Three Gifts Opened Up



1. The Bible, opened up. Last night I was blessed to watch The Boy read our evening passage. 










2. A door standing OPEN in heaven


Revelation 4:1 
After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, "Come up here and I will show you things which must take place after this."


 ....and he was in the throne room. Twenty four thrones and  twenty four elders around the "One the throne". Thunder, lightening, voices, seven lamps of fire. Four creatures full of eyes and wings singing with glory and thanksgiving, 

"Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!"

Albrecht Durer - 'St John and the Twenty-four Elders in Heaven' from

Albrecht Durer's "St. John and the Twenty-four Elders in Heaven"
and ....(verse 9-11)"Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:


"You are worthy, O Lord,

To receive glory and honor and power;

For You created all things,

And by Your will they exist and were created.”












3. Open My Eyes, hymn by Clara H. Scott

"Open my eyes, that I may see glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key that shall unclasp and set me free.

Refrain
Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my eyes, illumine me,
Spirit divine!

Open my ears, that I may hear voices of truth Thou sendest clear;
And while the wave notes fall on my ear, everything false will disappear.

Refrain

Open my mouth, and let me bear, gladly the warm truth everywhere;
Open my heart and let me prepare love with Thy children thus to share."

Dear Lord, open my eye to see your truths, open my ears to hear your truths and open my mouth to share your truths! Thank you for your many blessings.
