Revelation 5:1-5,12 Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”… 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!”

The imagery of majesty and supremacy continues in today’s chapter with God holding the scroll that refers to what is to come, then a question asked by a mighty angel about who is worthy to open the scroll and the answer coming from a lamb! In all the might, splendour, power and majesty of heaven, what’s a little lamb doing there? Should it not be Jesus?

One of the realities of the christian faith is that we are to the world nothing but a broken set of people who admit failure and defeat and operate in God’s strength alone. We are not a clan of intelligent, strong and wealthy people who have been chosen to fit God’s standards and furthermore what we become after God transforms us is for His glory and not ours.

To save us from our brokenness and poverty in spirit, God sent His own and only son Jesus Christ to come into this earth in simple human form, live a life of absolute simplicity, show us that only He could meet the requirements of the law and finally was sacrificed like the perfect sacrifice that could atone for every human’s sin.

This was the Lamb of God that took away the sins of the entire world by taking the curse of human sin on Himself and dying on the cross of Calvary for no fault of His. This lamb was raised up by God after 3 days and seated on God’s right-hand side to one day judge the living and the dead. This Lamb is the one who is worthy to open the scroll of God.

As we realize the significance of Jesus in our lives, I pray that we along with the countless hosts of heaven are able to sing praises unto Jesus’ name for only He is worthy!

In His Loving Service,

John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
  1. Well, this is another post from you (from Jesus through you! 🙂 that has me in tears. As you describe what we are to the world . . .yes. That is who we are. And I’m afraid there is such a striving among us to not be seen that way. But that is how He is shown so worthy and wonderful. Our Lamb Reigns! God bless you! your sis in Christ, deb

      With you, I am tearing just witnessing God’s glory day by day and moment by moment. When I heard back from you, I just cried out and praised God for only He is worthy of being praised. I know the world laughs at us because they think we are blind and obsessed in our faith but if only they knew the object of our obsession and what He has done for us will they begin to appreciate our stance. Praying that God reigns supreme in your life today and forever!
      In Christ,

  2. Vineet, I was behind in my reading, but just got caught up with your posts. You are doing a great job with Revelation! It is a book of imagery that many have a hard time grasping, and you have gotten to the heart of what it means for our daily faith walk. Peace, Linda

      Thank you for your words of encouragement. I started this journey with skepticism because I was concerned that I would not do God justice in explaining His word but over the course of time, I have realized that it is not me but He who reveals His word to us and it is He who gives us the wisdom to share with the world and therefore there is no condemnation in serving Him. I just pray that I will stay faithful to a God who is so faithful and loving to us.
      In Christ,
