A Letter From Jesus: The Lion’s Heart
The nature of the Lion is one to be examined. Although fierce, the Lion is also moved by love. He is a protector at heart and he is a provider by nature. To come to understand the Lion’s attributes, you would need to understand his habitat. He is adaptable in all circumstances but he is not moved by his surroundings. Where he steps, he reigns. Where he moves, he has dominion. My people call out to me as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, yet they know nothing of my nature. They know very little of my habitat. What is Judah, to you? To whom do you say that I am? You see, I come as fierce as a Lion, but I love as gentle as a Lamb. How can these two natures exist in One? Allow me to explain…
So often I am portrayed as a King upon a throne. And so it is. This I AM. Yet when man refers to me as only this King upon a throne, there is then created a disconnect. As Holy as I am, I am still the gentle servant that you once fell in love with. A servant’s heart never graduates to an accelerated level of dispute. I never leave my stature as servant. How unapproachable and untouchable the religious people have made me out to be! I do not sit on a throne and reign down judgement to break hearts! I am endlessly interceding for you and your well-being! I am leaning to the Father and pointing out the beautiful obedience in your heart! I am calling forth my Holy Spirit and directing Him to where He needs to lead you next! Never allow the world to harden your heart to my love. Never believe the lie that I am “too far away” or that I am “too holy” to care. It is because of my holiness that I am close and care deeply for you. I am gentle, yes, but I also love relentlessly. I do not give up so easily when man pushes me away. You see, my patience and compassion are not birthed from weakness, instead it comes from my unyielding strength. The ability to love without expecting love back is what love is truly all about. If it is not sacrificial, it is not love.
Yet as a Lion is fierce, so it is with me. I tell you as Truth, I shall never sit idly by and watch as you feel life is too hard. Never! I shall never sit and ponder the thought of helping you! Your present help is my Holy Spirit! But understand this, dear one, I am jealous for you. I have given you no permission to lavish your love on things of the world. I will never permit your heart to instead love someone more than myself. I have full dominion over your heart, this was the desired purpose my Father established. Some may call this selfish, but I call this protection. You were created whole and I want you as whole. Never will I settle for half of anything given from you! My beloved, I run to be with you. The moment you lock eyes with mine, I become weak and place my hand upon my heart as if it has stopped beating for eternity. How can you possibly take my breath away? How can the creation cause the Creator to marvel at their beauty? So it is. You captured my mind, you took over my thoughts, and when I created you, you were birthed out of love. So as a Lion watches intently over his Lioness, so I watch my protection over you.
You must know this…in this you must receive full revelation: I died to keep you. Eternity would not have been “good” if you were missing from it. I could not see to it that you would not be here. I have seen the day that you will stand before my throne and oh the beauty you possess! Dressed in white and lavished in righteousness, you will bow with joy as your King takes your hand for all the world to see. Strive with obedience and love me greatly. This as your King, is what I require of you. And oh how proud you have made me thus far…
