In Rev. Chapter 4 John sees a throne Set in heaven, and one Sat on the throne. I believe this throne to be the 'Great Clock' or 'The Precession of the Equinoxes'. Rev. 4:3 says: "And he that Sat was to look upon like a jasper and a Sardine Stone (this is possibly the star "Vega' that sits at the red section of the spectrum/rainbow/color wheel): and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in Sight like an emerald (the green happens during our time and was prevalent during Jesus' and John's time!). So if we apply a color wheel to this 'Clock' and Start at 'Thuban' or blue, then next would come blue-green or teal, then green, then yellow-green or lime, then yellow, then yellow-orange or gold, then orange, then orange-red (O-range,our-head), then red (our-head), then red-violet, then violet, then blue-violet, and finally back to blue.
Rev.4:4 says: "And round about the throne were four and twenty Seats(Sections of the 'Clock'): and upon the Seats I(John) Saw four and twenty elders Sitting(24 time periods of @1,080 years each), clothed in white raiment(on white paper-drawn with a bow/protractor and a compass); and had on their heads Crowns(See-rowns) of gold('G'-old)."
Rev. 4:6 says: "And before the throne there was a Sea of glass like unto crystal(as a telescope): and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four Beasts full of eyes(stars) before and behind." I believe these 4 Beasts are actually Quadrants of time periods of stars continuing around Clockwise-on paper(counter-Clockwise if looking up to the heavens), with the Beast as a 'Lion'('L'-'i'-on) or ('L'-'eye'-on) as the first 'eye' position; then the next Beast like a 'calf'(See-half) as 1/2 (this includes the nose and mouth position of the face). The third Beast had the 'face as a man' and this time period includes the second 'eye' quadrant position of the 'face'. This includes the 'd' Quadrant/Beast. The fourth Beast was like an 'eagle flying'(as one who sees all or when flying above the earth and also symbolizes a man's mind). This time goes from @3,890 A.D. until @10,370 A.D. Rev. 4:8 says: "And the four Beasts had each of them six wings(of @1,080 years each) about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, Saying, "HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, WHICH WAS, AND IS, AND IS TO COME." Rev. 4:9 "And when those Beasts give Glory and Honour and Thanks to him that Sat on the throne ('Father time' or 'eternity') who liveth for ever and ever, the four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns(See-rowns) before the throne, saying, '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'.
