Out from the throne come flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God; and before the throne there was something like a sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind. The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.”
And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders will fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and will worship Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”
When we are with the Lord in Heaven, worship will be the order of the day. We will join the living creatures and the elders in casting our crowns before the throne and worshipping the One who sits on the throne and the Lamb of God. Our praise and worship here on earth pales beside what is to come, what is greater than we can comprehend.
Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things and because of Your will they existed and were created. Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come! Amen.
