The Grand prophetic Vision we Anticipate

Revelation 4:8-5:10

  1. Read Revelation 4:8–5:10 out loud. Discuss concisely your first emotional response to this passage. How does it make you feel when you read it together?

  2. What are the twenty-four elders doing in heaven (4:10–11)? What is the dominant activity of heaven? Some have said that worship is the most important activity of the church. Do you agree? What is worship? Why is worship important? Can you tell about a time of worship together with others that was anything like what is described in these verses? How does worship benefit the individual believer? How does worship strengthen the church as a whole?

  3. Read 5:1–4. How exhaustive is the angel's search in 5:3? Why do you think that John began to "weep greatly" (5:4)?

  4. What do the titles "the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah" and the "the Root of David" mean (5:5; see Gen. 49:9–10; 2 Sam. 7:1–2,13–16; Isa. 11:1–2, 10; Rev. 22:16)? Why do you think that they are important?

  5. What is the "Lamb" pointing to (5:6; Isa. 53:7; John 1:36; 21:15)? What is worth noting about the phrase "standing, as if slain"? How would you describe this blend of Jesus' being both the lamb and the lion (see Ps. 2)?

  6. What does Jesus' act in 5:7 demonstrate? Why is this act important?

  7. Why does heaven sing a "new song" (5:9–10)? In this song, the Lamb receives honor as being worthy in view of four things. What are these four things, and why are they significant?

  8. Look again at 5:10. Who will be present at this gathering? Will you be there? Why do you think so? What should we do so that all those mentioned might be able to be there?
