Book of Revelation: Chapter 5 The Lion--Lamb Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with

seven seals. The Scroll Revelation 5:2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?

The Question Revelation 5:3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it. No One to Open

Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals? God Holds the Sealed Book Scrollsheets of papyrus joined edge-to-edge (rolled) Written inside and on the back no blank spaces full on both sides.

Sealed up only here closely sealedcompletely sealed Seven sealsperfection. The individual seals will reveal each section of the whole, which is the destiny of the church. Proclamation of the Strong Angel Strong angel has nothing to do with the opening of the book (10:1; 18:21). Who is worthygood enough or qualified:

To open the book To break the seals Meaning to open the book by breaking the seals. No one was ablenot the strong angel with the challenge, or those who heard it. Revelation 5:4 So I wept much,

because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. John Weeping John Weeps John begins to weep, but no one can open the book or break its seals.

None in heaven (angelic) None on the earth (man) None under the earth (departed spirits) Would he not get to see that which he was promised back in 4:1? I will show you things which MUST take place after this. Revelation 5:5

But one of the elders said to me, Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals. The Lion of Judah

Revelation 5:6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

Lamb Slain Revelation 7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne. Takes the Scroll!

Comfort for John Comfort for JohnChrist has overcome; He is worthy to open the books and the seals! Conquering Christ. The elder--not the angel--offers comfort. John turns to see a lion, but he sees a Lamb standing, as if slain. (John 1:29) Located in the center of all the beings named, for He is the center (focal point) of the vision, ready for

action. The Lion Lion (Genesis 49:8-12) Hand on neck of enemies Brethren bow down Scepter (authority and power) Lawgiver Obedience of the people Teeth whiter than milk (1 Peter 2:22)

The Lion--Lamb The Root of David (2 Samuel 7:12-14) The source of David Root and offspring of David (22:16) Tied to David (Matthew 22:41-46) Mentioned on Pentecost (Acts 2:29-36) Shoot (or stock) out of Jessie (Isaiah 11:1,2) Lamb Slain

John beheld the Lamb (John 1:29) Seven horns (horn=power) (Deuteronomy 33:17; 1 Samuel 2:10) Seven horns=complete power Seven eyes identified as the seven spirits of God (Probably the Holy Spirit) Sent into all the worldwith the gospel (Matthew 28:19,20; Mark 16:15; Colossians 1:23) Lamb Takes the Scroll

Lamb approached the Father. Two distinct persons! Only Jesus was able to approach and take the scroll (1 Timothy 2:5,6). Pictured in prophecy Psalm 110:1,2 Daniel 7:13,14 He overcame (3:21; Hebrews 1:2-6)

Revelation 5:8 Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. Living Creatures Fall Down

Revelation 5:9 And they sang a new song, saying: You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

The New Song! Revelation 5:10 And have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth. Kings and Priests

Commendation Song Four living creatures and the 24 elders fall down before the Lamb. Worship, praise and adoration! Harps and golden bowls The harp is for praise. Golden bowls are the saints prayers; they were despised on earth but precious in heaven. Sing a NEW song.

Only God is to be worshipped (22:8,9). New Song Sing a new song Worthy is the LambHis worthiness Speaks of mans redemption Purchased people with His blood (1:5) They were redeemed by His blood (1 Peter 1:1820) Every tribe, tongue, nation or people!

Emphasis is on the His worthinesswhat He has done! Kings and Priests Made people to be: A kingdomHe made them a kingdom (1:9; Colossians 1:13,14) Priests to our God (1 Peter 2:5,9; Hebrews13:15) Reign upon the earthpresently, they reign as a kingdom of priests who are fellow heirs with Christ

(Romans 8:17). The saints prayers affect the world (8:3-5). Prophecy fulfilled (Zechariah 6:12,13) Hebrews 8:1,2; Romans 5:17 Kings and Priests Not a reign during a millennial period to come; if anything, it includes a rule now, and for sure a rule after death. 5:10they will reign (those purchased)

11:15He will reign (now reigning) 20:4they came to life and reigned with Christ (NOW) 20:6will reign with Him a 1,000 years (NOW) Revelation 5:11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was

ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands. Voices of Many Angels Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power

and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing. Worthy is the Lamb! Revelation 5:13 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, I heard saying: Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever. All the Earth Revelation 5:14 Then the four living

creatures said, Amen!" And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever. 24 Elders Chorus of Multitude of Angels Now we have additional singers--a multitude of

angels around the throne. All erupt in praise to the Lamb. Imagine the chorus of millions or thousands praising the Lamb and His accomplishments. This gives a brief glimpse of what it will be like when All of Gods Singers get Home! Heavens Praise Seven-fold aspect of the worthy Lamb: Powerto save, sustain, and sanctify (Romans 1:16)

Richesredeeming promise, pain, and poverty (2 Corinthians 8:9) Wisdomlight instead of darkness. Liberate us from fear. Lead to life (7:17) Mightoverthrow evil, overcome temptation, overshadow our weaknesses (1 Peter 2:11) Honorworthy of worship (Hebrews 3:3) Gloryseen in His birth, life, death, resurrection, present ministry (Hebrews 1:3) BlessingHe shares with us in the gospel of grace, goodness,

and glory! (Ephesians 1:3) True Worship Worship of the Father and the Lamb New courage and new hope for the persecuted on earth. Believing in Gods power (4) Redeeming the love of God (5) Gods people do not need to fear any enemy or force.
