It’s a rather bizarre albeit colorful scene. There is a throne surrounded by countless people from every tribe and every nation, speaking every language. Imagine them chattering in their native tongues, circling around this area in excitement and confusion —people from near and far. I think of it looking like what Salvador Dali’s rendition of the Los Angeles airport might look like. Multitudes from near and far under one roof. But in our text today these people are there not to catch a flight, rather they are all dressed in white, standing before the throne giving their glories to God. And if that’s not enough for you, in this scene we have angels flying above head, some unspecified various creatures crawling around, and elders.
