In Rev. 5:9-14, John was taken to the courtroom of Heaven and is shown what God is about to do on earth. In CHAPTER 4 he listens to the praises given to Jehovah. In CHAPTER 5, after the praises cease, he sees a book that can only be opened by one man – Jesus. No other being is worthy! Why? Because He died to self. This is how the Lamb that was slain, became the WORTHY LAMB OF GOD. By following His example, we too will be lifted up.
