Who are these 24 elders?
Revelation 4:4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads.
10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: 11“You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”
I believe, these 24 elders are representative to the church as a whole. They are dressed in white garments. They are given crowns. They cast their crowns at the feet of the Lamb, aka, Jesus. They also fall at Jesus' feet. They worship Him throughout eternity declaring His worthiness. The next chapter, they sing a song that only the blood bought, Jesus redeemed church could sing. We will look at that deeper. I think whats cool here, if the 24 elders are the church, then we worship Jesus with the very crowns He gives us. Use all we have to the praise and glory of God. LORD, enable me to see & know that You have blessed me beyond understanding and its all for You. Please keep me from holding anything back that belongs to You.
