The Lion's Roar

There is an old proverb that says, ‘March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.’  This alludes to the fact that March in the northern hemisphere straddles winter and spring.  Typically, the weather at the beginning of the month can be harsh and unpleasant while the milder and more pleasing weather arrives at the end of the month.

But something is stirring in the hearts of God’s people that this is the time to look up and see the revelation of the coming of the Lion of Judah.  The Church is intimately aware of the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world, but the Lion of Judah is an attribute of Jesus that many shy away from.  The Lion is not a soft, cute cuddly lamb that frolics in the pasture.  He is a warrior, bold in the face of the adversary, a terrifying creature, the king of beasts.  The roar of a lion can be heard from 8 kilometers away.

Joel 3: 16 says that “The LORD will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem; the earth and the sky will tremble.  But the LORD will be a refuge for His people, a stronghold for the people of Israel “.  Many are struggling and held in captivity by fear, depression, despair, and loneliness.  And they desperately need to hear the ‘roar’ of the Lion of Judah who goes out before them to do battle.  I believe that God is awakening His roar in the Church who are called to speak into the darkness, into the crisis and chaos. The roar of the Lion of Judah is both the BREATH of God and the SOUND of God.  His breath is the empowerment and anointing of the Spirit and the sound is the weapon that both heals and restores and breaks through and destroys principalities and powers.

God is raising up a people who will simply be His mouthpiece to a dying world – a world that needs to hear His voice.  “The lion has roared – who will not fear?  The Sovereign Lord has spoken – who can but prophesy?’   Amos 3:8

May this March bring forth the roar of the Lion.
