Scenes from Revelation – A Lamb in the Throne Room

A lamb enters the throne room of God and the multitudes erupt in praise.
Daily Prayer: Lamb of God, reign in my life that I might love like you.  Amen.

Monday, April 4
Read Revelation 4:1-6aThis isn’t a literal picture of God’s throne room, but instead a collection of symbols describing many facets of something beyond words. What might these symbols be telling us?

Tuesday, April 5
Read Revelation 4:6b-11Numbers also hold symbolic meaning.  12 tribes/disciples, 4 directions on a compass, 3 for the Trinity, 7=God (3) on the earth (4).  What is happening around the throne of God?

Wednesday, April 6
Read Isaiah 6:1-8.  Here is another throne room scene.  What similarities or differences do you see from Rev. 4?  For another, see Ezekiel 1.

Thursday, April 7
Read Revelation 5:1-5The scroll represents the last chapter of history.  Why is it such a sad thing that no one can open the seals?  What hope is offered? 

Friday, April 8
Read Revelation 5:6-14Read carefully the description of the lamb.  Who ends up singing praise for the one worthy to open the scroll?

Saturday, April 9
Read 1 Corinthians 15:20-28.  Paul says that “Jesus must reign until he has put all enemies under his feet.”  How does Rev. 5 show the beginning of that reign?
