December 28 ~ The Heavenly Throne Room
Story @ Revelation Chapters 4 & 5
The door wide open stands to a far off better land in this resplendent oil painting, “Symphony in White no.3.”  In association with the feminine side, we transition from Earth to the heavenly throne room with more bewildering symbolism. Here in the throne room is a seven sealed scroll and a throne large enough for two or more, evermore the same as when Whistler first painted it in 1865. I find it interesting that he manipulated both the height and length of the couch for his composition. If the One on the couch were not leaned over sitting, in this painting she would not be fitting. I interpret this to mean – he/she is ßIG, he/she is even bigger than his creativity. Couches are more comfortable than crosses. “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!” (Rev 5:13) This concludes the euphoric experience that awaits us.
