Animals have been waiting for centuries to be set free from suffering:

"For creation awaits with eager expectation the revelation of the children of God; for creation was made subject to futility, not of its own accord but because of the one who subjected it, in hope that creation itself would be set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that all creation is groaning in labor pains even until now."
-Romans 8:19-22

Jesus,creatures,(Jesus, the Church and God's Creatures) "Happy are the merciful for they will obtain Mercy" - Jesus. Now for our announcements: We will be having our picnic, please bring your choice of meat. We will supply ice cream. Next week is our breakfast social eith eggs, bacon and ham. The following week is our beefsteak/chicken fundraising dinner. Come and enjoy!! We will be using the profits for our building fund and of course to help people in their spiritual and physical lives. The circus trip is being planned for next month.
(Bull-1) God can't be pleased with this 'sport'. This violent, disgusting treatment of God's creatures in the name of 'tradition' is not of God - it is Satanic as any other blood sport - cock fighting, dog fighting, etc.

"...the destruction of the beasts shall terrify you." Hab. 2:17b

"For every animal of the forest is mine, beasts by the thousands on my mountains. I know every bird of the heavens; the creatures of the field belong to me." Psalm 50:10-11

(Calf-1 Calves are stolen from their mothers who cry for each other for days. They live in crowded areas where they can not move. They are so weak because people like soft muscle to eat. They can not stand or walk at auctions or during transportation. They are often thrown and prodded with electric prods. These are God's creatures who I'm sure is not happy with how we treat these helpless creatures. It is getting worse as time passes for all cattle, including dairy cows, sheep, lambs, and all animals because we allow it and support the animal food industry.

"Lying upon beds of ivory, stretched comfortably on their couches, They eat lambs taken from the flock, and calves from the stall!"
-Amos 6:4

(Cat-1"For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, ... all things were created through him and for him."
-Col. 1:16

(Chickens-1) The egg laying industry abuses hens to produce eggs for our recipes and plates and for celebrating Jesus' resurrection -- Easter. Baby bunnies, chicks, ducks, etc. are also stolen from their parents, to sell to celebrate 'new life'. Many are turned into the local shelter or left to die on their own. Eggs are not good for our bodies (and our souls) when bought from tortured hens whose beaks are seared off, crammed in tiny cages, given hormones, starved, and deprived from sun, grass, roosting and living the life they were created to live. They cannot care for the eggs they are forced to produce and then stolen from them. 'Free range' chickens are also deprived from living normal lives crammed in sheds with no regard for their well-being. How can we thank God and bless these innocent animals before eating them and their eggs??

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how many times I yearned to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings,..." Luke 13:34

(Dog - 1"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord."
-Psalm 150:6

(Elephant - 1) Circuses are extremely cruel to exotic animals. No matter how good they look for the public, there is a very dark side to their life. They are taken from their mothers to be 'trained' which involves breaking their spirit, beatings, stabbings with the bullhook, chaining and transporting around the country. Many develop diseases are are rented out to 'perform'. They also develop neurosis or may try to escape ending in being shot. These social creatures have feelings and emotions as other animals have.

"...the heart of the wicked is merciless."
-Prov. 12:10b

(Fish 1"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord."
-Psalm 150:6

(Fish 2"As he was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed him"
-Mt. 4:18-20

James and John also left fishing to follow Jesus.

(Fish 3"You dolphins and all water creatures, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever."
-Daniel 3:79

(Fur-1) The fur industry breeds, cages and traps millions perhaps billions of animals for greed and vanity.

"Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy." Mt. 5:7

(Monkey-1) Research using animals is big business. God is the center of the universe, not people. God gave us dominion over His creatures, meaning to care for them--to be good stewards of them. We are to be their servants. We will be held accountable someday, unless we repent. One thing we can do is not to buy products that test on animals and not to give to charities that use animals for research. Check out PCRM.org.

"Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account." Hebrews 4:13

(Pig-1) Pigs suffer all their lives so we can have meat such as 'bacon', 'ham' and 'pork'. God has compassion for them and we should also. They are factory farmed and suffer their entire lives being treated as machinery and objects. Their tails are cut off, live in tiny crates, transported in crowded trucks, and hung upside down in the slaughter houses as most animals are. Some do not die quickly and go through the assembly line alive.

"The Lord is good to all, compassionate to every creature." Psalm 145:9

(Turkey-1) Turkeys are used to give thanks during Thanksgiving and to celebrate 'life' during Christmas and Easter, but animals and God are waiting for us to set them free. Let's not forget that Jesus lived with animals as a baby and died for all of creation.

"For in him all the fullness was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile all things for him, making peace by the blood of his cross..." Col. 1:19-20

 
 

There are other animal issues not shown here that can be read about in our article section.

God does care for every animal that is shot, maimed, transported, and slaughtered. He cares for lobsters and crabs that are boiled alive, others that are caught in traps, caged, burned, ridden on in rodeos, shot with electric prods and roped jerking their necks for 'fun'. He cares for the ducks that live in boxes to have rods rammed down their throats for foie gras, for fish who swallow hooks and are left to die, those that are speared and the whales that are blown-up. He cares for the animals that are kicked, chained, whipped, starved, stolen from their parents, sold in pet shops. He cares for the mice, and all animals. Although 'mankind' does not believe in giving all animals the right to live as they were created to live, God gave them the right to live stress free lives and someday we will all give an account to their Creator.

If God lives in us, then it is our duty to stop the violence!

"The Lord is good to all, compassionate to every creature." Psalm 145:9

"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." Psalm 150:6

Your Comments are Welcome

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all  He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
