When John saw the door to heaven, open it symbolises that God loves us and invites us to enter into his kingdom. John looked around and the throne of heaven. To me, that symbolises God’s power, and leadership.
The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit all sit equally on the throne of Heaven, because God is three different persons. Around the throne was a rainbow with all of the colors. It shows that God loves and accepts all people, creatures, and things. There was twenty-four thrones around God with twenty-four elders seated. This is because there were twelve apostles. Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James, Thaddaeus, Simon and Judas. The elder’s all wore golden crowns. In front of the throne stood seven burning torches that represented the seven gifts of God. Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding, Piety, Fear and awe of the Lord, Fortitude, and Counsel. Seated at the side of the throne were four animals, one like a lion, one like an ox, one with a similar face of a human, and one like an eagle. All of these animal represent the books of the bible and represent and have traits of the gifts of God. These animal all had six wings to fly in all directions and eyes that could see inside and out. Only the faithful followers would understand John’s vision.
The priests were mad at John and peter because they were proclaiming that in Jesus, there is the resurrection of the dead. They were arrested and many people gathered. The next day people assembled in jerusalem with the high priest Annas other important people. They asked Peter and John by what power or what name did they do this. Then Peter filled with the holy spirit and told them jesus had healed a man. The council ordered them to leave so they could discuss what they could do with them we can not deny it it but stop it from spreading further let us warn them not to speak his name. The council told Peter and John but Peter answered and said they couldn’t not speak of their lord. After they threatened them they let Peter and John go. Finding no way to punish them because the praised God for what he had done.
Jesus sent Ananias to heal Saul and give him his vision back. Anasias questioned Jesus at first but then did as Jesus asked him to do. So then after they healed Saul, Saul joined the disciples in Damascus for a while.
1 Corinthians 13-13
Faith, hope and love abide the three together. Love is the greatest of all.
I think that this scripture is about what Jesus expects from his disciples, to follow the Lord.
