Revelation 5



Revelation 5 presents a powerful vision of the Lamb, identified as Jesus Christ, being found worthy to open the sealed scroll. This event triggers an outpouring of worship from heavenly beings, elders, and every created thing, highlighting the Lamb's central role in God's redemptive plan. The chapter sets the stage for the unfolding of the seals, revealing God's judgment and sovereignty.


  1. The Scroll and the Lamb (Revelation 5:1-5): In the right hand of God, seated on the throne, is a scroll sealed with seven seals. A strong angel asks who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals. Initially, no one is found, causing John to weep. However, one of the elders reassures him that the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll. The Lion is identified as the Lamb standing as if slain, symbolizing Jesus Christ.
  2. Worship of the Lamb (Revelation 5:6-14): The Lamb takes the scroll, and as he does, heavenly beings and elders burst into a song of praise. The Lamb is acknowledged for His sacrificial death, and He is declared worthy to receive power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing. The entire creation joins in worship, magnifying the Lamb and the One seated on the throne.
  3. Every Creature Sings (Revelation 5:13-14): The scene crescendos with every creature, both in heaven, on earth, under the earth, and in the sea, praising God and the Lamb. The four living creatures and the elders fall down and worship, affirming the Lamb's eternal reign.
