The Lamb of God…His Two Responsibilities

Jesus Christ is identified as “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world,” notably as introduced by John the Baptist in John 1:29, and restated the next day in John 1:36. He is identified as the Lamb of God, Ἀμνὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ, the Perfect Sacrifice, sufficient to meet the perfect standards of a holy God (1 Peter 1:16).

This same Lamb appears again in Revelation in quite another manner. As the six seal is opened in Rev. 6:15-16, all of mankind seeks to hide, crying out to the mountains and rocks, saying “fall on us and hide us from Him Who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.”

Extraordinary! This very Lamb of God, slain before the foundation of the world (1 Peter 1:19; Rev. 13:8), is the same Lamb that will execute judgment, for we read that only the Lamb is able open the seventh seal (Rev. 8:1ff), since all judgment is given to Him (John 5:22).

Christ, as the Lamb of God, died to save those who believe from the wrath of this same Lamb!
