Vision Two. (Rev. 4-7) Subject: Human history from God’s perspective.
The Ascension of Jesus was the turning point in history, based on Daniel 7. The scroll is the title deed of the world. Jesus alone paid the price to purchase the whole world from its bondage to the deceiver. The tearing off of the seals on the scroll represents a period of time between the purchase and the fulfillment of complete ownership. Prior to the completion of the process, there will be a time of travail, to be followed by the joy of the birth of the Kingdom.
