The lion and the lamb

When will this really become reality? In this life or the next?

This is why I love cartoons by ASBO Jesus.

  1. When will this really become reality? In this life or the next?

    Perhaps we begin to take part in this now, in the ‘in-between’ time. But we move towards seeing this more and more as the mustard seed of the kingdom rule of God grows and the mountain of the house of the Lord becomes the chief mountain in all the earth. But it will all culminate one day upon his return to marry us.

    And since the Isaiah passage carries poetic imagery, perhaps we can see that this ultimately speaks of peace extending from the Prince of Peace and his peacemakers. But I also believe there will be animals in the renewed earth of the age to come.

    I think you have a point here Scott. This is something we don’t usually bring up when we speak of the age to come. I can see animals on the new earth. I wonder what animals will be like when animals return to its original state of righteousness (pre-fall)?
