In the Old Testament: Where is the Lamb?
The Jewish Nation has been saying “Where is the Lamb?” for over 3,500 years. God instituted the sacrificial system for the Remission of individual Sins by the shedding of blood.
Every week throughout a Jews entire life he would be constantly searching for the best lamb he could get for the sacrifices he needed to make for himself and his family.
When Abraham made the trip with Isaac to Mt. Moriah to sacrifice his son on an alter to the Lord, Isaac asked the question that would echo throughout time by the Jewish people…”Where is the Lamb?”
Rabbis today are discussing how and when to re-institute the Sacrificial System. They know they need a Temple. We know from the book of Revelation that the Temple will be rebuilt without the Court of the Gentiles. The dome of the rock now occupies that area.
The Rabbis want a Temple to be prepared for their coming Messiah. SOON, the Nation of Israel will again be saying…”Where is the Lamb?”.
In the New Testament: Who is the Lamb?
Then when Jesus approached John to be baptized, John exclaimed: “Behold…The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” The question of “where is the Lamb?” was answered once and for all time by the Jewish Prophet John who himself exclaimed “I am The Voice of one crying in the Wilderness; make ready the way of the Lord”. It was John’s purpose to announce the coming Messiah to the Nation of Israel after 400 years.
The Nation of Israel had cried out to God for 400 years, yet God was silent…UNTIL the Jewish Prophet John the Baptizer broke the silence with Behold, The Lamb of GOD….. and GOD replied from the Heavens above…”This is MY beloved SON (JESUS) in whom I AM well pleased.
In the Book of Revelation: The lamb becomes the LION
Then finally the Lamb of God is identified as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Y’shua Hamaciah / Jesus the Christ / Jesus the Messiah, The Lamb of God who was “worthy to be slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing…To HIM who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, Be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever…AMEN”.
JESUS came the first time to fulfill the role of The Lamb who would be Slain for the Sins of Mankind.
JESUS will come the 2nd time to fulfill the role of The Lion of the Tribe of Judah in Judgment with Fire in His Eyes.
