Lion or Lamb?


Written By: Diane Ebaugh Sutton  |  Year First Published: 2020

John in Revelation looked for someone who could open the book. No one could, so he cried. But an elder told him the lion of the tribe of Judah, could open the book. But what he saw was a lamb broken.

Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Who said that? The elders.

Revelation 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and thinking and blessing.

The elders were wrong.

Let’s talk about this. When Jesus was on the cross, he took the sins of the world.

Go ahead, count up your sins. Bet they don’t amount to the sins Jesus had, when he took on the sins of the world.

This was a dead Lamb. Not a risen Christ. This means that Jesus was found worthy before he was manifested, or glorified. Never in this chapter does John talk about a resurrected Christ. Only a Lamb that was slain.

You are also found worthy, before your manifestation. Before you have a glorified body, you are worthy. While you are broken, you are worthy.

It is not my righteousness, but his righteousness. Philippians 3:9 And be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

Before he had the power of the resurrection, he was found worthy, to receive, power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and thinking and blessing. You are worthy to receive all this stuff too.

Let’s find the silver lining. What is a dead lamb? Answer, meat! When Jesus comes and opens the book and breaks the seals, you will get a great meal! The banquet! This is not milk. This is meat!

Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

You see, the Lamb is meat, and the Lamb will feed us meat!  Lions eat meat. Lambs eat grass.

Revelation 6:16 says hide from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.

So when is this going to happen? That says that the second return of Christ will be during the tribulation, when the other guys get God’s wrath.

Revelation 7:14 These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

That was just another confirmation concerning timing.

Revelation 10:1 And I saw another mighty angel

Revelation 10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth:

This is an angel that is roaring. Not the Lamb.

Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.

They overcame the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan. Verse 12:9

I think the Lamb is still bleeding. Because they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb. This is something that is happening now.

  1. Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion

This is a Lamb not a Lion.

Revelation 14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man,

That is Jesus on a cloud.

Revelation 15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb

That is a Lamb not a Lion.

Revelation 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

That is a Lamb not a Lion.

Revelation 21:14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Lamb not Lion.

Revelation 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light there of.

Lamb not Lion.

Revelation 21:27 but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Lamb.

Rev 22:1 proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Lamb

Rev 22:3 but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it:

Lamb.

Now here is a beautiful picture of Christ. Rev 19:11-16 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

Now I want you to look at this picture. His vesture is dipped in blood. Blood has a shelf life of 42 days. I believe he is still bleeding. He is still cleansing us with his blood.

You are looking for a Lion, you get a Lamb. If this was good enough for God, I believe it is good enough for us.

Don’t use your lack of manifestation as a mode of procrastination. Go get your destiny.

Stop looking for Jesus to come back with the attitude of a Lion. He comes back with the attitude of a Lamb. That is the same mistake they made last time. And a lot of people missed him because of it.

 

Forever in His Love,

Summary: There are many more verses for this study. These are just a few that I chose

This Present Unpleasantness

The Beast in Revelation
7 heads + 7 continents
10 horns = 10 men who run the United Nations 

Revelation 17:10
1. George W Bush
2. Clinton
3. Bush Sr
4. Ronald Reagan
5. Carter
6. Ford
7. Nixon
At the time the Twin Towers fell these men were all alive.
This gives us a time frame. 

Isaiah 30:25 
And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of  waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 

Even when the Twin Towers in New York fell. God was still good to us.  

Psalm 94:14 
For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance. 

Psalm 91 – The TV show Hogans Heroes was based on true history. It was from a movie called  “The Great Escape”. The story is of Keith Argrave. He used to recite Psalm 91 and was always  protected from harm.  
We can do the same. (This is an example of faith in God. Not my canned goods in the basement,  iodide in my closet, gun in my purse, etc.) 
Yes he carried a gun. Yes he was trained in warfare. But his faith was in God. Don’t let your  preparations become a Nehushtan. You can prepare if you want to. Just keep your faith in God. 

Isaiah 30:18 
And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be  exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all  they that wait for him.  

Isaiah 31:1 
Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because  they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy  One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
It doesn’t really matter what our President does or does not do. (Politics) God is sovereign.  

Daniel had a dream, a beast like a lion, a bear, a leopard, and a beast with ten horns. (The  United Nations is run by 10 men). There is a big fight. Daniel 7:18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.  Daniel 7: 27 And the kingdom and dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole  heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is a everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. 7:28 This is the end of the  matter. So once again we read the last verse and we win! 

I believe the next war, may be pockets of war here and there and pockets of people living in  relative peace. This is the Battle of Jehoshaphat. It would be nice if this next war was  another cold war. During the Cold War no shots were fired and still the Berlin Wall came down.  With God all things are possible. American troops liberated Kuwait in 100 hours during Desert Storm, this is unheard of.  This war started June 7, 1967. 

Isaiah 30:15 
For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in  quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: 

After the Battle of Jehoshaphat comes Armageddon. This will be a release of 6 plagues.  We are presently already there. Cancer, Aids, Mrsa and Ebola, Corona and Delta. There might  be an overlap in time. We might be at the end of the Battle of Jehoshaphat, at the same time  we are at the beginning of Armageddon. 

Isaiah 32:3 
And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.  

Daddy Warbucks came out on top after going through the depression in the movie Annie. We  can and will be victorious! 

Isaiah 30:20 & 21 
And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not  thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:
21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye  turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.  

What is God’s goal for us? To be ruled by a Theocracy. This is when every man is his own boss.  When every man hears from God, himself. Instead of using a mediator. (Preacher) Read about  this in the book of Judges. 

The devil wants us to be ruled by a Caliphate. This is when you rat out your neighbor.

Isaiah 32:17 & 18
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and  assurance for ever. 
18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwelling, and in quiet  resting places: 

Jesus gave us the great commission. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons, raise  the dead and preach that the Kingdom of God is at hand.
Matthew 10:7  The Kingdom of God is righteousness peace and joy.
Romans 14:17 Do not go around preaching that the sky is falling! 

A lot of prophets go around teaching about the Phema camps, how bad the government is, this  conspiracy, that conspiracy, the Illuminati, the Bilderberg group, etc. That stuff may be true, a  lot of bad stuff may be on the horizon, maybe you can even see it. But we are not supposed to  dwell on that. Well what are we supposed to do? 

According to Strong’s, this word confederacy could have been translated conspiracy:

Isaiah 8:12 
Say ye not, A confederacy,(conspiracy) to all them to whom this people shall say, A  confederacy(conspiracy); neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.  

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,  whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely,  whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on  these things. 

Fear is not from the Lord, Don’t spread fear! If it is not from the Lord, than where is it from?  The opposite. Answer, the devil. There are a lot of verses in the Bible. Some prophecy a coming  war. But some prophecy winning that war. Focus on the winning.  

2 Chronicles 22:21 – 23 
And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that  should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went our before the army, and to say, Praise the  LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever. 
22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children  of Amon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.
23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly  to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhaitants of Seir, every one  helped to destroy another.  

All we have to do is sing and wait on the Lord the bad guys will kill each other. Like in the battle  of Jehoshaphat.  

and, 

Isaiah 30:29
Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as  when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel. 

Jeremiah 15:11
The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the  enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction. 

Jeremiah 14:20 & 21
And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall  fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee to save thee and to  deliver thee, saith the LORD. 
21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand  of the terrible.  

Jeremiah 30:4
And these are the words that the LORD, spake concerning Israel and concerning  Judah. 
5 For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask ye now,and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man  with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; BUT HE  SHALL BE SAVED OUT OF IT. 
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I WILL BREAK HIS YOKE  FROM OFF THY NECK, AND WILL BURST THY BONDS, and strangers shall no more serve  themselves of him: 
9 BUT THEY SHALL SERVE THE LORD THEIR GOD, AND DAVID THEIR KING, (Jesus) WHOM I WILL  RAISE UP UNTO THEM. 
10 THEREFORE FEAR THOU NOT, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O  Israel: for, lo, I WILL SAVE THEE FROM AFAR, AND THY SEED FROM THE LAND OF THEIR  CAPTIVITY; and Jacob shall return, AND SHALL BE IN REST, AND BE QUIET, AND NONE SHALL  MAKE HIM AFRAID. 
11 For I am with thee, saith the LORD, TO SAVE THEE; though I make a full end of all nations  whither I have scattered thee, YET WILL I NOT MAKE A FULL END OF THEE;  

Love,

I want to tell you about Paul…

I want to tell you about Paul. Paul was married to Eunice, her mother was Lois. He talks nice about them. He had a brother named Epaphroditus. Together Paul and Eunice had children. The Bible mentions 3. I think Timotheus is the long form of Timothy, so we have Timothy and Titus and Onesimus. Maybe more but that is all that I can find at this time.

TIMOTHY

1 Timothy 1:2  Unto Timothy, MY OWN SON, in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Timothy 1:18  This charge I commit unto thee, SON TIMOTHY, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare.

2 Timothy 1:2  To Timothy, MY DEARLY BELOVED SON: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

2 Timothy 2:1  Thou therefore, MY SON, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 2:19  But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you

Philippians 2:21  But ye know the proof of him, that, AS A SON WITH THE FATHER, he hath served with me in the gospel. (This refers to the above verse)

TITUS

Titus 1:4  To Titus, MINE OWN SON after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

ONESIMUS

Philemon 10  I beseech thee for MY SON ONESIMUS, whom I have begotten in my bonds. Verse 12  Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, MINE OWN BOWELS.

Paul was in, in house arrest. Paul’s wife Eunice came to visit him. Paul was in bonds. Paul was very glad to see his wife, and showed it, and they had a little surprise, several years after the older ones had grown. Onesimus. Eunice went to see Paul because she wanted to; no one made her make that trip. I believe Paul and Eunice were very much in love.

My biological father was also my spiritual father. He was the one that led me in the salvation prayer when I was 5 years old. Because we are on the same mission, this makes him my brother in spirit. The same goes for Paul and his family.

Philemon 16:  Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, BOTH IN THE FLESH, AND IN THE LORD?

Paul was responsible for Onesimus’s bills. He said he wouldn’t even squabble over the amount.

Philemon 18:  If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; 19   I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.

 

WIFE & MOTHER-IN-LAW

2 Timothy 1:7  When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.

That sounds to me like he is proud of his wife and her mom.

BROTHER

Philippians 2:25  Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you EPAPHRODITUS, MY BROTHER, and companion in labour,

Some of Paul’s letters are addressed like this.

Romans 1:7  To all that be in Rome

1 Corinthians 1:2 Unto the church of God which is a Corinth

Galatians 1:2 unto the churches of Galatia

Ephesians 1:1 to the saints which are at Ephesus

Philippians 1:1 to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi

Colossians 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse:

Do you see? When Paul writes to a group of people, he addresses them that way. But when he writes to or speaks about a family member, he addresses them that way.

Sometimes a family member goes to that church. For example:

Thessalonians 1:1  Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 1:1  and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth,

THORN

2 Corinthians 12:7  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

The church teaches this thorn is his eyesight.  I don’t think it was his eyesight because. Saul was struck blind by a bright light from heaven.

Acts 9:8  And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.

Ananias prayed for Saul and he was healed!

Acts 9:18  And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

I believe this was a good and complete healing, to say that Paul’s thorn was his eyesight, diminishes his healing miracle.

FYI Saul and Paul is the same guy.

Acts 13:9  Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost,

I think his thorn was either guilt for all the Christians he had tortured and killed when he was Saul or, his church. His church put him in prison several times. He was shipwrecked because of his government and arrested and put in jail. And finally killed by his government. The church had him arrested by his government.

 

LOVE,

Diane Ebaugh Sutton
