Draw Near to the Glory of God the Spirit: Revelation 4-5

Introduction: How Dependent Are We On the Spirit? 


  1. The Spirit is God (1:4, various) 
  2. The Spirit Brings Light and Heat (4:5, 5:6 Revelation 2-3)
  3. The Spirit is Sent to Accomplish the Purposes of the Father and Son (5:6)

Conclusion: Blood-Bought Power of the Spirit Leads to Praise (Gal. 3:2-5, Rev. 5:13-14)


 Rev 1:4 - John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne

Rev. 4:5 - From the throne came flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and before the throne were burning seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God

Rev 5:6 - And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
