Today’s Reading:

Revelation 4:1-11 (11)

" You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honour and power; For You created all things,

And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Rev. 4:11 NKJV)


This glorious chapter of the Bible describes the heavenly throne, provides a tiny glimpse of God’s glory, and majesty; and also reminds us that life is not all about us. John could not describe the throne of God nor the one sitting on it, he could only bear his vision in terms of precious stones. In the final analysis, it is all about God. Not one name of any righteous human being appears in this chapter nor does the name of any royalty. Every earthly thing fades into the background as we stand with John on the edge of the awesome presence of God.

“… I will show you what must happen after this” (v. 1b) is a clear indication for those who always ignore or do not believe in the end-time events that must take place. Those events will take precedence over everything else, and God will have His way in all of our lives. The things of the world we contemplate as elegant, magnificent, precious, and impressive will all wither into irrelevance when we pause to reflect on the smallest detail of what is ahead that God has planned for us (v. 1).

The twenty-four elders in a white robe around the throne (v. 4) of God may represent redeemed humanity with their purity. The ‘seven Spirits of God’ that are before God’s throne (v. 5; 1:4; 3:1; Ex. 19:16-20a), may symbolise the presence of the Holy Spirit of God, showing that God has several ways of manifesting and expressing Himself among us to bring about His fulness into our lives. Just as the Trinity is one God in three Persons, the Holy Spirit is one Spirit with different operations or models of expression. The four living creatures with several eyes could represent the unceasing watchfulness and their wings their swiftness. The four heads may represent the many aspects of nature – wild beasts, domestic animals, man and flying creatures. Indicates the praise and adoration flowing from all of God’s creation which could also include angels who are agents of God, assisting to oversee the created order (vv. 6-11).

This chapter summarises that God, as the Creator and the Sustainer of all things, all creatures in heaven and earth will worship, adore and honour Him.




  1. The Lord reigns, let the people tremble; he sits between the cherubim, let the earth be moved.

  2. The Lord is great in Zion, and he is high above all the people.

  3. Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

  4. Lord, I declare that You are worthy to receive glory and honour and power, for You created all things, and because they are what pleases You, You created them and brought them to existence.

  5. Holy Spirit fill me to overflow with your power, Your fire, and enablement to serve God, worship and adore Him, in Jesus' name.

  6. Lord satisfy me with a long healthy life and show me Your salvation, in Jesus' name.

  7. Father take control in the lives of our children, youths, young adults, the mature adults, let there be deep, great and mighty deliverance in their lives, in Jesus' name.

  8. O Lord, move Your Church forward, whether the enemy likes it or not, in Jesus' name.

  9. Father, let Your kingdom come, let the rule of Christ begin, and break the tyrannies of sin with Your iron rod, in Jesus' name.

  10. Father visit the hurting families of the world afresh with Your love, Your mercy and Your healing power, in Jesus name.
