“Around the throne were twenty-four thrones; and upon the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white garments, and golden crowns on their heads” (Revelation 4:4).
Twelve tribes, twelve disciples, twenty-four thrones. The Lord gathers together the number that is right so that He completes what He has purposed. What does this mean? You can know for sure that this means that You have been invited to be a part of what He is creating. He has done it over the whole of human history and has called from among every tribe, tongue, folk and nation, those who will come to Him.
Having wisdom is not about knowing all things, but about pursuing understanding so that it effects how you live. Many look at this book and seek some sort of special knowledge. What use is that? So you know something. What is of use is the truth and the truth is that in many and various ways, God spoke to us through the prophets, but now in these last days He speaks to us through His Son. Jesus is His beloved Son, listen to Him.
Lord Jesus, You have made a revelation so that we would no longer be unbelieving, but believing. Guide me in my belief so that I give thanks for all of the saints who have gone before. Help me leave a trail to follow for all of the saints who will go after I am done here. Graciously allow me to be a part of the work of Your church while there is time by being faithful to Your call. Amen.
