Revelation 4

Verses 1-11

The Vision of Those Who Worship at the Throne of God In Revelation 4:1 to Revelation 5:14 John the apostle finds himself in the midst of a praise service. No one nor nothing, none of God’s creation, glories in God’s presence here. To know God in proper perspective is to praise Him, which is simply a commitment to, a confession of, the sovereign power and providence of God. Lack of praise is our failure to know and understand God’s sovereignty in our personal lives.

When we praise, we envelope ourselves in God’s throne room, and step out of bounds from the destruction of the devil, who is in this world running to and fro. Praise delivers us from the carnal-mind of doom and bondage to sin. We will note that all through the book of Revelations, the saints are not fighting the battles. God is fighting these battles as the church is praising the Lord and serving Him.
