On earth, John the Baptist, saw a Man-Lamb and John saw the same thing in heaven, except that this time it was the King, the Son of David, the Lion of the tribe of Judah full of glory and at the same time, as if slaughtered. And it is this ‘Lamb’ that awaits a bride who looks like a city, the Heavenly Jerusalem!
This vision triggered an incredible adoration accompanied by music, intercession, new or prophetic songs,
“6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, … 9 And they sang a new song, saying:
“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
Rev 5:6, 9-10
Yes, there is another powerful level of adoration that is birthed through the revelation of the Lamb, both in the glory of His kingship and in His eternal sacrifice.
In our circles, we are so enthusiastic that He has conquered death and that He is no longer on the cross, that we may run the risk of forgetting the passion and price of sacrifice.
Contemplating and celebrating the Lamb awakens us in our first love. Such love, such sacrifice shakes our religiosity and brings us back into a vibrant relationship with Him. Praying for awakening leads us to return to the cross and worship the Lamb.
We then join this celestial and earthly family, made up of priests from all the nations who, with the angels, celebrate the Lamb which is worthy to receive power, wealth, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and praise and this in the ages to come. When we thus worship together on earth, we align ourselves with this heavenly liturgy.
By raising the Lamb and giving Him all things, we establish His reign and His kingdom on earth so that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. There is a governmental and apostolic power that springs forth from this adoration.
My prayer is that the spirit of revelation further reveals to us the glory of the Lamb so that a fire of worship may spring from its people and we may see and follow it.
Let us pray that the Lamb is exalted over our continent and receive His rightful inheritance.
