Bible: Rev 4:1-6

The Amazing Scene in Heaven

4:1 After these things I looked, and there was 1  a door standing open in heaven! 2  And the first voice I had heard speaking to me 3  like a trumpet 4  said: “Come up here so that 5  I can show you what must happen after these things.” 4:2 Immediately I was in the Spirit, 6  and 7  a throne was standing 8  in heaven with someone seated on it! 4:3 And the one seated on it was like jasper 9  and carnelian 10  in appearance, and a rainbow looking like it was made of emerald 11  encircled the throne. 4:4 In 12  a circle around the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on those thrones were twenty-four elders. They were 13  dressed in white clothing and had golden crowns 14  on their heads. 4:5 From 15  the throne came out flashes of lightning and roaring 16  and crashes of thunder. Seven flaming torches, which are the seven spirits of God, 17  were burning in front of the throne 4:6 and in front of the throne was something like a sea of glass, like crystal. 18 

In 19  the middle of the throne 20  and around the throne were four living creatures 21  full of eyes in front and in back.
