Wesley's Notes for Revelation 5:12


5:12 Worthy is the Lamb - The elders said, #Rev 5:9|, Worthy art thou. They were more nearly allied to him than the angels. To receive the power, &c. - This sevenfold applause answers the seven seals, of which the four former describe all visible, the latter all invisible, things, made subject to the Lamb. And every one of these seven words bears a resemblance to the seal which it answers.

    The Lord loves to hear from his children just like we love to hear from our loved ones. What he loves even more is to hear his saints praying back his own words from the Bible. It is what is written in the Bible what God loves to hear us pray....He is a jealous God! Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my pathway. Let the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight Oh Lord!

    Mary, Those are the prayers of the saints. They aaccended up before God like a sweet aroma. It's not just talking about Apostles but also of any that truly follow the Lamb. Sainthood is not a title that comes from man or any particular organization. God loves prayer from His people.
