His mouth as the mouth of a lion (Revelation 13:2)


And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Revelation 13:2 - King James



⚪ The strong mouth of the papacy

Rev. 13 [...]
And his mouth as the mouth of [a lion] LIONS. — "Babylon was celebrated for its splendor and pride—the Lion the king or ruler of all beasts — so Papacy had a mouth of this sort, i. e., it claimed to be the kingdom over all kingdoms by Divine right, the kingdom of God, which was to break in pieces and consume all others — a strong mouth." — Z/79-12-2.

⚫ Satan's organization is bold-faced, greedy, brazen-faced, sly, cunning, cruel and violent

"And his mouth as the mouth of a lion," that is to say, with powerful jaw teeth to bite and crush and devour. (Joel 1:6; Hos. 13:8) Satan's organization, like a lion, is bold-faced and greedy, and makes a terrifying noise. All these symbols exactly fit Satan's brazen-faced, greedy, sly, cunning, cruel and violent organization. This description shows also that the "wild beast" is not a hear or a leopard or a lion, but is a monstrosity, which symbolizes Satan's cruel and wicked organization.
