Then I Saw a Lamb

14837144917_40e38f3b46_z“Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders.
-Revelation 5:5-6

In last Sunday’s worship our second reading had one of the visions of Jesus in heaven. These are very common in the Book of Revelation and give us a little bit of a glimpse of heaven. One thing that is somewhat common today, are people who claim to have seen something magnificent when they have had a near death experience. Look at the video about a youth, Zack Clements, who had one of these in Texas a few years ago.

What do we make of these accounts?

Revelation wants us to have a sense of wonder and hope in what God will do in the future. Whenever I hear accounts like these I have that same feeling. Although my faith is built upon what I have not seen yet, I trust in all that God has promised will come about in the future. Revelation promises that we will see Jesus in glory.
