In Rev 4 & 5, God Is On The Throne, Not Christ

The one book in the Bible that makes it very clear that Christ isn’t God, is Revelation.

Rev 4:1  After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard addressing me like [the calling of] a war trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place in the future.

Rev 4:2  At once I came under the [Holy] Spirit’s power, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with One seated on the throne!

Rev 4:3  And He [God] Who sat there appeared like [the crystalline brightness of] jasper and [the fiery] sardius, and encircling the throne there was a halo that looked like [a rainbow of] emerald.

Rev 4:4  Twenty-four other thrones surrounded the throne, and seated on these thrones were twenty-four elders (the members of the heavenly Sanhedrin), arrayed in white clothing, with crowns of gold upon their heads.

Rev 4:5  Out from the throne came flashes of lightning and rumblings and peals of thunder, and in front of the throne seven blazing torches burned, which are the seven Spirits of God [the sevenfold Holy Spirit];

Rev 4:6  And in front of the throne there was also what looked like a transparent glassy sea, as if of crystal. And around the throne, in the center at each side of the throne, were four living creatures (beings) who were full of eyes in front and behind [with intelligence as to what is before and at the rear of them].

Rev 4:7  The first living creature (being) was like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature had the face of a man, and the fourth living creature [was] like a flying eagle.

Rev 4:8  And the four living creatures, individually having six wings, were full of eyes all over and within [underneath their wings]; and day and night they never stop saying, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty (Omnipotent), Who was and Who is and Who is to come.

The statement “Who was and Who is and Who is to come” in Rev 4:8, is referring to God, not Christ, that truth is confirmed in Rev 1:4-5.

Rev 1:4 proves Christ is not God

Rev 1:4  John to the seven assemblies (churches) that are in Asia: May grace (God’s unmerited favor) be granted to you and spiritual peace (the peace of Christ’s kingdom) from Him [God] Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the seven Spirits [the sevenfold Holy Spirit] before His throne,

Rev 1:5  And from Yeshua Christ the faithful {and} trustworthy Witness, the Firstborn of the dead [first to be brought back to life] and the Prince (Ruler) of the kings of the earth. To him who ever loves us and has once [for all] loosed {and} freed us from our sins by his own blood,

Rev 4:9  And whenever the living creatures offer glory and honor and thanksgiving to Him [God] Who sits on the throne, Who lives forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities),

Rev 4:10  The twenty-four elders (the members of the heavenly Sanhedrin) fall prostrate before Him [God] Who is sitting on the throne, and they worship Him Who lives forever and ever; and they throw down their crowns before the throne, crying out,

Rev 4:11  Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

Rev 5:1  And I saw in the right hand of Him [God] that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

Rev 5:2  And I saw a strong angel announcing in a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the scroll? And [who is entitled and deserves and is morally fit] to break its seals?

Rev 5:3  And no man in heaven or on earth or under the earth [in the realm of the dead, Hades] was able to open the scroll or to take a [single] look at its contents.

Rev 5:4  And I wept audibly {and} bitterly because no man was found fit to open the scroll or to inspect it.

Rev 5:5  Then one of the elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin] said to me, Stop weeping! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root (Source) of David [Christ], has won (has overcome and conquered)! he can open the scroll and break its seven seals!

Rev 5:6  And there between the throne and the four living creatures (beings) and among the elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin] I saw a Lamb [Christ] standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God [the sevenfold Holy Spirit] Who have been sent [on duty far and wide] into all the earth.

Rev 5:7  He [Christ] then went and took the scroll from the right hand of Him [God] Who sat on the throne.

Rev 5:8  And when Christ had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin] prostrated themselves before the Lamb. Each was holding a harp (lute or guitar), and they had golden bowls full of incense (fragrant spices and gums for burning), which are the prayers of God’s people (the saints).

Rev 5:9  And [now] they sing a new song, saying, you are worthy to take the scroll and to break the seals that are on it, for you were slain (sacrificed), and with your blood you purchased men unto God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

Rev 5:10  And you have made them a kingdom (royal race) and priests to our God, and they shall reign [as kings] over the earth!

Rev 5:11  Then I looked, and I heard the voices of many angels on every side of the throne and of the living creatures and the elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin], and they numbered ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands,

Rev 5:12  Saying in a loud voice, Deserving is the Lamb [Christ], Who was sacrificed, to receive all the power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and majesty (glory, splendor) and blessing!

Rev 5:13  And I heard every created thing in heaven and on earth and under the earth [in Hades, the place of departed spirits] and on the sea and all that is in it, crying out together, To Him [God] Who is seated on the throne and to the Lamb [Christ] be ascribed the blessing and the honor and the majesty (glory, splendor) and the power (might and dominion) forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities)!

Rev 5:14  Then the four living creatures (beings) said, Amen (so be it)! And the elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin] prostrated themselves and worshiped {Him [God] Who lives forever and ever.}

The statement “Who lives forever and ever” is referring to God, that statement is never used for Christ in Revelation.

The teaching that says, “Christ is God” is false, here is a link to my posts that will prove Christ isn’t God https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/category/christ-is-not-god/
