More than I can imagine

Revelation 4:8-11 (NIV)

Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come."

Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

"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."

I am afraid we don't understand much about the awesome appearance of the Glory of God. Nor do we really have a great idea of what worship is. Praise is continuous in heaven. Point is, if you are bored with worship down here, then why do you want to go to heaven? The magnificent, infinite creator God, who is Jesus Christ, made everything we enjoy down here. Whatever we do in heaven, don't you think that it will be like...well, heaven?

I can't get my mind off the idea that I have really no concept to imagine leaven. It's like trying to wrap your mind around what an eleven dimensional universe looks like, but that would only be a beginning point. How could we possibly understand what God really looks like? Ezekiel had a very strange vision at the beginning of his book. So here in this chapter of Revelation, John has a strange vision. But it is one just barely envision with our limited senses.
