In the scripture reading that John told a message. With “code names” he used, some people may think of this differently but the way I interpret this message is John is trying to send everyone a message.
Throne of Heaven~ Around the throne there was 24 elders dressed in white robes with golden crowns on their head. What does that sentence mean? The throne is a place where they can do what? I think it’s a way that they can pray to God, ask for forgiveness. The throne can represent power to whomever is there, whoever sits in the chair on the throne has the power to the people. People who believe in the throne can see the throne and go sit on the throne with God, people who don’t cannot see the throne.
Twenty-four Thrones Around God, with twenty-four Elders Seated~ A lot of people think that numbers are just used for math and in our lives for work, but in the the message John is trying teach us, he uses the number 24 out of all the numbers why 24? John said in his message that 24 elders were seated around the throne. I think it has to do with double the disciples.
Seven Spirits of God~ The seven spirits of God are Wisdom,Understanding,Counsel,Knowledge, Fortitude, Piety, Fear of the Lord, which are the gifts of God. There is one more the greatest gift of all, Love. Love is the greatest gift because you need love to have all the other gifts. If you don’t have one of these you can’t have any of them.
Four Living Creatures~ There are four living creatures John tells us about. One that looks like a lion, one like a human, one like an ox, and one eagle. What do all these creatures mean? Creatures are different from humans, so why would they have a animal with the face of a human? Why would an ox be there and an eagle? A lion could be there because it is the king of the jungle, so the Lord could think it was the strongest and the bravest. The eagle can fly through the air with passing the holy spirit. There are many different ways people interpret this.
