Animal Gospel

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea. ~Isaiah 11:9

Living a More Consistent Gospel to Every Creature
By: Martin Cisneros

It's time to stop mentally compartmentalizing our lives, our joys, our callings, and current occupations. The Bible is one book with seemingly 66 chapters. It is not okay to act on the Word where embracing His Lordship and receiving one's empowering blessing is concerned, but then to leave mercy, justice, and faith uncultivated where animals are concerned, or where the universal restoration of all of mankind is concerned.

It is time to be ready at all times to teach it all, to be as ready to minister to animals and to the whole universe as one is daily in the habit of staying ready to minister to saint and sinner alike where human beings are concerned. 2Timothy 3:16-17 says:

16 All scripture is inspired by God, and is beneficial for teaching, for exposure, for correction, for discipline in righteousness,
17 that the man of God may be equipped, fitted out for every good act.

And it says in 2Corinthians 9:8: Now God is able to lavish all grace on you, that, having all contentment in everything always, you may be superabounding in every good work,

It is the will of God for you to be superabounding in every good work. That doesn't just relate to those matters that close Matthew 25 and that close James chapter 1. Those aren't the only ways in which you annually visit the King, as it says in Zechariah 14:16-21. No, you are as much responsible for the whole Creation and this Hosea 2:18 Covenant as I am.

Romans 8:19-22 isn't just speaking of me that the whole Creation is groaning for. The whole Creation is groaning for each and every single one of us that are seated with Christ in heavenly places, as it says in Ephesians 2:6. The whole Creation is groaning for us to walk by faith and not by sight, according to 2Corinthians 5:7 and to begin to call things that be not as though they were, according to Romans 4:17, and relieve this Creation of all that's caused it to groan and to relieve this Creation of all of it's groans, so that sorrow and sighing flee from it.

Ezekiel 38:19-20 says they're supposed to shake at His Presence, but 1John 2:20, 27, Romans 8:9, and Ephesians 1:13 say that He's in us. Animals and the carnal man are supposed to be shaking in our Presence. They are supposed to be shaking at His goodness through us, according to Jeremiah 33:9 because we're the Malachi 3:1 messengers of the Hosea 2:18 Covenant that says to both man and animals, as His 2Corinthians 5:20 Ambassadors:

“For this is like the waters of Noah to Me; For as I have sworn That the waters of Noah would no longer cover the earth, So have I sworn That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you. For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed (Ezekiel 38:19-20), But My kindness shall not depart from you (therefore, we're vegans), Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,” Says the LORD, who has mercy on you...No weapon formed against you shall prosper... (Isaiah 54:9-10, 17a)

See also Hosea 2:18 and Genesis 9:9-10, 12, 15-17 on my right to read this chapter of Isaiah as being an Isaiah 11:6-9 promise to the animals as well as to people. Isaiah 54 is as much the New Covenant to animals, as it is to mankind, according to Jeremiah 31:27-28, and the reality that His Genesis 9 Covenant that He's contrasting this with, was likewise with the animals.

Our message is to be one for all of Creation, because the ages we're in, now demand it. And our lives must be that of consistent athletes towards this purpose, according to 1Corinthians 9:24-27. We must be temperate in all things, with this clearly defined objective in view: to be 2Timothy 2 vessels of honour.

Please stop and read all of 2Timothy 2 very, very carefully, at least 5 times aloud, keeping in mind the subject that we are on of living a more consistent Gospel to every Creature (Mark 16:15). I've never heard a sermon, out of countless sermons I've heard over the years, tying Mark 16:18 with Isaiah 11:8. But these are the signs, the signs mentioned in Mark 16:15-20, that are to accompany this particular message that I am sharing with you. Literally, these signs will follow those that believe....they'll change the atmosphere absolutely everywhere they go until the Blessing has abounded to the place where the Eden of God, spoken of in Isaiah 51, is RESTORED.

Yes, it's a message of the Lordship of Jesus Christ. But we've not had enough emphasis on what we're to be repenting to. Repentance, [in the Scriptures,] is as much a going to, as a departing from. We are restored through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to Romans 5 and 2Corinthians 8:9. We are not supposed to be living like fallen creatures with having our minds conditioned to the eon that is now passing away. No, our lives are hid with Christ in God, and God is hid in Isaiah 11:6-9.

He is our peace, according to Ephesians 2:14. Not just the peace of human beings, according to Jeremiah 31:27-28. He, within us, is to be the glory revealed to all of Creation that births the entire Creation into the liberties of the children of God, according to Romans 8:21.

How do we preach a Gospel to all of Creation? How do we preach to animals? With our kind words? Not just with our kind words, but with our entire cruelty-free actions as well. I am so tired of hearing about people's liberties to eat flesh because they are Christians who seek their diets to be justified by the Mosaic Law.

You know what? Give it a rest on the "liberties" card if your supposed liberties aren't setting me free, setting your neighbors free, and setting free absolutely all of Creation! Where are our priorities if we're living to ourselves, aren't seeking first the Kingdom of God, which is Isaiah 11:6-9, according to Mark 4:30-32?

Be protective of the anointing, your union and fellowship with the anointing, and guard the holy deposit in you with your life. Don't allow anyone else to magnify your flesh, to magnify your flesh in your own eyes, or to magnify your flesh in their own eyes. The Word must be first priority and final authority in every area of your life. Don't allow things, times, and seasons into your life that aren't bi-products of the Word. Let's look at a few Scriptures regarding this:

21 Now He Who is confirming us together with you in Christ, and anoints us, is God,
22 Who also seals us and is giving the earnest of the spirit in our hearts. (2Corinthians 1:21-22)

20 And you have an anointing from the Holy One... (1John 2:20)

I am thanking my God always...so that the fellowship of your faith may become operative in the realization of every good thing which is in us for Christ Jesus. (Philemon 1:4, 6)

15 For all is because of you, that the grace... should be superabounding in thanksgiving... (2Corinthians 4:15)

11 being enriched in everything, for all the generosity, which is...superabounding also through much thanksgiving to God, (2Corinthians 9:11, 12)

As, then, you accepted Christ Jesus, the Lord, be walking in Him...according as you were taught, superabounding...with thanksgiving. (Colossians 2:6, 7)

When you were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, He intended for you to grow up in the Written Word of God in all things, to put off the old man and put on the young. You were called and He had every intention for you to be equipped for every good work towards each Creature in all of Creation.

Don't allow distractions. If someone's warring with you, learn to pull the kind of strategic retreat that General George Washington would accomplish. Your priorities shouldn't be to prove anything to anyone. Your priorities should be to become equipped for every good work through the Written Word and God's grace.

It's only by developing your vision, temperance, self-control, patience, gentleness, and explosive energy on the Written Word of God that you are going to be of any healing, rescuing, and prospering benefit to every creature in all of Creation. Again, it says in 2Corinthians 9:8 and 2Timothy 3:16-17:

8 Now God is able to lavish all grace on you, that, having all contentment in everything always, you may be superabounding in every good work,

16 All scripture is inspired by God, and is beneficial for teaching, for exposure, for correction, for discipline in righteousness,
17 that the man of God may be equipped, fitted out for every good act.

Our lives are to be lives, witnesses, living sacrifices, examples, comforters, and deliverers for each and every Creature. Veganism is such a small part of that. An Isaiah 58 veganism is very important, but without the superabounding grace of God being lavished on you and all around you and through you onto all things for every creature, you'll stand out as different, be legalistic, and when grief from the suffering you see in the world has finished drowning you, you were not much more helpful to every creature than a person that was a carnivore.

You have to get to where each and every single thing that you do at all times is in order to always have the best, so that you can always give your best to every Scripture, and on the behalf of every Scripture to every single Creature in the universe. Our lives are to be lived to bring the whole Creation into the liberties of the children of God, according to Romans 8:21.

Everything has to be about everything. You can't allow anything to bottleneck in your life to where it's just self-serving. You are supposed to have and to be the very best. Yes, you can't take care of everything if you are drowning in your own debts, needs, and insufficient funds. In that shape, you're useless; absolutely useless to God and to all of Creation.

I am talking about an elevated standard of living; a prosperity Gospel, most definitely. But if we stop at caring for ourselves, our own families, Churches, and other public ministries, and neglect the least of these, His Jeremiah 31:27-28 brethren, then your whole life was wasted if it wasn't for all life everywhere.

I am not implying you couldn't have found contentment and a full life, but what has your life really mattered to all life everywhere? And if it hasn't, then how again have you participated in the divine nature, escaped the corruption in the world through lust, and grown towards conformity with the image of God's dear Son? How can He call you brother, again, and feel no shame in doing so?

Everything must be about the renewal of our minds, the worship of God, caring for one another, and having an emerging hero complex where all life everywhere is concerned. Otherwise, Jesus is a way rather than THE way. However, if our seating with Christ in heavenly places is GENUINELY an exclusive seating at the right hand of God, then it's our Scriptural duty to be preoccupied with the Written Word that is preoccupied with everything and upholding all things!

Our message is a message for all of Creation. It can't be anything less. To be humane isn't synonymous with being pagan!

All of life everywhere must be healed and there aren't other heaven-sent agents of that healing and resurrection of all of life, except for Bible-believing Christians who acknowledge their place as joint-heirs with Christ Jesus in mediating between God and all things. Lord Jesus is the only mediator between God and man, but we do have seating at His right hand in the behalf of all other life.

So many Scriptures call these animals Covenant-heirs, and the Scriptures cannot be broken. If we love much, because we've been forgiven much, then our hands are helping hands and healing hands for all of Creation. These signs will follow those who believe, according to Mark 16:18 and it mentions Isaiah 11:8 that's coming out of our Isaiah 51 joy, gladness, and thanksgiving.

Reinterpreting Psalm 104:21 through Mark 16:15-20, Isaiah 11:6-9, Romans 8:17, and Ephesians 2:6, as well as other Scriptures, then from a New Covenant “Great Commission” perspective, we'd read Psalm 104:21 that the young lions roar after their prey, seek their food from His joint-heirs, and a little child shall lead them. This is a Great Commission sign that's supposed to follow those that believe, according to Mark 16:18.

Now, in saying this, I'm not using Isaiah 11:8 to justify snake handler Churches up in the mountains somewhere. People going into a religious frenzy with religious music and doing one of those frenzied Pentecostal dances while trying to frighten an animal into subjection isn't the peaceful Kingdom of Isaiah 54:9-10. I am introducing a level of wholeness and symbiosis where all of Creation is concerned that hasn't been elaborated on enough in our Prosperity Gospel circles.

I am talking about the removal of poverty, fear, enmity, and exploitation from the universe on a level that we've had no teaching on in recent centuries. I have to stop right there. What I am seeing right now as I'm writing is so sacred and so close to Appearing that I need everyone to go back over these Scriptures for themselves before we can go further into the world that's being re-birthed right now through the revealing of the Sons of God, as Romans 8:19-21 calls it.
