In our previous studies we have seen that Revelation chapter 4:, which begins a vision of worship taking place in heaven, chapter 5 forms the completion of this vision:

  1. The Scroll And The Lamb (5:1-7)
  2. Worship Of The Lamb (5:8-14)
  3. Worship of The Saints (vs 8-10)
  4. Worship of Saints and Angels (vs 11-12)
  5. Worship of All Creation (vs 13-14)





  1. Revelation 5:1-7 – The Scroll and the Lamb


Following the worship of God by the 4 beasts and 24 elders, we now have our concentration placed upon the sealed book that is in the hand of God.  This book is a scroll that represents the eternal inheritance that is awaiting the saints of God, while the 7 seals represent the events that must take place before the saints can receive their inheritance.


A search begins for one who is worthy to receive this scroll, break the seals and reveal its contents.  No angel, nor man, is found worthy and the situation seems hopeless.  But then, a Lamb (the Lord Jesus Christ) comes onto the scene and and rightfully, receives the scroll.  John is shown that the Lamb is the only One that is worthy to break the seals (control the events leading up to eternity) and open the scroll (graciously bestow the eternal blessings to the saints.)


For a much more detailed look at this section of Scripture:





  1. Revelation 5:8-14 – The Worship of the Lamb


Following the receipt of the sealed book (scroll) by the Lamb, the four beasts and 24 elders (the redeemed of God) fall to their knees in worship and submission to the Lamb.  He is the One that has secured their eternal blessings.


In response to their appreciation for His work on their behalf, the redeemed begin a song of honor and praise for their Savior.  In that song, they directly link the work of Christ with His worthiness to receive the scroll.  Basically, they are singing that, because Christ was faithful to the Father and willing to give His life for those He loves, He alone deserves to rule the events of the world leading up to eternity and to bestow upon His people the eternal blessings He has acquired for them.


As their song continues the heavenly angels and finally the entire creation of God joins with them in this song of appreciation, honor and praise for the Lamb who has done so much for them.
