The Bible isn’t that hard.
It really isn’t. The whole Bible can be explained.
You know that question you’ve always had, the one no one could ever answer? It doesn’t matter what it is. It has a simple answer and I’ll show you how to find it.
This is better than the Da Vinci Code, better than numerology, better than gnostic secrets. This reveals Truth that makes sense to you.
You can have satisfying answers to questions everyone tells you can’t be answered. All you have to do is ask the obvious questions.
Revelation 5:6 (KJ21) And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne and the four living beings, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth.
Let’s face it. This is weird. Like most of Revelation, it’s a freaky image that honestly doesn’t make any sense. Obviously there has never been a lamb that had seven eyes on it.
If you take it alone, as most students do, you can spend years studying it and never know what it really is saying. But if you use the rest of the Bible to explain it, it’s easy!
Zechariah 3:9 (KJ21) For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua: upon one stone shall be seven eyes...
This is equally strange, but helpful because it’s the exact same image. It’s the same because neither stones nor lambs should have seven eyes. Ever.
But let’s add these verses together. Suppose that, rather than being isolated and disconnected versions, these are two parts of a puzzle piece God hid in random places in the Bible.
Everyone knows Jesus is the lamb of God (John 1:36). Everyone also knows that Jesus is our rock (1 Corinthians 10:4). So if we put these facts to use, then Revelation is saying that Jesus has seven eyes.
But that’s not much better, as answers go. Picturing Jesus with seven eyes is still pretty weird! So what does it mean?
