“Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying: ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.’”
Jesus is a strong lamb; He is a searching lamb. He is omnipotent. He is omniscient. He is the searching Lamb; He knows what you’re thinking about at this very moment. He sees every move you make. He is the sovereign Lamb. He and He alone is the secret of history.
If you were to ask Him, “What right do you have to take that scroll”? He would say, “I have the right of creation. I made it all, and I have the right of Calvary. I died; I shed my blood for it, and I have the right on conquest. I was raised from the dead. I have the right to take this book and to open it, for I AM the great I AM who was born a Lamb.” Mary’s Lamb is sovereign God.
You’ve seen the Lamb in prophecy, you’ve seen the Lamb in history, you’ve seen the Lamb in victory, but now see the Lamb in majesty. Mary had a little Lamb; His fleece was white as snow. Worthy is the Lamb. He is exclusively worthy, exceedingly worthy, and eternally worthy.
Take a moment today to celebrate Jesus for who He is, from before the manger, to His life on Earth, to His death and resurrection and the victory to come.
