The glorious scene in chapters 4-5 brings us into the presence of the triune God. The Father is worshiped as the holy and eternal Creator of all things (4:1-11). The Son is worshiped as the worthy Redeemer who purchased for God with His blood people from every tribe and tongue and people and nation (5:1-10). The Father and the Son together are worshiped in 5:11-14.
Because of its highly symbolic nature, many who have read the Apocalypse have slipped into one extreme of concluding that it is inexplicable and therefore unfruitful to study, or the opposite extreme of speculating about every nuance in the book. It is more profitable to take a middle course—much of the symbolism of Revelation is explained in the book itself and in other books, such as Ezekiel and Daniel; however, there are a number of things that remain mysterious in Revelation, and we should not be overconfident in supposing that we can decode every part.
