God Is Already There

God Is In Complete Control If You Are One Of His Children

Revelation 5:1-14
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.

In chapter four, John is caught up into the very throne room of God. In chapter five, the focus shifts to the right hand of God, who is seated on His throne. In His hand is a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals (5:1). In John’s time, books as we have today didn’t exist. Instead, people wrote on scrolls, which were made from single, long strips of papyrus (paper-like material made from the papyrus plant) or from parchment (specially treated leather). They were kept rolled up on a stick.

This chapter doesn’t reveal what is written on the scroll. However, when the seals are broken in chapter six, the judgments of God will be poured out on the earth. When the seventh seal is opened, the trumpets begin to sound ( Chapters. 8-9). Then, at the sounding of the seventh trumpet, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets (10:7). At least in part, the scroll is the fulfillment of the angel Gabriel’s answer to Daniel’s question regarding the end of time.

What does Gabriel tell him in Daniel 12:9c?

Daniel 12:9
9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

This seven-sealed scroll contains the unfolding of the end of the age. There is good news for God’s children…

Since God is holding the scroll, He is in complete control, even when there is chaos on earth. Therefore, those who know God through Jesus Christ have nothing to fear (Rev. 3: 10).

Revelation 3:10
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Do you have a relationship with Jesus? You can tonight simply by asking Him into your heart.

Romans 10:13

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
