The 24 elders first appear in Revelation 4 and are described as sitting around the throne in heaven. Their identity is not given directly but much can be learned by the clues provided. There are seven references in Revelation to this group and what they are doing Revelation 4:4 declares, Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. The book of Revelation nowhere specifically identifies who the twenty-four elders are. However, they are most likely representative of the Church The second clue about the 24 elders is that there were 24. This is significant in that there were 12 tribes of Israel and 12 Apostles. The connection is seen in Revelation 4:3-4 in the stones worn by the one (God) sitting on the throne: jasper, sardine, and emerald. These were stones that were worn along with nine others in the High Priest's. Revelation no. 1 (Simplified) Lion, Calf, Human Being, Eagle: these symbolize, respectively, what is noblest, strongest, wisest, and swiftest in creation. Calf: traditionally translated ox,. The Greek word refers to a heifer or young bull. These four creatures have been used as symbols of the evangelists Mark, Luke, Matthew, and John.
In Revelation 4, a door in heaven is opened, so that John can have a look at heaven. He sees a throne, and God sitting on the throne. And then also: Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clothed in white garments, with golden crowns on their heads (Revelation 4:4). Glory, honor and powe Revelation 4:6-11 KJV. (6) And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. (7) And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was. Notes page, Revelation 4, verses 2 to 6 r04b Note 4:2 The 24 elders had white robes and also golden crowns. The Greek word for crown here is stephanos which is a garland wreath as awarded to winners in the Greek games. I believe the elders are humans — the overcomers. These crowns of victory would be golden olive wreaths Revelation 7 and 14, who are the 24 elders in Revelation, are the whole of the portion of Israel. In witness theory, the 144,000 are the anointed saints, Jew and Gentile, and most Jehovah's Witnesses, who will be in Heaven. They introduce the 12 apostles, of course, and Bible (New Testament only) saints, and many others up to 1935

Throne room of God reflected in Human Anatomy. Surrounding God's throne are 24 elders who all bow down. The human body has 12 ribs on each side that each face downward. There are 4 living creatures surrounding the throne with eyes within and without. The heart has 4 chambers with holes within and without for the passage of blood The 24 elders probably represent the raptured church in heaven. Their seats or thrones show a reward of authority in the millennial kingdom (compare 20:4), and their crowns (Greek stephanos), are crowns of reward from the judgment seat of Christ (compare Rom. 14:10; 1 Cor. 3:12-15; 2 Cor. 5:10)
Like the 24 elders, the four living creatures worship God at his throne (Rev 4:6b-8a). The NIV places these creatures in the center, around the throne. This reflects the difficulty of the syntax of this line in Greek. It could mean they are simply in the immediate vicinity of the throne, near the throne Peep this : Rev 4.4, And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

The prophet describes a vision of a heavenly throne: before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal... round about... were four beasts full of eyes.. Notice John's description of Jesus in Revelation 5: Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the  elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes which are the seven spirits [the seven angels] of God sent out into all the earth One of the elders is telling John that this other group represents the saved. Third, we will read about the 24 elders holding the prayers of the saints in Revelation 5:8. This also shows that the 24 elders are not the same group as the saints of God. Fourth, we will read about the 24 elders acting as intermediaries and interpreters (5:5; 7:13-17) The 24 elders have gold crowns in Revelation 4:4 showing some type of authority. The rider on a white horse in Revelation 6:2 is given a crown, but it did not specify if it was gold or not. Here the Son of Man appears and has some measure of authority that He did not have before The 24 elders on thrones.

In Revelation 4, John saw a vision of God the Father sitting on His heavenly throne, with 24 elders surrounding the throne.

1 After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this. 2 At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. 3 And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian After the seventh trumpet, John heard the 24 elders worshipping God (Revelation 11:16-18).

Along with John, we find ourselves in the throne room of heaven - a place full of dazzling light, spectacular color, 24 elders, and those four interesting living creatures who sing God's praises day and night. John picks up imagery from the Old Testament - from Ezekiel and Isaiah - the visions they saw are a few steps closer to completion The entire book of revelation is a depiction of the Olympic Games and every role, including the Emperor, is there playing the part. John changes the roles from the emperor to Jesus and from the athletes to the followers of Jesus.

Another important contrast to consider at this point is that of Christ's return to earth and the Great White Throne Judgment: (1) It is separated in time from the last judgment by 1,000 years ( Rev. 19:11-21 compare with 20:1-8, 9, 11). (2) Its purpose and object is entirely different In Chapter 4 of Revelation, John paints a glorious picture of Heaven with the Throne of God surrounded by 24 other thrones. Around the throne were 4 living creatures who continually gave praise and thanks to God while the 24 elders on the thrones worshiped him

Rev. 5:  And they (the 24 elders) sang a new song: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because You were slain Revelation 3:21. In heaven, it seems there will be an expanding square formation around God's throne. First there is God Himself on His throne. Then the four creatures, then the 24 elders in a square around them with six on each side, then the 144,000 in a perfect square with 36,000 on each side, then the great multitude all around them 162 times as full numbers (i.e. 24 elders) Out of the 234 numbers used (excluding the 6 in Revelation 20), it seems to me that the vast majority of the numbers are to be interpreted in the way that numbers are normally interpreted; that is as expressing quantities.
