1 Then, in my vision, I saw a door open in heaven and heard the same voice speaking to me, the voice like a trumpet, saying, 'Come up here: I will show you what is to take place in the future.'
Rev 1:10 Rev 1:19 Rev 11:12 Rev 22:6 John 16:13 Rev 16:17 Acts 7:56
2 With that, I fell into ecstasy and I saw a throne standing in heaven, and the One who was sitting on the throne,
1Kgs 22:19 Rev 1:10 Dan 7:9 Isa 6:1 Ezek 1:26 Ezek 3:12-14 Rev 4:9
3 and the One sitting there looked like a diamond and a ruby. There was a rainbow encircling the throne, and this looked like an emerald.
Ezek 1:28 Rev 21:11 Ezek 28:13 Rev 10:1 Gen 9:13-16 Rev 21:19-20 Exod 24:10
4 Round the throne in a circle were twenty-four thrones, and on them twenty-four elders sitting, dressed in white robes with golden crowns on their heads.
Rev 11:16 Matt 19:28 Rev 4:10 2Tim 4:8 Luke 22:30 Rev 3:4-5 Rev 5:8
5 Flashes of lightning were coming from the throne, and the sound of peals of thunder, and in front of the throne there were seven flaming lamps burning, the seven Spirits of God.
Rev 1:4 Rev 8:5 Exod 19:16 Rev 11:19 Zech 4:2 Exod 20:18 Joel 3:16
6 In front of the throne was a sea as transparent as crystal. In the middle of the throne and around it, were four living creatures all studded with eyes, in front and behind.
Rev 15:2 Rev 5:6 Ezek 10:12 Rev 19:4 Ezek 10:14 Rev 4:8-9 Rev 5:14-1
7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second like a bull, the third living creature had a human face, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.
Ezek 1:10 Ezek 10:14 Ezek 1:8 Dan 7:4 Ezek 10:21 Rev 4:6 Deut 28:49
8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was studded with eyes all the way round as well as inside; and day and night they never stopped singing: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty; who was, and is and is to come.'
Isa 6:2-13 Rev 1:8 Rev 4:6 Ezek 10:21-22 Heb 13:8 2Cor 6:18 Exod 15:11
9 Every time the living creatures glorified and honoured and gave thanks to the One sitting on the throne, who lives for ever and ever,
Rev 15:7 Rev 5:13-14 Rev 10:6 Dan 4:34 Rev 7:11-12 Dan 12:7 Exod 15:18
10 the twenty-four elders prostrated themselves before him to worship the One who lives for ever and ever, and threw down their crowns in front of the throne, saying:
Rev 4:4 Rev 5:14 Rev 5:8 Rev 19:4 Ps 95:6 Rev 7:11 1Chr 29:11-16
11 You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you made the whole universe; by your will, when it did not exist, it was created.
