"And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are sealed till the time of the end." (verse 9)
This was said in reference to "times, times, and an half" (verse 7), the 3 1/2 year period of the great tribulation we see so often in Revelation. The time of the end.
The way I see it, the grand concluding events of the end are to remain sealed until the unsealing that we see in Revelation. Which unsealing has to do with Dan. 12; which has to do with the 3 1/2 years specified in Dan. 12...of which the antichrist is the main figure. The first seal in Revelation that is opened allows the antichrist, or the beast, to go forth.
The 3 1/2 years of the great tribulation are the time of the end. We have to have the antichrist on the scene before it can happen. He starts the series of events of the time of the end that will culminate with the second coming.
When God the Lamb says the time has come for the events of the end to begin, the first seal of Revelation will be opened. The Lamb alone, our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, as you said, and as Revelation says, opens the seals.
>> “And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are sealed till the time of the end.” (verse 9) <<
Equating this verse with delaying the “seals” in Revelation is just plain juvenile and silly. Everything in the Revelation but the “Thunders” is revealed!
The seals in Revelation are on Satan’s deed to planet Earth. Adam ceded that deed to Satan when he sinned, and therein lies Satan’s power on Earth. Opening those seals reveal the stages of Satan’s plans. Those plans span the time from the end of the apostolic power to the end of Satan’s rein.
The seals are the key to the entire 5th and sixth millennia in prophecy.
