Give Me a Revelation

Give me a revelation has been the cry of my heart for the last few weeks. I have been going through the Beth Moore Study on Revelation and she has encouraged us to wake each morning and ask God to reveal himself to us. I have been amazed and astounded by what the Lord is revealing to me.

Do we have a revelation of him in this generation? Do we know how awesome in power and splendor he is?

The one who spoke all creation into existence with just a word is a more awesome and powerful God than what I think we make him to be. We like to think of him as our friend ~ and he is~ but we forget that while he loves us and is gentle with us, that he is also holy. Immensely Holy. We need to have a revelation of that.

“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” Revelation 4:11

If you search the scriptures you will find that there are a few amazing glimpses into what the very throne of God looks like. Try to picture this scene in your mind and then draw it out on paper to get an idea of the positioning of the elements around the throne.

“…and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian. A rainbow, resembling an emerald, encircled the throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. Before the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God, Also before the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures…” Revelation 4:2-6

I don’t know about you, but I can’t read this description of the throne of God Almighty without the spirit within me crying out:

 “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, is the Lord God Almighty who was, and is, and is to come.” Revelation 4: 8b

Ask God to reveal himself to you. Tell him you want a revelation of how Holy He is. Then watch and listen, you will be overtaken with awe.

Blessings friends!
