This post carries on our exploration of Revelation chapter four. To start at the beginning please click here.
Revelation 4:5 ‘From the throne came flashes of lightening, rumblings and peals of thunder’.
This Old Testament description adds to the drama of the moment and speaks of the awesome power and glory of the presence of God.
Exodus 19:16 records: ‘On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled’.
God is not to be trifled with. The recent tragic weather extremes are a terrible reminder of the very awesome nature of God and the very puny nature of man.
Psalm 50:1 ‘The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets. From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth. Our God comes and will not be silent, a fire devours before Him and around Him a tempest rages.’
The Holy Spirit will perfectly and completely fulfil the will of God and achieve His purposes on this earth.
Revelation 4:5 ‘Before the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God’.
This is the complete expression of the lively and dynamic nature of the Holy Spirit.
God in His awesome power is about to move on this earth and its people!
To repeat once more:
Psalm 50:3 ‘Our God comes and will not be silent.’
