We are discussing the Book of Revelation in a Bible Buddies thread on this forum and I thought it worthwhile to note here how John describes the vision he has of God seated on His heavenly throne;

Rev 4:5  "from the throne came 'ashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder" (Holy Spirit)

Rev 5:1 "Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll" (Father)

Rev 7:17 "For the Lamb at the centre of the throne will be their shepherd" (Son)

Notice how the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are seated on the same throne and yet those gathered around worship him as one eternal, creator God;

Rev 4:8:

"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come"

Rev 4:10 "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."

and again in Rev 7:11 "All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying:

Amen!
Praise and glory
and wisdom and thanks and honor
and power and strength
be to our God for ever and ever.
Amen!
