Q. Thank you for all your hard work and insight into the word of God. My question concerns the one who sat on the throne in Revelation 5:7. Jesus said in John 4:24, “God is a Spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”. I have always wondered about Rev. 5:7 and have never had an interpretation that I could fully grasp. A spirit is like the wind, you can’t see the wind but you can see the effects of the wind. So would this not indicate that a spirit can’t be seated on a literal throne. It would seem to me that it be would Jesus seated on the throne in his resurrected body. In Mathew 28: 18 Jesus said “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth”. Could this some how be what revelation chapter 5 and verse 7 is referring to? Thank you in advance for your answer.
A. In this world we are constrained from seeing Spiritual beings except when God “opens our eyes” as He did with Elisha’s servant in 2 Kings 6:18, or when they take on human form, like Jesus did. But in the Spiritual world it’s not that way. God can see His angels and they can see Him. Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and John all had their eyes opened and saw God seated on His throne. Psalm 110 says that Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father.
