Chapters 4 and 5 form a unit. In chapter 4 we see the throne with the One on it. Then we see the Holy Spirit as lamps of fire. In chapter 5 we see the scroll and learn why John was concerned that no one was found who could open it.
The sealed scroll
No man was found
Why did John weep?
Where was the Lamb seen and why?
The song was new
Searching for meaning in the seals
Reigning over the earth
In, around, and away from the throne
Classes of wicked ones
Next chapter, 6
