From Pastor’s Desk:
John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Only a perfect, unblemished, spotless, sacrificial lamb would do for a sin offering under the Old Testament sacrificial system.
So it is that Jesus, our perfect, unblemished, spotless sacrifice, went in, “Not by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood, he entered in once into the Holy Place, having obtained eternal redemption (for us all).”
Revelation 5:2 poses the question, “Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? Verse 3 gives an answer: “And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.” Verse 6 show us the “Lamb as it had been slain.” Verse 7 says, “…he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
Revelation 5:9 tells us “…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…'”
Can’t quit there! Verse 13 continues “…every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.”
The church should do as John did and say what John said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”
