NMD 06 Rev 6 first 6 seals
In the last study of chapter 5, NMD 05 Scroll, we found out that only one person is able to accept the scroll and unroll it and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. In study NMD 06 Rev 6 first 6 seals we will study Revelation 6 where we will see the opening of the first 6 seals and the consequences for mankind on earth.
Once again we see that the Lord Jesus takes the initiative: in verse 1 the Lamb opens the first of the seven seals. At once there is commotion in heaven and earth. It is as if everything has waited for this sign: we see, as it were, these horses stamping impatiently to make a bolt for it. Something or someone has kept them back to hinder them from starting their destructive work. Now a voice like thunder is heard from one of the four living creatures who guard over creation and gives the starting shot for the greatest purification of all times.
The initiator and the executor of the scroll is all the time the Lamb. The living creatures, mentioned in Revelation, giving the starting shot does not appear on earth. Earlier on, in Revelation 4, we have explained these creatures too. We have seen that John found it difficult to describe these creatures. They look like a lion, an ox, a man and an eagle each of them having 6 wings and full of eyes. Really in many aspects they look much like the creatures Ezekiel saw in Ez 10:20 as an introduction of the faces he saw later. Ezekiel explained it as ‘I realised that they were Cherubim’.
