The Lion of the Tribe of Judah
“If God has compared His Son to a Lion there are undoubtedly some necessary application that can be made. Besides being a powerful, fearless, regal king, and having a roar that literally sounds like thunder, the lion is known for several things…” [READ MORE HERE]
Listen to their [Roar]
[click here to hear LION ROAR] the closest natural sound to thunder a living being can make on earth. Those in the bible that have heard God’s voice say it sounds like THUNDER.
And God knowing beginning to end created the lion for the sole purpose of comparing His Son in a way WE MORTALS WOULD UNDERSTAND. If this was not so why does one of the faces of the cherubim look like the face of a lion, when the cherubim were created before the lion? You can also apply this to the dove, which the bible likens the Holy Spirit as descending upon Jesus Christ as.
Lions in the bible [Lions]
Ancient constellation of the Lion, the heroic Lion of God [here]
The Mazzorath (the 12 constellations):
1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. 3 There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. 4 Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens he has pitched a tent for the sun, 5 which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. [Psalms 19:1-5]
Those constellations are called “THE MAZZAROTH.” The map of the stars (constellations) which together declare the glory of God and detail the story of His plan for salvation, from the Virgin to the Lion, was given to Enoch, the 7th from Adam and handed down to his sons, then to Job, preserved in Holy Scripture, and taught to the prophet Daniel, and in ancient Babylon. Through the centuries it was bastardized into worship of the constellations as “gods,” from the ancient Egyptians, to the ancient Greeks and Romans. The general idea was transformed into a magnificent painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Eventually, the meaning of the constellations metamorphosed down to modern day culture in its most perverted form, as “astrology,” the 12 signs of the zodiac, no longer having anything to do with God and His Plan for Salvation.
AN AWESOME DEPICTION OF THE MAZZAROTH can be seen in a stellarium video by mafung here:

JESUS CHRIST, THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH, who is also the SLAIN LAMB OF GOD:
One thing for sure, Jesus may have come to earth as a humble, suffering servant the first time, but He will return as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!
“1 Then I saw a scroll in the right hand of the one who was sitting on the throne. There was writing on the inside and the outside of the scroll, and it was sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel, who shouted with a loud voice: “Who is worthy to break the seals on this scroll and open it?” 3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll and read it.
“Then I began to weep bitterly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll and read it. 5 But one of the twenty-four elders said to me, “Stop weeping! Look, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the heir to David’s throne, has won the victory. He is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.” REV 5:1-5

The Lion of the Tribe of Judah
The lion has long been recognized as “The King of the Beast.” A male lion can weigh any where from 350 to 600 pounds.
Most males are about nine feet long from the nose to the end of the tail. They are about 3 1/2 feet tall at the shoulder. Male lions are the only cats with manes. This collar of long thick hair covers their head, except the face, and the neck down to the shoulders and chest. As well as providing a majestic appearance, it also protects him during a fight.
If God has compared His Son to a Lion there are undoubtedly some necessary application that can be made. The lion is known for several things:
I. HIS STRENGTH (Prov. 30:30)
Lions are built for strength. They have been observed dragging 600 pound animals that they have killed considerable distances. The strength of a lion has long been the standard by which to judge real strength. “Saul and Jonathan were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided: they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.” (2 Sam. 1:23)
Often people make the mistake of supposing Jesus’ compassion and love is a sign of weakness. Please consider:
A. Jesus driving the money changers from the temple – (Matt. 21:12,13)
B. The officers sent to arrest Jesus came back empty handed because of His words – (Jn. 7:32, 45-47)
C. The angry mob parted as Jesus passed through – (Lk. 4:28-30)
D. The ability to carry a cross after being scourged – (Matt. 27:26)
E. The Second Coming of Christ – (Rev. 19:11-21)
II. HIS ROAR
[click here to hear LION ROAR] the closest natural sound to thunder a living being can make on earth. Those in the bible that have heard God’s voice say it sounds like THUNDER
“The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?” (Amos 3:8)
The roar of a lion has been compared to the voice of God.
“They shall walk after the Lord: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.” (Hos. 11:10) (See also Rev. 10:3)
According to National Geographic, April 1969, the roar of a lion has more than one function:
A. A soft moaning sound – a roar of low intensity – a lioness call’s her cubs from the hiding place, generally for food.
“The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.” (Ps. 104:21)
B. When a member of the pride (family) is looking for others, it will roar loudly, then listen attentively for an answer. (Job 38:1-3,18; 40:1-7)
NOTE: Lions usually live and travel in family groups called “prides”. There may be as few as 4-6 or as many as 30. The family setup seems to be some what symbolical of the local church.
According to the same article in National Geographic: “Although some members of the pride, especially the males, may roam widely, the lions usually confine themselves to a definite territory.”
Another interesting note is, “Pride members are affectionate among themselves. They rub cheeks when they meet. They rest and hunt together, but strangers or members of a neighboring pride are not usually accepted.” (Jer. 31:3; Eze. 16:6-14) Lions never kill unnecessarily but only when there is a need. A lion seldom eats everything, but leaves some for the scavengers. God’s blessings overflow to the bystanders. (Matt. 15:21-28, Gen. 30:27)
C. The roar strikes fear because of its deafening, ferocious sound. Of course in the case of the “Lion of the tribe of Judah”, there is good cause for fear.
III. AN INSTRUMENT OF JUDGMENT
There have been a variety of occasions where lions have been used by God as an instrument of judgment.
A. Judgment upon the Assyrians – (2 Kings 17:24-26)
B. The young prophet who disobeyed God – (1 Kings 13:24-26)
C. The man who ignored the prophet – (1 Kings 20:35-36)
Note: According to Encyclopedia Americana, “Lions after the kill usually rip the carcass open and commence eating the entrails, heart and liver.”
Jesus Christ exposes with one motion our inner most being. “Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.” (Ps. 7:2)
D. Lions are known for their powerful teeth. They do not have teeth to chew, but only to tear, swallowing large chunks of meat. (Rev. 9:8; Joel 1:6)
-Even the Devil, also pictured as a lion (1 Pet. 5:8), will be used as an instrument of judgment upon Israel. (Hos. 13:8)
Conclusion:. Today the Sons of God ought to have the boldness of a lion. “The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.”
(Prov. 28:1) The question may well be asked as Nahum did, “Where is the dwelling of the lions, and the feeding place of the young lions, where the lion, even the old lion, walked, and the lions whelp, and none made them afraid?” (Nah. 2:11)

Those who have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. This not only includes the lost, but the very people who call themselves by His Name [in word only], BUT NOT IN DEED. CHRISTIANS AND JEWS WAKE UP AND REPENT FOR THE TIME IS NEAR! STOP BREAKING GOD’S COMMANDMENTS!
20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!
22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink, 23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe, and deprive the innocent of his right!
24 Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom go up like dust; for they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against his people, and he stretched out his hand against them and smote them, and the mountains quaked; and their corpses were as refuse in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away and his hand is stretched out still.
26 He will raise a signal for a nation afar off, and whistle for it from the ends of the earth; and lo, swiftly, speedily it comes! 27 None is weary, none stumbles, none slumbers or sleeps, not a waistcloth is loose, not a sandal-thong broken; 28 their arrows are sharp, all their bows bent, their horses’ hoofs seem like flint, and their wheels like the whirlwind.
29 Their roaring is like a lion, like young lions they roar; they growl and seize their prey, they carry it off, and none can rescue. 30 They will growl over it on that day, like the roaring of the sea. And if one look to the land, behold, darkness and distress; and the light is darkened by its clouds.
Yeshua’ means “Yaweh is salvation”
Origin of the Name of “Jesus”:
JESUS m Theology, Biblical
English form of Ιησους (Iesous), which was the Greek form of the Aramaic name יֵשׁוּעַ (Yeshu’a)… [more]
FROM HEBREW TO ENGLISH:
Yeshua’ (Hebrew) —> Joshua (English)
FROM HEBREW TO GREEK TO LATIN TO ENGLISH:
The New testament was originally written in Greek then translated into Latin then translated into English. But the MEANING of the name of Yeshua’ remains the same: Yaweh is salvation!
“Linguistically it is clear how the rendering of the Hebrew Yeshua’ () developed into the English Jesus:
Yeshua’ (Hebrew) —> Ιησους, Iēsous (Greek) —> Iesus (Latin) —> Jesus (English)
“Russians call him by his Russian name, Chinese call him by his Chinese name, and Arabs call him by his Arabic name, all of which are different transliterations of his original name into different language systems. In fact, although the spelling of Jesus’ name in the European languages English, German, French and Spanish is very similar, the pronunciation is quite different since the same letters have different phonetic values in those languages.” [SOURCE: Jochen Katz]
The name “Jesus” has no connection to “Zeus” or “Jupiter (Jove)…
NOTE: Contrary to false teaching, satanism, luciferic teachings and sorcery, the Greek name Iēsous (the Latinized form of the Greek name Ιησούς for Jesus) does NOT correspond to “zeus,” the mythological Greek king of the gods. KEY NOTE: It’s SOUS (not zeus) “S” not “Z” !
“…in the Greek it is spelled with the “s” (sigma), not with a “z” (zeta). The difference between sous and zeus is as great as the difference in English between soo and zoo. While they may rhyme, and be similar in sound, they are far from the same word.” [SOURCE: Stephen Jones, Jesus (Iesous) and Yahshua]
Likewise, “Jupiter” the Roman equivalent for the mythological king of the gods, Latin=”Jove”) has no connection to the name “Jesus” either. “Iesus” (Latin for Iēsous, Jesus). Otherwise the Greek name for Jesus “Iēsous” would’ve been translated “Jove” pronounced “Jo-vay” (Jupiter) in the Latin! But it was NOT. It was translated “Iesus.” To illustrate this point further, the Italian language which is derived directly from Latin still uses the same word for Jupiter to this day: “Giove” also pronounced “Jo-vay” (in Italian the Latin “J’s” were replaced with “G’s,” as there is no “j” in the italian alphabet). NOT Gesù (prounounced jay-Su) which is the Italian name for Jesus!).
In simplest terms: If the original Greek for Jesus meant “Zeus,” then it would have been translated “Jove” in the Latin. BUT IT WAS NOT BECAUSE JESUS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ZEUS!
Names of Jesus is other languages:
Ιησούς (Greek) (Latinized Greek: Iēsous)
Iesus (Latin) language of the ancient Romans
Gesù (Italiano) *No letter “J” in the Italian alphabet
耶穌愛你 – Yè sou ai ni “Jesus loves you” (mandarin – chinese)
Iesu (Irish Gaelic)
Jezi (Haitian Creole)
…more languages to come.
