Behold A Door Was Opened
"Behold a door was opened to heaven.... The four and twenty elders...cast their crowns before the throne, saying, thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power ..." Revelation 4:1, 10-11, KJV
Scripture Focus: Revelation 4:1-5:5
Paul writes of his experience of being "caught up into paradise" which he is not permitted to describe. John, however, in our reading is given a vision of heaven which is for sharing with God's people. So, God arrests us with “Behold!” He wants us to take note of the things He really wants us to know about heaven.
What we are first shown about of heaven in verse 2 warrants a further "Behold." "A throne was set in heaven and one sat on the throne." Heaven is the fullness of the kingdom of God and a Human Being who is also God is in the place of power. Everything and everybody there sings wonderful praise to Jesus.
The Lamb who was slain, the Lord Jesus Himself, is counted worthy to open the scroll of history. He is the one in control of all that happens (Rev. 5:9). All heaven is filled with the sounds of praises sung to the Lord.
We may not have the full story now, but we do know that we will be physically and spiritually perfect and in the very presence of Christ. How amazing it will be to behold!
Insight: Imagine the delight of an eternity experiencing more and more of our saviour, enjoying fellowship with his people in the new heaven and earth!
