Scripture: Revelation 5:1-2
Revelation 5:1 and 2 says, “And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, ‘Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?’” In the book of Revelation we find a major transition and this transition is over simple qualification. Who is worthy? The Greek word ‘worthy’ is ax-ee-os which portrays the picture of a commercial balancing scale or the balancing scale we would see as the scales of justice. Who is worthy? Have we qualified? Have we paid the price? He who loves son and daughter more than Me is not ax-ee-os of Me. He who is not willing to take up his cross and follow Me is not ax-ee-os of Me. The word ax-ee-os is the word that shows up in the New Testament concerning whether we are willing to walk the walk that will initiate the sword. If we are willing, we have bought the sword. If we are not, we are forfeiting our access to the sword until we repent! Which one will we do?
