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.


Discussion for Revelation 5:12

  • Gwen Proctor for verse 12
    I see them as Jesus receiving the seven spirits release unto him as the book was open that was sealed until the Lamb was the only one worthy to take the book out of the hand of God. After The Lamb opened the book the spirit that Jesus received was significant to the church. Whatever Jesus received was also released unto us as Kings and priest in the kingdom to come but now as servants of God. So this power, riches wisdom, strength, honor, glory, blessing are the 7 spirits that was released at the opening of the book that Jesus received. And we too have this anointing.
