And from the throne proceeded lightning, thunderings, and voices.

                         (Revelation 4:5)

Every family has relatives who can change everything simply by their presence. These persons are so respected that regardless of what is happening, their very attendance will change the party atmosphere, including the drinks, music, language, and attire. Everything is on hold until that person leaves the party. Likewise, God is so holy that all human activity must cease for a moment to give Him reverence and veneration. Because He is the holy Lord of all, we should be cautious when we come into His presence.
