The Lamb and the Scroll

11/09/2014 The Lamb and the Scroll: Revelation 5:1-14

scrollCharles Wesley wrote in one of his famous hymns, ‘Changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven we take our place, till we cast our crowns before Thee,
lost in wonder, love, and praise
. (Love Divine all Loves Excelling)

As John was caught up into heaven and became a witness of the vision of praise in the throne room of God, with the myriads of angels, thousands upon thousands; he must have felt lost in wonder, love and praise. Not only do we see the ABILITY (v.5) of the Lamb who was slain who sits at the right hand of the Father on the throne, but we also see his WORTHINESS. (v.9) to open the scroll. What is this scroll? This book? It is the eternal, unfolding plan of God to be carried out in final triumph because the Lamb is triumphant. He has conquered temptation and death itself.

God’s Reign and our Hope

11/09/2014 God’s Reign and our Hope: Revelation 4:1-11

calm seaIt’s helpful to remember that Revelation was written to give suffering Christians encouragement to endure the persecution that was increasingly common.

"Timeless" Truth #100 - by Ben Brown

bible-Timeless_Truth

Well, this is it. When Pastor John asked me to put some thoughts together for Emmanuel’s website, I didn’t realize we would reach this point in time. I doubt if Pastor John did either. I trust that these various thoughts have pointed you to a deeper, more exacting faith in God’s Word. It is so important to understand specifically what He said in the original dictated languages. We must be ever wary of translations into our language that they do not add or subtract from the original text. It is not an easy task to capture rich Hebrew and Greek words into English. J.B.Phillips once said that his work in translation was akin to rewiring a house with the power still on.
