TO CHEW ON: "Day and night they never stop saying, 'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.'” Revelation 4:8
Have you ever seen an angel? Have you seen Jesus? God? Heaven? Most of us haven’t. But God gave John a peek inside heaven. As we read his description, we get the feeling heaven is so incredibly magnificent, John had a hard time finding words to describe it.

Look in Revelation 4:1-11 and then list:
1. Some of the sounds John heard:
2. Some of the sights he saw:
3. Some of the characters he watched:
But no matter how amazing everything else was, God was the center of heaven’s attention.
4. Where was God and what did he look like?
5. How did those who lived in heaven worship Him?
God is heaven’s main attraction. All the glory and splendor and radiance and magnificence; all the cheering of nature, angel beings and people, belongs to Him!
PRAYER: You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things and by your will they were created and have their being. Amen (Revelation 4:11)
