Many people living today have had the privilege of seeing into Heaven just as many of the Saints in the Bible did. I have been sharing testimonies from some of these people regarding what they have seen and experienced.
Another of my favorite authors is Anna Rountree. She is a current voice who has experienced powerful prophetic encounters, many of which took place in Heavenly realms. Here is a description of the throne room of God from her book Heaven Awaits the Bride.
“The throne room was brilliant with light. The surface on which the redeemed were dancing was a pavement of light that looked like a translucent blue. [On] this expansive “sea” was a dazzling white light, in the center of which was the throne of God.
A great yearning welled up within me and a whisper involuntarily escaped: “Daddy.” His presence drew me with cords of love. (The angel with me) looked down at me and smiled.
The Father’s being is manifested by light of an indescribable whiteness. His uncreated glory radiates outward in all directions to form a great sphere of awesome colors. Like a bow whose hues blend from white to yellow, to gold, to the Shekinah reddish-gold, and on through the color spectrum of reds, purples, blues and ending with green.
Transfixed, I was lost in the wonder of Him. The angel touched my shoulder and said, ‘Come with me’. We began to pass through those worshipping, sometimes ducking beneath a dancer’s arm as we made our way toward the throne area.
The light into which we were entering began to intensify, as well as the sense of power. As we moved nearer to the throne, the radiance looked more like the waves of light in the aurora borealis when it forms an arc of lights across the sky. The blazing light was not blinding as would be the earth’s sun if you gazed at it. One could experience, feel and even look at this light.
Thousands of angels were circling above the throne area and thousands more seemed to be arriving to join them. Countless numbers of angels were already within the bow of the corona around the throne. They were making musical sounds by flying at different levels and speeds and patterns. The tones that their flight made were different from singing or the playing of instruments. At times some would fly together, producing a different tone.
The melodies, like the light in the throne room , went right through me. The music of praise entered me and passed through me and I became one with the sound. The angel spoke to me. “The harmony, the unity and the desire of those here to give to the Father His due – constantly giving of themselves and receiving more of Him when they praise and adore – bring forth a sweet music.”
I became more aware of the pleasant fragrance around the throne area and of the interwovennes of sound and color and smell. These cannot be woven together on earth the way they are blended here in Heaven. We below can experience them simultaneously, but above they seem to have the same properties. It is more like water being poured into water. So it is here with sound, light and fragrance. It seems strange to see sound, hear color, and for smell to have a tangible quality to it. Yet in heaven it all seems natural and right and even obvious.”
The One on the throne is the center of it all. Everything proceeds from Him. He holds it all together. And everything returns to Him who alone is worthy.
