I saw in the Spirit the Lion of Judah shaking His Mane.
“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”
And there was WATER coming from His Mane as He shook it. Living Waters falling! The Latter Rain falling from His Mane!
Fear not, Child of God! It may be WINTER in this dark world but SPRINGTIME IS COMING!
“Beloved. Fear not. The Lamb is a Lion. There is no power greater in heaven or earth than the power of your King. Do not be intimidated by the threats of the evil one.
Fear nothing but your God. Not as in “afraid” but as in “reverence.” The fear of The LORD is the beginning of wisdom, Dear One.
Acknowledge Me in all your ways and I shall direct your paths. I AM always FOR you and never against you, My Child. Come to your Abba Father BOLDLY.
Learn of Me for I AM GENTLE and humble of heart. I AM gentle yet I hold all power over your enemies. Yes, Beloved, this is truth. I AM always moving on your behalf.
Know that My Power ALWAYS works for your good. You shall lack NO GOOD THING, Little One. Be confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you is faithful to complete it.
Your King is not a baby in a manger or a mere man on a cross, but I AM the Lion of Judah moving in Grace. I will contend with those who contend with you. Press on to know Me, My Child.
My going forth is as certain as the Dawn, I come to you like the Rain, like the Spring Rain watering the earth. See the Bright Clouds on the horizon!
Even the darkness is Light to Me, Beloved. The Glory Rain is falling! I AM waking you, My Young Lion, and refreshing you by My Spirit.
And you shall delight in the fear of The LORD and you shall KNOW ME AS I AM.”
LION’S MANE : 1) Intimidating appearance to enemies. 2) A symbol of health. Its very existence indicates SERIOUS POWER. (©Thomson Safaris)
FEAR OF The LORD : Having a deep respect, reverence and awe for God’s power and authority. Rather than causing someone to be afraid of God, a proper “fear of The LORD” leads one to love Him. (Life, hope, and truth). “He is not a tame Lion, but he is good.” C.S. Lewis
“Ask ye of The LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so The LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field,“(abundance, prosperity) Zechariah 10:1.
“Fear The LORD, you His saints, for those who fear Him lack nothing. Young lions go lacking and hungry, but those who seek The LORD lack no good thing. Come, children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of The LORD,” Psalm 34:9-11.
“So let us know, let us press on to know The LORD. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; and He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth,” Isaiah 11:2-4.
“Indeed, this is what The LORD says: “Even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the plunder of the tyrant will be retrieved; I will contend with those who contend with you, and I will save your children,” Isaiah 49:25.
“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light,” Matthew 11:28-30.
“The Spirit of The LORD will rest on Him — the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and strength, the Spirit of knowledge and FEAR OF The LORD. And He will delight in the fear of The LORD. He will not judge by what His eyes see, and He will not decide by what His ears hear, but with righteousness He will judge the poor, and with equity He will decide for the lowly of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth and slay the wicked with the breath of His lips,” Isaiah 11:2-4.
