    • Jasper Stone - Like a diamond! Brilliant and clear, yet hard, inflexible and firm! - This stones can also speak of the holiness of God (Pure white)
    • The Sardine Stone - Blood red, flashing and fiery. This stone speaks of the holiness of God also - His redemption (Red). For while God is a holy God Who hates sin, He is also the same One Who loved us so much that He sent His Son to die for us on the cross!
    • The Sardine and the Jasper stones were also the first and last stones in the breastplate of the Old Testament High Priest, Ex. 28:15-30. The Sardine stone represented the tribe of Reuben. His name means "Behold a son". The Jasper stone represents the tribe of Benjamin who's name means, "Son of the right hand". In these two names we see a portrait of our Savior, the Lord Jesus in His humanity. He is the divine son, Isa. 9:6 and He is seated at the Father's right hand, Heb. 10:12. These stones picture the completed work of the Lord Jesus for sinners. They remind us that even though judgment is sure for those who are in their sins, there is grace and salvation for those who will embrace the Gospel!
  20. Rainbow about the Throne

    Slide 22 - Rainbow about the Throne

    • An emerald rainbow encircles the throne. This speaks of God’s mercy. The color speaks of serenity and calm. The rainbow is a symbol of mercy, and a covenant that God establish with Noah that he would not destroy mankind with a flood again. See Genesis 9th chapter.
    • So we see God’s Covenant of grace unto mankind again through the grace which came by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. He is now “Ark” and along as we abide in him we don’t have to fear God’s judgment upon sin, because through him we have the victory over sin.
  21. The Door in heaven Q&A

    Slide 24 - The Door in heaven Q&A

    • What does it mean to have a door open in heaven?
    • When does the “hereafter” take place?
    • What does it mean to be in the Spirit?
    • Explain your understanding of a Throne set in heaven?
    • How many heavens are there?

  23. Revelation 4:4

    Slide 26 - Revelation 4:4

    • And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
  24. The 24 Elders

    Slide 28 - The 24 Elders

    • These 24 elders are a picture of God’s Leadership of the ages. 12 representing the O.T. saints and 12 representing the church age saints of God.
    • Note: Moses had 70 Elders as Leaders, in The Old Testament Church
    • David appointed 24 Levites to represent the entire priesthood. 1 Chron. 23:28 It would have been impossible to gather every one of the thousands of Levites together: but when the twenty four came together, they represented the whole body.
    • Jesus had 12 Apostles has Leaders in the New Testament Church
    • Paul also describes the Elders place in leadership in the Church. 1 Timothy 5:17-20

  28. . Their Purity

    Slide 32 - . Their Purity

    • These elders are robes in "white raiment". This is always a symbol of holiness and purity Rev. 19:8. Thank God, God’s Ministry or leadership stand in His presence free from the stain and blight of sin! God’s leadership is sinless.
  29. Crowns of Gold

    Slide 33 - Crowns of Gold

    • Each of these elders wears a "crown of gold". This crown in not like the crown that Jesus wears, Rev. 19:12. His crown is a "diadem" which refers to a king's crown. The elders wear the "stephanos" which is the "victor's crown". It was given out to those who had earned it on the field of battle or in the athletic games. It was presented for a job well done, Heb. 12:1-2. There are at least five crowns named in the New Testament that believers can win.
  30. There are 5 types of crowns

    Slide 34 - There are 5 types of crowns

    • 1. The Crown of Life – James 1:12; Rev. 2:10 – This crown is given to those who demonstrate their love for Jesus by successfully enduring trials and temptations.
    • 2. The Crown of Righteousness – 2 Tim. 4:8 – This crown is given to those who live in the light of His coming. The saints, who long for, live for and love the coming of Jesus, can receive this crown.
    • 3. The Crown of Glory – 1 Pet. 5:4 – This crown is the reward of the faithful Pastor.
    • 4. The Crown of Rejoicing – 1 Thes. 2:19 – This crown is a reward for those who faithful share the Gospel message and point others to Jesus.
    • 5. The Imperishable Crown – 1 Cor. 9:25 – Awarded to those who battle the flesh and seek to live holy lives.
  31. Revelation 4:5

    Slide 35 - Revelation 4:5

    • 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.
  32. Lightnings and Thunderings

    Slide 36 - Lightnings and Thunderings

    • The Lightning is the enlightenment of God's Word, the Thundering, is the understanding of God’s word. And the Voices, is the saints praise.
    • These are the judgments of God when he is executing his word among men or his church
  33. Slide 38

    • The Seven Lamps of Fire
    • This represent the sevenfold ministry of the Spirit of God
  34. The Seven Spirits before the Throne

  38. Revelation 4:6

    Slide 43 - Revelation 4:6

    • And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
  39. The Sea of Glass

    Slide 44 - The Sea of Glass

    • If you will remember, there was a “sea of brass” called “the laver” outside the tent of the Tabernacle. Before the priests entered the tent they were required to wash in the laver. It symbolized cleansing and forgiveness of sin. (1 John 1:9) I thank God that there is a place of forgiveness and restoration today.
  40. The Sea of Glass

    Slide 45 - The Sea of Glass

  41. Revelation 4:6

    Slide 46 - Revelation 4:6

  42. What are Seraphim?

    Slide 47 - What are Seraphim?

    • Before we explain the Cherubim's, I would like to explain the Seraphim, so one can get a ideal of who the cherubim are and what purpose they serve Isaiah 6:2, 6?”
    • These creatures are of the same similarity as the Cherubim. Just like Cherubim is the plural form of Cherub, Seraphim is the plural form of Seraph. The English word “seraphim” is a transliteration of the Hebrew term serapim, a plural form of the root, saraph, which signifies “to burn.” This plural form, “seraphim,” is found only in the Isaiah context sited above.
    • Let us read Isaiah the 6th chapter to get an understanding of these spirit being and see what purpose they serve.
    • In Isaiah’s description, the scene is set in the year that king Uzziah died (c. 744 B.C.). The Prophet had a vision of the sanctuary and the Lord sitting upon an exalted throne. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings. With two of the wings the face was covered, with two the feet were covered, and with the remaining two each creature was able to fly.
    • The seraphim praised God saying: “Holy, holy, holy is Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.” Compare these utterances with similar language in the final book of the New Testament (Rev. 4:8).
  43. What are Cherubim?The Four Living Creatures

    Slide 48 - What are Cherubim?The Four Living Creatures

  44. The Four Living Creatures

    Slide 49 - The Four Living Creatures

    • The Four Beast (The Four Living Creatures) represent the redeemed of all ages, Those who have been saved and washed in the blood Jesus Christ. They were living creatures not dead creatures. The bible says that if any man be in Christ he is a new creature. 2 Corinthians 5:17
    • These four beast or four living creatures represent the ones carrying out God's will. They are the Cherubs who stand guard and are the gate keepers of God's Glory. (Genesis 3:24). Just as the Seraphim bear God's holiness in Isaiah 6:2, so these creatures bears God's Holiness and minister in his sanctuary, the Church.
    • And the first being was like a lion, and the second being like a calf, and the third being had the face of a man, and the fourth being was like a flying eagle.  And each of the four living beings had six wings about him, and they were full of eyes within; and they rested not day and night, saying, "Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come!"  And when those living beings give glory and honor and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, who liveth forever and ever,

  46. Revelation 4:7,8

    Slide 52 - Revelation 4:7,8

    • And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
    • 8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
  47. The First beast was like unto a lion

    Slide 53 - The First beast was like unto a lion

  48. The Symbol of Boldness

    Slide 54 - The Symbol of Boldness

    • They have the attribute of t their King. The Lion symbolize Kingship (Revelation 1:5-6) and Righteousness (Jeremiah 23:5). The Lion was also an emblem of the tribe of Judah
  49. The Second beast like unto a calf

    Slide 55 - The Second beast like unto a calf

  50. The Symbol of Sacrifice and Service

    Slide 56 - The Symbol of Sacrifice and Service

    • The Ox is emblem or symbol of ministry and lowly service. (Thou shall muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn). They are also beast of burden. The bible says bear ye one another burden, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
  51. The third beast had a face as a man

    Slide 57 - The third beast had a face as a man

  52. The Symbol of Humanity

    Slide 58 - The Symbol of Humanity

    • The fact that it had the face of man show us the humanity of this emblem. Even in our humanity, we may suffer for the cause of Christ. Christ said if any man would come after me, let him pick up his cross and follow me. His way is also a way of suffering. Even though our souls are redeemed, our humanity is not yet, but God gives us grace.
  53. The fourth beast was like unto a flying eagle

    Slide 59 - The fourth beast was like unto a flying eagle

  54. The Symbol of Power Strength and deliverance

    Slide 60 - The Symbol of Power Strength and deliverance

    • This emblem shows us how the redeem is able to arise in victory in the test and storms of life (Isaiah 40:28-32). The redeem have the keen sense of knowledge that helps us maneuver the rough winds of life.
  55. These four beast represent The Redeemed of all ages

    Slide 61 - These four beast represent The Redeemed of all ages

    • The foundations of the place were shaken by this loud proclamation and the house was filled with smoke (signifying the very presence of God – cf. Psa. 104:32).
    • When the Redeem cry out God's Holiness in the Sanctuary, the sinner is able to see his sinfulness in the presence of God. Because only those who have been redeem and washed in the blood of the lamb can rightly cry out holiness unto the Lord.
    • In the aftermath of such an awesome experience, Isaiah felt a sense of his own sinfulness. He thus cried:
    • “Woe is me! For I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts” (v. 5).
    • The imagery may show:
    • the connection between the purging of blood and forgiveness;
    • The need of holiness before one can worship God.
    • The question then is this: who were these seraphim in Isaiah the sixth chapter? The most obvious answer is that they are spirit beings serving the Godhead. The “burning” aspect of the creatures may be their act of purification by fire from the divine altar. The Scriptures simply mention the seraphim, with no detailed explanation. One may reasonably surmise that they represented an order of created beings facilitating the will of God. These Cherubs stand guard and are the gate keepers of God's Glory. (Gen. 3:24), Just as these Seraphim bear God's holiness in (Isaiah 6:2). So these Cherubim bear God's holiness and minister in his sanctuary.
  56. They are the Ensigns of God

    Slide 62 - They are the Ensigns of God

    • The Creatures are the Ensigns of the Camp of Spiritual Israel. They are round about the Throne, just like the camp of Israel was encamped about the tabernacle where God dwelt with their ensigns as banners displaying the representation of each tribe.
