I just wanted to share some photo’s from the Chile Puyehue Volcano eruptions last week. I saw some similarities to the descriptions of the throne room that we have been looking at. The flashes of lightning and the glowing fire like red really stands out to me. It is hard not to see Him in His creation 🙂
I also found some stuff on the seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God found in Revelation 4:5
The number seven represents perfection and completion. So this could be a description of the fullness and perfection of the Holy Spirit. We see the Seven Spirits of God found 3 other times in the book of Revelation: 1:4, 3:1, and 5:6.
Mike Bickles notes from his Revelation study guide says that they, “speak of the Holy Spirit in His sevenfold perfection with His many divers manifestations (Isaiah 11:2)”
The diverse manifestations in Isaiah 11:2
“The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him,
The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The spirit of counsel and strength,
The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.”
1. The Spirit of the Lord 2. The Spirit of Wisdom 3. The Spirit of Understanding 4. The Spirit of Counsel 5. The Spirit of Strength 6. The Spirit of Knowledge 7. The Spirit of the Fear of the LORD
Hope you guys are all doing well! I am looking forward to touching on the sea of glass and the four living creatures NEXT.
