Victory Through Sacrifice [4-24-22]


Revelation 5 marks a transition. The first four chapters are filled with the worship of God for His role in creation. Now, in chapter five, we shift focus to the worship of Jesus Christ for his work of redemption.


Here's something you might want to write down. In Revelation 5, we find:

A SCENE OF UNRESTRAINED PRAISE AND ADORATION.

That's what we'll be looking at.


We're going to start in the middle. Look at verse nine:

And they sang a new song, saying,

“Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

Two passages from the Book of Psalms elevate this point:

  • Psalm 99:4-5 - "The King in his might loves justice. You have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob. Exalt the Lord our God; worship at his footstool! Holy is he!"
