The Lion Pressing Onward

I saw the above picture a few days ago and decided to make it my background on my desktop. First of all, it’s a wonderful picture in and of itself. However, I chose it for a reason; as a reminder.

I thinks it’s a very prophetic photo of our Lord and His pursuit of the Church, His bride.

In it, I see the Lord as the lion (Jesus is often called the Lion of Judah). The Lion is in pursuit. His destination is the Church, His pursuit is her heart, and nothing will stop Him. The Enemy attempts to throw some wind and sand in His face, but that won’t stop Him. What’s a little wind and sand in the eyes anyhow to such a powerful creature?

The Lord is willing to travel and move across miles and miles of terrain, wind, and rain to reach His destination; to reach His bride, His beautiful woman to be.

I feel that right now the Lord is moving, coming ever closer to that day where He will consummate His marriage with her, the “Bride of the Lamb”. Every day He pushes onward, never stopping, never-resting. The consuming thought of having her drives Him, nothing else seems to matter but her. Nothing is strong enough to stop Him.

The wonderful part is that you, dear follower of Christ, are part of His bride. He is consumed by the thought of having you all for Himself.

Those are my thoughts on the photo, what are yours?

Below is a song about the Lion of Judah returning by Jason Upton. Enjoy 🙂

  1. What I felt as I read your article is that the bride reciprocates His driving love. Everyday our loves grows stronger for Him and in Him. Do we not feel as though we are running free with Him without thought of anything else? Every portion of us seems to hunger for more of our Lover. Does not our heart pound with every new light Father gives us, elevating us to unimaginable heights in our vision of Him? What awesomeness there is in the power of His Love! Love spells out from within us and showers upon one another because we cannot not help but express His love in us. Such a Love we could never dare to dream of becomes ever larger, more astounding, continually expanding our hearts beyond an immeasurable distance of time and space. His power and His love is without limit! He could never be anything less than our Everything, our All, our Lord Jesus Christ.
