The Lamb Who Is a Prophet

The Lamb Who Is a Prophet

Passage: Revelation 1:5-3:14

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: The Victory of the Lamb

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: judgment, prophet, testimony, witnessing

One of the Lamb’s key responsibilities while on the earth was the witness, or testimony, of God. He is praised in Revelation for his faithfulness to this task, and his followers are those who carry forward that same testimony. In the Old Testament, this role belonged to the prophets. They were, in essence, God’s messengers who called the people from sinfulness to repentance and warned them of God’s coming judgment. In this sense, we are called to consider the message of the Lamb and what it says about God’s work in the world and in eternity. And we are also called to consider how the Lamb’s followers share in his work of witnessing. Rev 1:5; 3:14; 12:17; 19:10
