Revelation Chapter 4

Rev 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in the heavens; and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, come up here, and I will show you things which must be afterwards.

Rev 4:2 Immediately I was in spirit; and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.

Rev 4:3 He that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a carnelian stone; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.

Rev 4:4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones; and on the thrones I saw twenty- four elders sitting, clothed in white garments; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

Rev 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and the noise of thunders; and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

Rev 4:6 Before the throne there was a sea of glass like crystal; and in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes before and behind.

Rev 4:7 The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a bull, and the third creature had a face as a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle.

Rev 4:8 And the four living creatures each had six wings about him; and they were full of eyes around and within; and they do not rest day and night, saying, holy, holy, holy Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.

Rev 4:9 And when those living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who is living into the New Covenant Age from the Old Covenant Age.

Rev 4:10 The twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and worship Him who is living into the New Covenant Age from the Old Covenant Age, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

Rev 4:11 You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You have created all things and for Your will they exist and were created.
