The Throne Room and the Scroll

Revelation 4-5
In this text, we are presented with a glorious, awe-inspiring, and central vision of the very throne room of God. By implication, we are also confronted with a heart-rending problem, as we see the contrast between how it is in heaven, vs. how it is on earth. Yet the text does not leave us there, but displays the glorious answer, central to history, of how the Lord brings about every last one of His purposes, in the answer that informs the whole book of Revelation, and is meant to drive us again and again to awestruck adoration and worship.
