What Does Revelation 4:8 Mean?

And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME."

Revelation 4:8(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

How blessed was the apostle John, who was the chosen witness to write of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to Him to show His servant what was soon to happen. And how blessed are we to receive it, for this is the eternal God and great Creator of the universe, Who has deigned to tell us ahead of time, details of His glorious plan for us and perfect purposes for the world in which we live.

Having been given the seven letters to the churches, the aged John was raptured into heaven and witnessed sights of great wonderment and awe. He saw hosts of ministering angels and the four living creatures that worship the Lord almighty day and night, lifting up their united voices of praise to God, with a never-ending anthem of praise, that will one day be on the lips of every creature in heaven and earth and under the earth - Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Eye has not seen not ear heard, nor has it entered into the imagination of man the wonderful things that God has prepared for all those that love Him. Holy, Holy, Holy is the triune Godhead, and this is the continuous hymn that pours forth from the living creatures. Holy is the one and only Holy Father, Holy is the unique Holy Son of His love and Holy is the singular Holy Spirit of purity and grace.

He is holy in His majesty, holy in His person, Holy in His office and Holy in the works of His hand and the words of His mouth. He was holy in eternity past and will be holy in eternity future and He is holy in the present time and in all the surrounding space.

This One of Whom the choirs of heaven lift up day and night with their never-ending shout of praise – stretched out His holy arms of love on a cruel cross to drink to the dregs full brimming cups of GOD’s wrath poured out upon Him, so that all that believe on His name would not be condemned but have the light of life– such is the mystery of Godliness.

My Prayer

Holy Father, there is none like You and You alone are worthy of all glory and praise. Thank You for my salvation and that I have been bought with the precious blood of Christ, so that I too can sing in the eternal ages to come, Holy, Holy, Holy, LORD God Almighty, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
