The wolf will live with the lamb...

Isaiah 11: 6

..and a little child shall lead them.

It's an oft-misquoted scripture, but it is powerful in its implications! I love animals. The only ones I am apt to hunt are the buzzing kind that come out at dusk and drink blood. I believe that they ( not the mosquitoes) possess a lot more intelligence and awareness than most people are willing to credit.

This broken world sees animals, as well as people, in a confrontational mode. What we call the food chain, where certain animals prey upon others for food, is, I would contest, not the way things were supposed to be in this world. Sound familiar? Have you noticed that people prey on weaker people. Power and strength seem to be winning factors... until one takes a look at Jesus. 

We can agree that Jesus is the way mankind was supposed to be. He is the second and successful Adam. He delivered a knock-out punch to Satan, sin and death on the cross, a place where he steadfastly marched toward a death that would be an atonement for all and an eventual restructuring of this sin-dominated world.

He was not of this world. He did create this world. He has done sufficient work to begin a total change in the New Heaven and the New Earth to come. It is inevitable. God has come and broken the curse by being a curse.

So I have absolutely no doubt that the wolf will, in fact, cohabit ate with the lamb, that animals, as well as people, will live in harmony. That there will be sufficient bread for all God'e creatures provided, of course, by God Himself.

Be a part of this! Do not wait for tomorrow. Answer God's call and learn who King Jesus truly is. He waits because His atonement was sufficient for all who answer His beckon.

Praise our God and His precious animals!!!
