The logo of Lamb & Lion Ministries displays the lamb and lion living peaceably together. Many people believe this symbolism comes from a verse in the Bible that says the lamb and lion will lie down together during the Millennium, but that is not true. First, there is no such verse. Yes, you heard me correctly — there is no such verse!
What then does the symbolism of the lamb and lion stand for? Well, I will tell you tomorrow. Today, as we start off a new year studying Bible prophecy together, I want to introduce you to the ministry that sponsors the articles on The Christ in Prophecy Journal — Lamb & Lion Ministries.
Lamb & Lion Ministries is a non-denominational, independent ministry. That means we are not affiliated with any particular church or denomination. Our purpose is not to convert people to any particular group, but rather, our purpose is to lift up Jesus as the only hope for this world and to proclaim that we are living in the season of His return to this earth.
Our ministry is controlled by a board of 22 trustees who come from a great variety of churches and denominations. What binds them together is faith in Jesus and a conviction that the signs of the time point to His soon return.
Because we are non-denominational, we go to a great variety of churches to speak and receive financial support from many different types of churches for which we are very thankful.
We specialize in the teaching of Bible prophecy with an emphasis on the Second Coming prophecies because we believe that the signs of the times clearly indicate that we are living in the season of the Lord's return.
We proclaim our message through a variety of methods. Our major outreach is our television program called Christ in Prophecy. It is available in millions of homes worldwide through a variety of Christian television networks, as well as online on our website on the Programs page and on the social network Tangle. We also audio podcast the show on iTunes via RSS.
Another method to proclaim our message is through our website at lamblion.com. There you will find a great variety of materials concerning every aspect of Bible prophecy. You can also use the website to send in questions to us. You see we have a full-time Web Minister by the name of Nathan Jones. He will personally respond to your questions there and through the comments section of our blog The Christ in Prophecy Journal and Facebook group.
Another means of outreach that we use is our bimonthly magazine called the Lamplighter. It is 20 pages long and each edition focuses on some major issue of Bible prophecy. You can arrange through our website to receive the magazine either electronically or by regular mail. We also produce many teaching videos and study materials like books and study guides. Again, you will find detailed information about many of these on our website and on our online Bible Prophecy Resource Center.
And now, let me conclude the introductions with a special word to any person who might be reading this who has never received Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Politicians and philosophers do not have the answers to the world's problems. The only hope for this world and for you is Jesus of Nazareth — the Son of God who came to this earth to die for your sins and mine. Your sins have separated you from God. Your only hope for reconciliation and life everlasting is to put your faith in God's son Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Salvation is a free gift of God's grace through faith in Jesus. There is nothing that you can do it earn it. But, you much reach out and you must receive it in faith. To do that I urge you to pray a simple prayer like this one:
"Dear Heavenly Father, I confess to you that I am a sinner and that I need a Savior. I repent of my sins and reach out to your son Jesus in faith accepting Him as my Lord and Savior. Forgive me, Father, and empower me through your Holy Spirit to live the rest of my life for you. In Jesus' name, amen."
If you prayed that prayer with me, please seek out a Bible-believing and Christ-exalting church where you can make a public profession of your faith and manifest that faith in Christian baptism.
