The Sacrifice of Jesus

Are you admiring the perfect sacrifice of Jesus today? Has the depth of His love and sacrifice filled your soul so full it is overflowing? 

There is a place of eternal calm, unceasing tranquility, perfect peace, endless day...  That place is the center of the universe, the throne of God...  To that location John transports us from Patmos' salt mines to heavens highest point... 

  • Rev. 1-3 show the struggling saints
  • Rev. 4-5 are a calm between two storms, the perfect peace which always exists in God’s presence
  • Rev. 6-20 shows the end of earth 

As we look into the book of Revelation remember we see that it is the Revelation of Jesus Christ.  All the Bible is now combined into one majestic picture of the Lamb of God.  He who the prophets foretold, the priest portrayed, and John the Baptist pointed to who stood unknown in the midst of men - is now shown to be the center of the plan of God for this last segment of time before time shall be no more.   

We are at the Throne of Judgment for the Universe. On the Throne is the JUDGE of all.

How can I experience His inexhaustible peace, His eternal calm in the presence of the Ancient of Days, seated on the Judgment Throne of the Universe? What will happen to me because of all my failures and sins?  

Finding peace at the judgment of God by recognizing my unworthiness and guilt before His holy Throne, and recognizing by bowing and worshiping, the utter worthiness of the lamb as my substitute. 

This day, my friend, the Lamb of God walks in the midst of His churches.  He waits and watches to see if we are willing to open the door to Him that He may commune with us.  He alone is worthy and all must and shall bow before Him in praise to that name above every name.  He shall be the Lion, the warrior, and in flaming power rain the vengeance of God upon the nations who shun His appeals to turn and trust.  And, soon dear friend, He the Lord of Glory, the Little Pet Lamb slain for the sin of the whole world shall welcome each and every redeemed one to dwell in Him forever.  Do you know Him today?
