Every so often we receive evidence (proof) that the peaceable kingdom of Isaiah's prophecy (11:6-9) can exist in the here and now, as the following photos show us, if we really want it to come to pass.
6 And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the kid,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little boy will lead them.
7 Also the cow and the bear will graze;
Their young will lie down together;
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.
8 And the nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den.
9 They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD
As the waters cover the sea.
This Ranger is assigned to prevent poaching around the wildlife refuge area of Lanseria, South Africa. The way these animals interact with him is absolutely stunning! The lions seem to know he is there to protect them. His charm works with hyenas and lions alike. Hyenas are usually vicious. Also, check out the pictures taken in the river.
