311. In the celestial sense murdering means being unjustifiably angry with the Lord, hating Him and wanting to blot out His name. These are the people who are said to crucify Him; and they would actually do so, as the Jews did, if He came into the world as before. This is meant by the 'lamb standing as if slain' (Rev. 5:6; 13:8); and by 'being crucified' (Rev. 11:8; Heb. 6:6; Gal. 3:1).
