Worthy is the Lamb

In Rev 5:12, Jesus is introduced as the Lamb of God who was slain.  The theme of redemption and salvation is the central theme of the Bible.  In the Old Testament, 300 prophecies were given about Jesus Christ and His coming.  They told of His life and work.  Here in this final book of the Bible Jesus is introduced once again as the Lamb of God.  Jesus is the one who took away the sins of the world.  He is the one who gave mankind an opportunity for eternal and abundant life.  In this verse the statement is made that "Worthy is the Lamb."  The reason He is worthy is because He was slain.  It was His blood that secured salvation and healing for all of us.  So because of that He has received power.  No power can stand up to the power of the blood of Jesus.  The blood of Jesus is the most powerful element in the universe.  He will receive wealth.  All of heavens resources are His to give to whom He wishes and He gives us these riches of grace and mercy, wisdom and might.  There is no wisdom that matches the wisdom of God,  No might, authority or Kingdom can match the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ.  Honor and glory are His and His alone.  When Jesus gave His life for us all that which was His before was given back and even more.  There is no one like Jesus.  All blessing is His.  What I love is that all these are ours through Jesus Christ.  Paul says that we are joint heirs with Jesus Christ.  Jesus shares these attributes with us as we serve Him. So today like the writer of Revelation let us say, "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, let Him continue to receive the power, wealth, wisdom, might, honour, glory and blessing.  Jesus is worthy and we will worship Him for who He is and what He has done.
