"In Revelation 4:9-11, the song of the “elders” in praise to God provides a proper climax to the whole scene. In fact, the language is not just liturgical, but political, reflecting the terminology of a Roman court ceremony: “worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory, honour, and power.” Why? God “created all things,” and they came “into existence.” In other words, our very existence is “because of your will.” Thus, behind creation is divine providence. His “will” is the foundation for why our creation exists. In Hebrews 11:3, Paul writes: “by faith we understand that time was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible.”

Theodoret [5th century Bishop of Cyr] reflects on this and writes: “The body’s eye did not recognize the God of all as creator; instead faith instructed us that God, who has always existed, created what did not exist. There is, after all, no example of this among human beings; yet though learning nothing of the kind from nature, we have in faith a teacher of the unexpected. Human beings, of course, make something out of something, whereas the God of all produced what exists out of nothing..." from the article: Our Universe Was Created To Reveal God
