Revelation Chapter 5 : 2

Revelation 5:2 – Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”

Here we meet the first of three “strong” or “mighty” angels. Some speculate that Gabriel is the first strong angel because of his instruction to Daniel to seal up the prophecy given to him (Daniel 8). Gabriel also prophesied of the birth of the Kinsman Redeemer of the sealed scroll (Luke 1:26-38). The strong angel here in Revelation is looking for someone qualified to unseal this prophetic scroll. This angel’s loud, or great voice, shows that his petition is important.

We will see later in Revelation 5:7 that “Him who sat on the throne” offers the scroll to anyone worthy to open this “purchase deed” to the earth. Identifying who is worthy to open the scroll goes back to the kinsman redeemer, as discussed in the last section. Based on the accounts in Leviticus 25, Jeremiah 32, and Ruth 4, only a close relative can act as a redeemer of land. Therefore, only a worthy relative of Adam, the original landlord of the earth, can loosen or break the seals of the “purchase deed,” and redeem the earth. In Revelation 5:9, we will learn who is worthy to open this scroll.

“Strong angel”: The identity of this angel is uncertain, but it may refer to the angel Gabriel, whose name means “strength of God” (Daniel 8:16).

I believe the reason a “strong angel” is mentioned here is to show that all the earthly and heavenly strength, aside from God’s, cannot open this book or these seals.

The “loud voice” is as if the angel is calling out to see who will come forth to open the book.
