This is another section of the introduction of the Book of Revelation in the Spirit Filled Life Bible that I want to share with you as encouragement. All scripture referenced in these paragraphs are from the Book of Revelation.
“Nearly every title employed elsewhere in the New Testament to describe the divine-human nature and the redemptive work of Jesus is mentioned at least one time in Revelation. These, together with numerous additional titles, provide us with our only multidimensional unveiling of the present position, continuing ministry, and ultimate victory of the exalted Christ“.
“Although Jesus’ earthly ministry is telescoped between His Incarnation and Ascension in 12:5, Revelation asserts that the Son of God, as the Lamb, has completely finished His redemptive work (1:5,6). by His blood, sinners have been forgiven, cleansed (5:6,9; 7:14; 12:11), liberated (1:5), and made kings and priests (1:6; 5:10). All ensuing manifestations of His applied victory are based on His finished work on the Cross; hence, Satan has been defeated (12:7-12) and bound (20:1-3). Jesus, raised from the dead, is enthroned as absolute Sovereign over all creation (1:5; 2:27). He is “King of Kings” and “Lord of Lord’s” (17:14; 19:16), and is entitled to the same ascriptions of adoration as God the Creator (5:12-14)”.
“The only One who is worthy to execute God’s eternal purpose is the Lion of Judah, who is not a political Messiah but a sacrificed Lamb (5:,6). “The Lamb” is His primary title, utilized 28 times in Revelation. As the One who has conquered, He has the rightful authority and the power to control all the forces of evil and their consequences for His purposes of judgment and Salvation (6:1–7:17). The Lamb is on the throne (4:1–5:14; 22:3)”.
” The Lamb, as “One like the Son of Man” (1:13; 14:14), is always in the midst of His people (1:9–3:22; 14:1) whose names are recorded in His Book of Life (3:5; 21:27). He knows us intimately, and with immeasurable holy love, He watches over, protects, disciplined, and challenges us. We share fully in His present and future victory (17:14;19:11-16; 21:1– 22:5), as well as in Hiss present and future marriage supper (19:7-9; 21:2). He dwells in us (1:13), and we dwell in Him (21:22)”.
” As “One like the Son of Man,” He also is the Lord of the final harvest (14:14-20). He pours out His wrath in judgements upon Satan (20:10), Satan’s allies (19:20; 2:14), and the spiritually dead (20:12, 15) – – – all those who have chosen to “dwell on the earth” (3:10).”
“The Lamb is the God who is coming (1:7,8; 11:17; 22:7,20) to consummate His eternal plan, to complete the creation of the new community of His people in” a new heaven and a new earth” (21:1), and to restore the blessings of the Paradise of God (222:2-5). The Lamb it the goal of all history (22:3).”
The Lamb lives and He is doing everything He can to get our attention, Jesus conquered death so we could live. We will all die a physical death but our soul is eternal you can choose where to spend eternity, Heaven or Hell.
If you haven’t accepted Christ as your savior yet and would like to do so, please pray these words:
“Jesus, I acknowledge I am a sinner and I am in need of salvation. Thank you for your sacrifice on the cross. Come into my heart and make me new. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. Help me to learn to walk with you now. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, please tell someone that can guide you in your next steps in your relationship with Jesus.
Have a day filled with the peace of God.
