Does that mean that Mary had a little lamb?
*an not a, jeez, what’s wrong with me.
That is all
The Book of Revelation is “the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God (Yahweh) gave him” (1:1). From the very first verse we are told that Jesus is not God. God is differentiated from Jesus. The God of Jesus Christ gave Jesus Christ this revelation.
In Revelation 1:5-6 Jesus Christ is “the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.” Jesus “loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father…” The Father is Jesus Christ’s God in the Book of Revelation, just as other Scriptures testify many times (e.g., John 20:17, Rom. 15:6, 2 Cor. 1:3, 11:31, Eph 1:3, 17, 1 Pet. 1:3). Jesus told the Sardis church that their works were not perfect in the site of his God (3:2). Four times in one verse (3:12) Jesus referred to “my God”. This is the resurrected, glorified Jesus Christ speaking who is at the right hand of God. That Jesus Christ has a God. In other words, not only is Jesus Christ distinguished from the Father in the Book of Revelation, he is also distinguished from God.
The Book of Revelation clearly distinguishes between the Almighty God, “Him who sits on the throne” (Revelation 4) and “the Lamb standing, as though it had been slain" (Revelation 5). The two are never confused. The Lamb is not God (who sits on the throne), God is not the Lamb. The God of chapter 4 is worshiped because He is God who created everything. The Lamb of chapter 5 is worshipped not because he is God, but because he was slain and by his blood did ransom men for God (5:10). We can all agree that “the Lamb, standing as though it had been slain” in the Book of Revelation 5:6 is Jesus the Messiah, who was killed, but then raised from the dead. God, on the other hand, does not die, and is not raised from the dead.
Note how the Lamb is continually differentiated from God, who sits on the throne. That is, God is not the Lamb, and the Lamb is not God: “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”. – Rev. 5:13 “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb”. – Rev. 6:16 After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number…standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands. – Rev. 7:9 “…crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to th... keep reading on reddit ➡

Who takes away the sin of the world
Was just wondering if this short-lived news story from last year caught anyone else's attention:
Ghent Altarpiece: Lamb's 'alarmingly humanoid' face surprises art world
"Restorers found that the central panel of the artwork, known as the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, had been painted over in the 16th Century.
Another artist had altered the Lamb of God, a symbol for Jesus depicted at the centre of the panel.
Now conservationists have stripped away the overpaint, revealing the lamb's "intense gaze" and "large frontal eyes". ........ The lamb has been described as having an "alarmingly humanoid face" with "penetrating, close-set eyes, full pink lips and flared nostrils" by the Smithsonian Magazine.
These features are "eye-catching, if not alarmingly anthropomorphic", said the magazine, the official journal of the Smithsonian Institution.
There was also disbelief on social media, where the lamb was called "disturbing" by some and compared to an "alien creature". Some said they felt it would have been better to not restore the lamb's original face."
This immediately made me recall the 20th Aethyr from The Vision and the Voice:
"The figures on the wheel are darker than the wheel itself; in fact, they are stains upon the purity of the wheel, and for that reason, and because of the whirling of the wheel, I cannot see them. But at the top seems to be the Lamb and Flag, such as one sees on some Christian medals, and one of the lower things is a wolf, and the other a raven. The Lamb and Flag symbol is much brighter than the other two. It keeps on growing brighter, until now it is brighter than the wheel itself, and occupies more space than it did.
It speaks: I am the greatest of the deceivers, for my purity and innocence shall seduce the pure and innocent, who but for me should come to the centre of the wheel. The wolf betrayeth only the greedy and the treacherous; the raven betrayeth only the melancholy and the dishonest. But I am he of whom it is written: He shall deceive the very elect.
For in the beginning the Father of all called forth lying spirits that they might sift the creatures of the earth in three sieves, according to the three impure souls. And he chose the wolf for the lust of the flesh, and the raven for the lust of the mind; but me did he choose above all to simulate the pure prompting of the soul. Them that are fallen a prey to the wolf and the raven I have not scath... keep reading on reddit ➡
