God’s Word, the Lamb, Becomes His Lion of Judah!
Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Messiah, the Lamb of God. I believe that soon we will celebrate his return to rule and reign as the Lion of Judah.
John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
It has been said: “As a man speaks, so is he.” When Jesus, the Lamb of God, speaks to mankind, it is God speaking directly to his creation. And it is the Lamb, returning as the Lion of Judah, by which all the things he has spoken will be fulfilled. The Lamb has earned the right to claim the title deed to all creation found in the book where it is recorded. He comes at the end of the tribulation period to claim his earth and to establish his kingdom on it for a thousand years.
Revelation 19:13,14 – And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Revelation 5:5 – And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
John the Baptist identified Jesus as the Lamb of God to the Apostle John, who later identified him to us as the Lamb who is the Lion of Judah.
John 1:35 – Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;  And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
Revelation 5:6 – And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Zechariah identified the Lamb as the Branch out of David, who also had the same seven eyes engraved on a stone with complete authority marked by seven horns. The seven eyes present the Lamb as possessing the full omniscience of the Spirit and the ten horns represent the Lamb as having the full omnipotence of the Father. And the Stone will crush the 10 toes of Daniel’s great statue of man’s historical kingdoms.
Zechariah 3:8,9 – Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.  For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
Colossians 2:9 –For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Matthew 28:18 – And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Daniel indicated that the Lamb would return as a Lion and topple the great statue of Nebuchadnezzar, which symbolized all the kingdoms man has established since the flood up to the coming of the Lion of Judah. The Stone of Daniel is the same Stone of Zechariah.
Daniel 2:32-35 – This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,  His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.  Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.  Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
The head of gold represents the Babylonian empire of Daniel’s day, the breast and arms of silver the Medo-Persian empire which followed, the the brass belly and thighs the Grecian empire, the two iron legs the great Roman empire of John’s day, and the 10 toes the coming Islamic empire of the antichrist. The return of the Stone will mark the establishment of God’s government (a great mountain), which will cover the whole earth.
Daniel 7:7 – After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
The fourth beast is the old Roman Empire, and out of the southern flank of its ashes will arise 10 Arab nation horns, which will compose the final empire of the one we call antichrist.
The 10 toes of the great statue represent the same 10 horns of Daniel’s fourth beast, and I believe the ingredients for the assembling of these 10 nations are now beginning to gel in the Middle East. The Arabs of Iraq are delighted to be free of Saddam Hussein, but they hate us. To them we will be the big devil, and Israel will be the little devil, until Jesus comes. We, according to the Koran, are infidels, and are hell bound. There is no way under heaven this will change until the Lion returns. They are free from Saddam and now, being set free by us for the first time since the tyrant came to power, they can demonstrate openly and violently to get rid of us. Make no mistake, when the 10 toes come against Israel, Iraq will be one of them. We will never be able to establish a democratic government in Iraq that has any possibility of lasting. Only when the Stone of Daniel returns, to end the battle of Armageddon, will a genuine, lasting peace come to this earth with the Stone reigning over it. He will be given a kingdom that fills the whole earth.
Daniel 7:13,14 – I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.  And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
WATCH THE TERRORIST GROUPS IN ISRAEL!!! When Syria and Iran temporarily call them off long enough for Israel to be lulled into a false sense of security, then a brief false peace will come to Israel. It will be followed by a surprise, Pearl Harbor like, Jihad from the north by 10 Arab nations. I believe it likely that this attack will occur prior to 2008, and will be followed by 3 and ½ years of tribulation, which will end with the 2nd Advent of Christ to close the battle of Armageddon.
