day no. 13,241: John was able to see Jesus as Isaiah once saw Him‏

Revelation 4:2
Immediately I was in the Spirit, and a throne was set there in heaven. One was seated on the throne

John here sees something that Isaiah once saw hundreds of years earlier, yet reported very similarly.

Isaiah 6:1
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a high and lofty throne, and His robe filled the temple.

Isaiah saw the Lord sitting on His throne.

Isaiah 6:10
Dull the minds of these people;
deafen their ears and blind their eyes;
otherwise they might see with their eyes
and hear with their ears,
understand with their minds,
turn back, and be healed.

This is what Isaiah heard Him say then.

John 12:40-41
He has blinded their eyes
and hardened their hearts,
so that they would not see with their eyes
or understand with their hearts,
and be converted,
and I would heal them.

41 Isaiah said these things because he saw His glory and spoke about Him.
The same was true of those in John's day.
John reports here in His Gospel that Isaiah saw Jesus all those years ago.
John himself, later while writing the book of Revelation referenced earlier, was granted eyes to see what Isaiah once saw: Jesus on the throne.
The Bible is awesome.
