Come Up Hither!  
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
Revelation 4:1 ¶ After this I looked, and, behold, a door [was] opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard [was] as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

No great cathedral, no mass choir, no driving musical beat. Nobody present to work him into a state of hysteria. Just him and the Lord. To us, this would be the ultimate experience, and yet John was invited to , "Come Up Hither."

There is always a higher realm, a higher experience in the Lord. Just as the apostle Paul stated that he had not obtained, and had expressed a desire to know Him, John was being elevated to yet another plane in the Spirit. He was taken to the throne of God.

Here he saw the Godhead embodied in the Lord Jesus Christ. He saw myriads of redeemed people of every kindred, tongue, nation and people, praising the Lamb, who had redeemed them by His blood, to be kings and priests unto God. Somewhere in this vast multitude, John saw you and me.

Revelation 4:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

This world is on a collision course with the judgment of Almighty God. Things of this world will be consumed with the fire of God's wrath. Our only means of escape is to be covered with the blood of Jesus and to be filled with His Holy Spirit. It won't be long until we hear our Lord call, Come Up Hither!

Somebody Has Said
“The Bible says that as long as we are here on earth, we are strangers in a foreign land. There are enemies to be conquered before we return home. This world is not our home; our citizenship is in heaven.” - Billy Graham
