Jesus Christ is the King of kings, Lord of lords and the lion of the tribe of Judah. Satan always masquerades and imitates his actions.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” (1 Peter 5:7-8) “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” (2 Corinthians 11:14)
The lion of Jesus represents royalty, strength, authority, leadership. Yet the one of Satan represents a predator. He wants to take on whatever quality that our Lord and Saviour has.
Here now are the four ways of attack by a lion.
1. A lion is a opportunist. He will hunt for the weak, sick or old animal. More often though it will hunt for the nearest prey.
2. It seeks the one that is standing alone and preferably at night. There is power in unity but isolation gives opportunity to the enemy. Lions use the cover of darkness to kill.
3. The lion sends the females out to probe for weaknesses in it’s prey, and then attacks with surprise, swiftness and suddenness. At first the male moves slow, but attacks rapidly so as not to give the prey a chance to escape.
4. Lions devour and eat all of the carcase, leaving nothing behind. Total victory is it’s goal.
Lastly when the lion roars, he creates fear and intimidation in his prey. He can literally cause it to freeze in place because of fear. Then they will pounce on their prey and drag it away to eat. Lions eat on their while on their stomachs. The Ghost and the Darkness is a movie that was reality based one dealing with two man eating lions in Africa. Those lions killed and ate somewhere between 35-135 people in 1907. These are currently on display at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
The only way that we can overcome Satan is through the name of Jesus in all things, and obedience to every word of God. The Son of God came to take away all sin, set us free and took all of our infirmities upon Himself on the cross at Calvary. Nothing is impossible for God. There is peace, joy and happiness that can found in Him. Why not trust in Him today?
