The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy

//The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy

QUESTION #12 – According to Revelation 5:13-14, ‘the One’ (God the Father) and the Lamb (Jesus) are both worshipped at the same time. The Bible is clear that only the one true God may be worshipped. How then can the Lamb (Jesus) be worshipped if he is not God?

ANSWER – Some might wonder why trinitarians go to such lengths to prop up a doctrine that is nonsensical to its core and has not a shred of scriptural support. There is a very good reason. The Father of the lie, the Devil, the original Slanderer of God, does not want people to understand or appreciate the fact that Jehovah has exalted Jesus and given him his throne as a reward for Jesus’ absolute subservience and loyalty. That is what the trinity is all about — denying Jesus’ obedience and Jehovah’s generosity. And it has a powerful liar, even a god, who pushes it.

From the very beginning in Eden the Devil accused God of not trusting his creatures. Later in the case of Job the Slanderer just came out and said it, accusing God of bribing his creatures with goodies in order to win their loyalty. Satan’s contention was that if God took it all away that any man would deny God to save his neck. By his sacrificial course Jesus proved that the Devil is a liar.

And to further demonstrate that Satan is an outrageous liar Jehovah not only brought Jesus back to life, he exalted him to be his virtual equal —giving Jesus life in himself, which is something that the Firstborn son did not possess in the beginning. That is why Jesus said: “For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted also to the Son to have life in himself. And he has given him authority to do judging, because he is the Son of man.”

Anyone who is not bent on pushing the Devil’s lie can readily see that Jesus plainly declared that God granted the Son to have immortality and he gave Jesus authority to judge. Nobody gives God life or authority. He has always possessed such. But by giving Christ immortality and indestructibility Jesus no longer needs God for anything. Besides that, God has given him everything, entrusting his very throne to the Son. There is nothing that Jehovah has held back, including the honor and glory that is given to God himself, contrary to what the Devil lyingly told poor Eve.

So, in his madness the Devil has duped the masses of the untaught to believe that Jesus is God, that he received nothing from God, that he has always been God’s equal. Truly, Satan is a masterful liar —the best there is.

As regards the verse in question, it should be understood that there are two separate entities pictured in the vision. “The One sitting on the throne” is obviously Jehovah God, the King of eternity. And then there is the Lamb in the midst of the throne. It should be evident to all but the most perverse that Jesus is the Lamb. But, equally evident is the fact that Jesus has not always been the Lamb. He became the sacrificial lamb of God when he was baptized by John. And John then introduced Jesus to the Jews as “the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.” —John 1:29

After Jesus was sacrificed as a blameless and innocent lamb, Jehovah resurrected him into the spirit world and exalted him to his right hand. And as Paul stated every knee will bend before him at some point in the future, including those in heaven.

Keep in mind that although John was given the Revelation almost 2,000 years ago, the vision itself is about the future —when Jesus begins ruling as the King. That is what the 5th chapter is Revelation is portraying. Call it the coronation of the King. That is why the 24 elders and all the angels are assembled around the throne —to hail the new King. And the vision focuses on the Lamb receiving the scroll and opening the seven seals of the scroll containing God’s judgments. In fact, it is at the very moment the Lamb receives the scroll that the elders and four living creautres fall down before him. Revelation states: “When he took the scroll, the four living creatures and the 24 elders fell down before the Lamb, and each one had a harp and golden bowls that were full of incense. (The incense means the prayers of the holy ones.) And they sing a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, for you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought people for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth.”

The point is, the Lamb has not always occupied such an exalted place, being intimately connected to the very worship of Jehovah. That is why the elders are singing a new song. Jesus coming to power and wielding all authority in heaven and over the earth is something new. That is why all the angels declared in the vision: “The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy to receive the power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.”

Although the trinitarian would have you believe that the Lamb is God and always has been worshipped, the angels give witness that the Lamb is worthy of the highest honors because he willingly allowed himself to be slaughtered.

So, the question is, who are you going to believe, God’s loyal angels or a trinitarian?

      Hola busco amigos que quieran hablar de estos temas. ? 3233670255

    • Marisa Gomez

      Hola,,,,hola,,,,,si formo parte de todos los que saludas..te molesto porque aun estoy esperando la respuesta a las preguntas que te hice,,,,,,confio en no enfadarte.

      • Andres Felipe

        No me molestas para nada : la verdad he estado muy ocupado en el trabajo . Recuerda que el libro apocalipsis fue escrito después de la resurrección del señor Jesucristo y fue después de ese acto que jehová valora el sacrificio de su hijo y le da honra y gloria y sí , se permite adoración para su hijo .porque ?preguntas . Porque dar adoración a Jesús si jehova dice en isaias : ” a ningún otro daré yo mi propia gloria ni alabanza”. La razón es sencilla: agradecimiento. Jesús hizo por jehova algo que ningún ser podía hacer ( ni siquiera jehova ) y fue demostrar que se puede mantener integridad perfecta hacia jehova con todo el amor que eso implica .cerró la boca de Satanás de la mentira que lanzó al decir que jehová nos soborna para que le adoramos.recuerda que jehová tuvo que abandonar a su hijo para que muriera es por eso que Jesús hablo de la hora de la oscuridad . Jehova le dio a Jesús absolutamente todo , incluso si recuerdas el apostol Pablo muestra que Jesús recibiria por mil años toda autoridad por encima del mismo jehova. El Salmo 110:5 que jehová incluso esta a la diestra de su hijo . La biblia no es un libro religioso Mary es un libro sobre la humanidad y los tratos de Dios con nosotros. Jehova al igual que un padre humano siempre pone a su hijo por encima de él, aunque sea mas sabio o mayor que él

        • Marisa Gomez

          Oh,,oh!!!! Ahora si que estoy con la boca abierta,,,,,,,,what? Debo entender que entonces tendremos dos Dioses? Jehová y Jesus? ….. supongo que solo por los mil años hasta que Jesus devuelva el Reino Jehova…1Cor.15: 24.
          Te imaginas si llego a hablar de esto con algun hno. o hna. en la congre?
          Me convierto en hereje.!!!!!

          • Andres Felipe

            Porque dices eso ?es conocimiento básico de las escrituras y no está en conflicto con el hecho que jehová es nuestro soberano universal .recuerda sin embargo que cristo recibe esos títulos de jehova

            • Marisa Gomez

              Si, de acuerdo, pero que Jesus se sienta en el trono de Jehova….eso es nuevo para mi….Ademas lei en el post de Robert Reyes, que Jesus por haber recicbido indestructividad de parte de su Padre,,,,ya no necesita de el para nada….no se si es mala la traduccion o asi mismo es….pero…..me suena algo extraño.

            • Andres Felipe

              Si , leí lo mismo me parece que es la traducción . De todas formas jehova hace de su hijo una nueva creación; nada parecido ha hecho jehova antes , es nevadas en todo sentido, porque jehova hace de su hijo un ser inmortal; y los seres inmortales no dependen de jehova en absoluto .que privilegio recibe cristo por mantener su integridad perfecta, no te parece ? Es por eso que los cristianos ungidos tienen que pasar por pruebas semejantes para recibir la corona de la inmortalidad .imagínate : todos los ungidos habrán demostrado lo mentiroso que es satanás el diablo al calumniar a jehova ….ellos también recibirán la inmortalidad

            • Marisa Gomez

              Ok, gracias…..te seguiré molestando mas adelante…saludos

            • Andres Felipe

    The simple answer is that Jesus became God when he became Love, whereas Jehovah has always been God and furthermore he is the Creator of the only-begotten God, Jesus. There are now two God’s to be worshiped and they will never be equal as one is the King of Eternity into the future of space-time and one is the King of Eternity in both directions of space time. So not only did Jehovah give Jesus existence, he also gave him life within himself and exalted him to a position of superiority above every created thing. That though leaves out his Father who is not created.

      I like your comment

  • Beverly kenyon

    In Revelation Chapter 5 it’s fantastic to read of the Coronation of the Christ…as Brother King so aptly puts it. Reading that chapter Jehovah lets us see the momentous occasion. The very thing Satan wanted…power and to be a ruler over Jehovah’s creation, is given to the Lamb, Jesus Christ, bet he’s gonna be livid! Basa in his post said how Jesus is referred to as a son of man, so if he’s also God as trinitarians believe how come in Numbers Chapter 23:19 it says, God is not a man etc, etc. From Babylonian days triune or triple deities has always been found in mythology. Also the Egyptians had their three in one gods so it’s not a new concept and is found in paganism so to believe that ridiculous teaching, you’re a pagan worshipper! So 2Peter 3:16 is quite right when it talks about ignorant and unstable people distorting scriptures because that’s exactly what these ones are doing when they put forward their argument about the so called trinity. A reasonable and stable person would have to be on magic mushrooms to understand that nonsensical teaching. You would have to be tripping to understand it because there’s nothing understand about it!

  • calling it the coronation of the King was pretty kool

    • Beverly kenyon

      Yeah DA, I thought it was fantastic being called the Coronation of the King of Kings! Thought it was brill!

      • Beverly kenyon

        Btw, I added on the extra bit about Kings. Lol. It’s just that that term really makes my heart sing!

  • Marisa Gomez

    Why there is a face on the leg of the lamb? Why this lamb has six horns instead six eyes if the lamb is shown with 7 horns and seven eyes?

    • The Lamb does have seven horns. Maybe you are using a phone of a device with a small screen, but it you look closely you’ll see that behind the horn in the foreground on the left there is another horn. It is hard to detect, but the artist is pretty good with details. I don’t know about any face. I have never seen any subliminals in Ted’s work.

      • Marisa Gomez

        Bien….dicen que no todos pueden ver subliminales, yo soy muy buena viendo, casi nada.
        Pero Rey,,,nomme ha contestado la pregunt que le hice acerca de si es en verdad Jesus el ginete del caballo blanco….

  • Marisa Gomez

    Es claro que Jesús nunca quiso ser igual a Dios Filipenses 2:6…but fue Satanas quien lo quiso Isaias 14:13.
    It is clear Jesus never wanted to be equal to God.Filipians 2:6…but Satan wanted. . Isaiah 14:13
