Currently, as of August 21, 2010, I am not aware of another human
being, viz., another author, on the planet that has seen the Hosea 2:18
Covenant as the Biblical cornerstone for any consideration of animal
rights, and as the basis upon which we can eagerly and gratefully expect
our heavenly Father to intervene with absolutely all of the power He has
in the behalf of animals.
I've not read deeply and completely any works by any other Christian
authors on this subject of a Biblically consistent and genuine “Good
News” to all animals everywhere. But from my previous skimming of other
Christian authors via online descriptions of their works at amazon.com,
their approach is either to view it as a matter that's consistent with
Biblical ethics, or to speak of it as something eschatological, or to
argue for the consciousness, experience, and souls of these animals,
their importance to Creation and our survival or our stewardship of what
God's given us, or to eulogize the memory of particularly loved animals
and to express certainty to grieving hearts that they'll see their
beloved pets in heaven.
As of today, that's the gist and sum of all that I've seen from other
authors: arguments for God's compassion for animals requiring our
compassion as well if we're truly walking with Him, arguments for them
being living, conscious accountable beings, and arguments for what God
did in Creation and in preserving them through Noah's Flood, and
arguments for what God will someday do for animals, or that at least
we'll see our most loved animal companions in heaven or on the new
I don't dispute that many of the Biblical passages that I cite in
sharing this Animal Gospel are likely cited by many or all of the
Christian authors who have written on this. But though they may work
towards more animal conscious Churches and ministry to those in any kind
of emotional distress over an animal, I've not seen the full conviction
of His Holy Spirit on any other Christian authors about what the Bible
says about animals that we are stepping into an era of a new Book of
Acts in the behalf of animals where we will gleefully see God parting
the waters of the Red Sea in the behalf of animals to free them of
thousands of years of torments.
I don't see them as being freed from having relationships with us, as
is implicit in the messages of many non-Christian animal rights
activists, and neither do I envision a world where animals never do
anything for us and we'd never trespass their worlds; their personal
space. To me, that would simply be a new kind of enmity where we'd
transfer from open hostility and bold, indifferent, and defiant
exploitation to an indifferent distancing ourselves from them. Neither
extreme reflects what's noblest in mankind, nor is either extreme the
intent of God.
I don't believe the Bible teaches that humans and animals will ever
one day thrive as islands unto themselves. But I do believe the general
slave trade will end where animals are stripped from native habitats and
never see their loved ones ever again. In fairness, I do realize that
many species do abandon their young and not in every case are we talking
about the dividing and conquering of families. I do realize that.
I see a world coming where people as a general rule, [for want of a
better word,] are much more parental of animals rather than exploiting
of animals for their diets, clothes, entertainment and other vanities.
My particular Animal Gospel presentation is a Pentecostal message of
deliverance and healing for animals and sanctification and a renewed
mind for human beings. I expect, based on the Scriptures of the Old and
New Testaments, for God's miraculous power to intervene with and without
the direct physical involvement of human beings.
I expect the Word of Faith to be spoken by believers and for animals
to be healed physically and emotionally. I expect such an Outpouring of
God's Prosperity into the lives of those that take their cues from the
Hosea 2:18 Covenant and all related Scriptures, and adopt a vegan
lifestyle, meditate in the Word day and night as diligently over this as
they do all other matters, and for those that'll step out of the boat as
co-deliverers and judges with Christ Jesus on the basis of the Word of
God in the behalf of animals.
I fully expect for trillions of dollars to be raised among Christians
in the generations to come that'll be specifically spent on natural
habitat restoration, and giving the animals back double for all of their
shame. I expect for everlasting joy to come about through our heralding
a complete Gospel of Jesus Christ that includes all of the message of
the Biblical prophets and not just those parts that only relate to
I expect that the Gospel will finally be preached in it's totality,
for Bible schools to begin including courses, including courses on
miracles, where this Hosea 2:18 Covenant is concerned. I believe we will
see billions of vegans on planet earth because the kingdoms of this
world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, according
to Revelation 11:15 and that these are not separate messages, but are
one and the same message!
I am carefully laying a foundation that others will rebuild our world
upon. This message is a message of power and not of ethics, not solely
of compassion, and this isn't about seeing our animals in heaven
someday. I fully expect for animals to be raised from the dead, as
surely as human beings will be if He won't alter His Covenant, according
to Psalm 89:34 and man has no preeminence over the animals according to
Ecclesiastes 3:19, because there is a season for everything; a time for
every purpose under heaven and Romans 8:21 says animals must enter into
the liberties of the children of God!
I expect, in the spirit realm, for the Anointing of God to fall on
the animal butchery and animal exploitation/prostitution industries like
a hammer, (the anointing corrodes and shatters the yoke of bondage
according to Isaiah 10:27,) and for the death grip that unreasonable and
wicked men have had on animals to be shattered from the animals and for
a new level of the fear of the Lord, [which is the beginning of wisdom,]
to come upon mankind through the preaching of this Hosea 2:18 Covenant
together with the preaching of the rest of the Gospel of Christ.
