The Lion

lionMilwaukee has gone crazy over a very large feline — a cougar, a panther, or maybe a real lion — first spotted July 20 roaming through the back yard of Bill and Annie Nolen’s neighbor. “I was afraid to move,” Annie Nolen said. “I thought, what am I looking at.” Their daughter’s grainy video went viral.  CNN 

Any time a mountain lion enters an urban area it makes headlines. Some people are afraid (understandably) to venture out at night. But did you know that there is a lion stalking every city, every town, every state? As a matter-of-fact, there isn’t a place on earth that you will not find him. “Be alert, be on watch! Your enemy, the Devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

Did you know that in a pride of lions; it is the lioness (female) that does must of the killing? The male lion’s job is to roar fiercely causing their prey to be confused and fearful. And in their fear, the herd panics and stampedes into the lioness’ ambush. Satan’s role is similar: He causes Confusion 1 Cor. 14:33; Deception: Even Satan tries to make himself look like an angel of light.”  2 Cor.11:14  See also Rev. 12:9. He  brings Division: Satan will use false doctrine to divide the Church. In the animal world, the lion pride will single out one of the herd to attack but they must get him away from the rest of the herd before they attack. There is safety in numbers. Hebrews 10:24-25

But there is another Lion mention in Scripture; the Lion of Judah (Jesus Christ). Hosea 5:14 Rev.5:5 His strength will be yours in time of trouble. He will guard and keep you!
