Genesis 49:9-10, Psalm 72:17

Genesis 49:9-10
Judah, a young lion! You return from the prey my son! Like a lion he stoops and  crouches, and like a lioness, who dares to rouse him? The scepter shall not be taken from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and who has the obedience of the nations.

Psalm 72:17
May His Name endure forever; may His Name be as lasting as the sun. All the races will boast about Him, and He will be blessed by all nations.

My Beloved, You are the young, strong invincible Lion of Judah.  You have conquered and destroyed the prey of evil.  Like a lion You stoop and crouch and You are ready to strike at all who dare to harm the poor, the outcast the weak, those with no voice.  You are the Ruler of the earth and all creation submits to Your rule in loving obedience.

As the psalmist foretold, Your Name endures forever - the sun will not last but the SON will.  All races boast about You and You are blessed by all nations.  Although many in the world wish to deny Your existence by denying You my Beloved, they cannot silence the many, who armed with Your Holy Spirit, are prepared to lay down their lives to proclaim You.
