Jesus Christ Our Lord, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5), is not always safe to be around. In the words of C.S. Lewis, “He’s not a tame lion!”
In this video, a male lion–totally ignoring the cars and the gawking onlookers who don’t understand what they’re seeing–takes down and kills an adult wildebeest all by himself. Our pop culture likes to present male lions as lazy duffers: but watch how this lion moves. That could be you, instead of the wildebeest.
To have no fear of Jesus Christ the Son of God is to have no sense. Even the gnus are wiser than that. For He will come again and claim His kingdom on the earth, and He will judge us all. Those who had no fear before will have it then… but it will be too late.
Seek God’s mercy and forgiveness now. His grace is inexhaustible.
But his power is much, much more than any lion’s.

excellent analogy. The FEAR of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom.
People sometimes forget that lions are not zoo animals, but at the time the Bible was written, a lion was one of the most frightening beasts on earth. I would definitely not want to taunt the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
When He returns next time, nobody will dare taunt or doubt HIM in anything.
