The Throne Room

The lion and the lambToday I read the first seven or so chapters of Revelation as a sort of devotional, and also in an attempt to finish reading through the Bible.  As I read the four or so pages which contain said chapters, I was once again struck by the vivid imagery in chapters four and five.  They are quite easily my favorite chapters in the book (besides chapters twenty-one and twenty-two).  I LOVE the image of God, high and lifted up on His rightful throne, surrounded by the continual praise of the elders and living creatures.  I TREASURE the depth of the imagery of Jesus, the Lamb that was slain, standing in the midst of the heavenly throne room, doing what only he is worthy of doing – taking the scroll from the Father’s hand and opening it.  And I GLORY not only in the content of the “worship bomb” (term courtesy of Prof. Richard Cornell) in chapter five, but in the description of the response of the elders and living creatures and angels and creatures on earth to the Lamb’s actions!!  What more can someone in love with Christ desire than seeing him magnified, glorified, celebrated and worshipped as he rightly should be?!?!  SO GOOD.
