Revelation 19:4-5 (KJV) A Voice From the Throne

Revelation 19:4-5 (KJV)
And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
God sat on the throne and a voice came out of the throne.
A natural interpretation would tell us that an inanimate throne did not speak. Either this means:
  • It seemed to come from the throne but came in reality from nearby the throne or else
  • The throne is not a physical structure but a living type. 
I want to meditate upon the latter a moment. Could the throne upon which God sits be symbolic of those over which He reigns?
  • The throne speaks in plural (our God)
  • The throne claims possession of God and
  • The throne urges praise upon others within and without itself. 
God needs no rest as men do; yet He rested on the seventh day. God needs nowhere to sit; yet He possesses a throne. God needs no one to rule; yet He is sovereign over heaven and earth.
