The sealed scroll (i.e. the book of Revelation) is a book of prophecies that will be fulfilled at the end of the age (Hb 2:2-3).

Both the Old (Is 29:9-14) and New Testaments (Rv 5) make references to a sealed scroll. The sealed scroll in the Old Testament was fulfilled at Jesus’ first coming (Jn 19:30), but the sealed scroll in the New Testament is fulfilled at Jesus’ second coming (Rv 21:6). The sealed scroll awaits an appointed time (Hb 2:2-3); before the appointed time, no one in heaven, on earth, or under the earth is able to know what it contains. Anyone who claims to know the content of the sealed scroll before the appointed time is a liar and a false pastor. That person is simply trying to deceive God’s people with obvious lies. Anyone who claims to know the mysteries of God’s scroll without having received the revelation that is sealed with seven seals, is he not an obvious liar sent by Satan.

In regard to the sealed scroll of the Old Testament, God came into the world and opened the sealed scroll when his chosen people were captured by gentiles (Ez 1-3). God gave the opened scroll to the son of man and commanded him to go and deliver its message. These prophecies were fulfilled through Jesus at the time of his first coming (Mt 15:24). Jesus, who received the revelation from God, declared, “No one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him,” (Mt 11:27). Jesus also said, “Now this is eternal life – that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you sent,” (Jn 17:3). These prophecies, which were to be fulfilled at the end of Physical Israel, found their physical fulfillment in Jesus.

The book of Revelation in the New Testament contains the events that will be fulfilled at the end of Spiritual Israel. God gives the sealed scroll to Jesus. After taking the sealed scroll, Jesus breaks the seals and fulfills the scroll according to its prophecies. Afterwards, Jesus gives the opened scroll to the promised pastor through an angel. Jesus also directs his promised pastor to deliver his message to a specific place—the place where God’s chosen people are captured by gentiles (Rv 5-10). No one knows the only true God except Jesus, the promised pastor who receives the opened scroll from Jesus, and those to whom the promised pastor wishes to give the revelation. Only when people know the only true God, Jesus, and the one who overcomes—the promised pastor who comes in the name of the Lord—will they attain eternal life (Jn 14, 16, 17:3; Rv 2-3).

We in Shinchonji have received the opened scroll from heaven and have been testifying about the physical fulfillment of Revelation. Come and see!
