When you study events like the holocaust of Adolf Hitler, the plans of CERN to transform the human race, or the United Nations population control plans, and you see the evil present in the world, it is disparaging. People have organs cut out of them, vaccinations for sterilization and euthanasia are tested for efficiency on healthy people, babies are killed and body parts are sold. In times throughout history and across the world, humanity has been minimized in value below animals. Evil events and personal turmoil make you wonder, “What is God’s plan for all of this suffering?”, then you read Revelation 5, and get your answer.
Yeshua is the firstborn of Yahweh. He was given the firstborn inheritance. In Eden, He gave dominion of the world to Adam. When Adam ate from the tree of good and evil, he sold his inheritance to Satan, but he could never terminate the lease or pay it out because he did not possess the price: righteous blood. Our current suffering is a direct result of sin, the title deed being signed over to Satan, and his alliances that cause havoc in our lives.
In Revelation 5, John sees the title deed of the world. He said, Then I saw in the right hand of the one seated on the throne a scroll written on the inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals; and I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it. And I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it (Revelation 5:1-4).”
Yahweh is not confined by time, but despite His ability to look thru the past and into the future; no one was able to open the scrolls. No one in Heaven, on the Earth, or under the Earth was able to muster the cost to transfer the title deed of the world, so John wept.
Similar to when a homeowner purchases a home and they have a series of documents that they must sign with a unique signature; in ancient times, a seal was used instead of the signature. For royalty, this seal was placed using a signet ring or something comparable and applying the intricate marking of the stamping device onto a wax-like substance. The wax-like substance would ensure that the document (scroll) would stay closed (sealed), and only was opened by a person with the authority to take possession of the scroll (redeemer), or seal the scroll back.
In the book of Ruth, you find the foreshadow for redemption in the story of Ruth and Boaz. Ruth, a gentile bride was widowed, she left her homeland (of wealth) to aid her Jewish widowed mother-in-law in Jerusalem in dire poverty. She worked in fields gleaning the edges of agricultural land; what the Torah commanded the Jews to leave for the poor. Over the course of her work, she attracted a wealthy kinsman who was qualified by geneological and economical circumstance. Boaz fit the Torah’s description of a kinsman redeemer. Leviticus 25:25-28 says, “‘If a fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his relative has sold. ‘Or in case a man has no kinsman, but so recovers his means as to find sufficient for its redemption, then he shall calculate the years since its sale and refund the balance to the man to whom he sold it, and so return to his property”. In accordance with this law, Boaz was able to redeem the property of Elimelech (Naomi’s late husband and father-in-law of Ruth). This redemption enabled the survival of Messiah’s lineage, and the transfer of the title from Satan (as detailed in Revelation 5).
In the book of Hosea, we have a foreshadow of sin leading to slavery, but a faithful husband (Hosea foreshadowing Yeshua) choosing to redeem His prostitute bride (Gomer foreshadowing Israel and Torah-adherents). Gomer, Hosea’s wife, willingly prostituted herself. Her actions were extremely humiliating to Hosea. People knew that Hosea’s wife was unfaithful and a practicing prostitute. Hosea would cry out to God in agony about the betrayal and pain inflicted by His wife; all along, God was using Hosea to illustrate to you and I His pain about our unfaithfulness and turning away. Despite the failures that we (Israel and covenant-keepers) have committed, like Hosea, when the world is being sold as a slave, Yeshua comes to our rescue. Revelation 5:5-6 says:
“Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”Then I saw between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders a Lamb standing as if it had been slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.”
Yeshua is the only one capable to open the title deed sealed by Satan. Paul said, “In him you also, when you had heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and had believed in him, were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit; this is the pledge of our inheritance toward redemption as God’s own people, to the praise of his glory.” His blood has paid the price for the title deed to be transferred into the hands of the Just Ruler. Regardless of how many blood sacrifices attempted by Satanists, how intelligent and sly the fallen angels, demons, and their human allies may be, the price has been paid, and their time of rulership will be terminated. When we see the evil in our world, our hope is in Revelation 5, Yeshua has paid the price, the title deed has switched hands, after all of the seals are removed, and Satan and all of his New World Order minions are judged, we will live in peace and victory. The New World Order will fail! Romans 8:18-25 says:
“I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labor pains until now; and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what is seen? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.”
