The beautiful word picture, Jesus painted for us in chapter 4 continues through chapter 5, still a self portrait of himself and the beautiful throne of God.  Now the focus moves to a scroll that cannot be opened, causing John to weep.  We will look into that scroll, but again the main point is to see Jesus and his sacrificial death for his people to provide salvation, the power of reclaiming and restoration and more.  Look to the throne of God and see Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, worship, praise and serve the one true God and give “glory and honor and thanks”!
