Fluffy Bests the Beast (Revelation 4-5)

We can imagine John rubbing his eyes in disbelief. His expectations have been completely overturned. He expected a fierce, conquering lion – he sees a bleeding lamb! It is the little lamb, Fluffy, who “has conquered” (Rev. 5:5). God’s conquering Messiah does not triumph through violence, bloodshed, or political or military force, but rather, through self-giving love.
