The throne room in Heaven sounds like a pretty trippy place, involving a large circle of thrones and thunder and lightning shooting out - this is starting to sound like something a young child would come up with during drawing time, especially with the random animals hanging about that look like actual animals apart from the six wings and eyes all over.

Jesus is the only one worthy to open the seven seals on a particular scroll, this makes the grovvelling masses in heaven fervently worship.

The first four seals release the four horsemen of the apocalypse - recent seasons of Supernatural have involved some of this end of the world stuff so it's very familiar - behind the fifth seal are the souls of people who've been violently killed for being Christians, apparently there weren't enough of them yet so they have to wait for vengeance. Breaking the sixth seal releases God's wrath on the world, 144,000 Jews are protected from the damage that the angels are given permission to perform.

The seventh seal just involves more damage and death on the earth, different disasters heralded by angels trumpeting before destroying a third of something like turning a third of the sea to blood and killing sea creatures.

Someone once explained Revelations as the picked on kid in the back of class who writes stories about all the people who were mean to him getting burned down in the school. I've never actually read it, but all I can think when I do hear about it is it seems so petty.

Revelation is the book in the Bible least understood by most people who read the Bible (including myself). I am currently in an in-depth study group of this book and can say that the only way to understand the book is to understand Old Testament symbolism. When you understand the connection between OT symbols and Revelation, the books comes alive as a book meant to inspire believers to perservere, even in the midst of great tribulation and persecution. It is not a book that quenches a need for revenge..we do not want revenge (remember we are taught to forgive, "seven times seven" said Jesus). So far in my study, I can say that this book gives me the understanding that peace will come upon the earth, but sadly more pain will come first. So I respond by: Yes Lord, in my pain I will perservere. I will hold on tight to you, because there will be a day of joy"
