Revelation Chapter 5

John is in heaven standing in the throne room and he sees Christ sitting on the throne with a book is his hand that has seven seals. A really strong angels says who is worthy to open the book and to break the seals? John states that he cried because no man was found worthy to open the book let alone look at it. This is mentioned in Revelation 5:1-4 and it states: 1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. But on e of the elders tells John, don’t cry and look the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Jesus) the Root of David has prevailed and opened the book and the seals. This is mentioned in Revelation 5:5 which states: And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. We know that it is Christ who opened the book and the seals because of the very next verse Revelation 5:6 which states: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. The slain lamb of course was Jesus Christ because he paid for our transgressions with His blood. Keeping mind that this is a vision that John the Revelator is seeing. The rest of this chapter is giving praise to Jesus Christ and John is letting us know that Jesus Christ is the one that loosed the seals and He is the One true God as He is the one the sits on the throne, and it was Him who gave His life so that we all may live. I will writing about Revelation Chapter 6 which is one of the most exciting chapters in Revelation. I hope you stay tuned for that, and as always you can follow me on twitter:
