Bible commentary

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.

    Jesus is portrayed as a Lion and as a Lamb. What a significant contrast! He is a Lion who has fought the Devil for us and has won the victory for us. He is a Lamb who has given Himself like a pure lamb without spot or wrinkle to satisfy the justice of God. As a Lion, no one in the spiritual forest can defeat Him. He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords! John the Baptist said, "Behold the Lamb"...

    I see beast and creatures in heaven and in Genesis when creation took place I see what beast are and creatures are and they are not man. So in revelation these beasts and creatures in heaven are not man either. But thousands x thousands and thousands and thousands are angles and elders. wow! Can you imagine Apostle John and what he must of thought when this vision was over? wow
