Isaiah 11:6 in Bible says calves, lions, and bulls will all live together in peace and a little child will lead them. The wolf shall dwell with the lamb in the time of peace to come. During the longed for time of peace will be long life and joy. The wolf and the lamb shall graze together and the lions shall eat straw like ox. Children born and old people will live forever. The calf and the lion will graze together as the little child will lead them. This great peace and quiet under Jesus’ Government in context of Isaiah 11:6 is possible by Jesus’ Gospel ministry achievement as the Messiah. In the painting above the wolf is a bird in the background as the Holy Spirit was seen the form of a dove during baptism of Jesus. Bible says look at the birds of the air, they neither sow, reap or gather into barns yet your heavenly Father God feeds them. Are you not of more value than the birds. So do not worry about tomorrow for your future is in Christ in God. In nature birds often are seen hovering around other animals. As God is a bird watcher so creates many varieties in Bible playing active roles in God’s plans. Adam named and lived with Eve safely with these animals in the garden of Eden. A raven bird fed Elijah in desert by the river in 1 Kings 17 during a famine. God uses birds to help people in many ways to work as designed. The Bible in Matthew 3:17, God confirmed Jesus is the Son of God well pleasing and loved. God’s Voice from heaven said, This is My Beloved Son in whom I AM well pleased during Baptism of Jesus the heaven opened, Spirit of God descended like a dove. Bible says, “Consider the birds of the air they do not toil or work but eat fed by God and more beautifully clothed than Solomon in all His Glory. In Genesis 8:8-11 Noah sent a dove to see the water receded from the earth. The dove came to him toward evening and in her beak was an olive branch the symbol of peace restoration of earth. So Noah built altar to LORD Yahweh and sacrificed burnt offering of animals and birds approved by God in Genesis 8:20. Noah’s family with children lived safely among the dangerous animals in an ark and on dry land after rain stops so flood ceased settled in Turkey where the ark is found on Mount Ararat. So Bible says as it was in the days of Noah so shall be the coming of the Son of God Jesus. And some will be eating, drinking, partying as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah till the flood and fire rained to destroy all except Noah and Lot’s family. So God is warning all people to get ready for the changes taking place on earth globally. A Dutch and Americans have built exact accurate replica of Noah’s Ark Museum and Ark tours the world seen by many.God cares even more about humans and birds are also prominent in eschatology scavengers of the flesh in Revelation 19-15-19, infest ruins of cities laid waste by wrath of God. Leviticus 11:13 says some birds are not to be eaten so are detested among the birds. They are abhorrent as the eagle, vulture and bat are unclean. The Bible refers to birds of the air or the heavens teach important lessons about life in relationship with God. Abraham had to drive away birds from covenant sacrifice. The dove is a sign of peace as seen after Noah’s flood. Matthew 3:17, says God confirmed Jesus is the Son of God. God’s Voice from heaven Said, This is My Beloved Son in whom I AM well pleased during the Baptism of Jesus. The heavens opened and the Spirit of God descended like a dove. The Angels with wings sometimes can seem like a bird to some people if in the far distance. Earth realm is surrounded by Heavenly hosts of armies angels who reveal themselves to some people in that areas or vicinity. Many animals from Noah’s Ark live in the New Jerusalem peacefully alongside human beings including the wolves. New Covenant of a genuine real peace will truly happen so all formerly hostile predator enemies become best friends as war ceases. So there will be no more killing wars as swords are put back into plowshares. Swords to plough shares or swords to plowshares concept of armies pruning hooks means nations shall not lift up sword against other nation or learn war anymore says Bible in Isaiah 2:4. After Armageddon no more war as God is for eternal perfect peace on the earth as it was in the beginning in Eden after creation. So nations shall not lift sword against a nation anymore or shall they learn war tactics anymore.
In Revelation 13, predator animals form alliance beast of seven heads with ten horns, the same attributes as little horn of Daniel 7. John sees vision of 2 beasts, one is rising from the sea and the other beast from the earth. These beasts are joined as antiChrist system of nations with the dragon serpent devil fighting against God’s plan to establish Jesus real peace on earth. The beasts use ruthless evil power and deceptive authority to buy and sell with the mark of the beast to control people without the Mark of Christ not Sealed by God for protection. The beast nations fight Kingdom of God and kill many people but is defeated by God’s Son Yeshua Messiah who judges and condemns them to death by sword from His mouth. So the changes taking place on earth now will clear out death and evil forever. After that Micah 4:3, says the nations will not take up sword against other nations or train for war anymore. Pruning hooks means no wars existing between the nations seems too good to be true in the midstof so many battles raging all over the world. Some trust in chariots and horses for defence of the world so cannot believe that not lifting up sword against other nations is possible or can happen. Yet is absolutely true because only Yeshua Messiah can do so as able to achieve perfect peace as the Prince of Peace. Some wars bring rest and peace but not complete peace globally. These word pictures of Christ paint Him, hope of Israel the One who to be born is a Child growing up to take up God’s Appointed rulership. Reign of Christ begins in Armageddon war on earth by sheep and goat nations ushering in His physical return to earth permanently then peace. So, no more sorrow, weeping, crying, pain, grief or tears but pure eternal joy of the reunion with loved ones in Christ. Jesus Christ Lion of Tribe of Judah and root of David comes to fight to eliminate all spiritual and physical wolves against God, Israel and grafted Gentiles. A lion or wolf is an enemy that tears up animals or people. As King David fought lions and bears with bare hands to protect sheep from enemies, so Jesus, Seed of David and the Lion of Judah kills all enemies fighting God’s sheep for eternal peace and rest.
Jesus is calling all people to follow Him today as he called the 12 apostles while walking beside the sea of Galilee. Jesus saw Simon and brother Andrew casting a net into the lake as fishermen. ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you to fish for people says Mark 1:16-17. So put your hope, trust and confidence in God personally to understand events taking place now leading to the future concerns all people on earth. God is taking back power from all enemies to recreate the perfect world originally as God planned. The persecutions and the changes happening are end time birth pangs Jesus warned about. Those in God in Christ study eschatology to know and better understand the unfolding world events. Hold onto God and put on whole armour of God to protect from enemies. The great tribulation taking place gets worse before it gets better for a perfect peace. Lions, lambs, children adults will dwell together forever in Jesus Name.
