At this time John is viewing, as a spectator, the events unfolding in heaven. Revelation 5:1-5 details what happened next:
"And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof."
Only Jesus was found to be able to open the seven sealed book, for He alone is worthy. What is in the book? The judgments of God. The first set of judgments will be the Seven Sealed Judgments, followed by the Seven Trumpet Judgments, and lastly, the Seven Bowl Judgments.
