Ezekiel 22:27 (a) It was a most unhappy situation that existed when the leaders became beasts to destroy the people over whom they were supposed to rule beneficently. The wicked rulers of Israel were suppressing, robbing and injuring the people whom they should have been protecting and preserving. (See also Zephaniah 3:3).

Matthew 7:15 (a) This animal represents religious leaders of the present day, who pretend to be GOD's servants, but who rob the people of their faith, their peace, and their money.

Matthew 10:16 (a) The Lord knew that His disciples would be subject to persecution wherever they went. The people who prosecuted and sought to execute the servants of the Saviour are described as these wild beasts. (See also Luke 10:3).

Acts 20:29 (a) The wolf is used in this case to represent wicked, cruel leaders who, in the name of Christianity and the Church, will burn, maim, torture, kill and seek to destroy GOD's people and GOD's testimony. History reveals that this is the course pursued by the great apostate church.
