The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him. And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. (John 1:29-34)
John the Baptist knew for sure that Jesus was the Lamb of God, the one who came to take away the SIN of the world. The scriptures tell us that it is the BLOOD that makes an atonement for the soul. [Leviticus 17:11, Hebrews 9:22]This was the very purpose of Christ [Messiah] in coming to this earth.
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy BLOOD out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; (Revelation 5:9)
It was the LAMB who was able to take the book of judgment.
It was the LAMB who was slain.
It was the LAMB who redeemed us to God!
It was the LAMB who redeemed us out of every kindred.
It was the LAMB who redeemed us out of every tongue [language].
It was the LAMB who redeemed us out of every people.
It was the LAMB who redeemed us out of every nation.
Who is this LAMB that did all of these things?
JESUS CHRIST IS THAT LAMB OF GOD.
GIVE HIM GLORY FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE!!
