Do you really want to tangle with him? I mean like really? 

 If you have read about one surrounded by living creatures, which have “in the midst of the throne and round about the throne and who is full of eyes before and behind; one living creature like a lion; and the second living creature like a calf and the third living creature has a face as a man and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle” (Revelation 4:6-7).   

Now I ask you who in his/her right mind wants to tangle with the One Eternal who keeps company with such as these, who has a throne in the heavens crystal clear like diamonds, sardius, like emeralds and rubies and lightnings and thundering? Who?  

And taking it further, each of them (four living creatures) have six wings about them and they are full of eyes within and they don’t rest! They give glory, honor, praise and glory and worship and thanks to Him incessantly – without stopping, who sits on the throne, they and the 24 elders.  

Fall down and worship Him on the throne for ever and ever. Knowing they cannot equal or come close to the gloriousness of Him, they cast their crowns before the throne of Him, saying, “Thou art worthy, “O Lord, to receive honor, glory and power and thanks to Him, for you have created all things and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.”  

Now man can make a mess. He can imagine and pretend he is a creator. Don’t believe it. It is demonic possession deception. They can make AI (artificial intelligence). That’s why it’s called artificial because that’s how the adversary “rolls.” By deception.  

There is only One! “And the thousands upon thousands and multiple thousands (Revelation 5:11) myriads they are saying in a loud voice, ‘Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive blessing,’” which you cannot count, wait to learn who can take the book – the untouchable book.  

John took the book which is the title deed to the earth. The Eternal One has been holding it in safekeeping until this time. After taking the book the four living creatures and 24 elders fell down and they had musical instruments and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of the saints: singing a new song: “Thou are worthy to take the book and to open the seals of the book. And you have prevailed and redeemed us to God by your precious blood. We are the redeemed from every nation, every kindred and tongue and people.”  

The Lamb took the book. After he had taken the book, which no other was allowed to look upon; he breaks the seven seals. He starts with the first seal at Revelation 6:1; the second seal at Revelation 6:3; the third seal at Revelation 6:5; the fourth seal at Revelation 6:7; the fifth seal at Revelation 6:9; the sixth seal at Revelation 6:12; the seventh seal at Revelation 8:1, which is the prelude to the seven trumpets.  

There is silence in heaven for about half an hour. John sees the seven angels who stand before God. At the opening of the seventh seal is the prelude to the seven trumpets. The seventh trumpet contains the seven bowl judgements and it’s “the system” which will be destroyed.
