A Door standing open

Today’s Encouragement is Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

A door standing open – 

The door to heaven my friend, stands open!  As this chapter goes on to reveal, this door is open to the very Throne Room of Heaven! 

Jesus is that open door (John 10:9). Only through Him, accepting Him as Lord, can we enter.  

And once we are in Him, we are inside!  And inside the Door of Jesus, is the most majestic sight imaginable!  Far beyond what we can now imagine!  The very throne room of God!  He’s surrounded by an emerald rainbow, creatures we’ve never seen, 24 elders also on thrones, wearing golden crowns, flashes of lightning, peals of thunder…and much, much more – Truly His throne is a most awesome and humbling sight.

And to this glorious place… the door stands… open.  Jesus is the door!

  1. I usually don’t venture into revelation much cause I lack understanding of much of it but it’s Gods powerful word I need to see

    1. Yes, I agree, Revelation is difficult to understand. I read it with a prayer for understanding, which is always a good way, the best way, to read the Bible, and try to absorb what I can… and I don’t ( I try not to…) obsess or concern myself about what I can’t understand.

      I think this is based on a trust that God will reveal to me what I need from His Word, for now. Next week, when I read the same passage, He may reveal something else, a different thought. This is based on the belief that His word is living and alive… so it is not limited, it can apply to many different situations.

      And this takes off my back, any pressure to try to understand the complicated or obscure portions of scripture.

      Someone once said, “It’s not about knowing everything in the Bible, it’s about doing what I do know that’s in the Bible.”
