REVELATION CHAPTER 5 v 1-14
1 KJV: 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 KJV: 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 KJV: And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
4 KJV: And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5 KJV: And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
6 KJV: 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 KJV: And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
8 KJV: 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 KJV: 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 KJV: And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
11 KJV: 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 KJV: 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 KJV: 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 forever and ever.
14 KJV: And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth forever and ever.
Welcome everyone Hope we had a lovely weekend? I sure did We didn’t hold any class on Friday So the class we were meant to have then will be done today as a spillover I’m excited already, I hope we are as well. What we are gonna talk about today is very important to the believer, to not waste much of our time, I’m gonna start now Others will join us. Now the continuation of John’s visions Now he said he looked again and he saw a book in the right hand of the One who sat on the Throne. Remember, these visions were just unfolding in different scenes to reveal different things.
When he saw the One who sat on the Throne, there was no book in His Hands the first time. But in another scene, he saw a book Now this book was SEALED with seven seals. Does that mean there’s a literal book in the Kingdom? No, Remember we said visions are presented as figures and metaphors Now seeing a book or a scroll in visions signifies ORDINATION.
Now John was seeing that an ORDINATION was sealed with seven seals Let’s go ahead! Now there were things written all over the book, from within to around and outside these are utterances of ordination designed by the Father, by the One who sat on the Throne, it was in His RIGHT HAND, not in the hand of any angel, meaning the book contained His inscriptions.
Now another scene passed and John saw an angel, he called him a STRONG angel, hah. But this angel with all his strength couldn’t break the seals. He was even making an announcement in the universe if anyone was able and worthy to break the seals. As we go on, I’ll reveal what the seal is to us. Just follow me as I go. Now alas!! No man in Heaven, nor the Earth, nor under the Earth could break the seals and manifest what was written therein. When you read a book or a scroll invasion, it means there will be a physical manifestation of what is read. But no one could even read it, haha, no one qualified. Now the qualification wasn’t by strength, no! Which was why even the strong angel couldn’t break and read it. It was never by strength to be counted worthy.
Now if you look closely at that verse, you’d realize John said, “No man in heaven” Are there men in Heaven? Haha, No, there are no men in HeavenBecause that realm is a spiritual Civilisation RULED by a Spirit and men subscribes to. What he meant by that was no man sent from God could open it, none of them qualified, not even the Prophets, none! When he said no man on the Earth, he was speaking of natural men! None qualified, haha. Remember, this announcement was made by an angel but to men. So the breaking of the seal is something that must be done by a man, but no one in mankind qualified.
Now follow me Follow carefully, Now what does he mean by UNDER THE EARTH? Have you ever asked yourself this question? Under the Earth doesn’t mean under the ground, haha Now there are three major dimensions of the universe. One is the Kingdom of Heaven, then the Earth and under the Earth. Satan and his Civilisation was a proceeding from God’s Kingdom, hope you know? They rebelled against God’s Supreme Authority and carved their own government which we called DARKNESS because that Civilisation is not in alignment with the Kingdom of Heaven.
