And the wolf will dwell with the lamb

A glimpse of the coming 1,000-year kingdom of Christ on Earth:

Isaiah 11:6-9

Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat;
The calf and the young lion shall browse together,
with a little child to guide them.
The cow and the bear shall graze,
together their young shall lie down;
the lion shall eat hay like the ox.
The baby shall play by the viper’s den,
and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair.
They shall not harm or destroy on all my holy mountain;
for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD,
as water covers the sea.

~Eowyn

  5. For many reasons, this passage from Isaiah’s been a longtime favourite of mine. I regard Isaiah as the greatest poet in the Bible after Jeshua, the Greatest by all measures.

    This is also a crucial passage for Friends, as it depicts ‘the Peaceable Kingdom’ [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Hicks] we believe is the result of Christian belief and practice.

    I strongly recommend you go inside the ‘Settings’ of the video, change its speed to .75, and it will be much more clear & observable. Many thanks for this delightful series of insights!
