1 Pet. 4:1-2 π 1 Pet. 5:8-9

Peter wrote,

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. ( 1 Pet. 5:8-9; top )

What can we glean from this description?

But there is something else here as well. In this passage, the devil is said to be a roaring male lion. In nature, the alpha-prime male lion walks around, roaring, making his presence known and being everything but a stalker of prey. Why? Because the male lion’s pride, his cadre of female lionesses and subservient male lions, is lurking all around him waiting for some animal to remain too close or be too weak to escape their subtle, quiet stalkings and sudden, vicious assaults. The alpha-prime male lion has only one job: to distract the prey’s attention away from the real threat. The real threat is the pride, the lesser males and the lionesses.
