John records what he saw when he entered through the opened door in heaven. It is fascinating to read about what is in the throne room and the activities. The incredible living creatures, also seen by Ezekiel, are there. Who do they represent, or are there creatures like that at heaven's throne? After all, both John and Ezekiel had this vision or dream, and we all know that dreams can have some kooky characters, but for them to see the same thing, it makes you think about the possibilities. I’m sure, as we go further into Revelation and compare it to Ezekiel, we will begin to uncover the meaning, hopefully.
Whatever becomes of this chapter we can be sure that John gives us some words to use in our worship of our Savior and the Father. I have prayed these words for many years now, and they help comfort me when I become fearful of the enemy’s plan. I pray them before I recite The Lord’s Prayer. Maybe they will become useful to you also.
Some of the verses are only partial because I wanted you to see how I pray and worship the way the creatures and elders worship in Heaven.
