Third week in a six-week series called The End of All Things. In this episode, we explore Revelation 5. In worship, we sing, This is the feast of victory for our God. Alleluia. Worthy is Christ, the Lamb who was slain, whose blood set us free be people of God. Power, riches, wisdom and strength, and honor and blessing and glory are his. Sing with all the people of God and join in the hymn of all creation: Blessing, honor, glory and might be to God and the Lamb forever. Amen. For the Lamb who was slain has begun his reign. Alleluia. Alleluia.
These are the very words and imagery that you find in Revelation chapter 5. In this chapter, we hear again of the good news in Jesus. We experience how all of creation celebrates and praises the crucified and resurrected Jesus. In this episode we explore the scroll and the seven seals. What does the scroll and the seals have to do with our relationship to God and Jesus? What does it have to do with the relationship between God and Jesus?
