Seven Seals of the Book of Revelation

The Jewish Marriage Covenant – the Ketubah

The Jewish marriage covenant is known as the Ketubah. It records the virtue of the Bride and the responsibilities of the Bridegroom. It is a scroll written on both sides, witnessed by seven witnesses, each provides his “signature” or “seal” on the scroll. The Ketubah is only to be read by the Bridegroom to his Bride, before the consummation of the marriage. It is to affirm the Bride of her virtue.

The Ketubah can only be opened when the seven seals are broken, one at a time by the Bridegroom with the Bride beside him. Yeshua, the “Lion of the tribe of Judah” is the Bridegroom.

With this understanding of the Jewish marriage, Revelation Chapter 5:5, attests that only the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, qualifies to open the seven seals and to affirm the virtue of His Bride. This brings us to an interesting conclusion that after the seventh seal is opened, the Bride will be in heaven in the bosom of her Bridegroom.

The question we need to ask ourselves is, do you have the virtue and qualities to be the Bride of Yeshua?
