To know the real Jesus is absolutely critical to our lives and eternal destiny. A thorough examination of Scriptures will reveal that there are many more facets to who He is and what He has done for us than most people realize. To place our confidence in some false representation of Jesus will only grant our adversary, the devil, opportunity to deceive and eventually destroy us. Jesus Himself warned that in the last days there would arise false christs and false prophets. It is our job to reveal the true Jesus, so that those who hear might believe in Him.
This book is exactly that; an in-depth look into the multi-faceted person of Jesus Christ. It will inspire you, quite possibly surprise you, and ultimately build you up in your faith in the God who is the creator of all things.
Jesus is God’s Gift to Man and the Creator of all things. He is the Image of the Invisible God. He is the Author and Finisher of Faith. He is also the Shepherd of our Soul. He is the Prince of Peace and yet He is also called a Refiner’s Fire. He is known as the Lamb of God but also the Lion from the tribe of Judah. He is Lord of an eternal, inexorable Kingdom, and the King of heaven and earth. But he is a King Who is also a Priest, full of mercy and grace. Each of these aspects of who He is has significant implications in our lives.
The Lamb Who is a Lion
In Revelation chapter five we see Jesus described as the Lion from the Tribe of Judah. In this prophetic book He is called a Lion who appears to John as a Lamb who was slain. He is actually one and the same. I believe there is coming an increase of insight into this aspect of the nature of our Lord Jesus who is the Lamb of God, and yet a Lion from Judah’s tribe. Judah means praise. We know King David of the tribe of Judah, the forerunner of Jesus our King, as the worshiping warrior. We have known Jesus as the Lamb of God, our Savior, but soon we will see Him manifested as a Lion, a ferocious Warrior and the King and Judge of all the earth.
This Lamb who was slain is here being called a Lion and is the only One worthy to open the seven seals of judgment. He is about to be revealed as Ruler and Judge. With that revelation will also come the realization that the last-days Church is being called with Him and through Him into that same role of ruler and judge as described in the next few verses of chapter five. “And they sang a new song, saying: ‘You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.’” (Revelation 5:9, 10)
Chapters 6 through 8 go on to tell of the unfolding of these seals of judgment.
“Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.” (Revelation 19:11)
We have known Jesus as the Lamb of God, our Savior, but soon we will see Him manifested as a Lion, a ferocious Warrior and the King and Judge of all the earth.
“The LORD will go forth like a warrior, He will arouse His zeal like a man of war. He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry, (KJV – roar). He will prevail against His enemies.” (Isaiah 42:13 NAS)
