THE SEALED BOOK
5:v.1 And I saw in the right hand of Him sat on the throne, a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. Until this moment, God the Father had not delivered still the sealed book to JESUS, so its content was in secret yet. Even JESUS did not know until this moment what the Father had hidden in the sealed book since ancient times.
THE GREAT CEREMONY AND THE GREAT EXPECTATION OR SUSPENSE
We must see that there was a great expectation of the millions of angels, among archangels and Cherubs and elders, in fact the heavenly environment was filled with heavenly inhabitants and the most important thing was that the King - JESUS, the Word made flesh - was present and seated on the throne for this wonderful Cerimony. The focus of the great heavenly Ceremony was to know if Jesus Himself being the King would open the book, or if He would give it to another who could be worthy to open the book besides Him Himself, of course.
THE GREAT QUESTION
v.2 And John AS A GUEST saw a strong angel (an Archangel) proclaiming with a loud voice in the midst of the great heavenly multitude, saying: "Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?" JESUS, crowned as King of kings and Lord of Lords was sat on the throne looking the celestial multitude and the sealed book. No one from the heavenly crowd there presented himself as if he was able to open the book. No one of the multitude answer the question of the strong angel, there was total silence. With this question the strong angel of the Lord (an Archangel) wanted to tell to the great heavenly crowd if there was anyone worthy to open the book and break their seven seals besides JESUS. No one of the multitude answer the question. The silence was total. It was it. Thus was the celestial environment when John did write the verse 3 that says:
THE WRONG CONCEPTION OF JOHN, THE GUEST
v.3 And no MAN in heaven (angels, archangels, Cherubs, even JESUS), nor in earth, neither under the earth, was ABLE to open the book, neither to look thereon.
NO MAN IN HEAVEN
Yes, in the first moment John did think that "No one" of the heavenly crowd there presented himself as if he was able to open the book. "No MAN in heaven" with the exception of JESUS of course, who was there to receive the sealed book from the Father. The King of kings was present there who in fact was able to open the book and break up its seven seals.
NO MAN IN EARTH
Under heaven no MAN in EARTH (except JESUS IF He were here), was able to open the sealed book.
NO MAN UNDER THE EARTH
Under the earth were the apostles, and countless disciples, even the own mother of JESUS, which are waiting their resurrection in this Lord's Day, no one were ABLE to open the book, neither to look thereon.
By the way, speaking of resurrection, it is opportune to reveal here that it will happen now, even now, in this Lord's Day. The apostles, inclusive the own John the Apostle who was in the heavenly Cerimony, and the mother of JESUS, and countless disciples, will resurrect now, even now, and the powers in heaven will be shaken. It will be as an earthquake.
THE WRONG CONCEPTION OF JOHN, THE GUEST, CONTINUES
v.4 And John wept much, because no MAN was found worthy to OPEN and to READ the book, neither to look thereon. John, AS A GUEST, in the first moment he did think that "no man was found worthy to open the book and break up its seven seals, neither to look thereon" (v.3), and now in the verse 4 he cried a lot because he did think that "no man was found worthy to OPEN and to READ the book, neither to look thereon", for for John even Jesus would not go to open the book, and reveal the secrets described therein. But one of the elders took care to undo this misperception of the Apostle, as we can see in verses 5 and 6 which explains this by itself, as follows:
ONE OF THE ELDERS UNDO THE WRONG CONCEPTION OF JOHN - JESUS WAS THERE
v.5 And one of the elders saith unto John, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David - the Lord JESUS - hath prevailed to OPEN the book, and to BREAK UP the seven seals thereof. Then John's eyes were opened as shown in verse 6: Remember that in the chapter 4 John did see that in the great Ceremony there were four Cherubs, and day and night they never stop saying “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty - JESUS -, which was, and is, and is to come.
v.6 And John beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four Cherubs, 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, The seven spirits of God are: the spirit of wisdom, and the spirit of understanding, and the spirit of counsel, and the spirit of might, and the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of fear of the Lord, and the holy spirit.
THE SEALED BOOK IS DELIVERED TO JESUS
v.7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
God Father delivered the sealed book to JESUS and since now He entered in His rest, and JESUS assume the control not only of the whole Earth but also of the Universe. The sealed book was with JESUS. JESUS is sat on the throne as King of kings and Lord of lords, and will open it. Around Him are ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands of angels, and the 24 elders, and 4 Cherubs: The 24 elders are: Moses - and Joshua - and Samuel - Ezra - Nehemiah - Job - David - Solomon - Isaiah - Jeremiah - Ezekiel -Daniel - Hosea - Joel - Amos - Obadiah - Jonah - Micah - Nahum - Habakkuk - Zephaniah - Haggai - Zechariah - Malachi.
8 And when JESUS took the book, the four Cherubs 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;
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS ESTABLISHED ON EARTH
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 Cherubs 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 Cherubs said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped Him that liveth for ever and ever.
JESUS open the book and break up one of the seven seals. This first seal reveals the PROPHETIC union between Christ and His Church (Rev.6:v.1-2)
REVELATION 6 - JESUS OPEN THE SEALED BOOK AND BREAK UP THE SEVEN SEALS
