The Lion of Judah

Hosea quoted God as saying, "For I will be like a lion to Ephraim, And like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, even I, will tear to pieces and go away, I will carry away, and there will be none to deliver" (Hos 5:14).

In Revelation, an elder calmed John by saying, "Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals" (Rev 5:5).

I liked this quote:

"Trying to defend God is like trying to defend a caged lion. He doesn't need your help. Just unlock the cage." (Source unknown)

The Lion has overcome ... and there will be none to deliver. Sometimes Christianity is not the tame, timid religion a lot of people seem to think it should be, eh?
