He is called

king of beasts





This lion is the king

To his family he will bring

To the den their thing

Animals do not like her fling.




"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.  

  And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox."

Isaiah 11:6, 7


 Lions 3

A little girl in the dark corner of Ethiopia, 12 years old, she was abducted one day by a band of sinners.  They took that little girl and misused her and abused her and raped her and beat her and the idea was she was to become the wife of one of them.  The wives of that part of Ethiopia were first abducted.  And I don’t know why this little girl decided she didn’t want to do that.  You know that some people do right because the Spirit deals with them directly.  They haven’t been taught and they haven’t had Bible studies.  She decided this is not for me.  And so they mistreated her and kept it up for a long, long time.  Now they are out in the wilderness next to the jungle.  And they start again.  When suddenly three lions walked out of the woods, three father lions.  Now I have driven through the Cougar National Park, in South Africa. I have seen the lions that match the clump of grass.  I have gone to places in Kenya and seen them in places there but the lions of Ethiopia are different, they have black curly manes, national symbol of the country, One Ruler owned one and called himself the lion of the tribe of Judah.  Three lions walked out of the Jungle and made an announcement. and when the lions spoke, these nefarious men took off and left the girl close to unconcious, and the lions laid down and the uncle said they must have guarded her body over three hours.  Finally along came the police with men and family searching for that little girl. and when they drove up the lions simply got up and walked back into the jungle.  Are you impressed with that?  There’s somebody watching over me.

    "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:  

   Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.  

   Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"

1 Peter 5:6-8  



  Lions Den

It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom;  

And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage.  

Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit [was] in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.  

Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.  

Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.  

Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the king, and said thus unto him, King Darius, live for ever.  

All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.  

Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign the writing, that it be not changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.  

Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and the decree.  

Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime.  

Then these men assembled, and found Daniel praying and making supplication before his God.  

Then they came near, and spake before the king concerning the king's decree; Hast thou not signed a decree, that every man that shall ask a petition of any God or man within thirty days, save of thee, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions? The king answered and said, The thing is true, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.  

Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three times a day.  

Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.  

Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed.  

Then the king commanded, and they brought Daniel, and cast himinto the den of lions. Now the king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee.  

And a stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the signet of his lords; that the purpose might not be changed concerning Daniel.  

  Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of music brought before him: and his sleep went from him.  

  Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.  

  And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?  

  Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.  

  My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.  

  Then was the king exceeding glad for him, and commanded that they should take Daniel up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God.  

  And the king commanded, and they brought those men which had accused Daniel, and they cast them into the den of lions, them, their children, and their wives; and the lions had the mastery of them, and brake all their bones in pieces or ever they came at the bottom of the den.  

  Then king Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.  

  I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.  

  He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.  

So this Daniel prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian.  

Daniel 6:1-28




  “The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken.  

The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad.” 

Job 4:10-11

“He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.  

  He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.”

Psalms 10:9,10

“A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any;”

Proverbs 30:30

In the wild out in the tall grass lands, when a lion is hungry, he puts out a roar and all the animals within hearing of this great noise, freeze in their tracks as if paralyzed.  They do not know where the lion is or when they will be pounced upon. They just know he is right there very near and they could be the one under attack. When the lion gives his roar he is not the one to take on the race for the prey, but the female lion leaps for the food until caught.  The lion can run 40 miles per hour for short distances. Then the father who gave the roar comes for the feast after the wife does all the work of catching it.  The daddy eats first, then the mommy and afterward the baby.

The groups of lions that live together are called a pride. there can be from five to thirty female lionesses in a pride and one or two or up to four male lions to keep watch. But the young male lions leave and are on their own after a couple of years or so.

This catching of prey is what the devil does also.  He paralyzes and hypnotizes his victim and puts all the dazzling temptations before them so that they fall into all his traps and snares.  The only way to safety is to call on the name of Jesus for help continually.

The lions are well camouflaged with their light brown colors creeping through the tall brush and dry grass and sometimes they work as a team to sneak up on the animals they want for dinner.






The lion is the strongest of all beast 

of prey. A beast of prey is an animal 

  that lives by killing other animals

  and eating their flesh for food. 

When a lion thinks there is danger 

near, he stands erect, with his head 

high in the air, his eyes glaring, and his 

teeth shining through his open jaws, while 

he lashes his sides with his long tail in a 

fearful way. Would you like to meet such 

an animal when he is angry?

He is as strong as he is beautiful. One 

stroke from his paw can break the back of 

an ox, and he can carry or drag the body 

of an ox in his teeth almost any distance.

The teeth of a lion are like a cat's. If 

you would like to see how it is, catch your 

kitty and look at her teeth. The tongue 

of a lion is covered with sharp, horny 

points, and a few strokes with it will draw 


A gentleman owned a little tame lion, 

which was frolicsome and playful as a 

kitten. It ran all over the house just as it 

liked, and was not feared by any one in the 

family. It had never killed an animal, and 

had never tasted blood, and all thought he 

did not have the ferocious, blood-thirsty 

nature that other lions have.

The gentleman lay down one day to take 

a nap, and his hand fell over the side of the 

bed. The little lion was frisking about, 

enjoying itself upon the floor, when it saw 

its master's hand, and like an affectionate 

dog commenced licking it.

The man did not stir, and the cub drew 

his file-like tongue across his hand, which 

drew the blood and awoke the gentleman.

The man tried to take away his hand, but 

the lion claimed it, and growling fiercely, 

held it between his strong teeth. .

The gentleman had a pistol under his 

pillow. He reached over and took it with 

his other hand, and shot the little fellow 

dead on the spot. Thus you see the taste 

of blood had aroused the blood-thirsty 

nature of the animal, and he was no longer

 to be trusted.

The lion, like the cat, has cushions on his 

toes, and can walk so still that he is not 

heard till he is ready to spring upon his 

prey. He has terrible claws hidden in his 

fore feet; but he can throw them out when 

be wishes. When he has once fastened his 

claws in the flesh of an animal, it is 

impossible to shake him off.

The lions of Southern Africa are very 

large, measuring eleven feet in length,   

including tail, and four feet in height.

When the lions are quite small, their 

mother never leaves them for a moment. 

But when they are strong enough to trot by 

her side, she takes them out into the

 woods or a walk, and if she can find a 

young and tender animal, she catches it for

 their lunch.

The young lions are quick to learn, and 

are soon hunting as they have seen their

mother do, while the father and mother 

stand by to see that the game does not get 

away. When a lion is two years old, it 

has strength enough to attack an ox.

When a lion is about thirty years old, he 

begins to grow weak, and will not attack 

strong animals. When he is quite old, he 

is contented to lie at home, where he half 

starves, grows weak, and finally dies. This 

is what Job means when he says, "The old 

lion perisheth for lack of prey."

The lion never leaves his den in the day- 

time, unless he is suffering for water, or 

from some other cause. Dr. Livingstone 

says, "He then skulks along, half asleep, 

looking like the largest dog you ever saw 

in your life. If he sees you, he stands a 

second or two, then turns slowly around 

and walks as slowly away for a dozen 

paces, looking over his shoulder; then he

 begins to trot, and when he thinks himself

 out of sight, bounds off like a greyhound."

What is compared to "a roaring lion, 

seeking whom he may devour"?

Do you not want to get to that happy 

place where " the wolf shall dwell with the 

lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the 

kid, and the calf and the young lion and 

the falling together ; and the cow and the 

bear shall feed, their young ones shall lie 

down together, and the lion shall eat straw 

like the ox"? 



It is related that an 

Indian once brought up a young lion, and 

finding him weak and harmless, never  

attempted to control him. Every day the 

lion gained in strength, and became more 

difficult to manage. At last, when excited 

by rage, he fell upon the Indian and tore 

him in pieces. It is thus with evil habits and

 bad passions. They are like this lion. If   

indulged in youth, they will cause you much 

vexation in after life, and may perhaps   

destroy you. Remember, and beware.




THE word dandelion is made up of three 

French words, dent de lion, a lion's tooth. 

It receives this name because its leaves are 

of the peculiar form called by botanists 

runcinate, the lobes or teeth of the leaf in- 

clining backward, as the teeth of the lion 

do. It is in this way that flowers, plants, 

animals, and almost all things, get their 

names; the most prominent characteristic 

or peculiarity is taken, and a corresponding 

name given.
