Breaking of the Seals

There are seven seals to be broken in order to release the full contents of the Book of Life.  Seven is the number of Spiritual perfection or maturity, completeness.  As Isaiah 11 states, there are seven Spirits or “manifestations” of FATHER.

A seal is a token, a proof of authentication by an authority that the contents are genuine.  It is used to restrict access until an appointed time and will not allow unauthorized lawless access, tampering, or manipulation.  John was given the responsibility of communicating what he saw in the third Heaven, after he was instructed to “come up hither”.  The material of the seal itself is disposable and only has temporary value.  Once broken, it is discarded.  Seals come in varying sizes but each has a similar purpose- restrict the contents from being revealed and access until lawful entry.

Revelation 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.

2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”

3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.

Only an authorized individual could break the seals.  “Who is worthy?” cried the messenger.  There are three realms that were searched out: heaven, earth, under the earth.  No one was found worthy in those three realms.  The people living on the earth today were considered.  Those who are dead (physically and spiritually) and buried were also under consideration.  Those who are deemed “spiritual” were inspected and found lacking.  None of the were even able to look at it!  None who walked by the spirit, soul, or body could open the Book.  None who had the revelation of Passover, Pentecost, or Tabernacles were qualified to open the Book.  There was something lacking for even no man in Heaven could open the Book.  John so desired for the full manifestation of the Sons of GOD to be released.  Was there not one person qualified?  What was John’s response?

4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.

I believe the Gospel of John to be the true first Gospel of the New Testament even though it is presented as the fourth Gospel.  Why do I believe this?  It is because John wrote from a different perspective and revelation than the others.  His Gospel begins with: 

John 1:1   In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He began at the “Alpha” manifestation of Jesus Christ.  In this context, the “Omega” Gospel must be the last book of the New Testament.  These form the “bookends” of the revealing and manifestation of Christ.  He began the last Gospel with:

Revelation 1:The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John.

The Beloved Disciple who wrote from the perspective of Love provides us the Word spoken to him:

Revelation 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

As John was weeping when no man could be found to open the Book, one of the elders around the Throne spoke:

5:5   But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

There is only One qualified to open this Book- Jesus Christ!  Once this Book is opened, the “Treasuries” of Heaven would be released to bring forth the knowledge of the Glory into all the earth.  These seals would not be opened prematurely, not until the Body has been matured to full perfection by Love.  “As HE is, so are we”!  To Him is given the authority to break the seals and bring forth the Sons into the fullness of their callings.
