What Do They See?

Our woman's group at church has been studying the book of Revelations. Wow! Sometimes it's a bit overwhelming to read all of the things prophesied to happen in the future.

But in the midst of all of the seals and judgements, is a very knee bending reality.

God sits on the throne, and those in the throne room see before their eyes, someone who they worship continually.

Day and night the four living creatures never stop saying,
"Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty. Who Was and Is and is to come."

Whenever they say this, the twenty four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him. They lay down their crowns before the throne and then they say,

"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being."

I've really tried to grasp this whole concept of how awesome and mighty He is for them to continually bow before the throne and say those words.

Do I even have a smidgen of the reality of the God of all creation, the Savior of my soul?

This worship isn't just sometimes. It's all the time. Day and night.

It is so fascinating. What are their eyes seeing?

The Bible says while I am here on this earth, I walk by faith and not by sight. But it also says I can see Him through His creation.

I can get a glimpse of how majestic He is, when I drive through the mountain ranges or sit on the beach at the ocean shore or when gazing at all the stars in the night sky.

I can glimpse at how orderly and creative He is when the sun continues to rise every morning and paint a beautiful picture across the horizon. When the moon rises to it's place in the sky and brings light to the dark nights.

I can glimpse at how consistent He is when every year the trees drop their leaves during the fall season, and in spring they bloom once again.

I can glimpse of how He cares for even the birds of the air when they are able to figure out how to crack open a nut, make a nest, pull the worms out of the ground, or catch a bug.

In Alaska, brown bears return yearly, to a certain rocky area of a river, to catch salmon near the end of their run before the salmon spawn. The feast is enough for the bears to gain enough weight to do their yearly hibernation.

I can glimpse as how artistic and detail oriented He is when holding a newborn babe in my arms and then watch in amazement as the baby grows and develops.

I glimpse at how personal He is with His creation when He says, cast your cares upon me, be anxious for nothing.

I get a glimpse of His unending love and mercy whenever I hear or read the story of the gift He gave us through His Son Jesus. Whoever believes in Him will be saved.

Now on this earth, I see through a mirror dimly. If all this is a dim view, I can only begin to imagine the glorious majestic person who sits on the throne in Heaven.

In those glimpses it is easy to see why they worship and say, Holy, Holy, is the Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come.
