Q. I have heard it preached that there will come a time when the earth will be restored to its original state (before the fall) and all animals will be at peace with one another. I love to watch wildlife programs but I do wish they wouldn’t kill each other! What is your teaching on this please?
A. According to Isaiah there will be peace among the animals and between animals and mankind.
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 (Isaiah 11:6-7).
This will be the case during Israel’s Kingdom Age on Earth, also known as the Millennium, when the Lord returns to reign over the earth (Acts 3:21).
