“Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.” Rev 5:6
The Lord has been stirring my heart with a desire to understand Jesus as the Lamb of God standing,”looking as if slain” in the center of the throne……
Every time I would look at a painting of the Jesus as the Lamb He was gentle and kind, which are TRUE about Jesus but my heart would wonder where is the warrior bridegroom coming to rescue and save!!
I sought the Lord about it and God began to answer my questions, not in language, but in imagery as He unveiled Revelation 5:6-14,
“He came and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song:
“You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased men for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation.
You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they will reign on the earth.”
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they sang:
“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!”
The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.”
Jesus You ARE beautiful and worthy of ALL praise & honor & glory & power give us the GRACE to fall more in love with You! To Seek the depths of Your heart!
