THE EYE WITNESSES TO THE LAMB
WORTHY IS THE LAMB 1
The title pertains to the Lamb and the Seals of Revelations 6, that contain the unspeakable prophecies of the last days, written or spoken by prophets like Daniel, John the revelator and the Lord Jesus Christ, so also some other prophets of God; these include:
Peace treaties, wars, famine and draught, deaths, economy, religion, morality, technology and science, health and diseases, music and movies, earthquakes, winds, money, and laws.
It is impossible to understand and appreciate these prophetic facts if you do not have the knowledge and understanding of the following, that give credibility to who is in control of the whole thing.
1. Who is he that sat on the throne?
This is deity, the most high God, Jesus Christ, the I AM that I AM, revelations 1:8 and 18.
2. Who are the four beasts?
The four beasts are the four powers that watch over the gospel of God. They are the gospels of Matthew that represents the face of the LION, brave and Kingly; the book of Mark that represent the OX, and is able to bear the burden of the gospel to redeem man back to God; Luke is the MAN, who is crafty, cunning and shrewd; and John the EAGLE, represents the swiftness and power of the gospel: (conduct, order and doctrine of the church by William Marion Branham 1953.)
Rev. 4:6-8 reads, ” And round about the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind. And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second living creature like a calf, and the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures had each of them six wings about him, and they were full of eyes within; and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”
Who was, refers to the death of Jesus Christ. Who is, refers to Jesus Christ in heaven alive and in every believer as the Holy Spirit. Who is to come refers to the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ soon.
3. Who are the four and twenty elders?
These sit around the throne of God, twenty four in number representing the twelve patriarchs of the old testament and the twelve apostles of the new testament. They are the redeemed among men.
Rev. 4:4 reads, “And round about the throne were four and twenty thrones and upon the thrones I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.”
Rev. 4:10-11 reads, “The four and twenty elders fall down before him that is seated on the throne, and worship him that liveth forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne saying: thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
The four and twenty elders are around the throne. They are always worshipping the Lord, falling down before him that is seated on the throne. They are men redeemed from the earth, and they worship the Lord faithfully.
4. Who are the angels around the throne?
Rev. 5:11 reads, “And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the living creatures and the elders, and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousand s of thousands.”
They were all honoring the Lord and blessing him for what he did for all the redeemed including the elders and the four beasts around the throne. Jesus said, we the believers shall be equal to angels when we get to heaven (Matthew 22:30).
5. Who are the redeemed?
Rev. 5:9 reads, “And they sang a new song, saying, thou art worthy to take the book (scroll), and to open its seals; for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people and nations; and hast made us unto our God a kingdom of priests and we shall reign on earth.”
This last scripture connects to Daniel’s vision of the 70 weeks and the last days. The Lord Jesus Christ referred to it in Matt.24, Luke 21 and Mark 13. Finally, John the Apostle saw these last days while at Patmos, and documented them in the book of Revelations. Remember the story of the eunuch of Ethiopia and Philip (Acts 8:26-40: “Understandest thou what thou readest?”). The Ethiopian was reading a part of the Holy Scripture but did not understand about whom and what he was reading; until a messenger of the Lord came and spoke with him. In the end he repented and was baptized. This is the same today; it is difficult to understand and appreciate the book of REVELATIONS. God knew that, so he sent men of God to give mankind the understanding like angel Gabriel did to Daniel (Daniel 8:15-19 ), and Philip did to the Eunuch of Ethiopia (Acts 8:26-40). You are free to accept or reject these the revelations of these men of God; in the end you will have no one to blame but yourself. You need to seek God for the correct answers and leading, knowing we are in the last days and these things will be fulfilled. God sent us two men in these last days to bring understanding; they have come and gone. These men were William Marion Branham and Neal Vincent Frisby. (www.NealFrisby.com).
This website will point to things Daniel, John, Branham, Frisby saw and heard; and what Our Lord Jesus Christ said, in the light of the Holy Scripture. The people who are called to believe at this end of the age are described by a 16th century Evangelist called Charles Price in a spell-binding prophecy. This prophecy can be read in more detail in Scroll 51 by Neal Frisby ( www.Neal Frisby.com) A brief clip includes ” There shall be a total and full redemption by Christ. This is a hidden mystery not to be understood without the revelation of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is at hand to reveal the same into all holy seekers and loving enquirers. The completion of such a redemption is withheld and abstracted by the apocalyptical seals. Wherefore as the Spirit of God shall open seal after seal, so shall this redemption come to be revealed, both particularly and universally.” (Go to the website to see the details, to all holy seeker and loving enquirers.)
6. Who is the Lamb?
There is ONLY one lamb and there are SEVEN seals. These seals hold the final secrets and prophecies for mankind. Who is this Lamb? What do we know about this Lamb? What part has the Lamb played and is still playing? The seven seals are wonderful, powerful and holy, Rev.5:3-5.
Revelations 5:6 reads, “And I beheld and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders stood a LAMB as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are seven spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” ‘Behold the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sins of the world,’ St, John 1:29. The Lamb is referred to as the Lion of the tribe of JUDAH, Revelations 5:5.
“WORTHY IS THE LAMB,” Rev. 5:11-12, is prophetic and has two layers; one is fulfilled and the other is yet to come to pass. The first was for those around the throne praising and worshiping the Lord. This second aspect is for the called, the chosen, the faithful, the redeemed, the justified and the glorified. This second aspect will be a glorious display when all of the redeemed of the earth come before the Rainbow Throne (Rev. 4). The Lamb died on the cross of Calvary that whoever believes may be saved, the redeemed.
The Lamb is now in heaven making intercession for the lost and who may turn and repent of their sins.
Rev. 5:11-12 reads,” And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times, ten thousand and thousands of thousands. Saying with a loud voice, WORTHY IS THE LAMB, that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor and glory and blessing.”
This statement leaves one to wonder, why it is difficult for man for whom Christ Jesus died to praise, worship and honor the LAMB, like the four beasts, twenty four elders an multitude of angels do? Imagine a host of angels in a holy worship of I AM THAT I AM. Let us examine the group of worshipers:
7. What is the book with seven seals?
“And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon,——and to loose the seven seals thereof,” revelations 5:2-3.
There are prophecies that abound in these last days. These prophecies are all wrapped up in the prophecies of the bible. Some of these prophecies are hidden in the seals that are on the backside of the book written within. These seven seals contain God’s step by step judgment of the world, gleaning the earth for the tribulation saints, preparing the remnant of the Jews and the survivals of the great tribulations for the 1000 years rule of Our Lord Jesus Christ, dumping of the devil in chains of darkness and much more including the end of this world system as we know it today. Next messages will focus on the seals and prophecies attached to them in these last days. Watch and prayer, to be found worthy to escape the horrors that are coming in the seals. Jesus Christ will be the only way of escape.
