The scroll reveals that there is definite progressive plan to the fullness of victory of Jesus on the earth. 
3 sets of 7, which typifies fullness, are revealed in the scroll. 
These 3 sets show the outworking of the plan of the Father to cleanse the earth of Satan, the demonic kingdom, the Anti-Christ, and all in allegiance to the Anti-Christ. 
These 3 sets describe the dynamics of the church age and the Day of the Lord which was prophesied about in the Old Testament. 
Psalm 2:8-9
Hermeneutic Encouragements:
1. Proleptic: Statement of reality now that is actually in the future. 
2. Fulfillments without Consummation.
3. Recapitulate: Cyclical nature of prophetic literature.
7 Seals: Open the Scroll and describe the church age. 
1. Revelation 6:1-2
The White Horse. He has a bow, but no arrows are mentioned (year of favor and grace). A crown is given to him. He goes forth conquering and to conquer.
2. Revelation 6:3-4
The Red Horse. War. That they should take peace from the earth. He has a great sword.
3. Revelation 6:5-6
The Black Horse. Famine. A day's wages for a day's food. Hurt not the oil and the wine. 
4. Revelation 6:7-8
The Pale Horse. Death. One fourth of the earth's population is killed. Hell followed with him. Kill with the sword, and with the hunger, and with death, and with the beasts.
5. Revelation 6:9-11
Martyrdom. They that were slain for the Word of God and for their testimony. They are gien white robes and told to wait for full number. 
6. Revelation 6:12-17
Great Earthquake. The sun black and moon as blood. The stars of heaven (angels) fell. Heaven departed as a scroll. Every mountain and island was moved. Multitudes hid. The great day of His wrath is come. This is the Day of the Lord described in the Old Testament. 
7. Revelation 8:1
Silence in Heaven. About the space of half an hour. 
7 Trumpets

Hail and fire mingled with blood. 
A third part of the trees burned up. All green grass burned up. 
2. Rev 8:8-9
A Great Mountain burning with fire cast into the sea. 
A third part of the sea became blood. 
3. Rev 8:10-11

4. Rev 8:12
Third part of the sun, moon, and stars smitten.
The day and the night shone not for a third part of it. 
5. Rev 9:1-12
First woe. Locusts. A star from heaven (an angel) was given the key to the bottomless pit. The pit opened. Locusts came upon the earth. They hurt men (they sting them) that do not have the seal of God in their foreheads for five months. 
6. Rev 9:13-21
Second woe. Loose the four angels bound in the river Euphrates. A third part of men were killed. The army of the horsemen was two hundred million. People repented not. Second woe is past Rev 11:14
7. Rev 10:7, Rev 11:15-19
Third woe. When he shall begin to sound, the Mystery of God should be finished. The kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord. He shall reign. Thy wrath is come. The temple of God opened in heaven. Lightning, Voices, Thunderings, an Earthquake, and Great Hail. This is the return of Jesus, the last Trumpet prophesied in 1 Cor. 15:52.
7 Bowls

Great heat. Vial poured out upon the sun. Men scorched with great heat.

Darkness. Vial poured out upon the seat of the beast. His kingdom is full of darkness; they gnawed their tongues for pain. 
6. Rev 16:12
Euphrates River. The Euphrates River dries up.
7. Rev 16:17-21 
It is done. Voices, thunders, lightnings, and the greatest earthquake. Jerusalem divided into three parts. The cities of the nations fell. Every island fled away. The mountains were not found. There was great hail. 
I believe that one of the reasons that we have the order is so that we can pray and prophesy in the right order for these to be released upon the enemy. 
Rev 5:8
Rev 8
