Contents: Vision of the seven sealed books. The Lamb of God, Messiah is seen in His Kingly grandeur. Angels, elders and living creatures exalt the Lamb who is King.
Characters: God the Father, Messiah Jesus, John, strong angel, elders, four creatures.
Conclusion: It will be none other than the Lord Jesus Christ, Who as the Lamb of God was slain and rejected of men, Who will yet be manifested as the Lion of the tribe of Judah breaking the seals of God’s wrath against sinners upon the earth. He Who alone was worthy to redeem mankind with His precious blood, is worthy to take man’s judgment in hand. Happy are they who shall in that day be with the ransomed ones in heaven joining in the new song, associating with Him in judgment and preparing to reign with Him on earth during the 1,000 year Messianic Kingdom.
Key Word: Sealed Book, Revelation 5:1
Strong Verses: Revelation 5:9-10, 12
Striking Facts: The Lion and the Lamb are One (Revelation 5:5). The sacrifice of the Lamb made Him the Saviour of the redeemed, but He is yet to assume power as the Lion, for the execution of judgment when His purpose in the Church is perfected. Notice in Revelation 5:9 that it is the blood that the saints are still singing about.
