Lion or Lamb?
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
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
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
So when is this going to happen? That says that the second return of Christ will be after 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.
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.
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
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
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.
Rev 22:1 proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Rev 22:3 but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it:
You are looking for a lion, you· get a dead Lamb. If this is/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.
