SIH TOTT ICONRevelation 5:1 KJV

(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.




During John’s vision of the throne of God in heaven, he sees “a seven sealed book” in the hand of Almighty God, the One that was sitting upon the throne.

This book plays a very important role in the remaining visions that John will receive and record for us in Revelation.  Basically, this “book” is a scroll that is sealed on the outside with seven seals.  One by one, as each seal is broken, John will be shown an event that must take place before the saints of God will receive their eternal inheritance.   Following the breaking of the final seal, John will see the scroll opened which will reveal to John the inheritance that is awaiting the saints of God as they enter eternity with their Lord.

Folks, one of the great purposes of Revelation is to help us to see Christ being revealed in the events of the world around us leading up to His second coming and then the greatness of Christ being revealed to us throughout eternity.  This is the purpose of the seven sealed scroll.


For our devotional thought for this morning, keep in mind the scroll is seen in the hands of God.  Folks, do we understand that our Lord is in control? …

He is in control of the events of this world that take place prior to His second coming.

He is in control of His second coming and the glorious eternal inheritance His saints will receive from Him.

He is in control of our “now”.  He is in control of our “future”.

He is in control of events in this sinful, fallen world.  He is in control of  the events of the sinless New Heavens and Earth which is yet to come.


He is in control!


In the generation of Ebola, Isis, beheadings, tornadoes, floods, Russian invasions, missing jetliners, etc etc we can know for certain, that He is in control of them all.  He knows about them and is using them for His purposes.   In some cases, He is actively bringing them into existence, in other cases, He is allowing them to exist.  In either case, He is in control.  Based upon this knowledge,  we can better understand what we are clearly told in the Scriptures…

Isaiah 41:10 KJV  “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

Folks, no matter what we may see take place around us, because He is in control, we can rest assured He will be with us, strengthen us, and uphold us!


May the Lord bless us as we seek to serve Him, the One that is so clearly revealed to us in the book of   the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
