25 Names of Jesus: {Day 16} Lion of Judah

“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.” Revelation 5:5

Upon His first coming, Jesus is referred to as the Lamb of God, the sacrificial lamb for our sins. Upon His return, He is referred to as the Lion of Judah, the triumphant warrior, a descendant of the tribe of Judah (one of the 12 tribes of Israel, in the same line as King David). Together with His saints, He will defeat Satan and the warriors of darkness for the final time, setting up God's eternal kingdom where He will reign forever on His throne! Oh how I long for that day, when this evil world will be no more!

I hope you are having fun hanging your 25 Names of Jesus advent ornaments and discussing His names with your family! Go here to read the other posts in this series and to download the free printable ornaments if you want to follow along as we countdown to Christmas!

Happy December, friends! It's the most wonderful time of the year! :)
