Then the Spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place.
Centuries previously, Ezekiel had a similar experience to John’s in Revelation 4:1. Scripture authors had to have unique supernatural revelation for their unique divine assignment (2 Tim 3:16). We also need supernatural revelation to interpret the Scriptures aright (2 Tim 2:15). No wonder Paul prayed thus, “Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him” (Eph. 1:15-17). That’s my prayer for my flock and myself today in these treacherous last days.
