Worthy Is the Lamb

So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.

Revelation 5:4

 

It takes me awhile sometimes to figure some stuff out, and one of the first things that catches my attention in this verse is that John is “weeping much”. I have preached, believed, and said for a long time there is no crying in heaven, but maybe there is. I know this -  that this verse has made me step back and do some more thinking about “God wiping away our tears” in heaven.

In chapter five verse one we are told that God, who is sitting on His throne in heaven, has a scroll in His right hand and it is sealed with seven seals. We know it is very important for several reasons: the number of seals, it being in God’s right hand, and it being in GOD’s HAND.

 

No one is found worthy except the “Lion of Judah” which turned out to be a slain lamb. Everybody agrees pretty quickly that the Lion/Lamb is Jesus, and that He is worthy to take the scroll, open it, and read it, but nobody agrees on what is inside the scroll.

 

I am not sure what is in the book/scroll either. To tell you the truth, I started writing this email yesterday but stopped to read some more about the scroll. Here it is 24 hours later and I have come to the conclusion that I still don’t know. Yes, I think the scroll is very important. It had to be to be in God’s hand (control), His right hand (power), and to be sealed with seven seals (perfect and complete). We will not know what the scroll had in it until we get to heaven like John did. Important or more important than the scroll is our SAVIOR, THE LION AND LAMB is Jesus!

 

I think we also miss the message in this chapter by focusing on the kind of scroll, when I think it is more about the truth that the ONE WORTHY of worship is Jesus, and He is being WORSHIPED!

 

Do you really believe Jesus is worthy of Worship? Are you worshiping Jesus as if you believe He is Worthy?

 

Join me this Sunday as we continue our messages in Revelation. This Sunday’s message will be “WORTHY IS THE LAMB” and our text is Revelation 5:1-14.
