This time, the lions save the Christians

The chief of a Christian ministry that works underground because of its outreach into Muslim-dominant communities in the Middle East is reporting a startling claim – his rescue from Islamic “militants” by a pride of lions.

Pack lions save Christians


High Plains Drifter directed me to another, related story.  I promise it’s not ‘boaring.’

Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say …

Wild boars overrun Islamic State position, kill 3 militants

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,
    or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;
or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,
    or let the fish in the sea inform you.
Which of all these does not know
    that the hand of the Lord has done this?  Job 12:7-9

    1. Wow. No, I hadn’t heard about the wild boars attacking the Islamic militants. Thanks so much for sharing that with me. I’m going to put it at the bottom of my post.
      All the best, Jo

    1. Or, this won’t be boaring!
      No wonder the Isis fighters don’t like pork 🙂
      I should stop with the jokes. But why do the animals know better than the Mohammedans?

      1. A good, boaring joke is always edifying.

        That is a great scripture from the Book of Job.

        Jesus Christ is Lord over His creation, so why wouldn’t He use the animal kingdom to teach us things or warn us about things. When it comes to earthquake prediction, sometimes people have seen peculiar behavior in certain animals just before the earthquake strikes.

        Also, some animals seem to pick up on good people and bad people. One time I was hitchhiking in Idaho and this guy picked me up. His dog was in the back seat. Just after I sat down in the front, the guy’s dog got up and started licking my face like I was his best friend.

        I said, “Your dog sure is friendly.”

        He said, “No, he knows that you are a good guy. One time I picked up this hitchhiker and I told him he could hang out at my place and get a sandwich. (But my dog was not with me.) We drove up to my house and my dog was waiting on the front porch. The hitchhiker barely got his foot out of the door when my dog lept off of the porch, ran up to the hitchhiker and bit him in the leg. So I said, ‘If my dog doesn’t like you, then I don’t like you, so hit the road!'”

        Another time I was hitchhiking in New Mexico and this van pulled over to give me a ride. It was an older couple; they told me to get in the back of the van. I got in the back of their van with a big, old rottweiler. Immediately the rottweiler came up to me and began licking me all over my face. The older couple looked back and had this surprised look on their faces.

        They said, “We have never seen that before! If our dog likes you, then we like you. You can stay at our place tonight.”

        One time I was hitchhiking in north Texas and I was wondering what direction the Lord wanted me to hitchhike in next. Right then I saw the biggest flock of geese I had ever seen in my life and they were heading south. So I headed south and made it all the way to Brownsville, Texas that night.
