The Wrath of a Lamb

Bible theologians have generally spoken of the lamb and the lion sides of Jesus; one side as representing His meekness and love, the other, respectively, as representing His fierceness and fury.   I have come to see, however, that the meek Lamb is not so ‘meek’ after all, and should never be taken for granted.  According to a revelation that one holy man was exceptionally privileged to see, a lamb can also be furious – such shocking fury and wrath that even the rocks and the mountains cannot withstand.  See this with me:

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; 

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

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Revelation 6:15-17).

Moses, in his days, was declared the meekest man in the entire world, yet when some noble men thought to take advantage of him and that blessed virtue, they saw a side of him that none had ever known.  He invoked the earth to come to his aid against those strong and proud men.  He spelled out what their judgment would be, and it was so: “the earth opened her mouth” and swallowed them alive with their goods and entire families (Numbers 16:28-33).  It had never happened.  The meekness of a man taken for granted became the sudden tragedy of those loud men.

Some lamb may have a “great day of his wrath,” when even strong rocks and mighty mountains cannot come to the rescue of the provoker; a day when God Himself takes sides with that lamb against the guilty, whether they be kings or slaves, whether they be great and rich men or poor. For all that manifest wrath, he will still be no less a lamb.

Never take a lamb for granted.  You cannot tell when would come “the great day of his wrath.”  We know of the meekness of the lamb, but beware also of “the wrath of the Lamb.”
