Revelation 5:5 NKJV ”But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root... THE LION

Revelation 5:5 NKJV

”But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”


-Several Biblical references have outlined the lion that bring out a diversity of attributes and significance. The tribe of Judah forms part of the twelve sons of Jacob and thus the tribes of Israel. “The genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham. Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers” (Matthew 1:1-2). The tribe of Judah here references the human or natural lineage of Christ. It also points to the overcoming, conquering, powerful, victorious and redeeming King, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 


Oh Lord and King, our Great Lion of Judah, strong and mighty. We declare that You are our only God and none can compare to You. Oh Lord we exalt You and enthrone You for there is none like You.How wonderful is Your name in all the earth. How powerful is Your name Oh Lion of Judah. At Your name Jesus, every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus You are Lord to the glory of God the Father. We humbly come before Your throne repenting of all the sins and iniquity we have committed. We seek Your forgiveness and mercies that are new every morning. May You cleanse us and wash us with Your precious blood and sanctify us whole body, soul and spirit. We ask You Lion of Judah to come and fight for us in all our situations for You are the strong and mighty One. May You go before us and grant us victory in every area of our lives. May You fight for all those who are sick and oppressed in our society and grant them rest. Thank You for redeeming us by Your blood dear Jesus out of every tribe, tongue, people and nation. We exult Your holy name and honor You now and forever. Amen

Numbers 24:9 NKJV

He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?’ “Blessed is he who blesses you, And cursed is he who curses you.”


When the Israelites came out of Egypt, they went on occupying the territories of Canaan. They destroyed king Sihon and all the Amorites who dwelt at Heshbon. When they approached the plain of Moab, king Balak and all the Moabites were terrified at their presence. The Israelites are likened to a fierce and great lion that conquers all  his enemies. Numbers 23:24 reveals that, the lion shall not lie down until it devours its prey, and drinks the blood of the slain. King Balak sent for Balaam to come and curse the Israelites for they were too mighty for him. The curse would enable him to destroy them and drive them out of the land. Each time Balaam came made a pronouncement upon the Israelites, he blessed them declaring that those who the Lord has blessed cannot be cursed. 


Abba Father we love You and thank You for Who You are and what You have done and continue to do in our lives. We thank You for loving us and giving us Your Son Jesus Christ to save us and redeem us with His precious blood. Lord You say in Your word that a curse without a cannot stand. Lord Jesus if there is any cause for a curse may You forgive us, our families, churches, ministries and nation. May You forgive us the sins and those of our youth and cleanse us with Your precious blood. Your Jesus Your word says that mercy comes before judgement, may You have mercy on us and on the whole world. Dear Lord Jesus we thank You for blessing us. Those who are blessed cannot be cursed. May You open every closed door for us and break every delay in our lives. We honor You and exult Your holy name now and forever. Amen

Isaiah 11:6-7 NKJV

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze; Their young ones shall lie down together; And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.“


The prophecy of Isaiah regarding the coming of Jesus Christ the Root of Jesse. The Prince of peace who unites every living being, and remains the Head over all. The imagery is taken from the condition of animals of all descriptions living in a state of harmony. The unity of the lion and the calf symbolizes the restoration of the state in Eden, and there reconciliation of man through love in the person of the Son of man. Jesus Himself is the Lion and Lamb who came to redeem us from eternal condemnation. Christ requires that we love Him and one another as ourselves, and remain united for love never fails. 


Lord You are Good and Your love endures forever. We love You Lord Jesus and exult Your name, may Your peace that surpasses all human understanding dwell in our hearts and minds in You Prince of peace. We raise Your banner high let the heavens rejoice, let the earth declare Your holiness. Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Oh Lord, may You look upon us with Your mercies for we are always in need of Your guidance and help. As a flower that withers and is blown away by the wind, we are in constant need Your mercy. May You unite us with Your with our families for Your love endures forever. May You unite all the broken families for Your love endures forever. May You unite all the married couples with cords of love that cannot be broken, for Your love endures forever. May You unite those who are single with their godly ordained spouses for Your love endures forever. We love You Lord Jesus and exult Your holy name, thank You for loving us first, now and forever. Amen

1 Peter 5:8-11 NIV

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.“


The story of Job exposes us to some spiritual realities. The Lord questions the devil asking him where he was from, and he answered, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it” (Job 1:7). Satan therefore masquerade like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. There is need therefore to be spiritually alert and sober minded. Constant fellowship with the Holy Ghost, and other brethren through reading the word of God, prayer and thanksgiving exposes us to the right spiritual environment strengthening us in faith. 


Dear Lord Jesus how Great and Wonderful are You in all the earth. You are Marvelous, You are Excellent. May You enable us by Your grace to resist the devil and he will flee from us. May You protect us and preserve us with Your precious blood and hedge of fire from the schemes and darts of the devil. May You fight for us every battle for the battle belongs to You. Lord You are Holy may You always empower us to be holy. May You deliver all those who are addicted to alcohol, drugs, sexual immorality, gambling and other evil influences. May You restore everyone living in the street and enable them to find their godly ordained purposes. May You deliver our children, brothers and sisters from the snare of the enemy and grant all our households the gift of salvation. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forever more. Amen

Psalms 91:13 NKJV

You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.“


-God has given us dominion from the beginning over the fish of the sea, birds of the heavens, livestock, over all the earth and every creeping thing on the earth (Genesis 1:26). God has also given us authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will hurt us (Luke 10:19). He has given us power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and disease (Matthew 10:1). We should therefore not live in fear for we have dominion over every threat that looks like the lion since we have the power of the Holy Spirit in us Who is greater than the enemy who is in the world (1 John 4:4). 


The lion is a mighty creature that retreats before nothing (Proverbs 30:30). One of the attributes of God is His omnipotence symbolising that He is all powerful. At the same time we read in Scripture that God is merciful and compassionate. God described as both the Lion and the Lamb, showing His power and merciful nature. Therefore, He is the victorious and conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He has power over the devil who prowl around like a roaring lion, and all creation is subject to Him. We are reminded then to resist the devil and stand in faith for we are called to eternal glory (1 Peter 5:8-11). We have been joined to Christ as co-heirs with Him and have the blessing of eternal life once we believe in Him. In this blessing those who bless us are blessed and those who curse us are cursed (Numbers 24:9). We are therefore more than conquerors in Him who gives us peace for He is the Prince of peace. 


Dear Lord Jesus You are Merciful and Compassionate, full of kindness and love, may You have mercy on us and grant us Your peace that surpasses no human understanding. Though sometimes we go through turbulent moments we believe in Your power as the Lion of Judah and Your mercy and grace as the Lamb of God. Thank You for Your redemptive work on the cross to grant us the gift of salvation and eternal life. All our hope and trust is in You dear Lord and God. We are more than conquerors in You dear Jesus, may You grant us victory and break every delay in our lives, families, churches, communities and nation. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You shine Your face towards us and be gracious unto us. May You show Your countenance unto us and give us peace. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forevermore. Amen
