In Revelation Ch. 4 we are given the second vision of our Lord Jesus Christ, His wonderful investiture with `power, dominion & authority. Previously we know that when Christ ascended to heaven He sat down at the right hand of the Father. `When He had made purification of sins He sat down at the right hand of the majesty on high.` (Heb. 1: 3) `I also overcame & sat down with My Father on His throne.` (Rev. 3: 21) And we know that God the Father has given His Son the highest place in all the heavens & in to eternity. `Higher than the heavens... The Son who has been perfected forever.` (Heb. 7: 26, 28) Now we are shown this position of power & authority being `set` up in heaven. The picture of the throne is the symbol of this power & authority. `behold, a throne set in heaven, & One sat on the throne,...` (Rev. 4: 2) Throne – in Gk. is `thrao` meaning a stately seat, power. This whole scene was also shown to Daniel. He saw Jesus, the Son of Man invested with power & authority over all the kingdoms of the world. ` And behold, one like the Son of Man,.... He came to the Ancient of Days,..To Him was given dominion & glory & a kingdom,....(Dan. 7: 13 & 14) Then before the throne are the 7 lamps of fire which are the` 7 Spirits of God.` `And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God.` (Rev. 4: 5) In Hebrew, the word seven, means to be complete. Thus this is a picture of the Holy Spirit in His complete, seven fold ministry in relation to Christ. `The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom & understanding, The Spirit of counsel & might,The Spirit of knowledge & of the fear of the Lord.`(Isa. 11: 2) Marilyn.
