Revelation 4:1 The Passion Translation (TPT)

John’s Vision of the Throne Room

Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a heavenly portal open before me,[a] and the same trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning[b] broke the silence and said, “Ascend into this realm![c] I want to reveal to you what must happen[d] after this.


  1. Revelation 4:1 Or “Behold! I saw a door in the heavenly realm that had been opened.”
  2. Revelation 4:1 See Rev. 1:10.
  3. Revelation 4:1 John did not simply watch these things happen through an open door, he was taken through the open door into the heavenly realm. In 3:20 Jesus stood knocking on a closed door; now John passes through an open door.
  4. Revelation 4:1 Or “come to be” as in “give birth.” The Greek word for “happen” is ginomai (similar to our English word genome) and is translated three times in Rom. 7:3-4 as “married.”
