“After this, I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up here, and I will show you things which must be hereafter.” Revelation 4:1
“After this, I looked.” The result of John’s response to the manifestation of the presence of the Lord was an opening into the realm of the Spirit – “a voice… as a trumpet talking with me.” This “voice as a trumpet” is a call to action, and speaks of spiritual direction and authority. Notice that the door opened, when John looked.
For those who are responding as John responded, there is an empowering that has to do with “dominion” that is being imparted at this present time. When this verse was quickened to me, I began asking the Lord to “show me things which must be hereafter.” This prayer is being answered.
