The royalty of God, how much ignored in our time !! :(
bro Christianindeed our Lord is both the Lion and the Lamb. the Lion in that He is appointed of the Father to rule in all things, the Lamb of God in that He was slain for our sins. This speaks to the manifold attributes of God which come forth to glorify Himself and they benefit us who are called by His name. These manifold attributes of God speak to the total sufficiency of God for us in ALL things, we see here His hand in salvation (the Lamb who is the only one worthy to open the scroll) because we can't saves ourselves, then also we see His ruling Authority (in the Lion) which speaks to His own worthiness to Rule and our own inability and unworthiness to rule (which should dissuade us from thinking that we can rule anything effectively).brethren these are but the beginnings of the depths of God...let us find ourselves desiring for and seeking after the depths of God. AMEN.
Ironman, Being thoroughly westernized, I most sincerely value the input of those like you who can see another world-view. Ill be on the lookout for more nature lessons from you! Nature is fascinating I call it Gods picture book of heaven. (I will be posting more about that in my Heaven thread.)Diane
