5 Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” 3 And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, 4 and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. 5 And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”
6 And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 And he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne. 8 And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, reach holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang a new song, saying,
“Worthy are you to take the scroll
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,
10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”
11 Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
14 And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

The Humiliation Of Jesus
I continue on on my week of being intimate with Jesus at the cross and find that I cannot smell the stench of sin. I ask Jesus but He says nothing. There is no stench and I begin to realize that Jesus is God and He has no sin and though He has taken in all the sin for all time, it’s like a PH balance. Sin was neutralized at the cross and I continue in intimate communion with Jesus. I hold His blood stained hand like I did His blood stained feet and I kiss His hand that the nail was driven in and in my cries and tears I throw my face right into His hand and my face is covered by the blood of the Lamb. Soaked. There was a lot of blood. The blood of the New and Everlasting Covenant. I continue talking to Jesus. I cry out to my Father in heaven and the Holy Spirit. Yet, in this holy ground where Jesus lay and me down on my knees, face drowned in His hand, there is a peace. My hurting shoulders cease to hurt. I call for more to join me but there is just Jesus and me.
