Scripture, when read rightly, will lead us to worship.
Why does John weep loudly at the prospect of the scroll remaining unopened? Look to the rest of Scripture.
The scroll in Ezekiel and the scroll in Daniel. Unfolding human history at the decree of God.
Writing on both sides of the scroll. Every last space was required for God’s decrees for the unfolding of human history. If the scroll would not open, human history could not unfold at God’s decree. What if there is no larger purpose for the days in which we live? John weeps at the prospect of a universe separated from its Creator.
