So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll or look at it. But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
There are about a million verses in the Bible all underlying and the stating the fact that everything is working together for our good and encouraging us as well, yet we seem to judge ourselves unworthy because we are still singing the old song which is, “We’re not worthy, today we did this and didn’t do that.”
We keep basing our faith, hope, love trust, believe and worship on our day to day performances which will certainly not help because as far as we’re on this earth there are going to be some good and bad days. Are we not going to worship on those bad days then nor love nor have faith?
As Paul and Barnabas preached the good news in Acts 13:44-50 , it was to the Gentiles joy, but to the Jews it was all blasphemy, envy and the likes of it. The Jews like us know a lot of the scriptures and these should have made more sense to us but we don’t see it that way because we still think there’s something we need to do.
Yet the message is no longer about us and our performance of rituals, but about Jesus, the Messiah who came to die for our sins and called us to himself, that we should believe in him and we will have everlasting life … that we should come to him (that is, we that labor & are heavy laden) and He will give us rest … that our righteousness is Jesus and that this Grace that has appeared to us all will teach us what to do and not do [Titus 2:11-15] and we won’t just do things out of mere rituals but rather based on His worthiness and grace and love which compels us.
We’ve got to understand that God’s grace is bigger than our failings in this life and the promises in the Bible are true and will be true in our lives because worthy is the lamb. We will not be the tail but the head because worthy is the lamb. We’re going to be all that He has planned for us because worthy is He that has called us to himself. The devil has never and will never be the problem because Jesus the author and finisher of our faith has finished our books and signed it with his blood.
Worthy is the lamb! Worthy is the lamb!! Worthy is the lamb!!! Join me and the heavenly angels and the elders us we sing a new song:
“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, and have made us Kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
Worthy is the lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honour and
Glory and blessing!”
Blessing and honour is His and His alone!
Have a MERRY Christmas and remember all things are working together for you and in the right moment you shall reap because He is worthy and He is not a man that he will lie. Jesus alone is worthy.
To God be the glory!
