Who Is the King
We do a bad job when we try to rule and regulate on our terms. God is the one sitting on the throne, but we carry on in life like we are the one sitting on the throne. At the end of this chapter, the whole world will be forced to recognize who is sitting on the throne! The contrast between Revelation 4-5 and Revelation 6 is glaring: Mankind either hails Him as King or hides from His face. Man’s problem is he is trying to hold things together without the omnipotent power by which everything consists. In the ring of life, you can know victory only by worshiping the one on the throne.
