Applying the Gospel Jesus Taught to Our Life Today

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

Only worshippers are in Heaven.

Worship is what the Father seeks.

Jesus came to seek and to save lost sinners, and make them worshippers of God.

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.

The driving message of salvation is worship. Jesus tells us the only thing God seeks is worship. So, the purpose of salvation is worshiping the God of Heaven. Now, look what Revelation completes for us. The whole Bible can be summed up by the theme of worship. We have come to the final lesson from Revelation 4 & 5.

When God Finally Answers Generations of Prayers for Justice

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

Unanswered prayers: what happens to them? As we open to Rev. 5, we find the answer to one of the great mysteries of God’s Word: Where do all our prayers go? After we prayed them, God heard them, and then what? 

What Happens to
All Our Prayers

Do prayers become like deleted emails? Does God get them, see them on His screen, read them; and then just hits the trash button, and poof, they are gone? 

No, that is never the image God wants in our minds. 

When God Writes the Lyrics: The Songs of Heaven’s Worship Teams in Revelation 4-5

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

As we open to Revelation 5: we have come to the greatest portion, of the greatest book, about the greatest place there could ever be anywhere: the Place of God’s Personal Presence called Heaven.

Today, Heaven’s worship, distilled before us in our Bibles, into words we each can understand: is the most challenging message we could ever hear to prepare us for serving God!

Worship is the offering given to God from my heart, quickened by His Spirit, unto a true awareness of my unworthiness, and His Almighty Immensity. That is how we sync with the constant atmosphere of Heaven. 

Our Redemption Driven Songs in Heaven

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

Someday in the not too distant future, each of us who are born-again by the Spirit, saved from God’s wrath, justified freely by His grace, and forgiven forever: are going to join the ultimate, Heavenly Hallelujah chorus. The words for that chorus have been given to us already, written down in Revelation.

The term in English: Hallelujah Chorus, has become totally associated with an oratorio written 271 years ago in London. 

It was in April, 1741 the German composer Handel was bankrupt, imperiled by paralyzing pain, betrayed by friends, and depressed. It looked like his composing career was over. 

The Context God Gives for the Tribulation

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

For several weeks we have been looking at the elements of worship that are so incredibly displayed in Heaven around the Throne of God. As we have examined each element there has been in the background a scroll. 

As we open to Revelation 5 this morning, we have come to the merging of two themes in Scripture that often do not go together in our minds. I am talking about our worship of our Redeemer being portrayed in the very same verse as the judgments of God’s wrath being poured out upon the Earth.

The Essentials of True Biblical Worship

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

Last time we saw what always makes worship unacceptable to God. This week we are looking at what always makes our worship acceptable and pleasing to God.

As we read these words, think about what you are looking at as we see a picture of the 24 elders; most likely, each of these 24 men seated on the inner circle of the Throne were formerly imperfect sinners, saved by grace, cleansed each day by the sacrifice of Christ, glorified at the moment of their death, and now in Heaven offering perfected worship.

Redeemed – How I Love to Proclaim It

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

As we open to Revelation 5:9, we are analyzing the words of the first song we see ourselves singing in heaven—the song of our redemption. We who were slaves to sin, and lost sinners: were purchased by Christ’s blood. The God who so loved the world that he gave His Son to die on a cross; and shed His blood to pay the price of our sin! The message of this verse could be reduced to the simple phrase:

Redeemed: How I Love to Proclaim It. In Revelation 5:9 we see ourselves the way we will be—singing the new song of our worthy Redeemer. Please stand and follow along as we read these words:

The Redemption-Driven Life

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

One of the best-selling books of modern times was called the Purpose-Driven Life. Author Rick Warren hit a collective nerve in society because so many people feel aimless at times, and struggle for a clear purpose to point our lives at.

The amazing truth is that we are bought and owned by God. He tells us that the purpose that should drive us to focus upon how we use our river of time, that rushes past us at 60 minutes-per-hour.

The Redemption-Driven Life – Set Free & Zealous for Good Works

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

God has declared that each of us have been forever set free. Starting in Titus 2:11 we are looking at the third and final word, that God chose to describe the wonders of redemption.

Redemption, as we’ve seen, is what God wants to motivate us to lives that glorify God, because we were bought at a price.

Redemption is also what fills our hearts, and pours forth around the Throne in the songs of our worship in Heaven.

The Father We All Need is the One Seated on the Throne of Heaven

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

As we enter into Revelation 4 & 5 we must always remember that the best explanation of Scripture is Scripture. So to see the Throne of God most clearly we must see it through the lens of all the other times God chooses to show The Throne to us.

In one of the most well known scenes in the Old Testament, The Throne of God surrounds Isaiah’s call.

Please turn with me to the scene of Isaiah 6, and notice it is representative of what we often see about God’s Throne: it is High, it is Holy, and because of the smoke and quaking, it is almost Distant.

God Maps Out the Future in Great Detail for His Servants

THE MAP OF THE FUTURE GOD LEFT IN HIS WORD
Revelation 1-22

God wrote down an inspired record of the history of the world: from the time when John was sitting on Patmos in AD 95, right up to the very end of days. That is what you are holding in your hands this morning.

The online world mourned for a few moments this week, the passing of another icon from the former, pre-cyber world of the past. After 244 years of publication, the Encyclopedia Britannica will no longer be printed on paper. Thus ended the longest published record of civilization’s knowledge.

A Theology of True Worship

Tagged With: / Heaven: The Throne Room of the Universe

Towering over all our daily lives and worship we offer as believers: is the Throne of our God the King.

When we pray it’s to the Throne of our Hallowed Father who is King in Heaven that we are to address our prayers.

When we struggle it is to the Throne of our King of Grace and Mercy that we cry to out for help in time of need.

When we serve it is our King who tests all our good works by His refining fire, and then passes out all rewards, that we prepare to stand before.
