The reality of this worlds fallen state.
Revelation 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.
2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”
3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.
Ah, Jesus is holding this scroll that is sealed. A strong angel shouts "who is worthy to open the scroll and loose its seals?" Answer, nobody in heaven or the earth! John wept much because of this. It seemed absolutely helpless! Many, as do I, believe this scroll is the title deed of the earth, if you will. Adam through his sin gave it up. All are now born into this sinful state. Hopeless & void of spiritual life. The point is made here, nobody is worthy or able to open it and unleash its seals. That was made perfectly clear. This world void of Jesus is very hopeless. The time we live now, we need Jesus, not a political leader. As John, we all need to see the reality of this worlds depravity of sin upon this world. Its corrupt to the very core & I dont want stock in any of it outside people won for Christ. Outside of people, does this world have much true value? Its crashing and will come under judgement.
