Welcome to my online blog for our Vineyard Life Journal!
This forum IS NOT for debate or to correct each other, but to share our insights and observations. (Actually, I will be keeping a pretty tight rein on the comments section, and I will have the ability to block trolls, spammers or those who just want to stir the pot.)
Before you comment or read what I have posted, read today’s passages for yourself and complete your own S.O.A.P. exercise… (If you read mine first, it may taint what you think.)

Here is my SOAP for today, Friday, December 28, 2018
Revelation 5:2 “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” 3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. 4 I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. 5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
13 “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”
Revelation 6 six seals opened…
Revelation 7 “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”
Revelation 8 the seventh seal opened, silence in heaven. Angels sounding trumpets.
Revelation 9 more angels sounding trumpets, and the plagues released.
Here’s the real question; Revelation 5:2 “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?”
Here is the answer; Revelation 5:12, “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”
Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He is able to release me from my sin unto salvation and he is able to do that for all who call upon his name.
At some point, those plagues on the earth will happen, assuming the Bible is true… It’s not going to be a pretty sight. The entire world will be thrown into chaos, death and destruction…
We just have to remember that the Lamb of God is worthy, and able.
Jude 24 “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.”
