Like a lion is NOT a Lion.

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8 NASB 

This passage is almost always associated with attacks when weak. But lately it’s been coming to mind for so much more than that, which I always heed as a warning. This morning I was given additional texts so here I am sharing what’s been given. Bare with me as I attempt to piece this together. 

As you see I bold the like a roaring lion, when a lion roars it is essentially speaking. And those that are near LISTEN intently. Another word I want to point out is it says “LIKE” a roaring lion. Why is this so important to notice? 

No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

2 Corinthians 11:14 

Because Satan, the Devil, disguises himself as the Light, Jesus, GOD. When he sees a weak prey he then looks to devour him by the things that he SAYS. He will speak directly to your pain. How can he know your pain so perfectly? Because he orchestrated it of course.

 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

John 10:10 NASB 

So what happens when he gets in your ear, in your pain and weakness? This is why Peter warns to be be SOBER & on ALERT because he will come to you as a messenger of light. To help you, he will speak scriptures to you and guide you to healing. You might be wondering why in the world would Satan want me to know scriptures? Because if he can’t twist them and enslave you then you begin to worship HIM as God, his whole purpose in life is to be seen as God. What better way than through scriptures. 

We are warned repeatedly about false teachers, apostles and prophets. Do you think they will use anything other than what you consider the “WORD”? 

Paul continues in 1 Corinthians 11 telling the people how they are the ones who accepted this enslaving. 

For you tolerate it if anyone enslaves you, anyone devours you, anyone takes advantage of you, anyone exalts himself, anyone hits you in the face.

2 Corinthians 11:20 NASB

We see the same thing happening to the Galatians. 

You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified?

Galatians 3:1 NASB 

They too believed in what someone had told them. Let’s continue in Galatians to see what they had believed. 

This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh? Did you suffer so many things in vain-if indeed it was in vain? So then, does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?

Galatians 3:2‭-‬5 NASB

Interesting. It appears that they had been freed and then believed they must WORK to finish what Jesus had done. 

Let’s jump to Timothy and see what Paul has to say. 

Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. Be on guard against him yourself, for he vigorously opposed our teaching.  At my first defense no one supported me, but all deserted me; may it not be counted against them. But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fully accomplished, and that all the Gentiles might hear; and I was rescued out of the lion’s mouth. The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed, and will bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom; to Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

2 Timothy 4:14‭-‬18 

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8 NASB 

Alexander did much harm to Paul by vigorously opposing the teaching of FREEDOM IN CHRIST. Paul was rescused out of the MOUTH of the LION. From the words of SATAN. Paul warns them to be on guard. Same meaning as be on alert. 

Friends, I share this with you today because so many are falling prey to worshiping Satan disguised as God. You’re not sober in mind, you’re riddled with idols therefore you’re unable to see and hear the Lord through them. You’re doubleminded and enslaved to your flesh. You’ve been slapped in the face and have accepted it. 

Be FREE from your flesh. Walk in your freedom and know what the Spirit of TRUTH says about WHO YOU ARE. 

I urge you to read the Book of JUDE, understand that this book is a warning to the Church today. Then I urge you to read the letters to the churches in Revelations. What I write is not my opinion but what is happening to the children of God, today. They have been bewitched.

  1. we may expound insight upon Scripture, yes, but the ONLY TRUTH is CHRIST GOD’s Scriptural TRUTH . I am named Timothy, and remain quite aware in life experience on earth to know the devil roars “LIKE” a LION, yet is never comparable to holiness the LION of JUDAH, JESUS CHRIST . God’s will be done . blessed be God in his holy angels and saints!
