Revelation 5:6





6 And [kai] I beheld, [eido] and, [kai] lo, [idou] in [en] the midst [mesos] of the throne [thronos] and [kai] of the four [tessares] beasts, [zoon] and [kai] in [en] the midst [mesos] of the elders, [presbuteros] stood [histemi] a Lamb [arnion] as [hos] it had been slain, [sphazo] having [echo] seven [hepta] horns [keras] and [kai] seven [hepta] eyes, [ophthalmos] which [hos] are [eisi] the seven [hepta] Spirits [pneuma] of God [theos] sent forth [apostello] into [eis] all [pas] the earth. [ge]    KJV-Interlinear

6 And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.    NASB



John is looking at an incredible scene before him, the glowing, blazing reflection of God's glory emanating from the throne, the bright green rainbow surrounding it, the brilliant smooth sea on which it sits, the flashes of lightning and peals of thunder foreshadowing fearsome divine judgment, the four living creatures which are life, and twenty-four elders which are glorified believers.


John's attention was drawn to what he saw between the throne (with the four creatures) and the elders.


Instead of the anticipated mighty Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the all-conquering Davidic King as was previously mentioned, John saw a Lamb.


The Lord Jesus could not be the Lion of judgment, or the King of glory, unless He was first "the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world" (John 1:29).


The lamb refers to a baby or young lamb.  This was mentioned in the Old Testament, Ex 12:3-6, where each family was to select a lamb and keep it for four days, as a pet, and then sacrifice it, demonstrating something that becomes near and dear to you, a family member, must pay the price for sin, in order to obtain salvation.This is a picture of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, going to the Cross.


Christ is only referred to as a lamb once in the Old Testament, Isa 53:7.  And in the New Testament outside of Revelation, He is called a lamb four times, John 1:29, 36; Acts 8:32; 1 Peter 1:19.   And in Revelation He appears as the Lamb thirty-one times.


This was no ordinary lamb.  His is the unique lamb, only one of its kind.


The lamb stood, alive, but had all of the markings and scars of one who had been executed, and had died, yet was alive.  This symbolism of the lamb, stood in the midst of the throne and all of the scene before John, and represents the work of Christ on the Cross, which is an integral and necessary part of Gods plan.


For life cannot go forward without the work of Christ on the Cross, and no power could be bestowed on the throne, or even take possession of the throne without the work of the lamb, the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross.


The lamb stood alive, but had died, representing resurrection and the victory over sin and death.  For no plan is complete unless there is restored life for eternal life.


The lamb had seven horns, representations of power, 1 Sam 2:1,10; 2 Sam 22:3; Ps 18:2; 75:10; 89:17,24; Jer 48:25; Mic 4:13.  The number seven represents perfection or completion.


The lamb had seven eyes, representing perfect sight or foreknowledge and omniscience, Zech 4:10, 2 Chron 16:9.The number seven represents perfection of completion.


The seven spirits represent the spiritual life, the path to spiritual maturity, Isa. 11:1.


And all of these come together representing the perfect and complete plan of God for you, for history, for humanity.  There is no plan, no power of the lion, until and unless the lamb is first taken, sacrificed and then resurrected back to life.Then and only then is Gods plan complete.


The lamb represents Gods strategic victory in the angelic conflict, and preparing the way for His tactical victory, which is about to be unleashed and accomplished against Satan and evil.


Gods victory is for the benefit of all of humanity spread across all of the earth, throughout all of history.


On this Easter day, I wish to extend from my family to yours, our wish that you will have a great Easter, and spiritual life, grace and blessings from God to the fullest extent possible.  And to thank you, one and all, for making this Daily Bible Study, the most extensive study online, throughout the world, drawing readers from nearly every nation, everyday.
