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

Frequently Asked Questions

Can't this be used to breed more Phariseeism? After all, aren't these "just" animals?

Anything can be taken to the twin extremes of either licience or Pharisaical judgmentalism that divides and destroys. The Hosea 2:18 Covenant must be seen as one of the, if not the, most unselfish covenants that God has ever asked us to participate in. It bids us to minister the same everlasting compassions that have been ministered to us to those who've truly been the "least" in our estimation of God's creation. It bids us to share the healing we've received and to speak "peace" to those who've known the most agitation and uncertainty. It tells us to look at God, the Master Potter, and see what He will do and to expect Him to pour out His Spirit upon all flesh! Who among us can claim to be anything without the Holy Spirit of God poured upon our flesh? The Hosea 2:18 Covenant calls us to the depths of God's compassion and infinite grace! Remember that Nimrod, Esau, and Balaam were all called wicked by our Lord. Nimrod and Esau were hunters and though little is said, in Scripture, of the day to day life of Balaam, one particular incident of animal cruelty on his part has been immortalized by both holy testaments!
