The Throne

Behold! What do you see up here on the altar today? A throne! The throne is one of the most important themes in the Book of Revelation. The word “throne” occurs more than 40 times in Revelation, and 17 out of 40 times occur in today’s passage, chapters 4 and 5. So why does the throne matter? The throne matters because it tells us who God is and how we should respond.
