The scroll and the Lamb

1 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 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 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6 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 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8 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 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 and hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. 11 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 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 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 for ever and ever. 14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Lesson No. 455 "All of Creation Worships Him Who is Worthy"

Book of Revelation, Chapter 5


1) John is in heaven in the throne room, and he sees that God the Father has in his right hand a sealed book or scroll. Why would a book have seals? Why is this information protected? Kings used signet rings with wax seals.

2) Verse 2 has a strong angel with a loud voice proclaiming a question. Last time we the thought the angel might be Gabriel; who might this one be?

3) What did the angel ask in verse 2?

4) Verse 3 defines who is not worthy to break the seals- who is he talking about?

5) Why did John weep because the judgment book could not be opened?

6) One of the elders tells John who is worthy- who is this Lion of Juda and Root of David?

7) Verse 6 described Jesus as a slain Lamb, but also a Lion.
What two aspects of Jesus does these two images represent? Which is the first coming and which is the second?

8) Notice that the image of Jesus as the slain Lamb has what unique characteristics NOT common to a lamb? (Hint- verse 6)

9) Where does the Lamb sit? Can anyone just walk up and sit on the throne of God? (Hint- verse 7)

10) All of heaven celebrates as Jesus is worthy to open the book of judgment. What do the elders do? What do the elders carry? (Hint- v 8)

11) Verses 9 through 13 describe a good old fashion heaven 'hoe-down'! Who sings the new song?

12) What are the words to the new song? (Hint- verse 12)

13) What does verse 13 remind us of ? (Hint- Philippians 2:10, 11) All creation watches and sings and praises the King of Kings as He brings God's judgment. What do you think is coming???
