The Lamb Who Overcomes
"Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren . . . has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to death."
-Revelation 12:10-11, emphasis added
Now that we have seen Christ as the perfect sacrifice, consider these other wonderful references to the Lamb of God:
· Jesus is the wrathful Lamb: [They] said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!" (Revelation 6:16).
· Jesus is the worshiped Lamb: "The Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes" (Revelation 7:17).
· Jesus is the warring Lamb: "These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful" (Revelation 17:14).
· Jesus-"God with us"-rejoices at the wedding of the Lamb: Then he said to me, "Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!'" And he said to me, "These are the true sayings of God" (Revelation 19:9).
Do you admire the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ? Do you admire the worthy Lamb that was slain? From your heart and lips, do you attribute to Him power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing?
