John 1:29 (LITV)
“On the morrow, John sees Jesus coming toward him and said,
Behold! The Lamb of God, taking away the sin of the world!”
“taking away” Greek: αἴρω aírō. The meanings are ‘to lift from the ground,’ ‘to lift in order to carry,’ and ‘to carry off.’ The sense ‘to lift up’ occurs for raising the hand in an oath (Rev. 10:5), raising the face in prayer (Jn. 11:41), and raising the voice in prayer (Acts 4:24).
The phrase, “Lamb Of God” is intended to bring forth a powerful declaration of the continuing deliverance force of the Lord for His people.
It says that the Blood of the Lamb is still the testimony of the identity of the Lord’s children. The Lamb’s Blood on the doorposts and the lintel/header of the entrance door to a home gives testimony that there is a Lamb on the inside and there is a genealogy through the Bloodline of the Lamb which relates that household unto the Creator of heaven and earth.
The Lamb Of God is reference to the great Passover.
Now the Blood is the central testimony of the original Passover and is the foundation from which all of the rest of the prophetic gestures in the Seder meal celebration take place.
This message will inspire you and drive you to your own personal experiences at the Lord’s Table where He makes you the guest of honor. Your deliverance from the evil one is found here.
