The book that was sealed is the Lamb's book of life slain from the foundation of the world. Now I must point out the seventh seal is not taken off
Re 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Above is when the seventh seal is taken off and this is the great Judgement scene.
Re 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of
The question is, is your name witten there on the page white and fair.
I will make one more comment here and that is, notice the fourth seal is the last invitation to "come and see". Why? Only one reason is apparent,
after that it is too late to "come and see".
The four sore judgements of God are introduced.
Re 6:7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
Re 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over
the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. ( compare next verse, a
little different way of expressing it )
Eze 14:21 For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome
beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
This should add some more to think about.
We must be careful to not run ahead of His Prophecy, each is revealed in it's time and is made clear when it is time.
