Rev 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
Rev 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?
Rev 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
Rev 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
Rev 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. (KJV)

The Father had withdrawn the octal's closure from upon Christ when He was on the cross, so that Christ found Himself with only the K4 closure of His own person, the "word made flesh" as it were. (I.e. in the disjunction of virtue forming the octal, u-1 became "r" and v-1 became "s".)

So, we would expect the mirror of this to resound in the heavenlies, and we see this also present in the "lamb" as slain before the throne - a "placeholder" for Christ: not a mere substitute for He Himself, but a pure lamb slain in heaven for the sins of all as with the death of Christ, yet forever remaining alive. That seven eyed, seven horned lamb is the very image of the Father Himself, for I read:

Joh 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. (KJV)

And this lamb is the Father glorifying Christ with the Father's own self. Christ's inheritance is to be always as God, equal to the Father - an inheritance due the only one that may open the book of life with its seven seals.

Christ's sacrifice fulfilled the law of the sacrifice for the sins of Israel for one year (a cycle of the octal) multiplied out by a factor of 1000 as for the patience of God's grace over His chosen elect dwelling in Christ as the unity. Alternatively the lamb (the same Jesus) was slain for a "day" of 1000 years factored by a week of seven in the Holy Spirit, as simply seven days equalled to a "day with the Lord is as a thousand years" etc.

John wept because the lamb, the (visible) Christ was certainly slain (as forever) and so appeared to be completely absent from His rightful place in Heaven. That Jesus was present to show Himself worthy to open the book, being without sin, is enough for Christ to be revealed God; as able to reveal Himself as that lamb, rather than the lamb merely substituting for Him. That equivalence of the Father's holiness found in that seven eyed, seven horned lamb to Christ (as God's only begotten) was a surety, but the "lamb" is "the word" in that it as virtue is absolute and found also only in Christ.

The lamb becomes equal to every expectation of the "word made flesh", and was slain in heaven; forever stood upright in Christ's place until He would be shown not only raised but glorified and so take His rightful place on the judgement seat after opening all seven seals.

In moving God and He being revealed "as just as holy" or "as perfect", being the lamb (an equivalent - yet now raised to life) The requirements of the law are all fulfilled and the risen Christ forever atones for the sins of Israel.

The three days Christ was in the earth, the same lamb (as slain) certainly took His necessary place: (at least for that duration) because there is the verse:

Joh 20:17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. (KJV)

Those three days are the figure of the static subgroup of the octal become Christ sat at the right hand of God. Christ alone as GF(4) could open the last three seals and "float" the unity through that static subgroup.

Jesus, has the victory: Although it is clear His Father raised Himself back to life, Jesus and the Father are revealed as one! (Whilst the Father prepared Him to be accepted before all in the heavenlies, fulfilling His credentials as the Son of God.) In opening the seven seals, Jesus moves the Father from His place and takes his rightful place as the most Holy.
