The prophets longed to see the fulfillment of prophsey hoping it would occur in their lifetime. The angels longed to see prophsey fulfilled so they would have a greater understanding it's intent.

The shoot of Jesse refers to the coming of Jesus. The bearing of fruit fortellls the emergence of Christianity through Christ. In chapter 53 v. 2 we are told that Jesus will be seen externally as ordinary, unimpressive.

The Lamb is at the center because it represents Christ and His purity making Him the only one worthy to stand squarely before the Father. The only one who can intercede for us. We can only keep Him in the center of our lives by acknowledging the stain our own sin and purity of the slain yet living Lamb, Jesus Christ.

I believe Pastor Rick was saying it took the courage, strength and determination of a lion to carry out what Jesus had to accomplish. Yet it takes the heart and purity of a lamb to be worthy of standing in the center of the throne room before our heavenly Father.
