Worship- On Earth as it is in Heaven

April 15, 2018 Speaker: Damian Mericka Series: Revelation Text

Topic: Worship- On Earth as it is in Heaven

Title: Worship- On Earth as it is in Heaven

Series: Revelation

Text: Revelation 4-5

Main Idea: Our earthly worship is a rehearsal for the Heavenly!

 

  1. Worship: Celebrating God’s Glory, Honor & Power
  • An open door & invitation (Vv.1-2)
    • After This…a change has occurred (Note Rev 2)
  • God is central; around Him is Worship
    • Central Throne: The Brilliant Glory of God (Vv.2-3)
      • Lightning, rumbling and thunder (v.5)
      • Holy Spirit- Seven Torches of Fire / Spirits
        • See John 16:4-15
      • Twenty-Four Thrones / Elders (Vv.4-10, 11)
      • Angelic Cherubim (Vv.6-8)
  1. Worship: Acknowledging our Submission to God’s Authority
  • All of God’s Promises are only ever received through Jesus
    • Who is worthy? (Vv.1-5)
      • See I Peter 1:3-12
    • Between God and man stands Jesus, our Mediator (v6)
    • All Knowing, Jesus takes the scroll (v.7)
      • This Audience Worships Jesus with
        • Harp
        • Golden Bowls of Incense (Prayer)
          • See Matthew 6:9-13
        • Song
      • The Audience Grows to encompass Angelic Declaration (v.12)
      • The Audience becomes all of Creation (v.13)
        • See Philippians 2:11

Going deeper questions (SMall Group)

  • What stood out to you about this message and why?
  • Describe what John saw in Chapter 4 in your own words. Right now, everything in Heaven is worshipping God.  Does our heart mirror this scene in Heaven?
  • Why did John weep? Have you felt God, or His promises were out of reach or not for you? How do you overcome this?
  • How can we make our hearts a mirror of this eternal scene?
