  3. The Sealed Book

    Slide 3 - The Sealed Book

    • As this chapter begins, God is said to be holding a book. Now, this is not a book like you and I think of a book. It is actually a scroll. Paper was made in long sheets, and as it was written on, it would be rolled up. A portion would be written, and it would be rolled up and sealed. Another portion would be written and then that portion would be rolled up and sealed. This scroll God holds has seven seals on it. This is a mysterious scroll; let’s see if we can unravel the mystery of the scroll.)
  4. Who is Worthy to open the Book?

    Slide 4 - Who is Worthy to open the Book?

  5. The Search

    Slide 5 - The Search

    • The Requirements Of This Search – An angel asks the all important question, “Who is worthy to open the book?” The question is this: “Who is morally fit to read the text of this scroll and to carry out all that is necessary to redeem the earth?”
    • Notice that the angel did not say, “Who is willing to open the book?”
  6. The Reach of the Search

    Slide 6 - The Reach of the Search

    • A search is made throughout the universe for one man who is worthy to take the book and open it up. They searched Heaven above; Hell beneath and earth in between. They could find no one worthy to take the book!
    • There was no one in Heaven, Gabriel, and all the angelic host of Heaven were not worthy to take that book.
    • No one living on the earth, no king, no president, no ruler, no billionaire, no politician, no scientist, no preacher, no one was worthy to take the book.
    • No one under the earth, Abraham, Moses, Elijah, David, or Paul, found worthy no demon, no doomed sinner, not even old Satan himself, was worthy to take that book.
    • They searched high and low, but no man was found who was even worthy to look upon the book that rested in the hand of Almighty God!
  7. The Results of this search

    Slide 7 - The Results of this search

    • When the results of the search are made known, something happens in Heavenly vision that had probably never happened before or since: John burst into tears!
    • There are two words used for weeping in the New Testament. One is used in John 11:35, where the Bible says, “Jesus wept.” That word refers to “silent weeping”. Jesus stood there at the tomb of His friend and He wept in silence.
    • The other word is used when Jesus wept over Jerusalem, Luke 19:41. This word refers to “uncontrollable sobbing.” It is the kind of crying that a small child does when its little heart is broken. It is the kind of weeping you see when someone loses a loved one unexpectedly. It is open, unabashed weeping! It is the same word used of John’s weeping in this verse. John is in Heaven and he is weeping out loud because no one is worthy to open the book, or even to look upon it.
    • Why is John weeping? Because John knows what that book represents. He knew that only the one who has the ability to redeem the human race could open the book.
  8. Behold the Lion

    Slide 8 - Behold the Lion

    • John is weeping, but one of the elders comes to him and gives him some encouraging news. He tells John to wipe his eyes and stop his crying because, while no mere man is worthy, One has been discovered Who is! Let’s examine this worthy One together.
    • Notice the elder’s words, “Weep not, behold…” Then, he points John to Jesus! That is the message the church has been preaching for 2,000 years, “Weep not, behold…” Regardless of the problem, Jesus is the solution! Weep not, look to Jesus and He will meet the need! What a Savior!)
    • The elder tells John that “the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David hath prevailed…” When John hears the title “Lion of the tribe of Judah”, he immediately knows that the elder is referring to the Messiah. In Gen. 49:8-10, the Jews are promised that a great ruler will arise out of Judah. Like a lion, He will be powerful, strong, brave, majestic, and He will be a mighty conqueror. The Jews were looking for a Messiah Who would throw off the yoke of their oppressors and give them liberty. They were looking for a military leader to lead them to victory over their enemies.
  9. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

    Slide 9 - The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

  10. The Root of David

    Slide 10 - The Root of David

    • This person is also called “the Root of David”. This title reflects both the humanity and the deity of the Messiah Who was to come. He would raise up the withered branch of the line of David and bring it to power once again. That is the human side of the Messiah. But, He was also the “power behind the throne”. The Messiah was the Root out of which David sprang! So, He was a King and He was the King of Kings!
    • When Jesus came to this world, claiming to be the Messiah, He did not fulfill the expectations of the Jewish people. Instead of delivering the Jews from their bondage in a great military victory, and establishing the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, Jesus went around healing, preaching and performing miracles. As a result, the Jews rejected Him and their Messiah and crucified the “Lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Root of David”.
    • When John hears of Jesus in this Heavenly vision, He is described as a mighty Lion and as a King and as the King of Kings. John is told that this Lion has prevailed. So, Jesus is described as a Conquering Lion.
  11. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

    Slide 11 - The Lion of the Tribe of Judah

    • All believers know that the "Lion of the tribe of Juda" is our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. All believers know that Jesus Christ is the "Root of David" and is now reigning as King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
    • Of His Kingdom there shall be no end! All believers know why He was the only one found worthy to open this prophetic message of truth. Jesus has prevailed over Satan, Death and Hell through His supreme sacrifice as the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Yes! Christ is worthy! According to this Book of Revelation the 7th Sealed Scroll has been opened!
    • It is Jesus..who has redeemed us by His Precious Blood! It is Jesus...who has translated us from the kingdom of darkness! It is Jesus..who has made us Priests and Kings unto God! It is Jesus..who reveals this prophetic truth!
    • It is Jesus who gives every believer the power to "reign" over Sin, Satan and the World.
    • Jesus took the book from God on His Throne, with the thought of opening the book. How do you know? See Rev. 6:1 The Lamb open one of the seals.
    • As Jesus open this sealed book up, one seal at a time, what happen? The vision begins to unravel, and John wrote down what he saw.
  12. Revelation 5:6,7

    Slide 12 - Revelation 5:6,7

    •  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.
    • 7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
  13. The Lamb and what does this represent

    Slide 13 - The Lamb and what does this represent

  14. There stood a Lamb

    Slide 14 - There stood a Lamb

    • Jesus was the only one who could approach the one who did sit on the Throne and take the book from his right hand of power. There were other princes of the twelve tribes (each tribe had a prince with a ensign on it). Moses who was a prince of princes could not take the book out of the Father's hand. Aaron the High Priest, or Elijah the Prophet or any other Prophet, Priest or Prince could not take the book. Well one might say; What was the protocol?
    • Moses, the Prophet delivered the children of Israel from Egypt, and brought a nation to its needs and parted the Red Sea, but he was not worthy. Aaron the High Priest made a atonement every year for the sin of the nation, but he was not worthy. Elijah the Prophet who rode a flaming chariot to the door of heaven could not take the book, because he was not worthy.
    • these men knew the protocol but did not fit the bill. but the Lion of the tribe of Judah He has prevail to take the book and loose the seals because he was slain, and has redeemed us to God, by his blood out of every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, and has made unto us kings and priest to reign on this earth.
  15. The Passover lamb

    Slide 15 - The Passover lamb

    • Of course, this scene is wrapped up in Jewish symbolism also. With this image of the “little Lamb”, we are reminded of the Passover lamb. In Exodus 12, the people of Israel were instructed to select a perfect lamb, one without blemish and without spot. They were to take that lamb into their home and nourish it and care for it for a number of days. During that time, you know what happened, that little lamb became like a pet lamb to that family. Then, on the prescribed day, they were take that lamb, kill it, apply its blood to the doorposts of their home, roast its little body and eat it. When the people did this, they were promised that they would be spared when the Lord came to judge the Egyptians. Don’t you know that it broke the hearts of that little family to kill that pet lamb?
    • In that little dead lamb, the Israelites were given a power picture of what the Lord was going to do someday through the Redeemer He was going to send into the world. Just as that family would kill their pet lamb; God would judge His darling Son on Calvary’s cross. Oh, how it must have broken the Father’s heart to send His Son into a world filled with people who would hate Him, reject Him and crucify Him. How it must have broken the heart of the Father to judge the Son in the place of sinners!
  16. The Crucified Lamb

    Slide 16 - The Crucified Lamb

    • When John turns around to see this mighty, conquering Lion, he sees a “lamb as it had been slain.” The word “lamb” means “a little lamb; a pet lamb”. When John looked, he expected to see a great and powerful Lion; what he saw instead was a little, pet Lamb.
  17. He Has prevailed

    Slide 17 - He Has prevailed

    • But, it was on the cross that Heaven won the greatest victory of all time and eternity! We are told that the Lion-Lamb has “prevailed”. This word means “to carry off the victory”. Just because Jesus is a Lamb does not mean that He is weak! Jesus carried off the victory at every possible turn.
    • He carried off the victory on the Mount of Temptation, Matt. 4:1-11. (Satan thought Jesus would Fall!)
    • He carried off the victory in the Garden of Gethsemane, Matt. 26:38-44. (Satan thought Jesus would Fail!)
    • He carried off the victory on the cross, John 19:30. (Satan thought Jesus was a Fool!)
    • He carried off the victory when He rose from the dead, Matt. 28:1-8! (Satan thought Jesus was Finished!)
    • Satan thought he had defeated Jesus when Jesus died on the cross. Hell must have celebrated as the broken, bleeding, body of Jesus was removed from that cross and placed in that borrowed tomb. For three days, the demons and devils of Hell must have cavorted in glee as they celebrated what they thought was Satan’s victory over the Lord Jesus Christ.
  18. The Symbolic Lamb

    Slide 18 - The Symbolic Lamb

  19. What is a horn a symbol of?

    Slide 19 - What is a horn a symbol of?

    • A horn is a symbol of a reigning power, either spiritual or temporal. In the natural world animals uses their horns to fight with. It is a symbol of authority to do battle. They also was use as vessels of oil to anoint kings, who were to reign in power. Jesus is the horn of Salvation. Lu. 1:67-69,74,75 over sin.
    • The seven horns represent the power, authority, and rule he possessed. Matthew 28:18-20. He is the head of the church and King of the kingdom.
  20. What did the Seven eyes represent?

    Slide 20 - What did the Seven eyes represent?

    • The seven eyes represented His knowledge and complete understanding of all things. Jesus is omniscience, that is all knowing. He is the wisdom of God. His eye pierced down through the ages. Hebrews 4:12-16
    • The Seven eyes (with eyes we see) present also the seven Spirits of God. Matthew 5:8, Eph. 1:17,18. Seven is a number of completeness. Jesus had 7 eyes or complete understanding of the things of God. See Isaiah 11:1, 2.
  21. The Seven Spirits of God

    Slide 21 - The Seven Spirits of God

    • Read Isaiah 11:1, 2 the word Spirit is in uppercase denoting that this is speaking of the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit.
    • These are the seven manifestation of the Spirit;
    • The Spirit of the Lord
    • The Spirit of Wisdom
    • The Spirit of Understanding
    • The Spirit of Counsel
    • The Spirit of Might
    • The Spirit of Knowledge
    • The Spirit of Fear
    • These seven Spirit represent the fullness of God’s
    • The Church went through various different circumstances down through the gospel day for each battle, each conflict, each situation she “The Church” needed power, vision and understanding to be effective.
  22. Revelation 5:8-14

    Slide 23 - Revelation 5:8-14

    •  And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
    • 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
    • 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
    • 11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
    • 12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
    • 13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
    • 14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
  23. Worshipping the Lamb

    Slide 24 - Worshipping the Lamb

    • The four Beast (The Four Living Creatures), The twenty and four elders acknowledge his complete authority by falling to their knees before the Lamb
    • having everyone of them harps. They were not playing their own song, but his song. They were not strumming their own tune, but his tune. They were completely surrendered to his will. The golden vial of odors were offered by all that was in this worship scene, as a sweet smelling savor before the Father.
    • Then they began to sing a new song, not the old song of deliverance which Moses and the children of Israel sang. Because it was only temporary deliverance. They song a new song of redemption because their salvation was perfected, because Jesus was that perfect sacrifice..

    • This was one of the greatest and grandest worship service of all times and all eternity. They were having church.
    • The Angels joined the chorus, the four beast joined the chorus along with the twenty four elders, then 10,000 x 10,000 and thousands or thousands saying with a loud voice saying,

    • And the four best said, Amen. And the Four and Twenty Elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth forever and ever.
    • And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth on upon the Throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever
    • And the four best said, Amen. And the Four and Twenty Elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth forever and ever.
  30. Slide 31

    • In the midst of the throne (The Church)
    • Stood a Lamb – (Jesus Christ) Jesus was there all the time vs. 4:6
    • This speaks of the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, The Lamb of God (John 1:29). It was a lamb stood as it had been slain.
    • He stood in Garden after the resurrection
    • He stood on the Road of Emmaus
    • He stood in the Midst.
    • He stood as proof that He alone had the Keys of Hell and Death. He stood triumphantly because He alone has prevailed to open the book. He was a warrior of rightousness, He got the victory over death. He defeated death. he went into the stronghold of death and broke the back of the enemy.
  31. The Work of Redemption

    Slide 32 - The Work of Redemption

    • This is a work of redemption. Redemption is something we talk about a lot. It is an important truth. Understanding redemption is vital to understanding God’s great plan for the ages. Everything He does and has ever done is related to His redemptive work.
    • To understand redemption, we need to look back to Old Testament times. In that time period, three things could be redeemed.
  32. To be redeemed

    Slide 33 - To be redeemed

    • 1. A Slave could be redeemed – If a master lost a servant, he could pay a redemption price and buy that servant back. (Ill. That is what Jesus did when He came to die on the cross for us, Rev. 5:9; Gal. 4:5; 1 Pet. 1:18-19. We have been “bought with a price”, 1 Cor. 6:19-20.)
    • 2. A Wife could be redeemed – If a woman was left as a widow with no male children, a close kinsman of her dead husband could redeem her, and her husbands inheritance, by paying a redemption price. This is seen in the book of Ruth, when Boaz paid the price to redeem Ruth and her dead husband’s inheritance. (Ill. Jesus died on the cross to redeem a Bride unto Himself, Eph. 5:25-27.)
    • 3. Land could be redeemed – If a man lost the land he had been given as an inheritance, he could buy his property back by paying a redemption price.
    • This truth is demonstrated in Jeremiah 32. Jeremiah’s uncle had lost a piece of property. Jeremiah’s cousin comes to him when he is in prison and he asks Jeremiah to buy back the property, v. 8. Jeremiah does this and records the transaction on a scroll and seals it up, v. 10.
    • From what I have read, they would record the information related to the redemption on both sides of a scroll. On the inside they would write the reason the land was forfeited. On the outside they would write the terms of the redemption.
    • Apparently, they kept two copies of this transaction; one was open to the public for all to read and another copy was kept sealed up, v. 10-11. These scrolls were laid up in the Temple, in earthen jars for safekeeping, v. 14. Jeremiah serves the function of a kinsman redeemer for the property that belonged to his uncle. (Ill. What we are witnessing in Rev. 5 is the heavenly version of what men did in Old Testament times. If you will notice, the book God holds is written on both sides. It is written up and sealed just like a deed.
    • When Jesus died on the cross, He did not just die for us, He also died for a ruined creation, Rom. 8:22-23.)
  33. Summary

    Slide 34 - Summary

    • The Character Of This Scroll – As we read these verses, the character of this scroll becomes clear.
    • First, it has something to do with “Jesus Christ”, v. 2-4.
    • The Search for a Redeemer, one who could open the book of seals, and look thereon.
    • Second, it has something to do with things concerning the church on the “earth”. In Revelation 6, the seals of this scroll began to be opened and the contents of the scroll are read. When they are, they reveal what will be happening on the earth during the Church age. This is not about the coming future but the future from the start of the vision.
    • 1st Seal (White Horse) – The Church at War
    • 2nd Seal (Red Horse) – The Church under persecution
    • 3rd Seal (Black Horse) – The Church faces Famine
    • 4th Seal (Pale Horse) – The Church faces Spiritual Death
    • 5th Seal (Souls under the Altar) – The Church faces the Martyrs of her children)
    • 6th Seal (The Great Awakening) – The Church receives a great awakening
    • 7th Seal (The Silence in Heaven) – The Church shows its High Priest in the Temple
    • Third, it seems that this scroll has something to do with “redemption”.
    • When Jesus takes this scroll, He is praised for His redemptive work, Rev. 5:9-10.
