Lion of the tribe of Judah
But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.



a. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah: One of the elders (not an angel) rescues John from his grief, showing him the one who has prevailed to open the scroll. The one is the great figure of Old Testament prophecy: the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, Messiah of Israel and of the Gentiles.

Re: Lion of the tribe of Judah
I love Jesus.....looking forward to seeing Him and being there with Him someday.....until then, I hope to do no violence....but, I am compelled to "arm up" since there may be possessed individuals out there that will do great harm unless some of us step up and protect.....especially the innocent...the elderly and the children.

Re: Lion of the tribe of Judah
Ruth 3:7 And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.
8 And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.
9 And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.
Note the time that she presents herself as his bride: midnight. The wise and foolish virgins are aware of this “midnight” announcement. Apparently some time passes, as the foolish virgins stumble over themselves trying to figure out what’s going on. And in the story of Ruth, it was the next day that affairs were sorted out, and Boaz claimed himself as her redeemer.
One must understand in the O.T. law, a kinsman could redeem property lost, and “buy” it back for the one who lost it. Israel (Naomi) has indeed lost her property, and Christ paid the price to buy it back, and in the process gets a gentile bride.

Ruth 3:12 And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I.
13 Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman´s part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, as the LORD liveth: lie down until the morning.
14 And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor.
Notice she “rose up” in the morning. In the book of Revelation, this is the point at which John sees an open door, and is told to “come up hither”……….this is the rapture, and the midnight call, which preceeds it. This happens at the end of the barley harvest, just before the start of the wheat harvest. Follow on, because there is more about this kinsman-redeemer in the book of Revelation.

Ruth 3:15 Also he said, Bring the vail that thou hast upon thee, and hold it. And when she held it, he measured six measures of barley, and laid it on her: and she went into the city.
16 And when she came to her mother in law, she said, Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.
17 And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law.
18 Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.
Note, above, we are talking about “barley”, and the end of the “barley” harvest. Also notice that Naomi says “who art thou?”. She doesn’t even recognize her. A change had come over her.
We now go to the part where the kinsman redeemer, appears before the elders of the city to have his right to redeem “witnessed”.

Ruth 4:1 Then went Boaz up to the gate, and sat him down there: and, behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz spake came by; unto whom he said, Ho, such a one! turn aside, sit down here. And he turned aside, and sat down.
2 And he took ten men of the elders of the city, and said, Sit ye down here. And they sat down.
3 And he said unto the kinsman, Naomi, that is come again out of the country of Moab, selleth a parcel of land, which was our brother Elimelech´s:
4 And I thought to advertise thee, saying, Buy it before the inhabitants, and before the elders of my people. If thou wilt redeem it, redeem it: but if thou wilt not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know: for there is none to redeem it beside thee; and I am after thee. And he said, I will redeem it.
5 Then said Boaz, What day thou buyest the field of the hand of Naomi, thou must buy it also of Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance.
6 And the kinsman said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: redeem thou my right to thyself; for I cannot redeem it.
7 Now this was the manner in former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbor: and this was a testimony in Israel.
8 Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.
The ten elders of the city witness the negotiations over who will be able to redeem Naomi’s property (Israel’s inheritance), and take Ruth as bride. The “nearer” kinsman, cannot do this for it would “mar” his own inheritance. Some say the nearer kinsman is National Israel, or God the Father who will “re-marry Israel”, or whatever. This leaves only Boaz who can redeem the property and take the bride.
Now, let us go over to the book of Revelation:
Just after John is called up (Ruth “rose up”) he sees this scene in heaven:

Rev 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
Directly after John (and Ruth) “rise up”, there is this scene in heaven, and John is told “these things will happen HEREAFTER”
Hhhhmmmmmm…..we see “twenty four elders” SEATED.
Did not Boaz tell the elders in the story of Ruth to “SIT DOWN”???
And, after some descriptions of the marvels in heaven, what happens?

Rev 5:1 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.
2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5 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.
6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
Here, in heaven, is exactly what happened the morning after Ruth “rose up”. The elders are seated, and negotiations are held over “who is worthy” to take the scroll with the seals. By the way, the scroll represents the “title deed” to redeem what Israel lost, and also to acquire the bride, for we see the bride presented later in the book of Revelation. The seals, when a kinsman redeemer takes over, may be opened by that kinsman-redeemer only, which seals give the details of the redemption process, or how the redemption will take place.
We also see, like in Ruth’s story, that no-one else could be found to open this redemption scroll (which is why John cried bitterly) and open its seals, until………..indeed the Lamb of God, Christ our Lord, is found “worthy” to take the book, just like Boaz was found “worthy” to take upon himself to redeem Naomi’s land, and receive Ruth as a bride.
