1) In Revelation 4:2-6, Joh describes God's throne in heaven but never portrays what God looks like or ascribes any form to Him. What did he see and why does He describe the scene this way?

2) What does the text tell us about the 24 elders? Read Exodus 3:16; 19:7; Acts 14:23; 1 Timothy 5:17; Titus 1:6 and identify two important groups of elders in the Old and New Testaments. What conclusions are possible about the identity of the 24 elders based on the use of the term in Scripture?

3) If worship on earth should be a preview of worship in heaven, what could we learn and employ in our worship based on these chapters?

4) Read Revelation 5:8. What does this teach us about prayer?

5) Having studied this chapter, how would you like your participation in our Sunday celebration gatherings to change?
