When Jesus, the mighty Lion of Judah, died and rose again, he eternally defeated sin, death, hell and the devil. Jesus now lives and stands in eternal victory, which he graciously extends to all of those who place their faith in him as Savior and Lord.
“You are a lion’s cub, O Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness–who dares to rouse him? The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his.” (Genesis 49:9-10)
“Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.’” (Revelation 5:5)
Judah’s greatest descendant is Jesus Christ, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16). The lion symbolizes Jesus’ kingship, power, strength, victory and sovereignty.
I got the idea for this drawing as I was praising God to a very high exaltation song I wrote called, “The Lion of Judah Reigns”. As I worshiped, I felt the majesty, power, authority and kingship of Jesus’s presence as he reigned on high. Jesus’ name is above every other name! (The drawing, Lion of Judah Arising” (Praise and Worship Series 2) was also inspired out of times worshiping to this song.)
“That power [of God] is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at this right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” (Ephesians 1:19-23)
“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
These Lion of Judah drawings were featured on the covers of Geoff Waugh’s Lion of Judah series of books. The books describe the titles, reign, life, death, resurrection and Spirit of Jesus. Please see The Renewal Journal website for more information on the books.
