A Study of Prophecy - Other Pre-Tribulational Events


In this section we will look at the scripture regarding the following:

  1. The Bema Judgment

  2. The Marriage of the Lamb

  3. The Throne of God

  4. The Lamb and the Seven Sealed Scroll

The Bema Judgment

Luke records the words of Jesus, indicating that the Tribulation period will come upon us suddenly, like a trap, and therefore we should all be prepared to escape it. We should be prepared to "stand before the Son of Man".

Luk 21:34-36 "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. (35) For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. (36) Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."

The reason that we are to stand before the Son of Man is to give an account of our works. This is a rewards ceremony for those who are already believers, the church, which has just been brought to where Jesus is (Joh 14:1-3), and therefore is not the basis for salvation.

Rom 14:10-12 You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat. (11) It is written: "'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.'" (12) So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

2Co 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

Rev 22:12 "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.

This accounting of our works is for the purpose of determining our rewards. The basis is not the quantity of works, but the quality.

1Co 3:11-15 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. (12) If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, (13) their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work. (14) If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. (15) If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved--even though only as one escaping through the flames.

The evaluation of works is based on:

  1. The extent to which our ministry and lives follow the Word of God.

  2. The extent to which we have been faithful stewards of all God has given us.

  3. Our motives.

We are encouraged to work for rewards.

Mat 16:27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

Mat 6:19-21 "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. (20) But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. (21) For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Luk 12:31-34 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. (32) "Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. (33) Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. (34) For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Luk 14:13-14 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, (14) and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."

1Ti 6:18-19 Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. (19) In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.

1Jn 2:28 And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming.

Some rewards take the form of crowns.

1Co 9:25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.

1Th 2:19 For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you?

2Ti 4:8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Jas 1:12 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

1Pe 5:4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

Rev 2:10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor's crown.

Rev 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.

Some rewards take the form of authority and rulership. This authority and rulership is for the duration of the Millennial Kingdom. In the Eternal State, all believers will be equal.

Mat 25:19-21 "After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. (20) The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.' (21) "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'

Luk 19:11-27 While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. (12) He said: "A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return. (13) So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. 'Put this money to work,' he said, 'until I come back.' (14) "But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, 'We don't want this man to be our king.' (15) "He was made king, however, and returned home. Then he sent for the servants to whom he had given the money, in order to find out what they had gained with it. (16) "The first one came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned ten more.' (17) "'Well done, my good servant!' his master replied. 'Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.'

The timing of this judgment is somewhere between the Rapture and the second coming. When Jesus returns to earth, His "holy ones and saints" are with Him, and already rewarded, so the judgment has to have occurred before His second coming with the saints.

Rev 19:8 Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God's holy people.)

Rev 19:14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.

The Marriage of the Lamb

The Jewish Wedding

To fully grasp the eschatology of the Church and the Marriage of the Lamb, it is helpful to understand the ancient Jewish wedding. Jewish weddings were arranged marriages with an elaborate ritual.


The process of the wedding started off with the father of the groom establishing a marriage covenant with the father of the bride. This was called the "betrothal". This involved making arrangements for the wedding, and paying the bride price. The age this arrangement occurred varied, from when the bride and groom were young children, to a year before the wedding. Many times the groom and bride would not meet until the day of the wedding.

Once the marriage covenant was agreed to, the bride would then be set aside, or sanctified.

The groom would go to live in his fathers house, and there he would prepare a room addition for he and his bride to live in. This preparation is why the bride would be betrothed a year before the actual wedding. During this time, the groom is absent from the bride, and the length of time he would be gone is deliberately indeterminate, the bride does not know when he will return. His return is imminent.

In the meantime, the bride would prepare for the groom's return.

Surprise Gathering to Fetch the Bride

The groom's father is the one who determined when the groom would return to fetch his bride. This would ensure that the groom finished preparing a place for himself and his bride.

When the groom did return to fetch his bride, and since the bride did not know when he was coming, it would typically be preceded by a shout, which would warn the bride that the groom was coming.

The groom, best man, and a few attendants would leave the fathers house and proceed to the brides home to fetch her. The story of the 10 Virgins would apply at this point as well, as they were a part of the group of attendants.

The Wedding

The wedding takes place, and the bride and groom consummate their union, after which, they come out of the bridal chamber and announce it to the members of the wedding party. The wedding party would then announce it to the wedding feast guests.

Only a few people are invited to the wedding itself, but many are invited to the wedding feast afterwards.

The Wedding Feast

The wedding supper typically lasts up to 7 days (Jdg 14:12). In addition to the wedding party, a large number of guests are also invited to the wedding feast.

Jdg 14:12 "Let me tell you a riddle," Samson said to them. "If you can give me the answer within the seven days of the feast, I will give you thirty linen garments and thirty sets of clothes.

The Lamb's Wedding

In the wedding of the Lamb, Jesus, to the church, there are parallels evident to the Jewish wedding.


Eph 5:25-27 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her (26) to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, (27) and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.

In the Jewish wedding, the father of the groom negotiated a price for the bride. In the Lamb's wedding, God the Father paid the price for the bride by sending His son Jesus to redeem the bride.

In the Jewish wedding, some extended period of time would pass between the time the father paid the price, and the groom went to fetch the bride. During this time the groom is preparing a place for them. In the Lamb's wedding, it has been an extended period of time since the Father paid the price. The bride has been waiting some 2000 years for the groom to come fetch His bride.

Surprise Gathering to Fetch the Bride

1Th 4:13-18 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. (14) For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. (15) According to the Lord's word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. (16) For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. (17) After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. (18) Therefore encourage one another with these words.

In the Jewish wedding, at some indeterminate time, the groom will finally fetch his bride. In the Lamb's wedding, the Rapture is the fetching of the bride, the church. Jesus will come in the air, and take her to where He is, where He has been preparing a place for the bride. As in the Jewish wedding, only the Father knows when this will occur.

The Wedding

As in the Jewish wedding, where the wedding between the bride and groom occurs with a small party, so it will be with the Lamb's wedding.

Rev 19:6-8 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. (7) Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. (8) Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God's holy people.)

There are a few points to consider here.

First, the bride has been sanctified. Being set aside, she has prepared for the coming of the groom.

Second, it is clear that the Bema Judgment has already occurred at this point, since the bride mentioned in Rev 19 has already been determined to have righteous acts, and as a result, she is dressed in "fine linen, bright and clean". In order for that determination to have been made, a judgment had to have taken place already. So we can determine that the wedding takes place after the Rapture, and after the Bema Judgment.

Third, the wedding takes place before the 2nd coming of Christ to the earth. In Rev 19:14-15 we read of those returning with Jesus riding on white horses, and again dressed in the "fine linen, white and clean". This shows that the wedding will take place after the Bema Judgment and before the 2nd coming.

Rev 19:14-15 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. (15) Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter." He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.

The Wedding Feast

After the Jewish wedding, there is a feast. While the wedding itself is attended by a small party, the feast includes many guests. So it is with the Lamb's wedding feast. Some points to note regarding the feast are:

First, the Rapture occurs before the Tribulation, and involves only the church in heaven and a small party of angel attendants.

Second, at the end of the tribulation the Old Testament and Tribulation saints will have been resurrected. These are the "friends of the Bridegroom". As resurrected saints, they will be present and able to attend the wedding feast, this will consist of a much larger party. This party, the "Wedding Feast" will take place on earth at the start of the Millennial Kingdom.

The Wedding Feast

Isa 25:6-8 On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine-- the best of meats and the finest of wines. (7) On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; (8) he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people's disgrace from all the earth. The LORD has spoken.

Rev 19:9 Then the angel said to me, "Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!" And he added, "These are the true words of God."

Resurrection of OT Saints

Isa 26:19 But your dead will live, LORD; their bodies will rise-- let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy-- your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead.

Dan 12:2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.

Resurrection of Tribulation Saints

Rev 20:4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Some of the parables describe the Lamb's wedding including the Parable of the 10 Virgins, which we covered earlier, and the Parable of the Wedding Feast.

In this parable, we recall that the Kingdom was previously offered to Israel, and Israel's leaders rejected this Kingdom offer. These are those in the parable that refused their Messiah and His Kingdom offer.

The destruction and burning of the murderers and the city actually happened in 70AD. Prophetically, this looks forward to the Tribulation period.

Those in the streets who are invited consist of both sinners and saints.

The person without the wedding clothes was to be thrown out. At that time, the only requirement was that the clothes be clean. This represents the "fine linen", or the "righteous acts".

Mat 22:1-14 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: (2) "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. (3) He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. (4) "Then he sent some more servants and said, 'Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.' (5) "But they paid no attention and went off--one to his field, another to his business. (6) The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. (7) The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. (8) "Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. (9) So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.' (10) So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. (11) "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. (12) He asked, 'How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?' The man was speechless. (13) "Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' (14) "For many are invited, but few are chosen."

The Throne of God

The Throne Room

John is given a vision of events occurring in the throne room of God in heaven. God is about to show him the "things that must take place after this". John is "in the spirit", meaning he is experiencing a vision.

Rev 4:2 At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.

"things that must take place after this" pertains to after the seven churches in Rev 2-3. The ordering of these visions John saw may itself indicate a pre-tribulational Rapture, as the events Paul is about to be shown occur after the vision pertaining to the seven churches, however, this is inconclusive.

Rev 1:19 "Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later.

What John sees is God the Father on His throne, and around His are 24 other thrones. Seated on the 24 thrones are 24 elders. The 24 elders are described as dressed in white and wearing crowns of gold.

Rev 4:3-4 And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne. (4) Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.

The 24 Elders

The identity of the 24 elders is the subject of much debate, as scripture does not explicitly state who they are. Some say they are representatives of the church, others say they are celestial beings. Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum lists several characteristics that provide clues through which we can deduce who they are.

They are clothed in "white garments". White garments throughout the Revelation indicate salvation. Angels and celestial beings would not require salvation, since they were not lost to begin with

Rev 3:4 Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes. They will walk with me, dressed in white, for they are worthy.

Rev 3:5 The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.

Rev 3:18 I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Rev 6:11 Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been.

Rev 7:9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

Rev 7:13 Then one of the elders asked me, "These in white robes--who are they, and where did they come from?"

Rev 7:14 I answered, "Sir, you know." And he said, "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Rev 19:14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.

These elders are wearing "crowns". These crowns are not the crowns of royalty, but the crowns of reward. Greek "stephanos", the same type of crowns we will be rewarded at the Bema Judgment.

The title "elders" is a clue as well. The term is never used in scripture of angels or celestial beings. It is a term used of humans in positions of authority in either the church or the synagogue.

The image of 24 elders is not without precedent in the Old Testament scripture. In 1 Chronicles 24, David divides the tribe of Levi into 24 courses to represent the whole. So it would seem that these 24 elders in God's throne room would represent the church as a whole. This is another indicator of a pre-tribulational Rapture, since the Tribulation has not yet started at the time John is observing the elders already in heaven.

The above clues certainly seem to provide an indication of who these 24 elders are, but again, scripture is not explicit, and so we can't be dogmatic about their identity.

The Holy Spirit

Also in the Throne room, we find the Holy Spirit.

Rev 4:5 From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God.

The "seven spirits" are representative of the seven attributes of the Holy Spirit.

Isa 11:2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him-- the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD--

The Four Living Creatures

Also in the Throne room, there are "four living creatures", each with 6 wings, crying "Holy, Holy Holy" without ever stopping.

Rev 4:6 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back.

Rev 4:8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: "'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,' who was, and is, and is to come."

From Isaiah, we learn that these creatures are called "seraphim"

Isa 6:1-3 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. (2) Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. (3) And they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory."

Each of the four seraphim has a different characteristic.

Rev 4:7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle.

The Continual Worship

All are engaged in continual worship before the throne of God:

The Four Living Creatures

Rev 4:8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying: "'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,' who was, and is, and is to come."

The 24 Elders

Rev 4:10-11 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being."

The Seven Sealed Scroll

The Seven Sealed Scroll

The seven sealed scroll is the prelude to the start of the Tribulation period. The prelude is a period of calm at the start of the seal, trumpet and bowl judgments.

Rev 5:1 Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals.

The Search For One Worthy to Open the Scroll

A search is made for someone worthy to open the scroll. No mortal being can be counted worthy. John's weeping appears to be due to the possibility that evil and wickedness could go on and on for some time if no one is found to open the scrolls and begin the judgment of Israel and the world. The opening of the scroll will begin the time of judgment and will determine the judgment evil and wickedness has finally arrived.

Rev 5:2-4 And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?" (3) But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. (4) I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside.

Jesus is the Worthy One

A worthy person has been found. Jesus takes the scroll from the Father.

Jesus is pictured as he was and will be for both of His comings. He came first as a lamb led to the slaughter.

Isa 53:7 He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.

Joh 1:35-36 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. (36) When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"

Jesus in His second coming will be as a lion, of the tribe of Judah. Judah was like a lions cub, and from Judah would come the Messiah.

Gen 49:9-10 You are a lion's cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness--who dares to rouse him? (10) The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his.

Jesus in His second coming is also referred to as the "Root of David".

Isa 11:1 A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.

Isa 11:10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious.

Jer 23:5 "The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.

Jer 33:15 "'In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David's line; he will do what is just and right in the land.

Rom 15:12 And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; in him the Gentiles will hope."

When speaking of a lamb "as if it had been slain", John is speaking of Jesus' death and resurrection. The message here is that supreme sacrifice has lead to supreme power, and as such, Jesus is able to take the scroll from the Father. When Jesus takes the scroll from the father a transference of power and authority is moved to Jesus to reveal the future and bring about judgment.

Rev 5:5-7 Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals." (6) Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. (7) He went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne.

All Worship to Jesus

Upon Jesus taking the scroll, and the impending start of judgment, all of heaven breaks out in praise and worship to the Lamb that was slain.

Rev 5:8-14 And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God's people. (9) And they sang a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation. (10) You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth." (11) Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. (12) In a loud voice they were saying: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!" (13) Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: "To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!" (14) The four living creatures said, "Amen," and the elders fell down and worshiped.
