12 Saying [lego] with a loud [megas] voice, [phone] Worthy [axios] is [esti] the Lamb [arnion] that was slain [sphazo] to receive [lambano] power, [dunamis] and [kai] riches, [ploutos] and [kai] wisdom, [sophia] and [kai] strength, [ischus] and [kai]honour, [time] and [kai] glory, [doxa] and [kai] blessing. [eulogia]KJV-Interlinear
12 saying with
a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and
riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing."NASB
The ‘lamb’ is the emphasis in all of heaven and in
all of creation.John will add all of
creation to this recognition, in the next verse.
While humanity is moving in the direction of social
philosophies under the name of socialism, progressivism, and liberalism, all of
which are based on false principles, so Jesus Christ is advancing life and
social stabilities based on truth.
Man seeks advancement based on his own
efforts.God advances life and man,
based on Gods work.
The foundation for mans agenda, is arrogance.The foundation for Gods policies,
Humanity has no basis with which to carry out their
high ideas.Man has no power, no wisdom,
no foresight, no control over his own environment, let alone is own life. Man
has a tendency to praise himself over accomplishments because of his intellect,
or ability, or color, or some other attribute in which he categorizes himself.All of which have a tendency to rank oneself
against others, either to recognize some superiority or inferiority, forcing
people into classes or groups.
God, on the other hand, invented life, gives life,
sustains life, prepared a very detailed historical outline, designed a way to
save those who were destined to destruction, and accomplished that plan.God is omniscient,
omnipotent, omnipresent and veracity.God is eternal life and perfect in every way.
In God there is no flaw.God is able to not sin, and not able to sin.
And while man may feel superior or important when a
few, or even millions cheer for him, Christ sits in heaven on His throne,
controlling truth and history and is cheered by trillions and trillions and
trillions and more.
Man cannot compare, cannot even begin to compare,
On earth, life is confused with arrogance resulting
in delusion and lies, and negative attitudes, and getting two people to agree
on anything would be a miracle.
In heaven, truth makes everything clear and perspicuous,
and when everyone sees truth and accepts it (when arrogance in absent and does
not get in the way), then getting everyone on the same page is easy.
