I was watching funny videos on YouTube (as usual) from one of my favourite funny YouTube channels and I came across a video (above) of a lioness and a man bonding together, and the man played with the lioness and her cubs, and she (the lioness) loved him. Immediately I finished watching it, the Holy Spirit ministered to me that what I saw was just a glimpse of God’s love and the new earth that He has prepared for His children (us). John 14:1-4 says,

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”

A Glimpse of the New Earth

Now let us take a glimpse at this new earth that God has prepared for us. Here’s a detailed outline from Isaiah 65:17-25,

Verse 17 “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Verse 18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
Verse 19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
Verse 20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
Verse 21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
Verse 22  They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
Verse 23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.
Verse 24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
Verse 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.”

Isaiah 11:1-9 also gives us further proof. Let’s read from verse 6:

Verse 6 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
Verse 7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
Verse 8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
Verse 9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

You see!!! I know it’s really funny, but this is what the Spirit is saying. I would not encourage anybody getting close to a wild animal especially at this time, but you watched the video, you read the word of the Lord; this is just a glimpse and a little proof of God’s love and His promises towards us.
