The 7 Sealed Scroll

Recommended Posts

You start with a HUGE "If" that is not truth to begin with. The book is the title deed or lease document to earth. What is in it is what we read from Rev. chapter 8 onward. On the other hand, the book of life is a HUGE book in heaven. These are two different books.

Hi Iam

Oh it's not that huge brother. It's just a little 'if'.....more of a query.

Yes, I agree that the 7 sealed scroll contains the title deed to the earth. It also contains lamentations and woes.

In Dan 7, we see that a court is seated, books are opened, and a judgment rendered during Daniels 70th week. Because Gods judgment is immutable, we know without question that the Book of Life must also be opened at that time as well. The Book of Life cannot only be opened a thousand years after Christ's return, it must also be opened prior to the Resurrection and Rapture. Anytime souls are judged, it must be opened. It is the only way under Gods unchanging system of justice that He determines who the righteous are.

I can find NOWHERE in REvelation that during the 70th week the book of life will be opened. I think what you are seeing in Daniel 7 is AFTER the 70th week has finished, AFTER Jesus has returned to the Battle of ARmageddon, and perhaps up to the sheep and goat judgment. But perhaps even later at the great White throne judgment: we KNOW it is opened then. 

Your timing  is all mixed up!  There is a resurrection of those IN Christ, pretrib according to Paul in 1st and 2nd Thes. And according to John with the great crowd too large to number in chapter 7.  This resurrection will come AT LEAST 7 years before the events of chapter 20.

At the 7th vial, which ends the week, the Old Testament saints will be resurrected. It will be "on the last day." It will be the last 24 hour day at the end of the 70th week.  

BOTH of these resurrections will be a part of the "first" or primary resurrection seen in Rev. 20. In fact, Jesus' resurrection was the very first part of this chief resurrection. 

Perhaps the book of life will be opened at the rapture - but if so, the bible does not say it, so we should not say it either. God KNOWS who will take place in the rapture. Just remember, the rapture is PRETRIB. This kind of blows your theory out of the water. so to speak.
