“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29 NKJV)
The Spirit of God was all over John the Baptist. The first time he met Jesus was in the womb of his mother and Jesus was in the womb of his mother. The Bible tell us he leapt inside his mother’s womb when they first met. John knew by the Spirit who Jesus really was.
John was busy proclaiming the coming Messiah when he ran into Jesus twice. He did not call him by his given name. He pointed him out by saying:
“BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD!” Today, take time to stop. BEHOLD. LOOK. KNOW THE LAMB OF GOD!
Do you know the book of Revelation is not about the end of time as much as it is about the Revelation of Jesus Christ? It is about the uncovering and making known Jesus. Do you know that the word “Jesus” only appears twelve times in Revelation, but the word “Lamb” is mentioned twenty-six times in reference to Jesus? Jesus was, is and will always be the Savior, but the Lamb was the payment for our sins. In 1 Peter 1:18-19 the Bible says we are “redeemed…with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
Jesus is our payment. In Revelation Jesus is…
The Lamb Who was standing, as though He had been slain. (5:6)
The Lamb Who was Worthy to take the book and open the seal. (5:3 & 6:1)
The Lamb Who was, is, and will always be worshipped with harps, and songs and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. (5:8)
The Lamb, Who is Worthy that, was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. (5:12)
The Lamb who every creature proclaims: Blessing, and honor and glory and power, forever! (5:13)
The Lamb who is Salvation (7:9-10)
The Lamb who washes the saints of the Great Tribulation robes white with His blood. (7:14)
The Lamb Who is the Shepherd. (7:17)
The Lamb Who leads us to the living fountains of water. (7:17)
The Lamb Who empowers us to overcome by his blood and by the word of our testimony. (12:11)
The Lamb who was slain from the foundation of the world. (13:8)
The Lamb Whose songs goes like this: “Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true [are] thy ways, thou King of saints.” (15:3)
The Lamb Who overcomes for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: the Lamb Who says that they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. (17:14)
The Lamb Who Says: “Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.” (19.9)
The Lamb Who along with the Lord God Almighty are the temple in the great city. (21.22)
The Lamb Who is the Light. (21:23)
The Lamb Who flows forth a pure crystal clear, river of water of life. (22:1)
I enCOURAGE you to focus on the Lamb of God, the Sacrificial Lamb who took our place and died for us! Worth is the Lamb! Glory to the Lamb! Thank you, Most Precious Lamb! Fall down before the Lamb and worship. Join with the Revelation 5 choir of the four living creatures, the twenty-four elders, the angels, the ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, and every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, and me.
Sing a new song to Him who sits on the throne and say with a loud voice,
“You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.” (Rev 9 :10)
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!” (Rev 5:12)
“Blessing and honor and glory and power to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!” (Rev 5:13) AMEN.
