Encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory. (1 Thess. 2:12 NIV)

Heavenly Worship – Revelation 4:8-11

Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:
“‘Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,’
who was, and is, and is to come.”
Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”

Revelation 4:8-11 NIV

This is one of my favorite scenes from Revelation. God is sitting on his throne, with what appear to be the four cherubim from Ezekiel 1 & 10 surrounding him and engaged in continuous praise and worship. And surrounding them are 24 elders who join in continuous worship with the cherubim. God’s heavenly throne room is a place of continuous praise and worship; and I would guess it is not the sedate and orderly worship that many of us are accustomed to today.

Do you enjoy falling down before the throne of God and engaging in praise? Is so then you will fit right in with the ongoing heavenly worship. If this kind of worship is more challenging for you, then maybe we need to practice more. Picture the cherubim and elders worshipping, and join in with them. Fall on your face before the throne of God and praise your creator and redeemer.
