 The Throne of God

Someone asked me if I had considered drawing the throne of God, and I replied, that no one I thought had seen the face of God.  He prayed that I could have dreams and visions and a word from the Lord and draw it.  If you read Revelation 4, as always it is all right there.  Bear with me!
Revelation 4:2  And immediately I was in the spirit:  and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
Revelation 4:3
And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone:  and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. 
Revelation 4:5
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices:  and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Revelation 4:6
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: 

So it was all there. There was someone sitting on a throne.  I put that.  He was as to jasper (red, yellow and blue stone with some black or white marks) and sardine stone, which is red.   God is so great! because all of the colors known to man are made from these colors!  He is a colorful God!  And I love colors!  I put blue feet, because when Moses came off the mountain, it was like blue tiles under his feet.  (Gospel of peace!)  Then the emerald rainbow round about the throne.  I couldn't put the thunder or the seven lamps of fire burning before the throne because they wouldn't have fit on my paper, but they were there as the Bible says .  I put hair white as wool which sometimes is the description and jasper can be white.  Does God look like this?  There are other descriptions in other parts of the Bible.  This is my rendition according to Revelation 4,  I have not seen God. 
Now the answer to the prayer that the man made for me.  I did have a vision.  About a month later, I got up in the night and looked out my big bedroom window as God had blessed me with a new house and about a half acre on a hill.  It was all dirt at the time as I had only lived there a while.  Out of the night sky dropped a huge big dipper right in front of me as big as my backyard.  Around the dipper were about 7 or more dancing stars.  Then I fell back on my bed and fell asleep.  I was in shock for some time about that.  My interpretation was a reminder that Jesus is the big dipper because He is the living water and we are the little dipper as he fills our cup and our cup runneth over.  And of course I believe that the North Star holds the two dippers together.  The stars were happy and somewhere in the Bible I think that there are dancing stars.  Remember this as you look into the night skies.  Don't believe those other stories about the dippers!
Also that same year as I looked out my window in the night in the rain,  the rocks shined like gold with the street lights.  That never happened again.  Maybe God tried  to remind me "Buy from me,  gold tried in the fire"  We have nothing God wants as far we can use for exchange, but our lives that go through our trials like gold tried in the fire!
Here is a song that I wrote 20 years ago:

THERE IS A RAINBOW AROUND THE THRONE OF                                    GOD 

There is a rainbow around the Throne of God.
And it glows like an emerald rich with His love.
He longs to share it and take us there above.
There is a rainbow around the Throne of God.

Bursts of light flash from our loving God,
as if from a glittering diamond or a shining ruby up above.
Come feel the power and might of this great love.
Bursts of light flash from our loving God. 

Lightning and thunder issue from the Throne of God.
There are voices in that thunder from above.
And all around praises given to the King so full of love.
Lightning and thunder issue from the Throne of God.

There is glory around so great a God.
Oh!  the glory of it, this scene way up above.
Ever present and showing us His faithful love.
There is glory around so great a God!  
So great a God!
I can't sing, so I can't make it into a song, although I kind of hear it in my head.  This song was made from Revelation 4:1-4
Revelation 4:4
And round about the throne were four and twenty seats;
and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment;  and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
Revelation 4:10
The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Revelation 4:11
Thou art worthy, Oh Lord, to receive glory and honor and power:  for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were  created.

Revelation 4:6  and in the midst of the throne, 

and round about the throne,
were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
Revelation 4:7 And the first beast was like a lion,
And the second beast
like a calf,
and the third beast had a face as a man

Revelation 4:8  And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him:

and they were full of eyes within

and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Revelation 4:7 and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
This is my rendition of Revelation 4:6-9
Revelation 5:1
And I saw in the right hand of Him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside,  sealed with seven seals.
Revelation 5:2
And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Revelation 5:3
And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
Revelation 5:4 
And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and read the book and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Revelation 5:5
And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not:
behold , the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of
David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Revelation 5:6
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the mist of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the Earth.  
The lamb had 7 eyes and 7 horns.  God, our Creator has been very symmetrical in his creations, so with 7 eyes,  I put one eye in the middle.  This is not the all seeing eye of the mason's or the illuminate.  This is someone just trying to depict what is said in the Bible.
This next is the start of my whole mission to draw the Bible.  I drew  it in 1972 or 1973 for my show for my masters degree in drawing and silk screen.  I had to reframe it and forgot to show date and signature.  I said Lord, "I think you were naked on the cross and if you were, then let me draw this, and let it be good".  I was discouraged and took it up to my professor who may have been a non believer, and he said that this is good art and now you are on the right track.  Within a few months my show was ready to put up.  I only showed you half of the drawing.
This is the lamb that was slain,  The Lord Jesus Christ, the only son of the Almighty God.  
Philippians 2:6 
Who being in the form of God,  thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Philippians 2:7
But made himself of no reputation,  and took upon him the form of a servant,  and was made in the likeness of men:
Philippians 2:8
And being found in fashion as a man,  he humbled himself,  and became obedient unto death,  even the death of the cross. 
Every sin that has happened on this Earth was put on the Innocent One as He was separated from the Father.  The separation from the Father was the worst.  If you are separated from the Father, say Father, forgive me of my sins as I am now accepting Jesus' gift of salvation.  Please help me in my endeavor to follow you.  Help me read about how you gave us this amazing gift by reading the New Testament of the Bible. Thank you for this day as I have become a child of the Living God!
Throughout the Bible there are shepherds and sheep.  The meat of the sheep kept the people alive.  The shepherd may have nursed a lamb since birth if the mother died.  The sheep knew the shepherd's voice I am sure.  In the life of a sheep, the time would come when the sheep would be sacrificed to keep the shepherd and the shepherd's family alive.  This drawing depicts that time that may have been agony for the shepherd.  This being also perhaps the agony of the Almighty God when The Lamb of God had to pay for our sins.
