Worthy is the Lamb


  • What does Jesus do?
  • Does He do it today?
  • Can He do it for me?
  • Will He do it for me?

Read and discover just What Jesus does today… in this modern world and for our generation…

What does He do?

Everybody who has ever had a personal confrontation with Jesus Christ knows that Jesus Does Something.    The Savior we serve is not a god placed on a shelf who never does anything, never breathes, never feels, never sees, never knows; but the Jesus we know is a Savior Who does things.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me… “

Jesus quoted this one day in Nazareth as He read in the synagogue.  They gave Him the Scroll and told Him to read.    He quoted this very passage which is found in Isaiah 61:11.      

 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord hath…

(1) anointed me to preach good tidings to the meek;

(2) He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted;

(3) He has sent me to comfort all that mourn;

(4) He sent me to give beauty for ashes;

(5) the oil of joy for the mourning;

(6) the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.  (parentheses mine)

Isaiah 61 tells us what Jesus does.

  • He is the Anointed One Who preaches Good Tidings to the meek.
  • He binds up the broken hearted.
  • He is comforts all who mourn.
  • He restores beauty to the disgraced and defamed.
  • He gives joy in the place of mourning and
  • The Garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.

What does He do?

But Jesus undid what the devil did.

Three things happened when Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden.

  • spiritual death came on the entire human race.
  • man was alienated from his Creator and
  • a Curse came on this world.

That’s what the devil did.     But Jesus undid what the devil did.  Jesus fixed the mess that Adam made.  Where man died spiritually through Adam’s disobedience, we are made spiritually alive by our faith in Jesus.  When sin drove a wedge of division between the Creator and the creation, Jesus came and reconciled man to God… He reestablished our fellowship with the Father.   And Jesus became a curse to deliver us from the curse.

Gal 3:13 We are redeemed from the curse…

This is what He does:

  • He reconciles man to God.
  • He reestablishes our fellowship with God.
  • He justifies us and makes us righteous.

Wow!  Would you like to be Righteous?  Faith in Jesus Christ literally makes us Righteous.  Jesus moves into our heart, takes our sin and gives us His Righteousness.

2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Being Righteous means we have a right standing with the Father. Righteousness is not what we do, Righteousness is who we are. It means we are justified.  (Made Just-as-if-I’d never sinned) He sanctifies us.  He sets us apart as His own creation.   And soon we will be glorified by taking our garment of human flesh off and putting on our garment of a glorified, resurrection body.  Then, we will live in perfection.   We will think in perfection and we will be everything God ever created us to be. Hallelujah.

What does He do? He’s at the right hand of the Father in Heaven interceding for you and me.     He is personally praying for the unity of His body.   He is the Head of the Church and He is directing its affairs.    He is supervising angels and spiritual authorities and powers.

What does He do?   He saves those who are lost in sin.  People just like Nicodemus.

He restores broken homes just like the woman at the well who had five husbands and who was living with a man who was not her husband.

He heals the sick and afflicted just like the man who was lame for 38 years and   patiently waited by the Pool of Bethesda for his healing.

What does he do?   He feeds the hungry and fills the empty just as He fed the 5000 with a few fishes and a few loaves of bread.  He satisfies the longing heart with spiritual food that can and will sustain through times of great distress and disappointment.

What does He do?  He forgives sinners.  Check out the adulterous woman who was caught in the very act of sin in John chapter 8.  I am guilty.  You are guilty.  We all are guilty.   “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God…”  (Rom 3:23) And Jesus is the Great Forgiver.  Not only does He forgive, but He removes our sin from us as far as the east is from the west…. to a place where they do not even exist anymore.

What does He do?  He gives life to the dead just like He gave life to His friend Lazarus who had been dead for four days.  At his tomb when they rolled back the stone He said “Lazarus… come forth” and life came into that four day old corpse… a corpse that was already decomposing.   The power of God exploded in it and gave that dead body life and brought it out of the grave.  Jesus is our Guarantee, our Warranty that we too shall overcome death and the grave.  At His voice, the dead shall be raised and those of us who remain at His Coming will be changed instantly… at the blink of an eye… and we shall be like Him.  Hallelujah.

What does He do?  He comforts the distressed… In John chapter 14 He gathered His disciples together and He said “let not your heart be troubled… you believe in God believe also in me…”   What a profound Word!  We have the capacity to “let not… ” We can stop our heart from worrying and being stressed out; we can prevent our heart from being afraid and from being filled with anxiety.   When times are tough and impossible situations loom we can “let not” and prevent worry from overcoming us and rendering us helpless and hopeless.

What does He do?  He becomes poor that we might become rich! This Son of the Most High God became poor… He was Heaven’s Prince… He was at the right hand of God… He was administrating all of heaven’s affairs …. He was in Ivory Palaces…. He was in charge of all creation…. But the Lamb of God became poor that we might become rich.

2Co 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

He chose poverty to give us prosperity.  He chose to “have not” in order that we might “have.”  He was the richest, wealthiest individual in all of creation, yet He willingly laid down His wealth and took on our poverty.  “For our sakes” he became poor that we might, through His poverty, become rich.

He came down that we might go up.   He was sent into the jaws of hell that we might ascend into the glorious realms of heaven.   He had no garment to call His own except those that were given to Him as gifts.  He said the birds of the air have nests and the animals of the field have homes but the Son of Man hath not a place to lay His head… a “homeless”  Son of God is today, right now, at the Father’s side building extravagant and unimaginable mansions for us.  Hallelujah.

What does He do?  He holds all things together!

Col 1:15 …He is before all things and by Him all things consist… (hold together)

There is only One Element that keeps all creation in perfect balance and harmony… and that is the influence and the Power and the Authority of the Lamb of God.   The planets are kept in orbit; the stars are set on fire and kept on fire, the suns continue to give forth their light, all the galaxies hang in perfect balance; everything in creation, from quarks to quasars, consists and holds together because of Jesus. The Lamb of God.

Worthy is the Lamb.

Since we know something of Who He is and What He does… the third question we want to answer is this:

 Why does He do it?    (next blog)
