The Real Lion has Conquered and Prevailed


I had a Dream

I had a dream last night of a young girl in her teens who walked up to me and looked at me with a very rebellious, almost evil look on her face, and I began to grab her by the arms to keep her from hurting me, because she had gotten nearly in my face.

When I grabbed her, I began to wrestle with her, but she got the best of me and we both went tumbling.  I went backwards and she was on top of me.  As I fought for my life, suddenly her face turned into the devil himself, and began to almost roar at me like a lion with this hot smoky breath.

I woke up trembling with my heart racing.  It seemed to be the scariest dream I had ever had, but the weird thing was, I got over it really quickly.

The Entry Way came at a Young Age

Now I don’t usually have nightmares, because I was seriously delivered of them many years ago.  But I believe the Lord showed me something about me and many of you through this dream this morning.

I believe that He showed me that the young girl was me, and many others who allowed the enemy and entrance into their lives at about the age of going from a teenager to an adult.

Some sort of rebellion set in and caused it to change your whole life.  I believe that God delivered you from this when you gave your life later on but that the symptoms of that thing have been trying to still affect your life for some reason or another and you have been afraid of what it might do to your family.

The Last Hoorah!

I felt the Lord wanting you to know that this thing is now only “as a roaring lion” even though it is making a great big scary noise right now!  You have been wrestling with it too long and it wants to make you believe through the Spirit of Fear, that you can never be rid of it, but God says that This is it’s last hoorah!  There is nothing there but STINKY BREATH AND SMOKE!”

Never to Wrestle again

He said, “When you get up from this last wrestling match that you will not have to wrestle that thing, ever again because you will have realized that fear is all it really had!  Don’t let your heart fear what the enemy can do anymore because his teeth have been pulled at Calvary!”

The Real Lion has already Conquered

“He can no longer hurt you or your family!  He only has one weapon and that is to scare you! Now get up and dust yourself off because this battle will not effect you like in times past!  It will only be a short memory that is coming to nothing!  He comes as a roaring lion but I have come as the real lion and I have prevailed!  You have resisted the devil so he must flee!  Be strong in the lord and in the power of his might! You are more than conqueror’s in my kingdom!  It is time to shout the victory because it is finished!

“When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities [those supernatural forces of evil operating against us], He made a public example of them [exhibiting them as captives in His triumphal procession], having triumphed over them through the cross,”   Colossians 2:15 (AMP).
