"...Who is worthy..."

  • This challenge is not being given just to this earth, but to the entire universe. Where is one who is qualified to open the seals? Where is Mohammed, Buddha, or any other god or redeemer? These scrolls contain the history of the human race and the entire gospel story of man's salvation. Only one who is qualified can open the seals. When there is no response to the angel's plea, the silence in heaven is so intense that John begins to cry because the salvation of man lies in the balance. (KC 90)
