Why Did John Weep? Revelation 5

The earth was invaded by an intruder, liar, deceiver named Satan.  He claimed to be the god of this earth, which is also a lie. Deuteronomy 10:14  "Indeed heaven and the highest heavens belong to the Lord your God, also the earth with all that is in it."  Satan rules by fear and intimidation over those who are deceived by him. I declare this liar is not the god of this world, but a masquerade of pretension.   At best, he is only god over those who choose to be under him.  I am in this world and he is not my god!  Yes, all of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God and to be delivered from the curse.  

John the revelator, saw Jesus take possession of the earth legally through a scroll.  John wept greatly because no man was worthy to take the scroll and open it.  Inside this scroll was all the suffering, bondage, sin, destruction and oppression of mankind.  The scroll was awaiting someone worthy to open it and who had the LEGAL RIGHT and would release creation itself from the bondage of corruption.  Then Revelation 5:5 says, "But one of the elders said to me, 'Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.'"

This section of scripture is one of my favorite and worthy to be noticed for a few of your minutes today.  Stop and listen to this short section of teaching on Rev. 5.  You will be blessed!
