FROM THE NATURAL INTO
“After these things I looked, and behold,
a door standing open in heaven. And the
first voice which I heard was like a trumpet
speaking with me, saying, ‘Come up here,
and I will show you things which must take
place after this.'” (Revelation 4:1)
Please understand that one’s position in the
realm of the spirit is very important in the
reception of information. And the quality of
information one has determines how efficient
he can wage his warfare and maneuver in the
natural and even in the spirit.
In the anchor scripture, God wanted to show
John something but He wanted him to step
up out from the natural and come into the
supernatural before He could show him.
“Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a
throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
And He who sat there was like a jasper and a
sardius stone in appearance; and there was a
rainbow around the throne, in appearance like
an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four
thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four
elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they
had crowns of gold on their heads. And from
the throne proceeded lightnings, thunderings,
and voices. Seven lamps of fire were burning
before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of
God.”(Revelation 4:2-5) He had previously seen
the door of heaven opened but he needed to step
into the spirit realm to see the things in heaven.
There was no way John would have seen the
throne of Jehovah, the twenty four elders and
their thrones at that level.
