Who Are 24 Elders In Heaven According To Bible? by Spectators: 7:20am On Feb 18
According to the Bible, elders in heaven hold a significant role and are mentioned in several passages throughout the book of Revelation. These elders are described as sitting on thrones and are presented as representatives of the redeemed and glorified saints in the presence of God.

The first mention of these elders is found in Revelation 4:4, where John describes seeing twenty-four elders seated around the throne of God. They are clothed in white garments, wearing golden crowns on their heads. This imagery signifies their purity, victory, and authority as they worship and serve God.

The role of the elders in heaven is primarily focused on their worship and adoration of God. In Revelation 4:10-11, the elders cast their crowns before the throne, acknowledging God's ultimate worthiness and sovereignty. They continuously praise and glorify God, saying, "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being" (Revelation 4:11, NIV).

In Revelation 5, the elders are shown to have a significant role in the unfolding of God's plan for salvation. When a scroll sealed with seven seals cannot be opened by anyone, John weeps, but one of the elders reassures him by saying, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals" (Revelation 5:5, NIV). This elder acknowledges Jesus Christ as the only one worthy to open the seals, initiating the future events of Revelation.

Additionally, the elders are seen participating in worship and offering prayers on behalf of the saints. In Revelation 5:8, they hold golden bowls filled with incense, which represent the prayers of God's people. These prayers are presented before God as a sweet aroma. This signifies the intercessory role that the elders play, representing the redeemed believers and their heartfelt petitions.

While the specific identities of these elders are not explicitly revealed in the Bible, it is believed that they represent the redeemed believers from both the Old and New Testaments. The mention of the number twenty-four may be associated with the twelve tribes of Israel and the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ, signifying the unity of God's people across time.

In conclusion, the elders in heaven, as described in the Bible, are a group of individuals presenting themselves before the throne of God, clothed in white garments and wearing golden crowns. They offer worship, adoration, and intercessory prayers on behalf of the redeemed believers. Though their specific identities are not revealed, they symbolize the union of God's people from both the Old and New Testaments. The role of the elders highlights the eternal worship and honor that is bestowed upon God in heaven.

The idea of heaven is so stupid I wonder how people believe it lol
The Bible doesn't say much about what heaven is supposed to be like. Most of the claims about heaven are exaggerations of the Bible. The Bible says the Gates are made of pearl. What are the gates for? Are they made just as an excuse to irritate clams? Are the gates supposed to keep someone out or to keep souls from escaping?

it also says the streets are paved with gold but the only reason we actually like gold so much and we attach such values to it is because they are rare and difficult to extract. Gold is malleable and can be formed as needed for use in, among others, electronics, dentistry, medical tools, and the defense, aerospace, and automotive industries. Gold is durable and noncorrosive. However gold shouldn't be valuable at all in heaven unless we'd still need to use gold for those things in heaven too which actually makes heaven just another version of earth

The sales pitch for heaven is that there is only happiness and no sorrow. But it also says that many people's loved ones won't be there. Since they can't feel sorrow about that, are they ecstatic that their loved ones are being tortured forever? Either your memories are removed or your human empathy is removed. Is it really you that is left over once some parts of you have been removed?

If life matters to me now, it will always have mattered to me, even when I am gone. Death cannot change that.

Your best hope is to be locked in a gold cage with your memories of having an actual life being erased just so you can kiss ass for eternity.

Life is pleasant, death is serene. The transition might be troublesome but we all have to go through it. You shouldn't fear death so much. Heaven and hell are imaginary. You should reject the indoctrination. Life is much better that way.

To quote a friend: "Heaven's supposed to be this really great place, right? So how come a third of the angels got pissed off??"

The Elders are the wise council who advise god and deliberate on heavenly and earthly matters of utmost importance.
You know, just like the elders in movies who surround the king/emperor.

If they do not advise god, God will make a mistake and his rulership will be messed up.

Hehehe...look at how I am able to concoct a story that fits into the picture. I should start a church... undecided or better still, my own religion.
After all, everything is a fairytale.

The book of Revelation is about the seven churches in Jerusalem the elders there are not in heaven. The book is full of symbols – the vision of John to the seven churches, it's never literal 😂😆

These are the authorities; their decision affect all the creations of Ahavah (God), Shafat leads them.

The 24 Elders are the only beings with free will that are under no law. Ahavah made them in the way that naturally they will humble themselves before him.

They were the first living created-creatures/intelligence having a human-like appearance, and they are all males; none of them looks like a woman. In their natural state, their skin are pure-white (like a snow) and have no glowing effect.

However, unlike other creatures of Ahavah, the 24 Elders have no wings or any form of beastly nature. They only have one natural appearance; which is the one they were created and they live at Meltsar;
Members of the 24 Elders are:
Shafat is the leader of The 24 Elders
AMAN, AMATS, ANAH (Bald Headed), BERAKAH, CHEN, CHESED, EMUNAH, GADOL (He is second tallest Elder after Yakach), GEBURAH, HADAR, HUPOMONE, KOACH (He is fat, hefty and strong), OSHER, QARA, SHALOM, SIMCHAH, TAHOR, TIPHARAH (He is the most handsome Elder), TIQVAH, TSALACH, TUB, YAKACH ( He is the tallest Elder), YASHAR.

AHAVAH (to all the Elders) I have in you my wisdom, intelligence, and power. You shall have the right to discuss and have meetings with or without my knowledge; moreover, you shall glorify me forever.
Look around yourselves; I place you on wealth, authority, power and all my Kingdoms. (smiles) Boqer is the only star dwelling in Shamayim, I love Boqer and I have kept the POWER OF ORDER with her. Power of Order belongs to me.

You must not touch it, for whoever takes it shall die and perish in Yam-Esh Forever. (smiles) Nevertheless, I know you will never turn against me because I AM LOVE, and peace I give to you. Your praises shall ascend to me forever and you shall govern my cities.

ALL THE ELDERS (off their crowns and fall their faces to the ground. Their garments become whiter as snow and glow. They say in unison) Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created. Ahavah then smiles. Shafat tries to raise his right hand and his hand shakes, that he is not able to lift it.

SHAFAT (shaky voice) Holy Father; The Living One, Blessed is your name forever! Please forgive us, for we are troubled at the strength of your presence, if only you can make us survive without trembling in your presence, we shall live, else we perish in your sight. Ahavah closes his eyes and slightly faces down nodding his head, and the screen before him closes.

Then the bright light that was above the Elders goes off. The sky changes back to a big hall in Meltsar. {INT. HALL, MELTSAR} A big triangular table appears before the Elders, they pants while on the ground.

After a while, the Elders begin to stand-up one after the other, wear their crowns and sit on their chairs around the table before them. Their natural skins are as white as snow (pure white powder-like) without having a glowing effect.

In every gathering of Animals, People or Spirit

Thre must be a leader, immediate subordinates (caucus/cabal) & others.


So, 24 elders are immediate subordinates that are working directly with almighty God.

To end this with a 'lol' clearly shows that you're not asking to learn but to ridicule what is beyond you. So, the only response you deserve is to be reminded that this has been the behavior of FOOLS since time immemorial. Instead of them to humble themselves and learn, they are FULL of themselves. And, I think there must be an etymological connection between 'FULL' and 'FOOL'.

Why do you think you know too much? Why, you can't even explain 0.0000001% of your own little body. But you think you have the right to ridicule the faith of millions of people across the world, many of them having far better lives than you can ever dream of.

Have you eaten today? Because those who believe in him now are in real poverty and hunger. Jesus loves them but they were killed by Fulani bandits every day. Jesus loves them and they are suffering and languishing in poverty. Which kind of love is that?
