A Door Stood Open!

In the scripture reading it talked about the Throne of Heaven and when John entered there stood a throne with a man saying “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” There in Heaven stood God seated on the throne. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones Which was twice the number of Jesus’s disciples. Jacob also had twelve sons which made the twelve ancient tribes. The names of the tribes are Reuben, Simeon, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Ephraim, Manasseh. Twelve is considered a perfect number. In the reading it talked about the 4 living creatures which was saying that Lion is Matthew, the Ox is mark, the Human is Luke and the Eagle is John. It also talked about the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit and the seven gifts are Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Knowledge, Fortitude, and Piety, Fear of the Lord, but the greatest gift of all of them is Love. The number seven also represents the number of the days in a week. It is also a good number and there are only seven music notes. White symbolizes purity, holiness, and virtue, as well as respect and reference. It is used especially in the seasons of Christmas and Easter, as well as for baptism, marriage, dedication, funerals and as a symbol of the resurrection.
