Revelation  1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10,11,12,13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22
 
Revelation 5:1 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.
  • Notice, ''Him that sat on the throne'' is God, not Christ
  • The ''book'', which is the truth, is in His hand But it is sealed.
  • Ezekiel 2:9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
  • Ezekiel 2:10 And He spread it before me and it was written within and without and there was written therein lamentations and warnings and woe''.
  • Now, ''within and without'' means it was abundantly complete and contained all truths and all facts.
  • Ezekiel 3:1 Moreover He said unto me Son of man eat that thou findest; eat this roll and go speak unto the house of Israel.
  • Ezekiel 3:2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.
    Ezekiel 3:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
  • In a way we find that this is the way the Identity message is a first.
  • When we partake of it, it is bitter to the stomach.
  • It changes a lot of things we have already been taught by the churches we have attended.
  • However, when we finally understand it, it becomes sweetness to us to understand the full plan of God and the salvation He has for all mankind.
  • Ezekiel 3:13 I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.
  • You will see the same four creatures mentioned in Revelation 4:6
  • Revelation 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
  • And again in this chapter, how the ''book'' relates to the book of Revelation.
  • What is in this ''book'' we are reading about?
  • The ''book'' pertains to the tree of life, Which is Jesus Christ.
  • It is through Him that we receive eternity.
  • If we understand the ''book'' we understand the plan of God.
  • Sealed = having been sealed up
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?
  • I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
  • Jesus, is the only One without blemish
  • Strong = mighty
  • Loud = great
3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
  • No man = no on
  • Heaven = the heaven
  • Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
  • You know the seals and know God's Plans
  • No one was worthy to open the ''book''. But Jesus, the only One without blemish
4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
  • I wept = was weeping
5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
  • These descriptions refer to Jesus Christ.
  • He has prevailed.
  • John was seeing the last day
  • When the trump is sounded. Christ has already been crucified
  • Tribe = same as "kindred"
  • Prevailed = at Calvary = same word as "overcome"
  • Revelation 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
    5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
    6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
    7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
    8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
    9 And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,
    10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
    11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
  • These descriptions refer to Jesus Christ. He has prevailed.
  • John was seeing the last day
  • When the trump is sounded. Christ has already been crucified
  • Tribe = same as "kindred"
  • Prevailed = at Calvary = same word as "overcome"
  • As the next verse proves
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.
  • This shows the crucifixion had already taken place.
  • These are the same seven spirits that were sent unto the churches.
  • The seven spirits are all linked together by the Holy Spirit.
  • If Jesus Christ is the only one.
  • Who has the authority and power to break the seals and look into the book?
  • How can we look into the book?
  • Because Christ is in us.
  • The Kenites can not see this. Because they reject Christ.
  • Zech 4 Seven Eyes are God's Seven Thousands Very Elect
  • These are the eyes that can see with understanding.
  • They study with understanding, they are hungry for God's words not man words.
  • Horns = a symbol indicating His power
  • 2 Samuel 22:3  The God of my Rock; in him will I trust: He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.
    4 I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
  • Beasts = the zoa (Rev 4:6)
  • Lamb = little Lamp = Feed my lambs
  • Stood = Lamb = a lamb standing
  • John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
  • Took = hath taken
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.
  • Psalms 148:14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.
  • Odours = incense = represents The prayers of the saints.
  • Even of the children of Israel, a people near unto Him.
  • Vials = bowls
  • Are = symbolize
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;
  • Note it says a New song.
  • Psalms 149:1 Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
    2 Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
    3 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
    4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
    5 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
    6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
    7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
    8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
    9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
  • New = Matthew 9:17 Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.
  • Hast redeemed = didst purchase
  • Redeemed = Greek wood = agorazo. Always "buy", except here and (redeem).
  • Revelation 14:3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
  • Us = "them"
  • Revelation 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
  • Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

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;
  • Ten thousand = myriads
  • Daniel 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
  • Daniel 7:10 tells of these same thousands upon thousands that are before the throne.
  • There are a few that he is going to collect right now.
  • The rest will have to wait for the ''short season'' the Bible mentions
  • Until the end of the millennium
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.
  • Loud = great

    2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
    3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
    4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
    5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
