JESUS , the Messiah , the promised Saviour, King of the Jews (Matthews gospel).
JESUS , the Lamb of God, the perfect and ultimate sacrifice (John 1).
JESUS , the CONQUERING LION of the tribe of JUDAH and the LAMB that was SLAIN.
LION and LAMB : two aspects of the NATURE of CHRIST.
*I am not going to write a "study" on this as many have before but I felt to share some added thoughts and revelations that I have received for THIS TIME and HOUR.
*These 2 natures of Christ can seem almost a paradox (a seemingly contradictory statement even if actually well founded or true).
>When I consider a lamb , it is docile , has a tenderness about it, non- aggressive and a follower, runs to join the flock when threatened and basically born to be "slaughtered".
>While a LION , it is the king of the jungle, noble, walking with a dignified gait, energetic , has no fear, strong and all conquering.
IN THIS HOUR as the sons of GOD are ARISING in their KINGLY AUTHORITY.
THE WALK and CALL is:
> one of total surrender to Our King and Lord.
> to be a habitation of the fullness of God, not just a visitation of His Presence at times.
> one of revelation of knowing their identity in Christ, fully awakened to who we are.
>to function in their kingly mandate knowing Jesus as King of kings.
>administrators of His justice and righteousness upon the earth.
>bold and courageous, going forth in mercy and truth.
>powerful representatives of the realm of The Kingdom of Heaven.
>carriers of the seal of Christ , our King.
MATURE SONS WALKING AS CHRIST DID , whose inherent nature is LOVE.
*Oh my deepest desire is to walk as a son (daughter) of LOVE, a bridal army going forth, kings, legislating in LOVE.
*The prophet Bob Jones had an encounter in heaven where he heard Jesus ask the many just one question :
"DID YOU LEARN TO LOVE".
*A well known scripture of 1 COR 13, paraphrased
>I can speak eloquently and with angelic ecstasy, speak Gods word powerfully , and have faith that moves mountains
BUT if I have NOT love, I am a clanging cymbal, I am nothing, and I gain nothing.
*That sacrificial love of Jesus , the lamb that was slain for humanity.
* "Love one another the way I loved you. This is the best way to love. PUT YOUR LIFE on the LINE for your FRIENDS" Jn15:12-13 (amp).
*HAVE I, WE learnt to love like that............. oh that I know Him , who is LOVE ; Have I allowed the fire of His love to totally infuse me.
*I have seen His tears of LOVE > His longing that we know how much He loves us and that we too know that we are sons of Love.
YES WE ARE CALLED TO WALK AS SONS and KINGS in the HOUR in all
THAT CALL IS ONE of love and as LOVE.
May we WALK so intimately close to Our Lord in the bridal chamber of His Love, in passionate pursuit of God Himself .
Submerged continually in the river of Christ and His Love , responding to the sound of deep calls unto deep.
Fully knowing and having revelation of our value and identity is Him alone.
Walking as LOVE (our predestined DNA) as Christ did upon the earth.
KINGS REPRESENTING the KINGDOM of HEAVEN , the KINGDOM of LOVE
THE LION and THE LAMB
