The prophesy depicting animal in cooperation with an infant and a little child leading was not referring to animal and a child, See Isaiah 11: 6 to 9, “The Wolf will live with the Lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the Calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little Child will lead them. The Cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat Straw like the Ox. The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young Child put his hand into the viper’s nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on my entire Holy Mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea”. Its showing mankind in deference shields of personalities, some as violent as the lion the Buccaneers, the strong like the Ox as the Sports person and wealthy persons, the clever like the serpent the lawyers, the mob members like the wolf who do not operate independently such as the partisan politician do. The poor, weak and led back persons like the lamb, the ignorant and innocent as a child the naive adult, and the anachronism that violence has suddenly become because of our new understanding from new information made available by the servant of God, the world took a new turn like the last statement said “The earth will be full of the knowledge of the lord as the waters cover the sea” Violence is not a vocation like mankind had it before now; every person knows the limit they can’t exceed in a relationship that point when we can’t kill a human being. The limit when we say a push come to a shove is when an argument comes to a head it is resolved on oath calling on God as witness, when an unstoppable object collides with an unmovable object the result is mutual destruction for both objects, man is not an object, man was created a rational being over and above objects, man is created by the Almighty God who says vengeance is His, so why treat the word of God with levity? By seeking vengeance against our neighbor who may have offended us, at such times we should say God is the greatest and get on with our daily life or seek judicial intervention from the public. Obedience of God’s word is what God call worships not our public display of righteousness. See Romans 12: 19. “Do not take revenge, my friends but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: it is mine to avenge; I will repay, says the Lord”.See Leviticus 19: 18. Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord. See 2nd Corinthians8: 21. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.See Psalm 94: 1 to 3. “O Lord, the God who avenges, O God who avenges, shine forth. Rise up, O judge of the earth; pay back to the proud what they deserve. How long will the wicked, O Lord, how long will the wicked be jubilant?”
Why does mankind look forward to a future with wild beast because of these parodies? A wild beast will remain a wild beast in spite of every attempt at taming her. That is way it’s called a wild beast. Do not go near a wild beast because of these parodies. It’s a fixture of the scriptures literary styles an interplay between prosopopoeia and satire. “I am a God who call things that are not as if they are, and call things that are as if they are not” The scriptures address the servant of God as beast and childlike on different occasion See Psalm 131: 2, “But I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me” See Matthew 18: 3 and 4 “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of God. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of God”. See Jeremiah 4: 7 to 9 “A Lion has come out of his lair; a destroyer of nations has set out. He has left his place to lay waste your land. Your towns will lie in ruins without inhabitant. So put on sackcloth, lament and wail, for the fierce anger of the Lord has not turned away from us. In that day,” declares the Lord, the king and his officers will lose heart, the priests will be horrified, and the prophets will be appalled.” A lamb, “He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a Sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.” Finally God address his servant as a deer; See Psalm 18: 32 and 33. “It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a Deer; He enables me to stand on the heights”. Don’t go near a lion or any unfamiliar beast because of these parodies, except such beast is your meal you can eat with thanks. Don’t attempt to hug a deer, shake a lion or touch a serpent, these animals will feel threatened; you either hunt them for food or put a good distance between them and your family. Do not reach for them as some uninformed persons have done in the past to their peril.
The Day of the Lord: The kingdom of God will not turn out as mankind anticipated it. See Amos 5:18–27. “Woe to you who long for the day of the Lord! Why do you long for the day of the Lord? That day will be darkness, not light. It will be as though a man fled from a lion only to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him. Will not the day of the Lord be darkness, not light- pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness? I hate, I despise your religious feasts; I cannot stand your assemblies. Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Though you bring choice fellowship offerings, I will have no regard for them. Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps. But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never- failing stream! Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the desert, O house of Israel? You have lifted up the shrine of your king, the pedestal of your idols, the star of your god- which you made for yourselves. Therefore I will send you into exile beyond Damascus says the Lord, whose name is Almighty God.”
