You recognize this?
“Before the throne there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back…and they do not rest day or night saying, “Holy, holy, holy. Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”
Worship is about this: The Throne, Transparency (sea of glass) Transformation (4 living creatures)
ABOUT THE THRONE:
He is the object and intention and central theme and personaliy of our worship. Al things emanate from Him and flow to Him. His throne is magnetic and getting to Him requires that we cross the sea of transparency, self-examination, self-disclosure and revelation. And…OH the Sight of Him that sits on the throne…it requires constant, incessant, sights of His appearance and unveiling that’s why the creatures require EYES all around.
These four living creatures arise out of the worship before the throne. You must worship before the sea of glass where God requires that you disclose and disrobe. Get rid of who you were, understand the underpinnings of your error, and find yourself in the truth and your true identity and divinity…and take a bath while you’re at it (reminiscent of the bronze laver where the priest wash that was made out of the looking glass of the women of Israel.)
And out of that exposure you are a new creation. I don’t care how many times you worship. It doesn’t matter the outcome of your behavior…each time you have an authentic worship experience you are DIFFERENT. You are changed. In fact it is impossible to have worshiped, truly worshiped, and not change. Change is not based only on behavior; sometimes there’s a work much deeper than the outside, external behavior. It’s about the inside and everytime I worship, I am more divine than I was before that moment. If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation/creature. That’s not a one time event. That’s why the creatures have four faces. The creatures never cease to evolve in form. If you stay in Christ you continue to evolve into the divine thought God intended. That’s transformation.
We are Creatures that NEVER lose SIGHT of the THRONE and He that sits on the THRONE.
