Revelation 5:6-9 “... in the midst of the throne ... stood a lamb as it had been slain, having SEVEN HORNS and SEVEN EYES ... And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne ... And they sang a new song saying, you are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for you were slain, and HAVE REDEEMED US TO GOD BY YOUR BLOOD ...”
John saw a vision of a lamb with seven horns and seven eyes. The lamb denotes the humanity of Christ as a true man. The seven horns and seven eyes denote “the seven spirits of God” (Rev. 5:6) who are “sent out into all the earth” (7 archangels – Rev. 1:20; Rev. 5:6). The text states that One God Person sat on a single throne and the Lamb as one man person took the book from the God Person seated on the throne. The text does not say two God Persons. It says, One God Person and one man person just like 1 Timothy 2:5 speaks of One God the Father and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 2:5
The One God Person who is our Heavenly Father also became one man person as the child born and Son given (Heb. 2:14-17; 1 Tim. 3:16). This ONE MAN PERSON has “REDEEMED US” TO ONE “GOD” PERSON. Revelation 5:6-9 does not state that a second divine Person called God redeemed us to another first divine Person called God. Hence, there is clearly a distinction between Christ’s humanity and God’s divinity.
