It's recorded that Jesus displayed a tough side but was also tender and merciful. In Revelation 5, Jesus Christ is called the “Lion of the Tribe of Judah” as well as a “Lamb”. This message examines two hallmarks of Christ’s leadership in the World Tomorrow, His tough love side and His gentle side, the steel side and the velvet side – how He will deal with His enemies and how He will shepherd His flock. As His saints preparing for future rule under Him, this message displays lessons to be learned now.
