King Jesus Christ is presented here as the Lamb, which was slain before the foundations of the world. (Rev. 13:8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names that are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. The Lamb is the Redeemer of all mankind from the sin of the flesh and spirit (1 Cor. 7:1) The Lamb is the Redeemer of all people from fleshly lust  (2 Peter 2:10-14)(1 Peter 2:11) Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; The Lamb whom John when he looked upon him as he walked, said, Behold the Lamb of God! (John 1:36) King Jesus Christ is the overcoming Lamb of God (Isaiah 53:5;7). 
He shall always bear the marks of his suffering and death on the cross in His glorified, resurrected body, and all those who believe on him can overcome through the blood atonment sacrifice which he made for all our sins (Rev.12:11) Remember, how he showed doubting Thomas his nail scared hands, when he appeared before his disciples after his resurrection (John 20:27).One day we will get to see him face to face and see the nail scares in his hands, but not as Thomas did.  
 The Lamb, now sits at the right hand of the Father (Heb. 1:3), but in that day he shall stand. (Isa 3:13). King Jesus is the redeeming sacrificial Lamb, he was slain but is now alive forever more. The three main qualifications and glorifications of King Jesus as the sacrificial Lamb are: (1) He was sacrificed for man's sins on the cross of Calvary, (2) He has all power to overcome every enemy; and (3) He enjoys all wisdom and intelligence to foresee and oversee his kingdom on earth and in heaven. (Matt. 28:18) (Col. 2:3) (Heb. 11:33) (Isaiah 11:2). 


King Jesus is presented in this picture as a majestic Lion. This means that he is a ruler, because a lion rules his territory. He is the strongest among beast and does not turn a side for any. (Prov.30:29) There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going. A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any;. God's power is exhibited in a lion as restraining power (Daniel 6:22) He is known in scripture as the roaring lion of the tribe of Judah, he roars when seeking his prey, and is excellent in the destruction of his enemies (Gen. 49:9-10) (Isaiah 31:4) (1 King 13:24) (1 King 20:36) The Roaring Lion is seen as God executing judgment against the disobedient (Isa. 38:13-14) (Ho. 5:14).
King Jesus is known as having holy boldness in (Pr. 28:1) The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are as bold as a lion. He was bold when rebuking the Pharisees in (Mat. 22: 15). In (Rev. 5:5) King Jesus is seen as the only one worthy to open the book and the seals. Holy angels were not found worthy to open the book, nor were there any mortals found worthy, nor was there any demonic being of Satan's realm found worthy to open the seals or look into the book.
The designation of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and the Root of David shows a messianic connection with the Davidic covenant and Kings Jesus right to the throne of Israel in his second coming (2 Sam. 7:16) (Isa.11:1)  The vision of King Jesus in the Word of God shows him as both Savior (Redeemer) and Soverign (Ruler) in his first and second coming. Because he was found faithful and true in obeying the one who sent him to redeem fallen man back to God, whom he often acknowledged as Father before many,  he has the right to judge, possess, and rule the earth. He has this right because of his submission all the way to death on the cross. (Phil.2:8-11). He defeated death, hell, and the grave when he rose the third day victorious as King.


King Jesus is now presented standing between the Lamb and the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, ready to be the redeemer (Lamb) and the mighty warrior (Lion) who rescues his people from the darkness of sin and shame. He is holding a vial containing the precious prayers of the saint's of God filled with ordors. This golden vial is the saints holding up their prayers of petitions, supplications, spiritual warfare for themselves and intercessions for others to the sovereign King and coming judge of all he earth both now by his spirit and in his second coming.(Rev.5:8) The odors are a sweet smell, as described by Apostle Paul in the book of Philippians chapter 4 and verse 18; an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. "Has the LAMB within you become a LION ?"
