Past the pain comes reward through faith in Jesus Christ


Lions and the Church

I wrote this on December 3, 2020; for the Holy Spiritual people, you’ll see.

Today’s prophetic declaration metaphorically acknowledges the truth that lions are the kings of the jungle.

Firstly, In the natural world, lions have been granted dominion over their habitat, and they rule with grace and dignity. Their regal presence commands respect and admiration.

Based on research conducted by conservationists and Holy Spirit’s reveal, it is a known fact that despite their strength, lions are frequently preyed upon by jackals and hyenas.

The lion is constantly bothered by jackals and hyenas while humbly guarding the pride.

That said, a pack of hyenas surround the solitary lion, perceiving it as vulnerable due to the absence of other lions. They intend to attack and kill the lion out of fear that it may threaten their survival as a predator. The hyenas are determined and unwavering in their pursuit of the lion.

These gang-like predators encircle the lion while thinking it stands alone, seeing it as defenseless when that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

The hyenas are determined to kill the lion out of fear that the King of the jungle might ruin them first. They encircle the creature like a gang of wolves, intending to take it down because they are impressive.

The hyena attempt to intimidate with its growls and bared teeth, but in reality, it is a weak creature that lacks formidable fighting abilities due to its small size. It sounds more like cackling.

I find it remarkable that a hyena is one of the smallest mammals in its class. Similarly, the least, therefore, hunting the noble in packs; they have no power against the lion singly.

I find it interesting through further research that in some cultures, hyenas are thought to influence people’s spirits; ironically, it comes as no surprise.

Therefore I conclude that hocus pocus witchcraft is attached to the lesser of the Spiritual species.

Moving forward, let’s take a look at the jackal. Seemingly, Jackals are opportunistic predators. These animals commonly deny their involvement and don’t always present themselves as dangerous openly. Nonetheless, they, too, hunt in packs.

Fact:

Jackals are known to attack a human. In saying that, hyenas and their fellow allies come in with a nasty and often vile disposition to encircle the lone lion secretively.

Still, the lion is a watchman, a dignified creature, always protective and gentle with others unless provoked; then, you can expect a lion to pounce.

Fundamentally the lion’s central goal is to stand guard, watching and warning, and only fight off the predators when necessary. The watchman loves life and enjoys the wild, peaceful, and protective over the territory God created and assigned.

The watchman minds their business and, set apart from the rest, grows in stature but appears to stand alone; yet protected with courage and bravery, this peaceful powerhouse is calm unless otherwise provoked, doing what lions do honorably.

The lion is only out to protect the terrain of its pride. It’s brothers and sisters who the lion loves—solitary lions are family units, part of a pride unseen but not far off; they watch and wait.

They stay tucked away until the right time to step forward and reveal themselves to help the lion in its time of need. Later they strike the enemies down together.

While the lion survives, in the wild, the small but noisy hyenas continuously try to attack it, playfully taunting the lion in their circle and then running and hiding.

At the same time, the little yet loud hyenas keep sneaking up in an attempt to kill it. These hyenas taunt the lion by scurrying up behind it and cackling mercilessly; then, they run and hide.

Why?

They know that the lion can, and will rip these tiny animals to shreds if need be, so they burn and complain in secret to cause a stir.

Nonetheless, the lion stands its ground with boldness and authority and only beats back the attacks to protect itself and the far-off pride in the distance.

Thecwarchman never intends to hurt those out to attack it. However, the lion will do what needs to be done if they refuse to fall back.

It is easy for the Lion, the watchman, to intimidate these little guys. All they have to do is open their mouth, and the hyenas run and hide, taking shelter in unseen places.

Yet later, reappearing to taunt in secret making more noise on the field; little do these pack predators admit, the watchman has a keen sense of smell that is underestimated and the reason they are aware of what lurks in the darkness.

The lion is not foolish. The King of the jungle sees what is unseen, yet the lion will only go after what it is hungry for, which is righteousness in the kingdom.

Nevertheless, the lion is well-fed and continually feeds, so it’s nourished and doesn’t end up like hyenas hunting in packs without a genuine reason.

The watchman lays back and enjoys the beauty of the wildlife and although known for the power and might of its Creator. The gentle giant is aware of its royal presence in the jungle.

I believe the Lord’s message is unmistakable. Still, if it is not—allow me to broaden the Spiritual horizon to make the connection.

Proverbs 28:1
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.”

Proverbs 30:30
The lion, which is mightiest among beasts and does not turn back before any.

Recall that Ezekiel was first commissioned and established as a watchman, and Ezekiel 3:17 says, “so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.”

Then in Ezekiel 3: 20-22, “Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.”

21 But if you do warn the righteous person not to sin and they do not sin, they will surely live because they took warning, and you will have saved yourself.”

22 The hand of the Lord was on me there, and he said to me, “Get up and go out to the plain, and there I will speak to you.” 23 So I got up and went out to the plain. And the glory of the Lord was standing there, like the glory I had seen by the Kebar River, and I fell facedown.

If you recall scripture, Ezekiel is commissioned to be a watchman over a city already destroyed and not aware.

Let He that hath ears to hear, let him hear what the Lord is saying to the Church—we stand guard.

May the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, be with you and your families and communities.

Blessings,🌿
