Revelation 5:2 KJV

(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?



“Who is worthy?”  What a very important question to ask!   Basically, the angel is asking, “Who is the appropriate One to take control of the events of this world (the seven seals) and the events in this world to come (opening the scroll)?  Who is deserving of this great honor?”   “Who is the One that is fitting and proper to have the Ultimate control over all of the events that will affect our lives, both now and in the life to come?”

WOW!  Gaining the answer to this question will show us the identity of our Master and the purpose of our existence on earth.   In the next few devotions, we will be finding the answer to this question that is placed before us.


But for this morning, I would like us to simply stop and consider the great importance of this issue.  Who deserves to rule over us?  Who is the proper One to possess authority over every aspect of our lives (including every breath we take)?  Who is the One who can be relied upon to control our eternal inheritance that awaits those saved by His grace?


Can we see why this issue is so very important?…

If this authority is placed into the hands of a dictator abuse, tyranny and hopelessness will prevail throughout this world and in our own personal lives.

If this power is given to One that is lax and disinterested in us, we will have a Master that is disengaged and careless, allowing our lives, and the entire world. to degenerate and spin out of control without giving either a second thought.

If this privilege is given to the impotent, then no matter how good their intentions might be, they will be unable to intervene and bring about their will for our lives.’

If this honor is given to One that is naïve and limited in their knowledge of future events, it will be possible for Him to be fooled by Satan, make faulty decisions and be limited in their decision making not knowing what lies ahead.

If this rulership is given to One that is limited by space and time, we will have a Ruler whose attention and efforts will be limited.  He will be stretched to the breaking point and unable to handle the almost infinite number of situations, needs, and abuses that are taking place throughout the world.


Do we see the importance of the issue that is set before us?  Do we see how, if placed in the wrong hands, the authority over the seven-sealed scroll can mean our doom?

But do not fear, child of God, the One that is fitting and proper WILL RECEIVE this great privilege of control over all!!!  Our God will remain faithful to us in granting this control to One who loves us, is constantly interested in our well-being, and is All-powerful, All-knowing, and ever present with us no matter where we may be.

Let us thank our God for placing our lives and the entire world in the hands of the WORTHY ONE!


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.
