Revelation 5 -- The Power Of God And The Wisdom Of God

By ZNP · Aug 9, 2020 · ·
  1. 5 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the back, close sealed with seven seals. There is a lot of speculation about what this book is, but I think that is pointless. We learn enough from the record here in Revelation to make some very key conclusions about what this is. Three of these key points are right here in this one verse. It is written within and on the back. That is not typical, but it clearly states there is no room for any additions. Second it is sealed, so whatever was in this book was not revealed until these seals are opened and the next few chapters of Revelation talk about what is revealed then. Third there are seven seals, that would make this document a will, or an inheritance, or a trust fund. Psalm 2:8 Ask of me, and I will give thee the nations for thine inheritance, This verse in psalms makes it clear that God intends to give the risen Christ the nations for an inheritance. Although this verse is not directly referenced by John it is either referring to this or to something quite similar. We give graduation presents to our kids, this appears to be something given to the Lord after His resurrection and ascension.

    Lord we pray to behold the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the one who overcame to open the book and the seven seals thereof. Lord reveal to us the Lamb with seven horns and the seven Spirits of God. Reveal the one who has made us a kingdom and priests to our God. Reveal to us the worthy one! The one who shuts the mouth of the accuser. Worthy are you Lord to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.
