The Bible tells us that God Protected Daniel while he was in the lion’s den. Now comes word that lions protected several Christians from Islamic extremists.

A pastor who is ministering in the Middle East was reportedly saved by lions who prevented a group of Islamic extremists from attacking him and a group of Christians.

Pastor Paul Ciniraj’s story could have come straight out of the Bible. Pastor Paul detailed the modern-day miracle on his ministry’s website.

He wrote, ”My risen Lord Jesus Christ has saved my life once again and I praise and thank God for His unspeakable grace!”


Before the lions saved him, Pastor Paul had been attacked by another group of Islamic extremists. He escaped and was recovering at the home of a former Muslim who had converted to Christianity. The man’s home was near a forest area.

Pastor Paul led worship services there. On Easter Sunday, while believers gathered to worship, militants attacked them, brandishing weapons.

Pastor Paul wrote, ”We had no idea what to do,” He thought they were about to die.

And then, a lion appeared out of the forest and began to attack one of the militants. The other two militants tried to fight the lion off, but then two more lions appeared. The militants ran away in fear and the lions left Pastor Paul and his group alone.

“Equally astonishing,” Pastor Paul added, “records show no lions are supposed to live in that forest.”
