An unblemished and spotless lamb foreknown

 

And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, having been sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong messenger proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loosen its seals?” And no one in the heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it. And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. And one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. See, the Lion of the tribe of Yehuḏah {1} the Root of Dawid {2} overcame to open the scroll and to loosen its seven seals.” {Footnotes: 1Heb. 7:14 2Isa. 11:1 & 10.} (Revelation 5:1-5 The Scriptures 1998+)

And they sang a renewed song, saying, “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals, because You were slain, and have redeemed us to Elohim by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and made us sovereigns and priests to our Elohim, and we shall reign upon the earth.”{1 Footnote: 1Dan. 7:18-27. }
(Revelation 5:9-10 The Scriptures 1998+)

And Yitsḥaq spoke to Aḇraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” And he said, “See, the fire and the wood! But where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” And Aḇraham said, “My son, Elohim does provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” And the two of them went together.
(Genesis 22:7-8 The Scriptures 1998+)

and said, “By Myself I have sworn, declares יהוה {Jehovah}, because you have done this, and have not withheld your son, your only son, that I shall certainly bless you, and I shall certainly increase your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore, and let your seed possess the gate of their enemies. “And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
(Genesis 22:16-18 The Scriptures 1998+)

On the next day Yoḥanan saw יהושע {Jeshua} coming toward him, and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world!{1 Footnote: 1Mt. 1:21, Titus 2:14, 1 John 3:5 & 8.} “This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has become before me, for He was before me.’{1 Footnote: 1See v. 15.} “And I did not know Him, but that He might be revealed to Yisra’ĕl,  therefore I came immersing in water.” And Yoḥanan bore witness, saying, “I have seen the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. “And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to immerse in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on Him, this is He who immerses in the Set-apart Spirit.’ “And I have seen and have witnessed that this is the Son of Elohim.” Again the following day, Yoḥanan was standing with two of his taught ones, and looking at יהושע walking, he said, “See the Lamb of Elohim!”
(John 1:29-36 The Scriptures 1998+)

And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear, knowing that you were redeemed from your futile way of life inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for your sakes, who through Him believe in Elohim who raised Him from the dead and gave Him esteem, so that your belief and expectation are in Elohim.
(1 Peter 1:17-21 The Scriptures 1998+)

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name, who were born, not of blood nor of the desire of flesh nor of the desire of man, but of Elohim. And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent {1} among us, and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth. {Footnote: 1An indication that His birth was during the Festival of Booths}. Yoḥanan bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because He was before me.’ ” And out of His completeness we all did receive, and favour upon favour, for the Torah was given through Mosheh – the favour and the truth came through יהושע Messiah.
(John 1:12-17 The Scriptures 1998+)

Therefore, having girded up the loins of your mind, being sober, set your expectation perfectly upon the favour that is to be brought to you at the revelation of יהושע Messiah, as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts in your ignorance, instead, as the One who called you is set-apart, so you also should become set-apart in all behaviour, because it has been written, “Be set-apart, for I am set-apart.”
(1 Peter 1:13-16 The Scriptures 1998+)

‘For I am יהוה your Elohim, and you shall set yourselves apart. And you shall be set-apart, for I am set-apart. And do not defile yourselves with any creeping creature that creeps on the earth. ‘For I am יהוה who is bringing you up out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. And you shall be set-apart, for I am set-apart.
(Leviticus 11:44-45 The Scriptures 1998+)

And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear, knowing that you were redeemed from your futile way of life inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for your sakes, who through Him believe in Elohim who raised Him from the dead and gave Him esteem, so that your belief and expectation are in Elohim.
(1 Peter 1:17-21 The Scriptures 1998+)

“Speak to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘Be set-apart, for I יהוה your Elohim am set-apart.

(Revelation 5:9-10 The Scriptures 1998+)

saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb having been slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and respect and esteem and blessing!” And every creature which is in the heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying, “To Him sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb, be the blessing and the respect and the esteem and the might, forever and ever!”
(Revelation 5:12-13 The Scriptures 1998+)

And I heard a voice out of the heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder, and I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps.
(Revelation 14:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

And I saw like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those overcoming the beast and his image and his mark and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of Elohim.
(Revelation 15:2 The Scriptures 1998+)

Let all that have breath praise Yah. Praise Yah!
(Psalms 150:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

My mouth speaks the praise of יהוה, And let all flesh bless His set-apart Name, Forever and ever.

(Hebrews 12:22-24 The Scriptures 1998+)

And when the living creatures give esteem and respect and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and bow before Him who lives forever and ever, and they cast their crowns before the throne, saying, “You are worthy, O יהוה, to receive esteem and respect and power, for You have created all, and because of Your desire they are, and were created.” (Revelation 4:9-11 The Scriptures 1998+)
