In Revelation chapter 5, Jesus, the worthy Lion of the tribe of Judah, takes the seven-sealed scroll from the hand of his Father. It represents the forfeited title deed to planet Earth. Then Jesus, the slaughtered Lamb, begins to break the seals one at a time. As he does, events occur on earth that are part of the Great Tribulation. The saints of God are greatly persecuted during this time, but God is still in control and we can trust him.
