Lion Kills the Cub- A lesson of humanity


Hello All,

I was watching an episode of the Savage Kingdom Leopard Rock on National Geographic's           savage-kingdom-lions-leopards-hyenas This particular scene had me so surprised. It had to do with a lioness who was hunting and found a baby leopard cub.

The leopard the mother had gone off to hunt and when she returned looking for the cub she found that the lioness had captured the baby cub.

The leopard approached the lioness; not in combat because somehow the leopardess knew she wasn't a formidable opponent. Any such display of aggressiveness she too would have been hunted.   Gesturing to let the lioness know she had possession of her baby cub and that she had returned to retrieve him.

However,

 The lioness aggressively, warned the leopardess and leopardess backed off; BUT WAIT! Here's what happen next. The lioness could have easily eaten her catch the baby cub was in her mouth; but she turned her back to the mother leopard placed the cub on the ground and walked away.  The cub was dead.

The  mother leopard then grab the baby cub and pulled the dead cub up a tree and mourned until it was time to move on. The cub was dead why didn't the lion eat the cub she was hungry on the verge of starvation? It was already in her mouth?

This made a gazillion of thoughts reamed through the parameters of my mind. So many lessons I was taught from this single gesture.

 I will always remember this episode and its impact on me. It made me think that even in our moments of desperation, hunger, pursuit, pain, rage, success and sorrow.

The gestures of compassion, civility, respect, humanity, morality, decency and equality is still powerful and that these simple acts are essential elements & examples or keys to success and survival of our brokenness.

 How many people and souls need to perish before we realize that we are essential to each other in one way or another even if we are at two opposing ends.

THINK......

God with his infinite power cast out Lucifer out of heaven made him a derelict. God with just a point of a finger he could have killed him. Abolished him. Even a dead and lost soul was still important to God. As a dead carcass is to a grieving mother leopard and a hunting Lion.

I am not a bible scholar or even in academia; but in my pondering. I am convinced that the manner we display our respect for our relationships and our actions toward difference is key; to the balance we all need to have in life.

Could it be or even suggested that God's purpose for Lucifer was for him to attempt to create chaos upon the earth; so one's soul, heart and mind can appreciate his grace his mercy? Hence, then being led to salvation eternally with him.  To prove our honor, our loyalty our love to him and his kingdom.

The process of only the fittest shall survive. The coach putting athlete through drills to equip him or her for winning or mastering the desired sport.

Could it simply mean that the lioness realizes that at some point she will have cubs and she; also will have to hunt at the risk of putting the tender ones in possible imminent danger.

At some point she may even meet a same familiar, savage peril. As this is their course of life.

In this life; you will have to do what is necessary to survive. In your coarse of surviving make sure on every ground, Your stance, perceptiveness and positioning whether it's triumph or failure that your consideration is greater than your conquest, supremacy or Vanquish.

Be just and humble.
Philippians 2:3-4
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.



Soulfully;

Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me. The song that moved me.

Hey Friends, The other day my dear friend was explaining a situation. Even though my friend was hurting. My Friend had such beautiful faith, such hope and love for God. My friend told me that even in her sadness all that she can find to help was to sing. Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in me. I had never heard the song, But being the hungry worshipper I am; if it speaks of the Beauty of Jesus then I want to know it. I need to sing it. I was amazed by her spirit it takes truly someone of unshakable faith to sing to God in their very season of sadness. She ministered to me.  Her words were powerful but her actions; taught me a valuable lesson about the humility of the lowly gentle Holy Spirit and how even when we are going through he still ministers to your soul to give you comfort. He was moving on her behalf when he place that song in her heart. It was to comfort her in that very moment. Her testimony of how she was getting through not only moved me. As

It's Intercession

Hello Friends, Few years ago I was at a revival service in NYC. I remember that night vividly because that Saturday night the minister located me and prophesy to me. " He said you are going to be a Powerful Intercessor and that when you pray God is going to favor you meaning me with each pray because I am going to live a life of deep devotion to God. At that time I was a baby in Christ.  I didn't even really know who and what was an intercessor. Eventually, I looked into intercession and although It intrigued me; I laugh because at that time I barely knew how to pray. I have always been someone who has a great deal of empathy for others but I felt their pain in silence and hope for the best for them but praying. That's not me or so I thought.  I always looked at those women in church that prayed those lengthy eloquent prayers and hope I would be one of them someday; and at that time in my life The Lord's Prayer was all I knew. That was a joke he didn't mea

How deep is your Love for God

 Hello Friends, This Morning while sitting in my prayer closet, There was a stillness in the atmosphere. In that stillness; I began to feel something I had never felt before. I was feeling all the petitions and cries I made unto God in this tiny room. I was still; In that moment I could count each and every breath I took. I remembered the depths of how many times in intercede for others. I felt my cries unto God. I felt each and every tear. They fell upon me as though they were raindrops upon my shoulders. The tears of spiritual warfare, The tears of repentance, the tears of forgiveness, the tears of sacrifice, the tears of hopelessness, the tears of Joy, the tears of victory, the tears of love, the tears of compassion, the tears uncertainty, the tears of sorrow, the tears of thanksgiving, the tears for mercy, so many tears.  Each tear I cried In the natural was on behalf of those I passionately fought and pleaded to God for. I pleaded for his mercy and for his grace; for hi
