The more we look at Revelation Chapters 4 and 5, the more we get to see heaven’s stability because of its complete confidence in the Lamb and the One who sits on the throne. The things written in the scroll are not scary, because they know the One who wrote the scroll and the One who holds it. This is the perspective the Holy Spirit wanted us to see first so that we would have the same confidence, and the same stability as heaven, so that when the world would begin to shake we would know that we are and will always be held by the One who holds all things together. In this week’s text (Revelation 5:11-14) we hear two more “songs” from heaven. It seems that each time one group sings to the Lamb another group is compelled to join in until finally all of creation joins the song they were created to sing. And then, when the songs are finished there is a single declaration made, “Amen”. Heaven agrees with what will come next, heaven is so sure of the character of God, so confident in the love of God; heaven so desires for the Lamb to receive the glory He deserves that it says “yes” to whatever it will take to bring it to pass. That’s what chapter 5 calls us to, to not just tell Jesus but to trust Him, to agree with Him. When the Lamb takes the scroll it will be for His glory, it will be for our redemption, it will be what He planned and so we must trust Him enough to believe that it will be for our good.
