The Bible says in Titus 2:13-14: “Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “God is Still on the Throne” (Part 6) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future”.
The fact that the four beasts are described as being “full of eyes” (or “lights”) indicates their divine knowledge and wisdom. They have access to the omniscient (“all-knowing”) wisdom of God to carry out His commands and His Judgments. The reader is assured that all of heaven operates under the infinite wisdom of God. His wisdom and grace shall indeed prevail. G.B. Caird writes, “There will be no triumph of God’s sovereignty at the expense of His mercy.”
The declaration, “Holy, holy, holy,” recognizes the triune nature of God. Just as Isaiah the prophet heard this declaration in the throne room of heaven, so John the apostle hears it as well. This is but one of the numerous interconnections of the divine revelation of Old and New Testament Scripture, proving that the symbols of the Apocalypse are drawn from the biblical record.
