HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“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.” Revelation 5:6
“And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.” Revelation 5:11-12
The Lamb of God is the center of this mystic and glowing book of Revelation.
There is the Lamb with His wounds — the Lamb that was slain. Even in Heaven, He carries those scars of His passion and death. Even in Heaven, I shall be perpetually reminded that I owe everything to Calvary and to Him who was both Victor and Victim there!
There is the Lamb in His royalty — the Lamb in the center of the Throne. The Head that once was crowned with sharp thorns — is crowned with regal glory now! I rejoice in it for Christ’s sake. I rejoice in it for my own sake, for what is there which He cannot do for me — His little one? Over the world of nature and men, over unseen principalities and powers — He rules that He may befriend my soul.
There is the Lamb with His guardianship of His own — the Lamb shall lead them. To all eternity He will shepherd me, feed me, protect me, uphold me! I shall never be able to dispense with Him. I shall never wish to stand alone, outside His keeping and His care. Through the everlasting years, I shall avow myself my dear Lord’s debtor.
There is the Lamb in His triumphs — the Lamb shall overcome them. So, one day, I shall see all my enemies routed and dead. One happy day, I shall be entirely freed from the antagonism and harassment of my sins. He who is for me is mightier than the hosts arrayed against me!
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise!”
