“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.”  lmmediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne (Revelation 4: 1 – 2).

A door standing open in heaven

To a believer, a follower of Christ, who loves and worships Him in Spirit and truth, the door of heaven always stands open.  He operates under an open heaven 24/7.  The door of heaven is closed only to the one whose hands are dirty and whose heart is not pure in His sight.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.  He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation” (Psalms 24:3-5 KJV).

Come up here

God’s invitation is always available.  It is an open invitation to all His children.  And that invitation is “come up here.”  When we heed this invitation He Himself brings us by His Spirit into His very presence.  The invitation is an upward one.  Oh that as Christians we would look more upward and less earthward!

I will show you things

It is only when we heed the upward invitation of God that we can be shown the things He longs to show and tell us.  It is only in God’s presence that we can be shown and told secret things.  Now by being shown things I do not mean visions, audible voices or such things.  God will reveal things to us – He will give us  better understanding,  shed  light on things, issues and questions that have bothered or bothers us  either in the past or the present.  He will answer many of our questions.  He will give us deeper revelation of Himself.  He will illuminate, explain, and expatiates Scriptures to us.  He will show us things about our walk with Him, give us guidance and divine counsel.  He will reveal Himself to us more and more.

Immediately I was in the Spirit

I used to struggle and work myself up especially in trying times thinking I need to break through to heaven.  The blood and sacrifice of Christ have paved the way into God’s presence for us. When we come before God simply by faith in the blood and name of His son Jesus Christ we are in His presence. 

 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,  And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel” (Hebrews 12:22-24KJV).

And behold a throne set in heaven

When we come before God we stand before His throne: the all supremacy, the monarch of the universe, the Judge of the whole earth, the almighty God!  And He is OUR FATHER!

Dear child of God every time you pray, whisper a word to God in your heart, remember that you are in the very throne room of God – your Father.  He is never too busy running this world that you don’t have His full attention.  He sees what’s going on in the darkest and cruelest situations on earth and still has His eyes on you and His ears attentive to you one on one.  

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16 KJV)
