In the first century A.D. a scroll sealed with seven seals would have been recognized as a legal document; specifically, a will. This scroll is the title deed of our inheritance. It is the restoration of that which was lost in the Fall (Gen. 3). Not just anyone will be able to open the scroll in that day. The one who opens the scroll must be a kinsman-redeemer for the human race. He must be our blood relative, but without sin. He must desire to redeem us. He must pay the redemption price. According to the elder, a kinsman-redeemer exists. He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. He is the Root of David. He has conquered. He will be worthy to open the scroll in that day. The Apostle John’s gaze was met with a shocking sight.
