Millennial Kingdom: Animal Harmony

Genesis 9:2 The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the sky; with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given.

When Noah and his family were free of the flood and out of the ark, God made the promise stated above. Animals were instilled with a sense of “fear” and “terror” of humanity. Animals are now meals.

The Hebrew word for “fear” is mowra’. It means: fear, reverence, or terror.

The Hebrew word for “terror” is chath. It means: fear, terror, shattered, or dismayed. (Strong’s Concordance).

Humanity was told they could eat whatever animal they wanted, just make sure there is no blood in the animal that is being consumed. Genesis 9:3-4 Every moving thing that is alive shall be food for you; I give all to you, as I gave the green plant. Only you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood.

What happens when an animal is backed into a corner? It will defend, attack, and bite. The animal will also flee and retreat.

As a result, animals have hostility towards each other. The height of animal fear and terror will occur during the Tribulation. Animals turn on humanity. The fourth ashen or pale green horse of the Apocalypse confirms in Revelation 6:8 I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.

In the Millennial reign of Christ, all of this changes. A new covenant is coming between zoology and humanity. Hosea 2:18 “In that day I will also make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds of the sky and the creeping things of the ground. And I will abolish the bow, the sword and war from the land, and will make them lie down in safety…”

The result will be harmony in the animal kingdom. The hostility between animals ends. Animals stop eating and attacking each other. For examples, lions, bears, and wolves will become herbivores. Isaiah 11:6a, 7 And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together…The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox.

Isaiah 65:25a The wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox…

The hostility between humanity and animals ends. Would you let your child play near snakes? One of these days, it will be okay. Isaiah 11:8 The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.

Every animal gets a reprieve…except one, the snake.

Isaiah 11:8 Animal Peace Treaty? Yes…

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 2, 2014 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 11:8 And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little boy will lead them. Also the cow and the bear will graze, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.

Previously, the relationship between animals was discussed in the verse. In a nutshell, there will be harmony among and between the animals in the future. The relationship of predator and prey will be removed. What about the relationship between animals and humanity? There are multiple verses that speak to this relationship as well.

Prior to the flood, animals and humanity had a peaceful coexistence. But after Noah’s global flood, things changed. God informs Noah and the survivors of the flood they can now eat meat. From this point forward, animals are a food source. Hostility between humanity and zoology had been initiated. Genesis 9:2 “The fear of you and the terror of you will be on every beast of the earth and on every bird of the sky; with everything that creeps on the ground, and all the fish of the sea, into your hand they are given.

The Bible says there will come a time when humanity and animal angst will end. A harmonious relationship with zoology will be restored as originally intended. PETA will rejoice! This concept of peace with animals is noted in multiple places. God makes a peace treaty or covenant with the animals.

Hosea 2:18 “In that day I will also make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds of the sky and the creeping things of the ground. And I will abolish the bow, the sword and war from the land, and will make them lie down in safety…”

Job 5:22-23 “You will laugh at violence and famine, and you will not be afraid of wild beasts. For you will be in league with the stones of the field, and the beasts of the field will be at peace with you…”

Ezekiel 34:25 “I will make a covenant of peace with them and eliminate harmful beasts from the land so that they may live securely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods…”

Dr. Dolittle, the Dog Whisperer on the Animal Planet, or the cat psychologist from “My Cat from Hell” have nothing on God. Some of these folks in today’s world (March 2014) will be looking for a new job once this covenant is enforced. There will no longer be a “cat from hell”. Animal therapists will not be necessary.

Isaiah 11:6 The Curse is Reversed, Part 1

Posted in Creation, Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2014 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 11:6-8 And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little boy will lead them. Also the cow and the bear will graze, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.

Is this a picture of the animal kingdom in today’s world, February 2014? Look at the pairs of animals: wolf and lamb; leopard and goat, lion and cow. Currently wolves, leopards, and lions are carnivores and predators. Lambs, goats, and cows are herbivores. They are also a meal and prey. I have seen the documentaries on the National Geographic cable channel, I know how these stories end.

Children of all ages, a nursing baby (ages 0-2), a weaned child (ages 2-4), and a small boy (ages 5 plus) are noted in the original Hebrew language. Young children of all ages are represented in these verses. In verse 6, the Hebrew term is na’ar. It means a boy, lad, or youth. In verse 8, the “nursing child” is the Hebrew term yanaq. It is as translated, a nursing infant. The “weaned child” in the Hebrew is gamal. (definitions per Strong’s Concordance). The text states these young children are safely playing around poisonous snake dens. The cobra and the viper are poisonous snakes. I have a nonpoisonous snake that lives under my front porch. I would love to kill it. Apparently, my current attitude would not exist in a future time.

Look at the living conditions. These animals are living together. Prey are living fearlessly with predators. Today, would a goat take a nap with a leopard? A 2-4 year old child is running around with these animals. Would parents allow their children to do this? The lion is described as an herbivore and eating grass, not exactly the image we have of a lion in February of 2014.

This is not the only place where these conditions are promised. Isaiah 65:25 verifies the same harmonious conditions. “The wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox…”

Imagine the impact on animal life with the curse removed. Reproduction in animal life will result in an explosion of population. Radical behavior changes are coming to the animal kingdom.
