Text: Revelation 5:6-14
As the Elder proclaims, there is one who is worthy in the entire universe to open the scroll and to break its seals. In verses 6-14 John sees the one who is worthy. He is the lamb who is the lion. The Lamb is standing as if slain. He stands in victory. As he takes the scroll from the Father heaven breaks out into worship. Listen to God's word and may the Holy Spirit work in your life for the glory of God.
