Jesus is Worthy

Revelation 5:4-5 says; Then I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll and read it. 5 But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.”  John was in a vision in heaven.  He saw heavenly beings all giving glory and praise to God.  The scroll needed to be opened so that the last day events would begin and bring the second coming of Jesus to fruition.  John wept because no one initially came forward to open the scroll.  Then Jesus, the Lion of Judah, the Lamb that was slain, came forward and all of heaven rejoiced for He alone was worthy.  Jesus could open the scroll because He died and rose again for our sins.  Jesus is worthy and able to open the hurt and pain sealed up in your life today.  Give the Lamb your scrolls and He will bring you peace, comfort, and the assurance of salvation as this world crumbles around you.
