The Lamb

It has been on my heart to read the book of Revelation again, so I've been pouring over the pages. I love the way it starts out: "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants....who testifies to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ."  And, a few sentences down, " Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy and heed the things which are written in it."
The book or Revelation was given to John, he was willing to be challenged and willing to receive a revelation from God! And, when he did it was treated almost immediately as scripture.
In church yesterday, one of the ladies started talking about Revelation 4:8,

"Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, The Almighty, who was and Who is and Who is to come."

She commented on how noisy heaven must be with all the bowing, talking ,singing, and casting off of crowns! And, it brought a smile to my face.

Revelation is full of turmoil and tribulation, warnings! The verse I rested on this morning was this:

"For the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their Shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the 'water of life' and God will wipe every tear from their eyes." chapter 7:17

Say That Again, Lamb of God, You will Shepherd me and guide me to springs of life. You will wipe all my tears away!
