The Lord God Almighty Reigns…

In Daniel, Yahweh, the Most High, the eternal, covenant keeping God of Israel, is seen as ruling over the nations to bring care for His people, Israel.

Having dealt with His Church in this present age, chapter four takes us to heaven.

We are face-to-face with the Lord of creation who is about to judge His creation and restore Israel.

The picture here is of sovereignty and control!

Revelation 4:1 and 11:19

The primary focus here involves the first half of the Tribulation from the viewpoint of God’s throne.

Neither the word “church”, which dominates chapters 2 and 3, nor the concept is again found in Revelation.

Jasper

Jasper is an opaque variety of chalcedony (quartz). It is most commonly red due to the presence of iron, but can also be found in yellow, brown and green.

In fact, one of the characteristics of jasper is that it is able to take a high polish and was used in ancient times as mantles, pillars, vases, and other interior decorations.

Pliny the Elder who lived and wrote around the same time that the book of Revelation was written, describes iaspis as “being green and often transparent” which is of interest since today we consider jasper to be opaque.

Carnelian (Sardius)

Carnelian is a translucent, hard, fine-grained variety of orangish red quartz that has often been used for ring stones and wax seals.

Carnelian is the modern word for the stone translated as sardius in the KJV.

Odem (Heb.) here could have been any one of several red stones known to the ancient Hebrews; the garnet or red jasper, as well as the sardius (carnelian).
