The Lion & The Lamb
With Easter approaching, I've been thinking about Jesus as the sacrificial Lamb (Isaiah 53:7, John 1:29). He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves, He willingly gave up His life (John 10:15), He became the Son of Man so that we might become sons of God!
Buried in a borrowed tomb, borrowed? Yes, because He was not going to stay there, but death could not hold Him down!
He rose again as a conqueror, victorious, Saviour and Lord! Opened up the way for us so that we could be restored back to our Heavenly Father God. In Revelations 1:18 He declared, "I AM the Living One. I died, but look - I AM alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave."
The time is now coming when He will return but not as the Lamb who was slain but as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The Victorious King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Revelations 5:5, Revelations 19:11-16). I believe that the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is getting ready to roar! And when He does Revelations 15:4 says "all nations will come and worship before You..."
Philippians 2:9-11 says "Every Knee shall bow in heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue declares that Jesus Christ is Lord..."
So, is He your Lord? He may be your Saviour but is He your Lord?
Eternal Life is found not in what you know, but in Who you know! And HIS NAME is JESUS!
(1 Chronicles 28:9) "If you seek HIM you will find HIM."
(Jerimiah 29:13) "If you look for ME wholeheartedly, you will find ME."
God bless you all and have a great week!
