Sermon Notes
Dr. Russ Martin
November 9, 2014
“The Lion and the Lamb”
Revelation 5
• John has seen the God of Power … Seated on his throne
• Now he sees Christ the Redeemer
Some keys to John’s vision:
• God is in control (vs. 1)
• The sadness of separation (vs. 4)
• The joy of redemption (vs. 5)
• The lion and the lamb (vs. 5-6)
The new song to our Redeemer
• His sacrificial death
• His emancipating death
• His universally atoning death
• His effective death
His redemption is complete - receiving it and joining into the song of praise
is our choice.
