Passage: Revelation 5:1-14
There is no greater feeling than being rescued from an impossible, or terrifying, situation. To be helpless is to be hopeless. Jesus is once again presented to us as our only hope. Nothing in all of heaven and earth could ever accomplish was Jesus alone did for us.
The opening verses of Revelation tell us everything we need to know about the power and importance of this book: ”The Revelation of Jesus Christ...Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.” As Christians, we wait in eager anticipation for the promised day that Jesus will return. No matter what conclusions we may draw about the meaning and timing of this Revelation, one thing is majestically clear: Jesus is the roaring Lamb who triumphs in the end!
