(Charles Spurgeon excerpts)
“Behold, I saw a Lamb looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne!” Revelation 5:6
Why should our exalted Savior appear in Heaven with His wounds? The wounds of Jesus are . . .
His sacred ornaments!
…Christ never was so matchless as when He hung on the cross! There we behold all His beauties in perfection.
The wounds of Jesus are far more beautiful than all the splendor and pomp of kings.
Jesus appears as the slain Lamb who sought our souls and redeemed them by His complete atonement.
His wounds are the trophies of His love and of His victory.
He has redeemed for Himself a great multitude which no one can number–His scars are the memorials of the fight. …
Every blood-drop says, “Pardon!”
Every wound says, “Life, eternal life!”
“In a loud voice they sang: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain–to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” Revelation 5:12
