Revelation 4:1-8 – a visual description of God’s throne room.

Jesus calls John up to heaven to heaven to reveal the future to him. John saw, a throne, symbolizing authority over all things, “One sitting on the throne,” who is the Father, 24 elders sitting on 24 thrones around the throne, representing humanity, “seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God,” and “four living creatures” “full of eyes in front and behind,” symbolizing knowledge of everything that happens on earth.
