Revelation 4 and
And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, 4 and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.
We come to the central image of Revelation: the throne of God and the lamb that was slain. Holding these two images in theological perspective, gives the church hope, for the lamb alone is worthy to bring about the justice and salvation of God. Yet, what does it all mean? While the world is in chaos and while Christians walk through unmentionable persecution, the worship in heaven is not only a foretaste of what is to come, but a format for how we are to fill the earth with worship now! Join us as we look only to Jesus the Passover Lamb, the suffering servant, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! He is worthy!
