The Two Lions

(1 Peter 5:8 NCV) “Control yourselves and be careful! The devil, your enemy, goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to eat.”

(Revelation 5:5 NCV) “But one of the elders said to me, “Do not cry! The Lion from the tribe of Judah, David’s descendant, has won the victory….””

Two lions with two drastically different goals in mind. One of protection, One of destruction. One of victory and one of defeat. Both are being followed in our world today, yet only one will lead to life.  In fact, one of the lions knows that he has lost.  Satan knows of his own demise and is trying to influence all that he can to go his way.

The world looks like a place that is headed to hell on a joy bus.  What I mean by that is that there are so many people that seemingly don’t care about godly things.  Romans puts it this way, (Romans 1:32 NCV)  “They know God’s law says that those who live like this should die. But they themselves not only continue to do these evil things, they applaud others who do them.” Knowing that death is in the end, they still applaud evil.  How sad!

Jesus is the answer.  The Lion of the tribe off Judah HAS WON!  Follow Him and receive the victory.  We may lose a few battles along the way, butt the war is a done deal because of Jesus!  Amen to that!!

    Our condition would be sad, indeed, without that assurance and encouragement! Thanks for the reminder.

    For the most part, I think those who applaud evil really don’t believe in the concept of evil as having any eternal consequences. I don’t have a great confidence in the future that will be “life” for my children and grandchildren.

    You did a good job at Miss Cabler’s funeral. I know the family found comfort in your words. I was in a rush and did not get to say much.
