Genesis 47:28-48:22; Psalms 26:1-27:14; Matthew 26:57-75

The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever. Rev. 4:10

The action of the four and twenty elders in falling down was provoked by the awesome sight of the glorified Lamb in the midst of the throne. Indeed there are several occasions in this book where the elders fall down upon seeing the glory of God. We know that the grace of God has placed us in a position of intimacy with Him that is unique, nevertheless, is it possible that we have lost that sense of awe and wonder in the presence of God? May the Lord renew within our hearts that godly fear that is due Him, when we gather with the Lord in our midst. —W. H. Burnett

Holy, Holy, Holy, all the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns, around the glassy sea. —R. Heber
