The Heavenly Worship ;)


The Throne of Heaven symbolizes that God is very powerful and is above everyone else. It means that he is the leader and a ruler. The Throne of heaven also symbolizes stability and authority.
Twenty-four thrones around God with twenty-four elders seated. The number twenty four is a perfect number, it is the number of disciples times two and the twelve tribes of Israel times two as well.  Jacob’s (father of the 12 tribes of Israel) twelve sons were , Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph and Benjamin, become the ancestors of twelve tribes, with the exception of Joseph, whose two sons Mannasseh and Ephraim, who were adopted by Jacob, become tribal eponyms (Genesis 48). The twelve disciples were: Simon Andrew James John Phillip Bartholomew Thomas Matthew .
The Seven Spirits of God represent the Seven gifts of the holy spirit; Piety. Knowledge, Wisdom, Counsel, Understanding, Fear of the Lord, Fortitude, and the most important gift of all LOVE.
The Four living creatures are symbols of the gifts. The first animal was a lion, the lion symbolizes knowledge, wisdom, piety, and love. The second creature was an ox, it symbolizes counsel, fortitude, and fear of the Lord. A human, the third creature, symbolizes all of the gifts. The last animal, an eagle, symbolizes Knowledge, wisdom, piety, counsel, and love.
