1 THE THRONE SCENE Revelation 5:1-6

2 Introduction Revelation is singular, not plural It is not a series of photos, but a live action movie – with color, sound, in 3D Setting is described in chapter 4 – camera is slowly zooming in on the opening scene. – God on the throne – 4 living ones (archangels), 24 elders (apostles, and Israel), host of angels, all humanity

3 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. Now the camera moves in on the action – the throne of God God has a scroll in His hand, sealed with 7 seals 7 is an important number 7 represents – whole, entire, complete

4 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. Written on both sides Scrolls were papyrus or vellum (calf or goat skin) Both have a smooth side and a rough side Most are written on smooth side only Both sides = THIS IS IMPORTANT !

5 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. Not : like an air tight canning jar Seal does not mean trapped inside and can't get out Seal = seal of authority – Shows authority – notary public seal, seal on offical documents – Shows it to be genuine – not tampered with, not changed

6 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?" Strong angel – one of the four closest to the throne of God Archangels were the higest rank among the angels of God “Who is worthy ?” - Who has the authority to break the seals ? Seal in your electric meter – do not tamper with it

7 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. Look around this building Look around our nation Look around our world Spiritual leaders, political leaders (past or present) Great leaders in the Bible – Noah, Moses, Joshua, David, Solomon In heaven – Apostles, angels, archangels

8 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 is weeping – Why ? Here is a message from God BUT : No one can open it If it can't be opened – it can't be read Think about a letter in the mail – Who can open and look inside ?

9 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." An elder speaks – apostle or representative of Israel Don't weep – Don't give up, all is not lost Lion of Judah – the tribe of kings Root of David – in the blood line of the kings of Judah

10 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. The camera spins around to look at the LION of Judah There is the LAMB In movies there are sudden and surprising change of scenes

11 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. The Lamb of God Had been slain – now alive 7 horns – power or authority Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

12 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. The Lamb of God Had been slain – now alive 7 horns – power or authority 7 eyes – Full spirit of God John 3: He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true. 34 For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.
