And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,who was and is and is to come!” Revelation 4:8


Revelation 4 speaks towards the Magnitude of God and majesty of worshipping Him. The imagery of jewels, thunderous sounds, lightning flashes, 4 living creatures and 24 elders point to the priority of ascribing worship, declaring the holiness of the Lord God Almighty. He is, He created and He is God Almighty. The imagery speaks to a Majestic, All Powerful Creator who is All Mighty! WOW!

It seems to me that my generation of of Christianity focus more on the meaning of the beasts, the creatures, the lamps, light, thunder, etc...RATHER than enjoying and adoring the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! It is He that v 11 says is...“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” Revelation 4:11

It is HE who is greater than the symbolism! Not that we don’t seek understanding in knowing God, His ways, the seasons, times of which the symbolism may speak toward. But some are swept into the “discovery” of what symbols and signs mean - and lose sight of Jesus - THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!


The point for me is:
Grow in acknowledging the Lord’s holiness...more and more. And the more and more I’m doing this with a heart of worship, I think the more I will grow in knowing and being like Him. I want to focus my attention, lifestyle, way I study, teach, disciple...on THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. Teaching who He is, His ways, character, what He’s done... and then how we then shall live.


I have a trembling in my heart, thoughts, soul... as I am acknowledging YOU - MY LORD, MY GOD...YOU are ALMIGHTY... and You decide to share YOUR LIFE and reveal YOUR LOVE with me??? IN me??!!!! WHOAH! I say - HOLY - HOLY - HOLY - HOLY - HOLY...YOU ARE THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! THE LORD MY GOD! I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!
