When do factors in this life make you feel unsafe? Which injustices make you angry? What experiences cause you to yearn for a world where hurt is no longer tolerated, where danger has no place, and where evil no longer destroys?
That time, that experience, that place is coming. The time of unsafety, the place of hurt, the environment of destruction will be no more:
In that day the wolf and the lamb will live together;
the leopard will lie down with the baby goat.
The calf and the yearling will be safe with the lion,
and a little child will lead them all.
The cow will graze near the bear.
The cub and the calf will lie down together.
The lion will eat hay like a cow.
The baby will play safely near the hole of a cobra.
Yes, a little child will put its hand in a nest of deadly snakes without harm.
Nothing will hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain,
for as the waters fill the sea,
so the earth will be filled with people who know the Lord.
In that day, the lion will eat hay like a cow. Injustice and danger will be cast out. Jesus will return, and under His reign nothing will hurt or destroy.
In that day.
