Frequently Asked Questions
The answer to this is the same as someone standing by faith for healing and being silly enough to toss their medicines before sufficient faith and knowledge are developed in the written Word of God regarding the part of the atoning work of Christ that relates to their bodies. It takes time with God to know what God would want for the diet of your pets. Feed them what you've always been feeding them, or what they're accustomed to until the wisdom of God has developed in you from this Hosea 2:18 amendment on the New Covenant and between the written Word of God and your being led by the Holy Spirit.
The plan of God is ordained to unfold before you for the diet and exercise lifestyle of your dearly loved animals that are in your life that you directly effect by your actions.
That may all be very well regarding protecting what God's doing in the animals, but I'm the one paying for animal cruelty if I pay for animal derived foods for my pets. Isn't this sorta like killing Peter to feed Paul? How is my continuing to support the animal exploitation industry for the sake of my pets consistent corresponding actions to my faith in God's Word for animal liberation?
First of all, a stand of faith on the covenants of God, [which are the wisdom of God ordained for our lives through the Blood and Mediation ministry of Christ] comprise a situation that is without partiality and without hypocrisy before God according to James chapter 3:17 and 1John 1:7. By taking a stand of faith on the Hosea 2:18 covenant, in the Name of Jesus Christ, you've been translated out of the authority of darkness and translated into the kingdom of God's dear Son where the animals are concerned.
[Again, each covenant of Scripture meets a different set of needs, addresses different identity issues, and requires different levels of sanctification as well as diverse areas and methods of obedience to God.]
Are you standing up for God's provision for the animals or merely for compassionate based politics? Are you doing this for the sake of being seen by men or by your father in heaven? Are you contending for the sanctification of animals from exploitation based the pressure that's on you or based on their Blood bought covenant rights in Christ? Because one's built on the sand and one's built on the Rock.
This is another area where we have to work out our own sanctification with fear and trembling before the Word of God's grace. Sounds like both you and the animals in your life need deliverance from the bondage to futility and corruption and entrance into the glorious liberties of the Sons of God. Renew your mind to what God's said in His word regarding His will for these animals to be in safety, health, and peace with man and one another, worship God for His bountiful gifts towards all life every where and fast the fast of a believer and not the fast of a doubting superstitious pagan til you hear the answer for your particular situation/circumstances from the gracious judgment seat of Christ!
Stop asking for a legalistic Torah, or a Pharisaic tradition, and
look to the Living Vine Who's graciously offered animals shelter under
