5:6 Lamb. Instead of a conquering Lion, John sees a Lamb before the throne about to receive the scroll with the title deed. The Lamb obviously had been slain, shedding His precious blood as the price of redemption, and yet it “stood,” alive again after death. He was the “Lamb without blemish and without spot…foreordained before the foundation of the world” (I Peter 1:19-20). The “seven eyes” speak of omniscience (Zechariah 3:9; 4:10). The “seven horns” represent omnipotence (Joshua 6:4-5, “the seven trumpets of ram’s horns”). The seven-fold Holy Spirit expresses omnipresence (Revelation 1:4).
