The Rule Of The Lamb

"Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power"

The Messiah returned to heaven (see The Forerunner Of Man and Of God) after His Sacrifice, as witnessed by the apostles, when "a cloud received him out of their sight":

"1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? [see Israelite Monarchy - The Messiah]

1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power [see also The Two Signs Of Christ's Return].

1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that The Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

1:9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight." (Acts 1:6-9 KJV)

So too the Messiah arrived "with the clouds of heaven":

Earth

"7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to The Ancient of Days, and they brought him near before him. 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages [see Do You Speak In Tongues?], should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed." (Daniel 7:13-14 KJV)

According to Prophecy (see also What Happens After The Messiah Returns? and The Coming World Dictator), the wrath of the returning LORD will unfortunately be necessary because some of the nations of Satan's-deceived world, like the Devil himself, still think "we're too powerful for anyone to tell us what to do." Those with that adolescent-minded, rebellious attitude are going to have their foolish arrogance crushed out of them by the Rule of the Lamb.

"6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?" (Revelation 6:15-17 KJV)

The Messiah's arrival before The Father's Throne, as the triumphant Lamb of God, was followed by the granting of the authority to reign upon His return to earth - and to use whatever force is necessary to restore the earth, that He created (see The Kingdom Of The LORD God), to its original purity - from the planet of self-lusting and self-idolizing fools that it has become (see the Fact Finder question below).

"5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 5:9 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; 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 5:12 Saying with a loud voice,

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever." (Revelation 5:1-14 KJV)
