Seven Crowns Of The Lamb Part 7: BLESSING
| Spiry Tee
“...Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
Revelation 5:12 NKJV.
"Blessing" in Revelation 5:12 comes from the Greek word eulogia which means to speak well of. In other words "blessing" means praise. All the praise in heaven and earth must needs go to Jesus for He is worthy.
God has set His seal on Him that all creation should praise the one who never sinned, neither was guile found in Him. All the earth must praise the one who loved us so much to choose to die for us. The earth is alive and kept from God's wrath today because of the sacrifice He made.
People praise us when we do good. But the good you find in the world today is because of the influence of the Spirit of Christ in the hearts of men. He alone deserves the praise because without Him we can do nothing.
When we praise the Lord, either through music or dance, we affirm that Jesus was crowned with glory and honor and that He alone deserves all the praise.
Where true praise is, there is life and not death. When praise thunders, the revelation of the truth flows. People of praise are people of life and revelation for praise is not meant for the dead and neither celebration of the truth for those who go into silence.
In Hezekiah's words: "Indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back."
"For Sheol cannot thank You, Death cannot praise You; Those who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your truth. The living, the living man, he shall praise You, As I do this day; The father shall make known Your truth to the children."
“The Lord was ready to save me; Therefore we will sing my songs with stringed instruments All the days of our life, in the house of the Lord.” (Isaiah 38:17-20 NKJV).
The Lord Jesus deserves all the praise for all the good that is happening in my life. As I praise the Lord I also keep death at bay.
