WORTHY IS THE LAMB
John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
John 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Brothers, we have overcome this world, because we believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
John 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
We died in baptism, Jesus asked John to baptize him for an example to us. The cleansing blood of Jesus saved us from our sins, and we are righteous because Jesus was righteous. Brothers, we could never have been worthy of righteousness without Jesus. But, WORTHY IS THE LAMB. We are now worthy through Jesus.
John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
John 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
John 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
John 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
John 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
John 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
My brothers just as the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost of God are one so to are we with Him in Jesus Christ. Just as the Spirit the water and the blood bear are witness in earth, we must all agree as one just as they agree as one in verses 7 & 8 above.
John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
John 5:15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
John 5:16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
John 5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
John 5:19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
Brothers, walk with Jesus having been made righteous by his shed blood for our sins. We are new creatures in Christ Jesus. THE LAMB IS WORTHY! Jesus is worthy and by him we are made worthy. We could never have attained righteousness on our own works. If that were possible then Jesus would not have had to come and die for us. But, because He did, now are we in receipt of eternal life. Praise God!
God Bless you my brothers,
