The Lion’s Roar

A few days ago I saw a picture of a lion and his cub on a rock outcropping called Simba Kopjes in the Serengeti and immediately Holy Spirit began speaking to me that He is calling his pride across the nations in droves but the world does not recognize it yet. Imagine with me the Lion of Judah opening his mighty mouth and roaring across the nations! Can you see the sound reverberations?! Do you hear His call?! Click here and scroll down to see this amazing picture!

A few minutes after seeing this picture a dear friend and soul Sister sent me a text with a word from Holy Spirit from Isaiah 31:4,5.

This is what the Lord says to me:

“As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey—and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor—so the Lord Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights. Like birds hovering overhead, the Lord Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it.”

Oh, it gets even better! Below is some of my daily Bible reading from the same day, which I read after my friend’s text.

He lifts up a banner for the distant nations,
he whistles for those at the ends of the earth.
Here they come,
swiftly and speedily!
 Not one of them grows tired or stumbles,
not one slumbers or sleeps;
not a belt is loosened at the waist,
not a sandal strap is broken.
 Their arrows are sharp,
all their bows are strung;
their horses’ hooves seem like flint,
their chariot wheels like a whirlwind.
 Their roar is like that of the lion,
they roar like young lions;
they growl as they seize their prey
and carry it off with no one to rescue. Isaiah 5:26-29. 

Did you catch in verse 26 of Isaiah 5 that the Lord whistles for the distant nations?!! I see two messages here. God has raised His banner over all the nations and is calling or whistling to us across the nations to come together as the mighty warriors that we are for an epic battle in the spiritual realms. We don’t need to fear any repercussions because HE will shield and deliver us, HE will pass over and rescue us!

Precious One, seize, which means to attack and take control of, your prey-the enemy, today and everyday, by the power of Holy Spirit in you through prayer for the glory of the kingdom of God! Amen?

  1. We fight on, but we have already won the battle, thanks to Christ Jesus! Still, we must fight with the strength of God at our side to keep ourselves from being polluted by this world’s lusts! But it is still nice to know that when we slip to sin, and we all do, we have greater grace than our sin!

    God is an awesome God!


      1. I won’t be able to understand why God loves us in the way He does until I live with Him in glory.

        It is an awesome love indeed! Enjoy your holiday, Terese.


  2. When I was a young(er) man, I wondered how people could be so blind as to not see the world as it is…today, I fully understand. He chooses the hearts and gives sight to the faithful.
