Slain Lamb, Risen King
Does history repeat itself?
The Scroll with 7 seals – Rev 5:1
“And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.”
And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.” (Rev 5:9-10)
- A will
