Lion's Mouth of the Beast




Pamela Ayn Austen


2. The beast I saw was like a leopard, with the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion.  And the dragon gave the beast his power and throne and great authority. 

A lion in Scripture represents the Avenger of Truth.  

The Beast's lion mouth, and the Beast's bronze claws, go hand in hand.  The lion symbolizes the Avenger of Truth, and Bronze symbolizes atonement. 

We see this in the book of Daniel, in which liars went to the king and accused Daniel of transgressing their law, then they demanded atonement by throwing him into the lion's den.  They pretended to be the avengers of truth, and they used the bronze claws of atonement to demand Daniel pay for his crime.  But the real lions, those actually symbolizing the avengers of truth, found no guilt in Daniel, and they found nothing to avenge, so God closed their mouths from hurting him.   


Since the Beast will be of Satan, truth will be turned upside down, and lies will become the "truth" to be avenged, and sinners against the Beast's lies must make atonement for their transgression. 

For instance, if you look at the Democratic Party, Hollywood, and the mass media in America, you'll see the beast's lion mouth roaring.  Donald Trump and his base of voters are being accused, belittled, attacked, and maligned on a vicious scale never seen before against a sitting President. Then, with the bronze claws, the people on the left are demanding that Trump be impeached to atone for his sins.  Whatever benign thing he says, he's accused of racism, and they rush to the media, and to the Congressional floor, to condemn him. 

The Beast is given the mouth of a lion to indicate that the Beast considers itself the Avenger of Truth, the one who judges, condemns, and demands atonement from those not following it. 


The true Avenger or Truth is Jesus, the Lion of Judah.  And the One who makes atonement for our sins is Jesus, who died on the cross for us; and in prophecy, his feet are described as shimmering bronze. 


But Satan is a liar, and he wants his lies to be taken as truth. "The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan. . . with every wicked deception. . ." 2 Thess. 2:9-10
