Check out today’s addition to our “Rejoicing in Revelation” commentary. It is a glimpse behind the curtain into God’s Throne Room in heaven.

Four amazing creatures–identified as cherubim in Ezekiel’s prophecy—support the throne of God and take it wherever He goes in His universe!

We compare the amazing descriptions in Revelation 4 with a similar vision in Ezekiel, and learn many things about God’s divine attributes of omnipresence, omnipotence, omniscience, and eternity.  We see that He is the “pantokrator”—the ruler over all!

We are assured of God’s goodness.  These powerful creatures proclaim,

 “Holy, holy, holy

Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”

God is righteous in all that He does. This is of the greatest importance in this passage, because the scene will soon shift from the peace and beauty of the heavenly throne room to the awful reality of the Tribulation taking place on earth.
