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

Why would God have allowed such cruelty towards animals over the last several thousand years, if indeed it can be called cruelty?

Mankind has generally been held responsible, for a limited time, for what happens on this planet. If man has left some area in the hands of death without seeking the intervention of God in that area, then it's been left to both death and to future generations to redress the issues in question, of whatever sort they've been. The lack of a mediator between God and man was the exact same situation between God and animals. And then when Jesus Christ came in the fullness of time, few men over the centuries have known enough of Scripture and of the heart of God to hold Jesus's feet to the fire, so to speak, where the Hosea 2:18 covenant is concerned. God said that His people face destruction in their areas of their lack of knowledge, or because when God would speak, the people would reject knowledge. People have had a lack of knowledge of the heart of God towards animals or they've rejected that knowledge because of the hardness of their hearts and the lusts of their flesh for animal flesh. Man's cruelty for several generations, in the Western World, where the human slavery issue is concerned is proof positive that something can be allowed for a season to become more and more of a wicked situation until righteous hearts are pricked by God's love, wisdom, and unfolding plans for the ages. One of the purposes in letting it happen is to expose man's wickedness in that area so that God can address that next level of human depravity in their hearts as He deals with His children as the eons of time pass.
