I felt like I had exploded inside. This was the missing link to what God was saying and doing in my life. The lion was loose. It was a new season for the Church. The Lord was beginning to speak through His Church in a New Way.
What does it mean for the Lion to be loosed from his bushes?
The principle of the verse is very relevant to what the Lord is wanting to say to His Church in this hour. The LION represents a devouring force, able to destroy all before it.
There are two lions
The Devil – As a roaring lion
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion walks about, seeking whom he may devour.
The devil as a roaring lion has increased his activity and caught many Christian people unawares. This enemy of our souls has risen up against the Lord, and His anointed, to hinder them in their conquest of the nations. He will come with great fury and dark intentions and will target those who are weak and defenseless first.
Unfortunately many families have fallen apart, and many ministries destroyed, needlessly. They did not heed the trumpet to prepare for the onslaught which was to come. Never before has there been such a massive onslaught against the very foundations of Godliness in our societies
This trumpet is still sounding. Do not think that you can continue living a half hearted Christian life and stay in semi victory. You have been marked by the enemy as being a strategic target. BEWARE ! GET READY ! GUARD YOUR HEART ! SEEK THE LORD !
Some of the target areas of the enemy at this time are as follows. You will see greater distortions of role and function in these than ever before.
- THE FAMILY UNIT. NO LONGER A VALUED INSTITUTION IN SOCIETY. IN SOME CASES SEEN AS IRRELEVANT AND EVEN OBSTRUCTIONIST TO THE GREATER GOOD OF THE COMMUNITY.
- THE MALE ROLE. THE REVERSAL OF ROLES WILL CONTINUE TO GATHER MOMENTUM AND INCREASE UNTIL MANHOOD IS PERCEIVED AS AN INFERIOR STATUS IN SOCIETY.
- NATIONALISM AND RACISM. DEEP SEATED PREJUDICES WILL EMERGE AND BRING GREAT DIVISION.
- THE MUSIC OF THE CHRUCH. BECOMING THE FOCUS RATHER THAN THE VEHICLE OF WORSHIP.
- THE YOUTH WILL POLARISE AROUND TWO EXTREMES. PASSIVITY OR VIOLENCE WITH NO NORMAL MIDDLE GROUND.
- LAW BREAKING. THE LAW MAKERS WILL BECOME THE LAW BREAKERS. INSTITUTIONS PERVIOUSLY RESPECTED WILL BE REGARDED WITH SUSPICIION AND UNCERTAINTY.
- LIFE AND DEATH. THE SEPARATION BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH WILL BE TAKE AWAY AS DEATH’S FINALITY IS REMOVED, AND DEATH BECOMES AND INSTRUMENT FOR SOCIETAL ADJUSTMENTS.
JESUS CHRIST – As the Lion of Judah
And one of the elders said unto me, weep not; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
The Lion is the KING of the Beasts and He has the first choice. Judah was to be as a lion, and be given the first choice for His inheritance. Judah can inherit the first son’s inheritance, if he will be a Lion like man. There is no way that you will inherit the FIRST SON’S inheritance without becoming Lion like in your spiritual walk.
He has a strategic plan for His people. He is coming to His church in glory and in power, and impart His anointing to His people for this great and awesome day of the Lord.
My friends, both the lions are roaring in a new way at this time of history. This time is for war. I am delivering a prophetic word to your hearts at this time. Psalms 2 shows us so clearly the world roaring in rage against the church, casting its cords and bands away. In other words, seeking to destroy the cords and the bands of righteousness that has held our society together.
The world’s roar of defiance, disturbance and destruction is being heard around the globe. However, the roar of the LION of the tribe of Judah is beginning to swell within the church, and as it does it will bring forth the Lion like activity.
Within a few short years there will be powerful spiritual warfare and prophetic ministries, pulling down strongholds of the enemy, in their regions, where the devil has had control for many years. This wave of the lion roar will be a tremendous season of dynamic confrontation between the Church and the works of darkness.
Those who have heeded the call and prepared themselves to be a people with prophetic voice will see great victories. It is important that you begin to adjust your life and ministry. You are needed on the front line of God’s plan, not sitting back as an observer.
The Lion Will Come
Sometimes people decide to ignore the word of the Lord, hoping that it will go way and impact their lives. I can guarantee to you that both lions are coming
- The Lion Has Come Out of Hiding
The time of concealment is over. Things that have been hidden and covered over are now being openly displayed before the church. The Lion of the tribe of Judah has come out of hiding to take over complete control of His Church and we will realize just how much has been hidden from us until this time in history. Thank God there is a new wave of evangelism and world missions now sweeping the ALERT church.
- The Lion Has Found His Prey
Specific promises and judgments will be seen in the Church. When the lion finds His prey it means that he has located and locked onto a specific target, and is moving in for the kill. The season of generalities is over. Religions jargon and superficial prayers are now no longer acceptable. The Lord is coming to His Church to lead her in specific directions regarding ministry. Jesus will direct His Church to address specific issues at specific times. Churches and leaders who generalize and simply fill in time doing mundane things will find that their people will go looking for a church where the leaders are attempting to hear the voice of God and obey it with all of their heart. It has come as an awesome realization to the church in this hour, that the Lord is now putting His finger on specific issues, and attitudes, that have been allowed to prevail for far too long.
- The Lion Has Risen To Prominence
We are about to see the Prophetic movement blossom and emerge as a great move of the Holy Spirit. It will not be a movement that exalts a few outstandingly gifted men, who can prophesy at will. But it will be the proliferation of a prophetic anointing upon the whole church. The people of God will be raised to be a prophetic people. Apostles and prophets will emerge and be recognized. They will not be according to the role model that has been set by some of the leaders, attempting to bring such a move to pass. The Church itself, as in her people, will arise in this hour, to GREAT PROMINENCE, AND GREAT AUTHORITY, AND GREAT VOICE and the leaders of the Prophetic Movement will be in the foundations, not on the thrones.
PROPHETIC PEOPLE WILL DECREE A THING, AND IT WILL COME TO PASS.
This will be the Church’s finest hour, but it will not come without some pain and adjustment. We must recognize that God is restoring the last two ascension gift ministries to His Church according to more stringent requirements than those He allowed for the other gifts. These last two gifts of Jesus to His Church, are for the final maturation of the saints, and therefore must be restored exactly according to the plan of God.
1 Samuel 17:34 & 36 we see the account of David as a shepherd boy defending his lambs against the devouring lion
“And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock.”
“Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear, and the uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.”
David rose up in the anointing of God and slew the lion with his bare hands. Delivering the lamb back into the fold. Even as the enemy is mounting his offensive against the Church, we see the Lord of the church raising up a DAVID generation, who are more than able to combat and destroy the lions of satanic opposition. God is giving to those who have a heart after Him, the capacity to be more than conquerors, whatever the enemy might bring against them.
In fact, part of God’s strategy to produce a LION LIKE PEOPLE is to have them face the lion, and defeat him. To have faces as lions, you must face the lion.
The Church Is To Be The Lion’s Roar
Following are some scriptures that shows God’s intentions for His people to rise up in this hour to be a Lion LIKE Nation.
“The lion has roared, who will not fear? The Lord has spoken, who can but prophesy?’
“The wicked flee when no man pursues, but the righteous are as bold as lion”
“Behold the people shall rise up as a GREAT LION and lift himself up as a young lion. He shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain.”
“Blessed is he who enlarges Gad; he dwells as a lion, and tears the arm with the crown of the head”
“The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up zeal like a man of war; he shall cry, yes, roar, he shall prevail against his enemies.
“Behold, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof”
“ Judah is a lion’s whelp; from the prey, my son, thou art gone up; he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who will rouse him up?
In conclusion the Lion of the tribe of Judah is about to ROAR like never before so it will push back every powers of hell from not devouring the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
RISE WITH HIM !
