The Biblical Principle of ROARING

The Biblical Principle of ROARING

Mark Preissner

One day in the privacy of my car, I felt moved to ROAR in protest over some things my daughters were struggling with. So I roared for them. 

Admittedly, roaring is not natural for me, but alone in the car, I just used the word roar and yelled it as loudly as I could. And it genuinely sounded like a roar. 

When I stopped, I felt tingling all over my body. 

Heaven must have heard that roar because I later learned that my daughter felt her thoughts change at nearly the same time—they transformed from negative unbelief to positive faith.

The Lord Roars in Scripture

The next day I was journaling with the Father. When I asked Him about this experience, He replied, “Yes, Mark—it is a valiant war cry. The enemy shudders. It’s a little like what pulled the walls down at Jericho. We roar as well.”

That surprised me—that the Father roars too. I Googled Scriptures that had roaring in them:

Isaiah 42:13: “The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.” (KJB)

Hosea 11:10: “They will follow the LORD; He will roar like a lion. When He roars, His children will come trembling from the west.” (HCSB)

Revelation 10:3: “Then he cried out in a loud voice like the roar of a lion.” (BSB)

Isaiah 31:4: “Like a lion roaring . . . it is not terrified . . . so the Lord of Hosts will come down to do battle.” (BSB)

Joel 3:16: “The Lord will roar from Zion . . . heaven and earth will tremble.” (BSB)

Amos 1:2: “The Lord roars from Zion and raises His voice.” (BSB)

Jeremiah 25:30: “The Lord shall roar from on high . . . he shall mightily roar upon his habitation.” (KJB)

Later I found a footnote in the Strong’s Concordance that said the Egyptian army took real lions into battle with them to cause fear in the enemy camp.

Roaring Shakes the Enemy’s Camp

The Father explained to me, “You felt all tingly because it [roaring] is a powerful tool that strengthens and emboldens weak vessels.” 

“So roaring strengthens us as well as brings victory?” I asked. 

“Yes, Mark. It shakes the enemy’s camp.” The Lord told me that roaring also shakes the enemy’s grip on those he’s taken prisoner. “It shakes him to the ground as the snake he is.”

Later on I shared this experience at a prayer meeting, and someone suggested we roar in unison. We did—and the roar was deafening! 

We then sang “I Raise a Hallelujah,” which appropriately talks about roaring our praises. My wife, Lisa, is a schoolteacher, and she shared that her kids really get into the song’s roaring! 

The praise of children, silencing the enemies of God (Ps. 8:2). 

Roaring Causes Heaven to Rejoice

The next morning I talked to the Father more about this topic. 

“The roaring last night was pretty cool!” I asked Him what He thought about it.

“Your roars reached heaven and we danced for joy,” He replied. “It pleases us when our children STAND against the enemy. Chains fell last night, not just in your group. Thank you for that!” 

I immediately thought of the Scripture where Jesus rejoiced/danced when He heard how His disciples trashed the enemy. He jumped for joy, which is the Greek meaning of rejoiced in Luke 10:21.

The Father told me, “Yes, you don’t realize how significant this is, and it brings us great joy!” 

“It made my voice box hoarse,” I said.

“Yes, Mark, but you recover quickly! Keep roaring!”

I woke up seeing myself roar and changed into a lion and from my sleep I saw some strange beings coming to attack me then I literally saw myself roar and transformed into a lion. I later became conscious and got up from the bed and opened my Bible and the Lord fixed my eyes on Luke chapter 10 verses 17 to verses 22. And I still was curious then googled only to find your article. This is really powerful to see Jesus Christ the LION OF JUDAH inside us ROAR and DEFEATS the enemy. Praise God Hallelujah.


During the pandemic I told the lord I want to hear from him for the New year, the word that I came to me was roar, I ask Lord roars and he said yes, Roars, when I started to research Roar, I found out that the sea Roars, fire roars, the bear Roars, the lion roars, our mighty God roars. our God is the consuming fire, he is the lion of Juda that will sound the alarm whenever the enemies is approaching his children, God is our protector and our defense. I am now the host of she roars, it is a women’s network a platform for women to have a voice and roars for the lord.


I had a dream, I was asked to answer the call and to Roar, I started shouting at the top of my voice I noticed I was lifted off the ground, I roared in felt power well up inside me and I could fly. I woke up from the dream searching the meaning and found your article. Hallelujah ROAR!!
