A Door Stood Open

In the scripture reading it talked about the throne of heaven and when John entered there stood a throne and heard a voice 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 of Jesus’s disciples. Jacob also had twelve sons which made the twelve ancient tribes. The names of the Twelve tribes were,Reuben,Simeon,Judah,Issachar,Zebulun,Benjamen,Dan,Naphtali,Gad, Asher,Ephraim,Manasseh. Twelve is considered a perfect number. In the reading there were four living creatures on each side of the throne.In the gospel the lion means Matthew, the ox is Mark, the human is Luke and the Eagle is John. It talks about the seven gifts of the holy spirit and the seven gifts are Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Knowledge, Fortitude, Piety, and fear of the lord but the greatest gift of them all is love. The number seven also represents the number of 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 reverence.It is used especially in the seasons of Christmas and Easter, as well as for baptism, marriage, dedications.
