When I read the word roar, the first thing that comes to mind was the scripture in 1 Peter 5:8 that tells us that Satan goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
One day there will be a thunderous roar in heaven when Jesus stands up and says “Enough!” and comes to get His bride the church. Oh how I look forward to that day. I long for it. There is not a day that goes by in which I don’t think of Jesus’ soon return. With each passing day, it seems as though it’s eminent.
There was day 2,000 years ago, when the crowd roared “Crucify Him!” and the roaring lion thought he had won the victory. Little did he know that three days later, Jesus Christ would emerge from the tomb, not a vanquished foe, but a triumphant Victor. A Victor over sin and death.
Now that ought to elicit a loud roar of praise from my lips…Thank You Jesus!
