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

How do you interpret the passage that there will be no more sea in the Book of Revelation?

The book of Revelation being primarily concerned with Jerusalem and it's enemies, I would look at that with some geographical limitations. Because God has sworn an eternal covenant with the animals, unless the fish are to evolve or be released into the next stage of their genetic potential, the very clear idea of there being no more sea would be a reference to either the Tiberias/Galilee Sea and/or the Mediteranean Sea. I've heard from a number of Bible prophecy teachers that references to the sea in prophetic Scripture are references to the Mediterranean. And with how large the New Jerusalem is supposed to be, if there were a Mediterranean Sea, it would be underneath the gold streets!

In other words, I do not interpret that comment in the last part of the book of Revelation as necessitating that there would be no more ocean. God is both going to be restoring and enhancing the earth through His transforming and flaming power. The only ugliness to the oceans is the violence that fills them to where the imaginations of most of the life in the ocean is only violent continually. Other than that, the world's ocean is one of the most beautiful things that God ever ever created. Too many people have derived too much pleasure from their contact with the ocean for it to be a thing of the past in the transformed world. However, we can all be assured that if God did replace it with something better that it would be with something BETTER that the mortal mind of man has never yet conceived of!
