If you add all of the beauty and expense of all of Satan’s palaces, you still have not even come to the awe of one square millimeter of Yahweh’s throne. If you look at places like the United Nations headquarters buildings, the wonders of the world, the homes of the world’s top government officials, the mansions of the world bankers, the most expensive possessions of the world’s secular celebrities, or anything the eye can currently see, it does not scratch the surface of the beauty of the Kingdom of Yahweh as described by the prophets and in Revelation 4.
I remember going to see some of the military aircraft for health inspections. As I would look around, the equipment custodians would tell me about all of the features of each of the aircraft. Small screws were thousands of dollars, tires were expensive, and every detail is thought out to serve the purpose of the military.
Prior to John being exiled on the Island of Patmos, he was given a verdict by Emperor Domitian from Rome to be boiled to death. After ridicule and physical persecution, he may have had heavy burns, and a lot of anguish about how his disciples (to include the Smyrnian church, Bishop Polycarp, and others) would make it thru such heavy persecution. Yeshua gave a message of hope to John to show him that even though everything around him looks bad on Earth, and even though Rome and Emperor Domitian appear to have so much power, Yahweh is still more powerful.
Today, we see the New World Order rising. We see Great Britain rising thru the United Nations and America; creating chaos to give false illusions as a peacemaker, and gathering the world nations into one world government. We see the power given to horrific leaders as the Chinese government, Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union, or Adolf Hitler. We see millions of people killed as human sacrifices to Satan, and the immense power that the beast system government leaders have been given, but God showed us in Revelation 4 that His power, His throne, and His plan is more beautiful than anything the New World Order can potentially conjure. Revelation 4:1-6 says:
“After this I looked, and there in heaven a door stood open! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the spirit, and there in heaven stood a throne, with one seated on the throne! And the one seated there looks like jasper and carnelian, and around the throne is a rainbow that looks like an emerald. Around the throne are twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones are twenty-four elders, dressed in white robes, with golden crowns on their heads. Coming from the throne are flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and in front of the throne burn seven flaming torches, which are the seven spirits of God; and in front of the throne there is something like a sea of glass, like crystal (Revelation 4:1-6).”
Temples on Earth can be made with marble, gold, precious metals, they can be carved with the most extravagant statues, and constructed by the most experienced freemasons, but they cannot measure up to the throne of Yahweh. We see buildings with lights that come on when you ride onto their campus, but have you ever seen a campus that thunders like the throne of God? The most expensive buildings in the world are said to be the Mosques in Mecca, Saudi Arabia estimated to cost over $100 billion, but these buildings to not compare to the real estate of Heaven. The throne of God is full of precious stones, praising elders, angels, and the fiercest powers of the Earth (thunders, fire, water, and those proven to destroy the entire world populace such as was the case in the worldwide flood of Noah) are demonstrated to be at the mercy of Yahweh. Added onto the beauty of His throne are His symbols of His promise to Noah, Moses, and Abraham throughout the throne symbolized with the rainbow, the precious stones (showing His faithfulness to Israel), and the living creatures crying “Holy, Holy” (showing His eternal plan). He is faithful! He will fulfill His plan, and the Revelation 4 tells us that He is more powerful than the temporal struggles we experience on Earth.
Don’t worry, the New World Order will have power, but only for a short period of time. Yahweh is more powerful than all of Earth’s kings combined!
