I heard this being sung over and over in my spirit today, and the Words, “Hail, Hail, Lion of Judah, let The Lion ROAR!”
And I saw a believer in the Spirit rhythmically trampling upon the head of a serpent as these Words were being sung.
Over and over he stepped upon the enemy’s head and pierced the scorpion with his Sword of The Spirit.
I know many of you feel crushed and defeated by circumstances or pierced through by heartache. But know this, Child of God, Jesus was CRUSHED at the whipping post and PIERCED through the heart on the Cross, so that you NOW have HIS authority to TREAD UPON and CRUSH serpents and PIERCE the scorpions and Holy Spirit Power over ALL the power of the enemy and NOTHING shall hurt you!
YES! The demons are subject to you in Jesus’ Name! Wow!
This is God’s Promise in Luke 10:19! The God of Peace shall soon CRUSH Satan under your feet! The Lion of Judah has prevailed!
“Beloved, weep not. The Lion of Judah has prevailed.
Your Savior was pierced for your transgressions, He was crushed for your iniquities; the punishment that brought you peace was upon Him, and by His stripes you are healed.
Behold, I give you My Authority to crush the serpent and pierce through the scorpion!
Nothing shall by any means harm you. Will you believe it? NO weapon formed against you shall prosper.
I have given you the Mind of Christ and the Wisdom and Understanding of your Father God. You are as wise as the serpent but gentle as the Dove.
Here is truth. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but I deliver you from them all.
Take your authority that I have given you, My Warrior! Walk with the Lion. Dance upon the enemy’s head in My Name.
You walk in the Spirit and not the flesh. Strike the ground with The Word of your God.
By My Breath the skies were cleared; My Hand has pierced the fleeing serpent! Yes! Take the Thunder of My Power and speak My Word, Warrior of God! This is how you fight your battles!
You overcome by the Blood of The Lamb and the Word of your Testimony. The Lamb is a Lion! I will set you on High, because you have known My Name.
You shall call upon Me, and I will answer you: I will be with you in trouble; I will deliver you, and honor you. With long life will I satisfy you, and show you My Salvation.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper! Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O grave, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is The Law.
But I have given you the Victory through your LORD Jesus Christ. By Grace you are saved! I AM roaring your victory!
Therefore, stand firm, My Warrior! Be strong and courageous, My kings and queens! Let nothing move you.
If you encounter evil spirits that seek to injure you, I will keep you from danger. If you go among bitter and malignant enemies that would seek your life, I will preserve you.
The sting of the scorpion shall not touch you nor the poison of the serpent harm you! I will bring justice to the poor of the people — I will save the children of the needy, and I will CRUSH the oppressor!
Rejoice, Beloved! Shout unto your God with the Voice of Triumph! IT IS FINISHED!”
TREAD : Strong’s Hebrew to tread, i.e., to trample, crush with the feet: to advance by setting foot upon, tread upon: To tramp or tread heavily so as to bruise, crush, or injure something: to crush under the feet; to encounter successfully the greatest perils from the machinations and persecutions with which Satan would try to thwart the children of God, to tread underfoot, trample on, i.e. treat with insult and contempt.
CRUSH : Strong’s Greek 4937 : to shatter, break in pieces, tread down, to put Satan under foot and (as a conqueror) trample on him, Romans 16:20; also the word “crushed” is used in Isaiah 53:5 But He was PIERCED for our transgressions, He was CRUSHED (Strong’s Hebrew 1792) for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
SERPENTS : Strong’s Greek 3789; a snake; evil spirits, demons, Satan. With the ancients the serpent was an emblem of cunning and wisdom; The serpent who deceived Eve and regarded later by the Hebrews as the devil.
SCORPIONS : Strong’s 4651: name of an arachnid, somewhat resembling a lobster, which in warm regions lurks especially in stone walls; it has a poisonous STING in its tail ; symbolic of evil spirits: from the base of skopos and meaning “to PIERCE”; a “scorpion” (from its sting)
Barnes’ Notes on the Bible:
TO TREAD ON SERPENTS : Preservation from danger. “If you tread on a poisonous reptile that would otherwise injure you, I will keep you from danger. If you go among bitter and malignant enemies that would seek your life, I will preserve you.” See Mark 16:18.
SCORPIONS : The scorpion is an arachnid with pincers similar to those of a lobster and a poisonous sting at the end of its jointed tail, Its sting is extremely poisonous, and it is sometimes fatal to life. It is in Scripture the emblem of malicious and crafty men. Luke 11:12; Ezekiel 2:6.
THE ENEMY : Satan. The meaning of this verse is, that Jesus would preserve them from the power of Satan and all his emissaries — from all wicked and crafty men; and this shows that He had Divine Power. He that can control Satan and his hosts that can be present to guard from all their machinations, see all their plans, and destroy all their designs, He is clothed with Almighty Power.
“Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And Jesus said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to TREAD upon SERPENTS and SCORPIONS, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that THE SPIRITS ARE SUBJECT TO YOU, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:17-20.
“You shall TREAD UPON the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shall you TRAMPLE under feet. Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

“So the great dragon was cast out, that SERPENT OF OLD, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” Revelation 12:9-11
“The God of peace will soon CRUSH Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.” Romans 16:20

But after these things he must be released for a little while.” Revelation 20:2-3
