Signed, Sealed and Delivered! by Stacia W. Adams

With the comprehensive knowledge of the scroll as the title and deed to the Creation, the unfolding plan of the rest of redemption, salvation, sanctification and glorification, the things of this world seem both minor yet strategic.  In Revelation Chapter 5 Christ is described as a lion and lamb, both descriptions are aspects of the very nature of Christ. He is the Lion of Judah that conquers yet the Lamb of God that was slain.

When looking with hindsight at Christ in Revelation Chapter 5, taking in account the life of Jesus the Christ and especially Calvary, we see hope in a very unique but beautiful light. Tragedies have a peculiar way of shaping our lives. It’s not until Jesus actually dies that we meet Death in a way we have never met Death before. For the first time Death commands our respect not just our attention. The death of Christ taught us how to live, how to love and how to focus. Examining Jesus’ family and His disciples at the time of His death and even the lives of His ancestors, if we look carefully we can see the hand of God in the midst of our pain. Tribulation teaches us patience, patience gives us experience, experience authenticates our hope and hope makes us not ashamed.

When John looked up and saw the Lamb that looked as though it had been slain, the fact that He was standing is what caused an outbreak of another level of worship and a new song to be song.  For us as believers, to know that the Lamb is standing, gives us the realization that  the weight of the responsibility of the Glory is worth it. It’s the blessed assurance that the fight is our friend. For those of us who have hidden God’s word in our heart, this is the unveiling of Exodus 12:1-7 and John 1:29, the Lamb standing, as though He had been slain is symbolic of the victory of Christ on Calvary. May we suffer well, enduring the tragedies and triumphs of this life understanding that Christ didn’t die naked for us, He died naked as us.  Jesus is the Passover who saves us from eternal death. Through Christ the prophecy is fulfilled and so are we. May our faith be strengthened and encouraged.
