Turn with me to Chapter 4 of Revelation. Here we have
the picture of the throne of God. Friends, there are
four great chapters in the Bible that deal with God's
throne. Now there are two things above everything else
that I want to know. First, I want to know what God is
like so I study about God. I want to know about this
Being that I am going to meet when this heart stops

considering here. So if you want to study the Word of
God about the great throne that governs the whole
world, where God the Father sits and controls all
things, study these four chapters.
When John is caught up into heaven, he says, "I was in
the spirit", so in the spirit he was carried to heaven
and he saw a throne and he saw the One sitting on that
throne. When I first stud ...
