Worthy Is The Lamb!

Revelation 5:1-14

Holy! Holy!

Are You Lord God, Almighty!

Worthy Is The Lamb!

Worthy Is The Lamb!

You Are Holy!

Agnus Dei – The title Lamb of God (in Latin Agnus Dei) appears in the Gospel of John, with the exclamation of John the Baptist: "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world"

In our selected text we find two references to Christ as a “Lamb that was slain”

Revelation 5:6 ¶And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

Look with me to the text and lets see a few reasons why the Lamb is worthy:

I. The Lamb Is Worthy Because Of His Sovereignty v1-5

v1 ¶And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

John saw a book – Literally a scroll that was sealed with seven seals. This scroll was in the right hand of God.

By this point John must have been overwhelmed at all that he has witnessed in Chapters 1-4. But now he encounters a dilemma. He said - “I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon”

Angels were not worthy!

Even the Archangels were unworthy!

All Heavenly powers stood silent!

The Prophet’s of old were not worthy!

The Lord’s Apostles were not worthy!

Among all of the Saint’s, no one worthy was found! All of Heaven itself becomes silent and unable at the task of breaking the seals of this scroll.

As they searched through Heaven & Earth and found no one worthy, John’s heart began to break and tears began to flow… Then, one of the Elders said hang on John! There is ONE WHO IS WORTHY!

The Elder said look John…. “One has prevailed” {G} conquered” - gained the victory.

Christ’s past victory over all the powers of darkness entitles Him the ability & power to break the seals of the scroll!

Jesus describes supremacy is seen in: Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. .........Revelation 4:8 ¶And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
