“The Lion Roars” – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Dec. 10, 2019
“…Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5, NKJV
Several times it has occurred, during the height of the praise and worship of gathered people when it reaches a crescendo, I have seen with my spiritual eyes the Lion of Judah roaring. The King, the Lord Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, seated high and lifted up on His heavenly throne, roars. When His glory and the honor due His Name is acknowledged in our praise, He moves in power and might on our behalf.
During a room-packed conference several years ago, with almost 1900 people, when the height of the evening meeting worship reached a tremendous level, I first saw Him there in our gathering, as I too was joining in as part of the worship team, singing as loud and strong as I could from the front platform. When I looked up at the very large brown wooden wall in the rear of The Barn, which was built a decade earlier on the Heritage USA property in Fort Mill, South Carolina by Jim Bakker, I saw Him, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. He was roaring. His mouth, open wide, baring His teeth in fierceness and power, roared across the earth from His heavenly throne.

Our Lord is not laying in a manger anymore. That was centuries ago when He first came to redeem us as a sinful people, and restore us to fellowship with His Father, God Almighty.
He no longer is a tiny baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes, “cute as a button” as some would say, peacefully lying asleep on the hay.
No, our Lord, the Risen One, the Glorious One, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, is a Mighty Warrior. And the Lion is roaring.
Though the nations in all the earth themselves are in an uproar, with chaos increasing, unrest never-ending, darkness continuing to cover all the people…the Lion of the Tribe of Judah is roaring. He is fully aware of the situation, and He is doing something about it.
His prophet Isaiah spoke loudly and clear as recorded in chapter 8:9-10,
“You may make an uproar, peoples; but you will be shattered.  Listen, all of you from distant lands: arm yourselves, but you will be shattered; yes, arm yourselves, but you will be shattered; devise a plan, but it will come to nothing; say anything you like, but it won’t happen; because God is with us [Hebrew: ‘immanu El].” Complete Jewish Bible
Though the seasonal song Immanuel continues to be sung during the time Christians have long celebrated His birth, which in many eyes still keeps Him quiet and still in the sweet nativity scene, harmless and in need as a tiny baby, our Lord is indeed with us, Immau-El (Hebrew – God (EL) with us). But now He is a Mighty Warrior and prepared for war.

“God is serious business. He won’t be trifled with. He avenges his foes. He stands up against his enemies, fierce and raging. But God doesn’t lose his temper. He’s powerful, but it’s a patient power. Still, no one gets by with anything.
Sooner or later, everyone pays. Tornadoes and hurricanes are the wake of his passage, storm clouds are the dust he shakes off his feet. He yells at the sea: It dries up. All the rivers run dry.
The Bashan and Carmel mountains shrivel, the Lebanon orchards shrivel. Mountains quake in their roots, hills dissolve into mud flats. Earth shakes in fear of God. The whole world’s in a panic.
Who can face such towering anger? Who can stand up to this fierce rage? His anger spills out like a river of lava, his fury shatters boulders.” Nahum 1:2-6, THE MESSAGE
There is an appointed time when the nations of the world will face their Judge, when God Almighty says enough is enough, for the time will have come for His perfect justice to prevail. His all-encompassing righteousness will sweep across the earth. His plan and purpose for the ages to be fulfilled completely as spoken of through His prophets in ages gone by will have arrived.
When the Lion roars, the peoples will turn from their wicked ways, and acknowledge the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Either that, or they will perish because of their sinful ways done apart from Him, and be banished to hell forever.
No longer will they just see Him as a sweet baby lying in a harmless manger, keeping Him in a lowly place so their lives need not walk in obedience to His commands.
They will then see Him come riding on His white horse, mighty in glory, power and honor.
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.
From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, ” KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:11-16, NASU
The time is short, and we must prepare our hearts for the second coming of the King. We don’t have time to do our own thing, walk in our own ways, or be the god of our own life that far too many seek to be.
The Lion is roaring from His throne. It is time we hear Him loud and clear, and be about His work of redemption and salvation, for all who will come to Him.
Now think on this.

“On His Terms” – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

“On His Terms” – Now Think On This by Steve Martin

“Yes, he (Jacob) wrestled with the angel and prevailed; he wept and sought His favor. He found Him at Bethel and there He spoke with us, even the Lord, the God of hosts, the Lord is His name.” Hosea 12:4-5, NASU
Rather than ask if you have ever wrestled with God yourself, the proper question would be, “How many times have you wrestled with God?”
We all have if we are honest with ourselves. The Lord speaks something to us, and rather than just say, “Yes, Lord” like Mary did when the angel came to her with the news of Yeshua’s (Jesus’) coming birth, we act as if He isn’t speaking to us, or He probably is asking the wrong person to do it.
“Let Thomas do it” may be what comes to our mind. Or, “I think Suzie should be the one, not me. After all, look at what she has already done.”
We often choose to dismiss or even ignore, when the Holy Spirit prompts us with a word, giving us an assignment or asking us to perform a task that might take us out of our comfort zone. And then, where is our faith?
It is often thought that if we allow the Lord to speak to us, however He wants – through His Word, another person, or circumstances, as He did with Jonah, Jacob, or any number of examples that have been given to us in the Bible – He might ask us to go to Africa, or speak a word to our neighbor, who we really don’t care for any (if we even know our neighbor these days.)
My response regarding the “Africa” word was always, “Sure. Send me.” I have always wanted to go since I was a 10-year-old. But that is not the general case with people. (And in time I will!)
When it comes to who is Lord, do we decide when and where He has rule in our life? Do we tell Him, “Yes I will” for this but “No I won’t” for that? On whose terms do we make the decisions we do, when He directs our steps?
Jesus knows us. He knows before we respond how we will respond, but He keeps giving us opportunities to make the right response. Or at least He will for a while before He leaves us to do as we want, and reap the consequences of the choice we made.
He told the parable about the two sons, after each hearing a command of their father, as follows in Matthew 21:28-32.
“Tell me what you think of this story: A man had two sons. He went up to the first and said, ‘Son, go out for the day and work in the vineyard.’ “The son answered, ‘I don’t want to.’ Later on he thought better of it and went.
“The father gave the same command to the second son. He answered, ‘Sure, glad to.’ But he never went. “Which of the two sons did what the father asked?”
They said, “The first.”
Jesus said, “Yes, and I tell you that crooks and whores are going to precede you into God’s kingdom. John came to you showing you the right road. You turned up your noses at him, but the crooks and whores believed him. Even when you saw their changed lives, you didn’t care enough to change and believe him.” THE MESSAGE version
Wow! Notice who Jesus said would precede ones into God’s kingdom? The crooks and the whores. They believed, and thus did what He asked. What does that say about us when we hear and turn a deaf ear to what the Lord is speaking to us?
And then on whose terms will we carry out His desires? Do we put parameters around it, just enough to make it palatable, and easy to do?
Our walk with the Lord will take us off the convenient path, the easy way out, the comfortable couch that we love to sit on. Faith is an act of obedience.
Decide to choose to walk in faith next time the Lord gives you the privilege of hearing His voice, His Word, by choosing to give it to you. The more you respond in a positive, obedient manner, the more you will see the perfect will He has for your life being carried out.
It is up to you.
And if you have said no in the past, there is room for repentance. Ask for His forgiveness, and He will once again show you the way you are to go.
Now think on this and see what good things the Lord has in store for you and those around you.

Quotes

The year of Jubilee is the year of restoration, it’s the year of returning home, it’s the year of God’s favor, year of being set free. –Rabbi Jonathan Cahn
When it looks hopeless in your life, when it’s a barren desert and you say, “There’s no hope,” God says, “No I can take a desert the desert of your life and turn it into the Garden of Eden. As I made Israel blossom, I will make your life blossom.”

Scriptures

Leviticus 25:10 MEV You shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all the inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee to you, and each of you shall return to his possession, and every person shall return to his family.
Deuteronomy 28:64 MEV The Lord will scatter you among all the peoples, from the one end of the earth to the other, and there you will serve other gods, wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known.
Jeremiah 31:10 MEV Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the coastlands far off, and say, “He who scattered Israel will gather him and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock.”
Deuteronomy 29:22 MEV The generation to come, your children who will rise up after you and the foreigner who will come from a far land, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the Lord has laid on it, will say.
Deuteronomy 30:3 MEV Then the Lord your God will overturn your captivity and have compassion on you and will return and gather you from all the nations, where the Lord your God has scattered you.
Isaiah 62:4 NLT Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the Lord delights in you and will claim you as his bride.
Ezekiel 37:1 MEV The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He carried me out in the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones.
Ezekiel 37:4 MEV Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.”
