Jesus The Lamb I got the idea for this lesson from a sermon I heard Jerry Curry preach on “The Lamb Of God” at Sunny Hill on April 1, 2005. A KJV new testament search for “lamb” results in 31 Verses. Here is the list of those verses that we won’t read tonight, mainly because of redundancy: Jn 1:36, Rev 5:6, 6:1, 7:9, 7:10, 13:8, 13:11, 14:4, 15:3, 21:14, 21:22. Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. The lamb was a sacrifice for sin. Jesus is our lamb/sacrifice. “Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.” (I Cor 5:7b). Christ is our Passover in the sense that he is the cause of God passing over our sins (avoiding spiritual death) by being the sacrifice for our sin. Notice we have shadow/type prefiguring. Ac 8:32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: It is significant that Jesus died for someone else (Rom 5:6-8). And it makes it even more special that he did it willingly – Jn 10:17-18, 15:13. 1Pe 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: And more special yet that he was without sin/guilt, so utterly without cause. Notice from passages like Lev 23:18 that lambs to be used for sacrifice were to be without blemish. Can’t sacrifice one that was about to die of sickness anyway; that wouldn’t be much of a sacrifice. So the detail of without blemish was also part of the shadow. Re 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. The blood cleanses our sins like a washing machine cleanses our clothes. Re 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Total commitment is the proper response. Re 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. Re 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. Re 5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. Jesus is worthy to be worshipped. Re 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: Jesus does show wrath to the disobedient. Re 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Jesus will comfort us. Re 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. . Re 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Re 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. Jesus will lead us to victory over Satan. Re 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. Re 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. Re 21:9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. Jesus and his bride (Christians) are represented as being married, picturing protection from one side, and fidelity from the other. Re 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. Jesus is the revelator of truth. Re 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. Jesus knows who are his. After all, he paid a very big price for us. Re 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Re 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: Jesus reigns with the Father. We are his subjects and servants.
