Exploring Revelation
“Revelation 4: 2,3. - Exploring Revelation”
by Art Sadlier

We read in verse two, "And, behold, a throne was set in Heaven, and one sat on the throne."

My friends, I m here to tell you, God is still on the throne, the Sovereign God is still on His throne in Heaven. In our day, a whole generation has been educated and indoctrinated to believe there is no God. God did not create man or his world, there is no God! A whole generation has bought into Darwins myth.

Dostoyevsky wrote, "Anything is permissable if there is no God." A whole generation has rejected the idea of God and has plunged into unrestrained evil. "Values Clarification," has permeated our educational system. Basically it just tears down God s Law, God s Standards and God s Word.

My friends God is still on the throne. Men can shake their fists in God s face. Men can deny God exists. Men can disobey God s Word and God s Laws. Men can plunge into all kinds of evil, BUT - God is still on the throne in heaven!

We read in Psalm 11:3 "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" David s Kingdom had come apart at the seems. Absalom has won the hearts of the leaders of the nation away from David. Absalom has been placed on the throne. Some are seeking David to kill him, he has to flee for his life.

The very foundations of David s kingdom are destroyed, but even as David hides in the wilderness, the question will not go away. David, what can you do? David your throne is gone, many of your leaders have defected. The foundations of your kingdom are destroyed. David what can you do? We read in verse 3: "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

I suspect as his loyal followers pressed him for an answer, I suspect David said, "I really do not know what I am going to do." But I know this (verse 4), "the Lord is in His Holy Temple, the Lord s throne is in Heaven---"

Today things look dark! All hope seems to be gone! This may be the enemies hour, but, oh! listen! God has not lost control, in fact God is just as much in control now as He has ever been. God is at work today in what to us are very adverse circumstances, (verse 4): "His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men."

The men today who seem to have usurped God s Law, God s Plan, God s Word, God s Earth and God s Kingdom, these men are just being allowed by God to expose themselves as worthy of His Judgement. God is still on the throne. We read in verse 6, "Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup."

As these dark days grow darker, we need to look into the throne room of heaven, and we need to see"God on the throne." Who is on the throne? Rev. 4:8, "(The) Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come."

We come to verse 3 and we read, "And He that sat was, to look upon, like a jasper and a sardine stone: "We learn here that this one who sat upon the throne was a Holy God. The sardine stone was a deep fiery flashing red. It reminds us that our "God" is a "Consuming Fire."

The fire on Israel s altars was a unquenchless fire. Its flames were to never die out. they were to burn on and on, day and night, year in year out, generation to generation. So long as sin exists in the universe, God s attitude toward it is burning holiness.

We need to stand and gaze into the throne room of Heaven and see God in His Holiness. We need to see God s Burning Anger against sin. O that the world might see God in His Holiness! "For the wrath of God is revealed (stored up in) from Heaven against all ungodliness, and the unrighteousness of men,---Rom. 1:18. "For our God is a consuming fire."Heb.12:29.

"and there was a rainbow round about the throne,---vs.3. A rainbow comes when the storm is past. We need to be reminded there is a day coming, when we will be in God s presence and the Storm of Sin will be passed forever. the Day of Evil, the Day of Man s Rebellion against God will come to an end.

When we come away from our gazing into the Throne Room of Heaven, we shout "HALLELUJAH" we are on the winning side! Brothers and sisters relax, God is still on the throne. (Please read Palm 73:)
