Revelation 5

      Listen to this Talk


Lesson Number 6

Background Notes

Doctrinal Point(s)

  1. The Lord Jesus is worthy to open the book of future judgment.
  2. The Lord Jesus will be worshiped when the book of future judgment is opened.

Practical Application

  1. Get ready for the thrill of universal praise!


  1. Where does the vision of Revelation 5 take place?
  2. What does the scroll with the seven seals represent?
  3. Who was the only one worthy to open the scroll?
  4. In what two ways is the Lord Jesus presented in this chapter?
  5. How will Philippians 2:10 be fulfilled in this vision?


  1. In heaven, before the throne of God
  2. The scroll is a book of judgment. As each seal is broken, a judgment takes place on earth during the future Tribulation period.
  3. “The Lion of the tribe of Judah” – the Lord Jesus Christ
  4. As the Lion (verse 5) and the Lamb (verse 6).
  5. From verses 11-14 we see that the praise of heaven becomes universal honor for God and the Lamb. Verse 13 shows that every knee will bow, acknowledge, and honor Him.


  1. Discuss how Jesus Christ prevailed and triumphed, and is thus qualified to bring judgment on this earth.
  2. Review the truths proclaimed in our Redemption Song (Revelation 5:9-10). This is the song of the redeemed, that we as believers will sing in eternity.


  1. If you are emotionally exhilarated this week by a shout or cheer of celebration with others, stop and think about the universal praise we will hear for the Lord who redeemed us!
