My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Revelation 5

The Lamb

Then there was this scroll, and I cried because no-one could open it. But then an elder told me that the pride of Judah could.

Then there was a lamb, looking as if it had been slain.

It stood in the centre and had seven eyes and seven horns. He took the scroll and they all bowed and praised the lamb. Then there were millions of angels worshipping the lamb, and then everything in all creation that could praised the lamb and God.

Key verse:
6. Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne

My thoughts:
Ah, this is very cool. Jesus is the lamb who had been slain. He is on the throne with God, and is worthy of all praise. He is slain for us. He purchased people for God.

In this one picture of heaven, John sees all that is important in all of the Universe. By seeing it he understands the sacrifice the lamb made. He sees the praise God and the lamb deserve.

There are so many sweet Godsongs in this chapter. Good times.

Now we get to see what's going on in that scroll! w00t!

The lamb ain't so pretty when you think too hard about it.
