Surely the Lord God does nothing,
Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
8 A lion has roared!
Who will not fear?
The Lord God has spoken!
Who can but prophesy?
Amos 3: 7-8
Wow. I had a strange dream this morning, so many different scenes. The very last thing though that I saw before I woke up was myself standing on a mountain with a huge afro around my head. The afro was also shaped in a funny way, like a flame (it would take a lot of hair gel to keep that hairstyle fixed :-p). I also saw my face, but over my face I saw what appeared to be the face of a lion. It was almost like a drawing on a transparent film which was overlayed on my face.
I woke up feeling quite excited. I realised that the afro was my mane, which corresponded to the face of a lion that appeared over my face. God really has a sense of humour. Maybe I should actually grow an afro…the Bible does say that a woman’s her is her crown… 🙂
So I was searching the Scriptures all day, googling and coming across some very interesting articles. Mainly the visions of Ezekiel who saw four living creatures, each with four faces, those of a man, a lion, an ox and an eagle (Ezekiel 1: 1-28) as well as the vision that John had when he was in heaven (Revelations 4: 4-11). He too saw these four living creatures with four faces, who surrounded the throne and worshipped Jesus. I will post a really good article about these living creatures and what each of the faces mean below.
The article that spoke to me the most was from the Enliven Ministries blog. I am currently enrolled in the online prophetic school of this ministry and I would highly recommend it to everyone who is interested in the prophetic. This is the verse that spoke to me whilst reading Helen Calder’s (founder of Enliven Ministries) prophetic vision which she had in 2013:
1 Chronicles 12:8 (NKJV)
8 Some Gadites joined David at the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty men of valor, men trained for battle, who could handle shield and spear, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as gazelles on the mountains:
Her articles goes into greater depth about these faces of lions. More here:
I am just so honoured to be chosen to be part of God’s army, to be HIs end-time warrior, to be chosen to destroy the works of the devil and to drive him out of the land. Amen!!
Be courageous dear Reader, fight the good fight and always follow your King bravely into battle. Then you shall conquer and you shall be given your crown which shall never perish. Jesus is the Lion of Judah, it is only fitting that we should be transfooromed by the renewing of our minds to be more and more like Him.
Be richly blessed in Christ Jesus our Lord
