The Lion and The Lamb

July 21st, 2009 No comments

Rev 5:5-10

Since I was a child I have heard the expression, “If March comes in like a Lion it will leave like a Lamb. ” Well, March 2004 came to Kansas City like a Lion. I suppose we can expect it to leave like a Lamb.

It is quite a paradox that our Lord came to this world as a Lamb. He came peacefully and to bring peace to the hearts of mankind. As the Lamb of God He gave His life freely as a sacrificial offering so that we might have a relationship with God. We are told in His Word, however, that He will come again and this time as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. His roar will be heard throughout the world. He will come as King and Conqueror to vanquish all of His enemies once and for all.

To this we raise the cry, “All hail King Jesus! All hail Emmanuel! ” May the one who came as a Lamb return as a Lion for those who love Him and serve Him. Then around the throne we will be able to join with “… every creature that is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, ” [saying] “…Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever. ”

The Coming Day of the Lord

July 21st, 2009 No comments

Zech. 14:1-11 (9)

I was spellbound as I looked down at the carnage. There laying in my lap was my father’s book which described in word and picture the events that took place during World War II. It showed how his division in the infantry had hopped from island to island throughout the South Pacific.

In the picture that had my attention lifeless bodies carpeted the battlefield. It looked like it would be difficult to pass through the field without stepping on a dead soldier. As I studied the pictures I came to know that this was the trail left by the conqueror.

One day in our future the King of all kings, the Lord of all lords will say it is enough. Those who have rejected Him and rebelled against Him will know the heat of His fury. Those who have scorned Him will wilt before the scorching scrutiny of His examination. All His enemies will be slain.

Only those who have sworn allegiance to King Jesus and who are pleasing in His sight will be left to praise and glorify His name.

At times it seems that the secular pagan has the Christian in retreat. It seems that we are backing up. It seems that we are forced to delay the progress of the kingdom. It seems that we are not victorious. This is when we must recall that the battle is not yet over. The trumpet of God has not yet sounded. The King has not yet mounted His steed. One day Jesus the Captain of our Salvation will look out before Him to see that all are bowing before Him.
