Exploring Revelation
1550
“Revelation 5:9-12”
by A. Sadlier   
April 13th, 2008

In these verses we see the Saints worship the Lamb and we see that prayer is a part of worship.

These prayers are significant because they are the prayers of the Saints of the Church Age. Prayers in which they have requested over the long Church Age, that deliverance on earth from sin and the curse might come. That judgment might come upon sin and evil. That Christ's Glorious Kingdom might come to earth.

In verse 11, John suddenly realizes that a mighty Host of heaven's angels have joined the songs of praise to the Lamb "Who Is Worthy."

The thought is of an innumerable number of Angels and the great host of church saints. You and I will be there! What a marvelous, awesome time that will be! What a prospect we have! What does it matter that we have trials and troubles in the here and now!

In verse 12, we have a sevenfold proclamation of the Glory of the Lamb. POWER - Jesus said "All power is given unto Me." Now He is about to exercise that power in the tribulation period. Power to defeat His enemies, and to claim the earth as His rightful possession.

RICHES, "All things were created by Him and for Him." The cattle on a thousand hills are His, the wealth in every mine and all of the riches of heaven, and, He is about to reclaim the earth and all of its riches. Believer you are a Joint-Heir with Christ, How rich You Are!

WISDOM, "He is the All-Knowing One." He is about to show His wisdom in His dealings with a rebel world and a diabolical satan.

STRENGTH, "He upholdeth all things with the Word of His power." He is about to demonstrate His strength in judging the world.

HONOR, "Every knee shall bow," That will happen when He has triumphed and the Millenial Kingdom begins.

GLORY, to whom be praise and dominion forever." That dominion will begin when the tribulation period is over. The pouring out of His Judgment will bring it about. "And He shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth" Psalms 72:8

BLESSING. "He is the source of all blessing" and what He is about to do will bring great blessing to the earth and to the saints. The blessing of a restored Eden will be the portion of those who dwell in the Millenial Kingdom.

BELIEVERS, we stand on the threshold of that fearsome time when our Lord Jesus will move in judgment upon the world of lost men and women. We need to have compassion on those around us who do not know Christ as Savior. We need to share the message of the Gospel with a sense of urgency.
