The Song of the Redeemed Giving Praise to the Lamb of God
Lesson Number 6
- The Lord Jesus is worthy to open the book of future judgment.
- The Lord Jesus will be worshiped when the book of future judgment is opened.
- Get ready for the thrill of universal praise!
- Where does the vision of Revelation 5 take place?
- What does the scroll with the seven seals represent?
- Who was the only one worthy to open the scroll?
- In what two ways is the Lord Jesus presented in this chapter?
- How will Philippians 2:10 be fulfilled in this vision?
- In heaven, before the throne of God
- The scroll is a book of judgment. As each seal is broken, a judgment takes place on earth during the future Tribulation period.
- “The Lion of the tribe of Judah” – the Lord Jesus Christ
- As the Lion (verse 5) and the Lamb (verse 6).
- From verses 11-14 we see that the praise of heaven becomes universal honor for God and the Lamb. Verse 13 shows that every knee will bow, acknowledge, and honor Him.
- Discuss how Jesus Christ prevailed and triumphed, and is thus qualified to bring judgment on this earth.
- Review the truths proclaimed in our Redemption Song (Revelation 5:9-10). This is the song of the redeemed, that we as believers will sing in eternity.
- If you are emotionally exhilarated this week by a shout or cheer of celebration with others, stop and think about the universal praise we will hear for the Lord who redeemed us!
- “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5

- “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!” Revelation 5:13
