Revelation 5:5-6 …Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals..Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne.
Jesus is the Lamb of God. Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. The Jews did not recognise Him as the messiah as they were looking for a Lion. A powerful leader who would rule and take dominion. However he came as a lamb slain in order to make a way for us to be saved. We need to be careful not to just see Jesus as the lamb and Remember that he is also the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. He is the Lion and you will hear Him roar! When he returns he will not return meek and mild but will return on a white horse with eyes of fire and the hosts of Heaven behind him. All will bow the knee and the victory of the cross will once and for all be enforced. The hills melt like wax in the presence of the Lord. He has triumphed! To all who overcome he gives the right to sit on his throne.
Prayer Today: That we would see Jesus not just as saviour but also as Lord. That we would look to him for the victory.
