The Lion & Lamb
Revelation 5: 1 - 5
  • 1 And I saw in the right hand of the One seated upon the throne a scroll written within and on the reverse side, sealed tight with seven seals.
  • 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice: "Who is worthy to open the scroll and loose its seals?"
  • 3 But neither in heaven nor upon earth nor underneath the earth was there a single one able to open the scroll or to look into it.
  • 4 And I gave way to a great deal of weeping because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.
  • 5 But one of the elders says to me: "Stop weeping. Look! The Lion that is of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has conquered so as to open the scroll and its seven seals."

Revelation 7:5

  • 5 Out of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand sealed;
    out of the tribe of Reu´ben twelve thousand;
    out of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand;

Revelation 5:6-10

  • 6 And I saw standing in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a lamb as though it had been slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which [eyes] mean the seven spirits of God that have been sent forth into the whole earth.
  • 7 And he went and at once took [it] out of the right hand of the One seated on the throne.
  • 8 And when he took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, having each one a harp and golden bowls that were full of incense, and the [incense] means the prayers of the holy ones.
  • 9 And they sing a new song, saying: "You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought persons for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
  • 10 and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth."

Who are Sealed?

Revelation 7:1 - 3

  • 1 After this I saw four angels standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding tight the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow upon the earth or upon the sea or upon any tree.
  • 2 And I saw another angel ascending from the sunrising, having a seal of [the] living God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea,
  • 3 saying: "Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads."

The scroll and it's SEVEN Seals openend
