Heaven 34

In Revelation, Heaven is the place or world that is acknowledged by the true people of God:
Rev. 5:13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, singing,
?To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might
forever and ever!?
The Lamb is on the Throne in heaven and earthlings are to acknowledge that Throne.
Rev. 18:1 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was made bright with his splendor.
These two reference then trade in two ideas: God is in Heaven and God’s Throne is in Heaven, and earthlings are to acknowledge the creator of heaven and earth.

I agree and like Isaiah, a glimpse of this throne room causes one to “become undone.” It also happened to Paul. Is this a form of temporary insanity? See Isaiah 6:1-4.

We should all be insane like Paul. We should all be insane like John. Of course, that leaves us open to being struck blind, being boiled in oil, and being left alone on a desolate island somewhere….

Aye…I recall when Festus told Paul that he had gone mad with much learning! (Acts 26:24) All because Paul believed in the resurrection of the dead!
What an awesomely amazing and fearfully humbling experience that will be to stand before the throne, and before the only one who can truly satisfy!
