“The Lions Are Roaring!”

 

I’d like to share a portion of what the Lord spoke to me throughout the night of April 16, 2020, but first need to explain what preceded this “admonition” and word of encouragement to His people.

When worldwide lockdowns surrounding the virus began, I started going online several times a day to get updates on what was happening.  The plan to subdue the masses and take control of every aspect of our lives seemed to be playing out around the world.  Of special interest to me was what appeared to be a general move against the Church. 

The Church not only was considered “non-essential” by many state/city leaders, but seemed to be receiving targeted persecution.  Also, talk of an eventual “vaccine” to be given to every human on the planet seemed to be the exciting news of the day.  “Their” plan is for it to be required to function in society: obtain employment, go to school, travel, buy and sell in the market place.  The list went on and on…  

I won’t go further because I only wanted to set the stage to better understand what happened the evening of the 16th.  Here I was, focused on all these events going on “out there,” scurrying about trying to prepare, when I noticed an anxiousness growing in my spirit.

God soon revealed most of what I was doing to be fear-based.  I’d gone about doing what I thought should be done.  To be honest, I was having a difficult time being still before the Lord in order to hear Him.  But once He got me settled down, I repented and spent the rest of the day praying and feeding my spirit with His word. 

Retiring approximately 9:00 pm that night, I immediately went into a deep sleep.  All through the night I heard the Lord speaking.  The following is part of what was spoken:

“My people are afraid to let go of this world. They are kept in bondage through fear of death.”

“The lions are roaring!  Who among you will shut the mouth of these lions? 

“Remember, you are not of this world, as I have chosen you out of the world. 

“You are My ambassadors and your citizenship in heaven!”

“The news of the coming Kingdom of God is the REAL news, and you are My witnesses!”

“You are the light of the world and will not remain hidden.  For you must be put upon the lampstand to provide light for all the house.”

“I alone will be glorified, and every knee will bow to Me!”

“As the world hates Me, so will it hate you.  Remember what I told you, “What was before will be again.”

“Gird Yourself!”

Summary:

First let me say, I’m ashamed of my initial response to the swirling of this storm. The Lord’s already shown fear and confusion to be the favorite tool of the devil.  It’s used to overwhelm and paralyze the saints, allowing them to be covered with a cloud of darkness.  He uses fear of death, fear of our physical safety/needs not being met, to enslave the masses. 

Once we turn our focus towards the broadcasting/plans/threats of the enemy, we begin taking anxious thought, and enter dangerous territory.  Make no mistake about this:  We – the Saints of God – are the main target!  The devil knows without a doubt he needs to keep the Church separated and silent.  He’s terrified of God in us, terrified of the thought his fear mongering won’t be effective enough to keep us cowered down in a corner in fear and confusion.  The devil has every reason to be terrified!

God says, “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.”  He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision (ridicule or mockery).”  Psalms 2:1-4

We must remember, the roaring of the lions, or growling of the wolves, whatever beast the enemy uses to encircle the camp of the saints, are nothing to God.  He sits in the heavens and LAUGHS!  He confounds the counsel of the wise and turns their knowledge into nonsense!

God says the lions are roaring, and is asking who among His people will shut the mouth of these lions.  The Word says the righteous are as bold as a lion (Pro. 28:1).  We’re told to consider the saints of old who through faith subdued kingdoms, stopped the mouths of lions, and out of weakness were made strong (Heb. 11:33-34).

Jesus said we are not of this world, that our citizenship is in heaven.  We are ambassadors of Jesus, THE KING of kings and Lord of lords – and of the coming Kingdom of God!  He is the King to be glorified!  It is before this King EVERY KNEE WILL BOW!

The news of HIS coming kingdom is the REAL news, and we are His witnesses!  Jesus said we are the light of the world, and cannot remain hidden.  We must be put on the lamp stand to provide light for all the house!  This directly ties in to the last thing God spoke to me that night:

“As the world hates Me, so will it hate you.  Remember what I told you, “What was before will be again.”

“Gird Yourself!”

As mentioned in previous posts (related links below), a major division is soon coming within the church.  Those who continue to kowtow to the god of this world will stand against those who arise to do the works of Jesus. As it was in the beginning, so will it be again (read book of Acts).   

God’s giving a heads up, telling us, “Gird Yourself!”  The day is rapidly approaching, and even now upon us, when those who speak and do as the Holy Spirit leads will come into major conflict with the rules of man.  Jesus described the end times before His return as a time when His followers will be hated of ALL NATIONS for His name’s sake (Matt. 24:10).  This will be a global hatred, not just here and there. 

Saints, may we not allow the roaring of the toothless lions to distract us.  May we keep our eyes fastened upon God, giving Him praise and thanksgiving for this precious time.  As previously shared, He told me from the beginning this was a “Practice Run – Dress Rehearsal.” We’ve been told to use this time wisely, as what’s happening now is only a “gentle” shaking, a precursor of what’s to come. 

We will fear not!  Our God is the ever Faithful One, who will keep us perfectly aligned and prepared for what’s ahead.

Please pray over this message for confirmation and further revelation of how it may apply to you.

The online dictionary defines “ambassador” as –an accredited diplomat sent by a country as its official representative to a foreign country.– God considers us His official representatives? Accredited diplomats? Do I really represent God accurately? Have I studied to show myself an approved diplomat? Do I shine the Truth brightly? Oh dear. This is very scary. Sadly, I can not say, ‘yes, of course I always do.’ I say God is worthy of all praise and honor and worship. But if I am not properly representing Him to others I am nothing but a hypocrite. Scripture tells us Jesus had… Read more »

good day in the Lord. The watchword us “Awakening”. It’s not revival time but time like Revelations making the church & its people aware of cleansing and hearing His voice. Some of the shepherds and teachers have been short changing The Word and minimizing or watering down or misapplying scripture to our detriment. Many have been lulled to sleep, some are oblivious, others unaware or think church is enough. Too too many are unaware of Holy Spirit prayer power. God is calling we must be listening. The church and our nation can be set free in Christ. God is using… Read more »

There is an old hymn that says:

Well, I went to the enemy’s camp and
I took back what he stole from me
I went to the enemy’s camp and
I took back what he stole from me
You know
He’s under my feet
Satan is under my feet

Amen! Think of it this way, and I will leave the multitudes of scriptures that go along with this out, but what do we have to lose by stepping out, by bragging and boasting about JESUS? It’s the Truth and it’s what makes us who we are! We belong to HIM and HE is authority, HE is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords so if we belong to HIM, and none of HIS enemies, no circumstance, no situation can overcome HIM because everything is beneath HIM! So wouldn’t that mean that all of the things are beneath us… Read more »

Nice to share with the brethren. Did you fully notice the new covenant command of Jesus at the Lord’s supper? It was pointed out to me. The old testament covenant was fulfilled by Christ and we are to walk in and obey the new covenant. That’s sort of what you’re saying. Luke 22:20 John 13:34,35 this can’t be done except Jesus is more deeply loved by us & out of His love being more richly realized. It is our passing out His love through us. John 15:7-11. God’s goodness flourishes in Jesus love. God gave Jesus out ofove. Jesus gave… Read more »

What a right on word Diana. Recently I was telling a brother in Christ that Smith Wigglesworth would not even allow a newspaper in his house… Oh, that we all would be like him doing the works he did, and even greater ones. Thank you so much for this needful reminder to gird ourselves up with the REAL truth.

On my goodness. I too have been following all the news and posts about what is going on and have been fearful and frustrated and then feeling a nudge in my Spirit that I wasn’t sure what it was. Two nights ago I heard, “when the storms come, how will you handle it? This is a test run”. Praise be to the Lord my rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.

EXACTLY, I said that this morning to someone: it’s they fear death and this is not home awhile back the Lord told me about my stuff “it’s just stuff”. “My people are afraid to let go of this world. They are kept in bondage through fear of death.” EXACTLY! I’m trying to fast the news, all of it as it is a distraction and fear and LIES. My Clarion Call is Fast, Pray, Repent, WORSHIP, Read/Speak the WORD. We are not to love our lives OR our stuff. I’m going to find the Verse and come back later. GREAT WORD… Read more »
