Wesley's Notes for Revelation 5:7


5:7 And he came - Here was Ask of me, #Psa 2:8|, fulfilled in the most glorious manner. And took - it is one state of exaltation that reaches from our Lord's ascension to his coming in glory. Yet this state admits of various degrees. At his ascension, angels, and principalities, and powers were subjected to him. Ten days after, he received from the Father and sent the Holy Ghost. And now he took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne - who gave it him as a signal of his delivering to him all power in heaven and earth. He received it, in token of his being both able and willing to fulfil all that was written therein.


Discussion for Revelation 5

  • Anthony Wells
    There is one God(Yahweh) and one Lord and saviour Jesus, who was given the power by the father, why? Col 1:19 because it pleased the Father so, when all things shall be subdued unto him, then the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be in all. 1Cor 15:28 Christ is the first begotten of the dead Rev 1:5 the first of a new creation resurrected to eternity.
  • A disciple
    Because God so loved the world, and because there was no man worthy to come and take the sacred scroll from His hand; God Himself provided us a Man, through whom He could make reconciliation, and so also open our understanding to understand the matters that He undertakes with man. In the little scroll are the things done, and those determined for the conclusion of this matter of the present age.

The standards or flags, a connection you will read about when you read of Gods throne when it is in movement, the 4 protection tribe flags attached to their vehicles, man,lion,eagle and calf. Oh, there wings are on their vehicle, call rings by Ezek.
