The sepremacy and worthiness of Christ

November 3rd, 2008

In Revelation 5:1-14 we see that John has a vision of heaven. He is taken into the very throne room of God and sees heaven in all its glory in full surround sound. It must have been an awesome experience.

When I read this passage four interesting things jumped out at me which caused me to reflect on Christ’s worthiness.

1. The cry went out (v1-3) – The Angel cries out to find someone who is worthy to open the scrolls and consumate history. At first glance there doesn’t seem like anyone is worthy.

2. John weaps (v4-5) – John wept as no-one was worthy to undertake this task. Then one of the Elders tells John to look towards the throne…to look Jesus’ way.

3. John sees Jesus (v6-7) – John’s eyes turn to the Lamb that was slain – Jesus. He sees Him take the scroll from the hand of the One sitting on the throne.

4. All heaven bows down (v8-14) – All of heaven proclaim Jesus as the one who is supreme and able to open the scrolls and bring history to its completion. All of heaven finds that Jesus alone is worthy.

As we look at the world around us today, there are many people looking for one who is worthy to consumate history. For many people today the cry goes out in the earth, “Who is worthy to save?”

There are many faiths in the world today, but which is the right way? The Bible makes it clear when it tells us that Jesus is the way. He is the way to the Father and the way to salvation (John 14:6, Acts 4:12).

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. He is the one worthy to consumate history and bring salvation to all mankind. All of heaven realised this…how about you?

Would you like to receive Jesus in all of His glory today? Would you like to receive the One who is worthy to save and bring all of the Father’s plans to pass? If so, please visit my “Peace with God” page here
