Podcast #152: “Revelation Song” by Kari Jobe

Seeing the Throne of God in Ezekiel 1 and Revelation 4 & 5

Do we boldly approach the throne of God and forget how ASTONISHING that throne is? “Revelation Song” by Jennie Lee Riddle and famously sung by Kari Jobe leads us into the throne room of heaven. But before the song pointed to it, Ezekiel and John brought us there in Scripture.

Are you ready? Are you really ready to slow down and take in the stunning throne of God?

This Week’s Challenge

First, read Ezekiel chapter 1. Take it in slowly. Read it several times. If you love words, journal about it. If you love art, sketch something from it. Meditate on the throne of God and His glory. Then head over to Revelation 4 and 5 and do the same. Throughout the week keep reading or listening to the text. Take your eyes off of yourself, your circumstances, your need, and fix your eyes on the Lamb that was slain. Then put on Revelation Song and join all of creation in singing praise to our God.
