Worthy is the Lamb!

Scripture reading for December 5th: Daniel 11-12, Hosea 1-2, Revelation 5

Key Scriptures:  Revelation 5:12-13 “. . .saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”  And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”  And the four living creatures said “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.” 

The activity around the throne caught John’s attention.  Worship was flowing from creatures in heaven, on the earth, under the earth and in the sea!  God was being honored by His creation.  Christ, God’s Son, who was slain as the Lamb of God that took away the sins of the world was worthy to receive all honor and worship.  The living creatures and elders affirmed it with words and action!  All of heaven gave glory to God and the Lamb!

Daniel 12:3  “And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” 

Prayer:  Lord, how exciting and energizing is the vision You have given us through Jesus, the prophets and apostles!  Enable us to share the Gospel and turn many to You.  Amen.

Singing of our Lord!

Scripture reading for March 30th:  2nd Samuel 21-24, 1st Kings 1

Key Scriptures:  2nd Samuel 22:1-3 “David sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul.  He said: “The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress and my Deliverer; my God is my Rock in whom I take refuge, my Shield and the Horn of my salvation.  He is my stronghold, my Refuge and my Savior–“

King David was a psalmist of Israel who loved to sing psalms of praise to His Lord.  As David remembered all the times God had delivered him from all his many foes, this song of praise broke forth from his lips!  Our Rock is worthy of praise!

Rejoicing in our Savior:  The chorus in heaven will resound with song at the victory of the Lamb of God!  “In a loud voice they sang, “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”  “Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power for ever and ever!”” (Revelation 5:12-13)
