Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.
My question is concerning Revelation chapter 4 verses 2 and 3.
Rev 4:2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne. Rev 4:3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
Who is the one who sits upon the throne? Is this Jesus? If it is, how does it fit with these verses in chapter 5?
Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
If the one on the throne is Jesus, and we know that the lamb is Jesus, how does Jesus take the scroll from Himself? If the one on the throne is not Jesus, is it God the Father? If so, how is John able to look upon Him? Any help you could give to this matter would be most appreciated.
According to 1st Corinthians 13:9, Paul speaks of “prophesying in part” and many people today point to that as justification for the many “prophecies” today being way off or completely wrong. Personally I don’t see that as being correct, and Deuteronomy speaks specifically of prophets having to be 100% correct or face dire consequences. Do you see justification for the many “prophets” today being wrong? Can we trust those people to be speaking for God?
