GOD's Variety of Wild Goats


This is the second in the posting of GOD's Animal Kingdom mentioned in the Bible. Wild goats are the subject.

Deuteronomy 14:4-6 speaks of the clean animals man was allowed to eat. "You may eat of any animal that has a split hoof divided in two and that chews the cud." The wild goat is listed in verse 5.


I Samuel 24:2, "So Saul took three thousand chosen men from all Israel and set out to look for David  and his men near the Crags of the Wild Goat."  Even a place in the Bible was named for the wild goats.


Job 39:1, "Do you know when the wild goats give birth?" GOD is questioning Job's knowledge in comparison to His.


Psalm 104:18, "The high mountains belong to the wild goats." GOD even makes provisions for these marvels of His creation!

How much more our Almighty GOD provides for those who belong to Him. Do you know Him as your Savior! As much as He loves and provides for all His creatures, He also provides for those who know His salvation! Jesus Christ died on the Cross after He took upon Him all your sins. We can not reconcile ourselves to our Almighty GOD! Only Jesus, the perfect sacrifice, can do that. Ask the LORD to forgive you of your sins. Begin living for Him and His Holy Spirit will verify in your soul you are His child for ever! Praise our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD!!!

Forgiveness



Matthew 6:12, "Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us."

Forgiveness is a two way street. As Christ Jesus has forgiven us we must forgive others. Peter, Christ's disciple asked Jesus in Matthew 18:21, "LORD, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven!" In other words every time!


This passage further states in Matthew 6:15, "But if you DO NOT forgive men their sins, your Father GOD will not forgive your sins." Again, forgiveness is a two way street.


Christ died for all mankind's sins. He paid the ultimate price that man would not have to pay for his own sin in an eternal hell, a Lake of Fire

Revelation 20:15, "Anyone whose name was not found written in the Lamb's Book of Life was thrown into the Lake of Fire." "The Lake of Fire is the second death." (Revelation 20:14)
Again, death does not mean going out of existence, it is an eternal place one will spend forever and in torment with the devil and his angels. (Revelation 20:10) 

Choose Life eternal with our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior,  Holy Father GOD! All you need do is ask forgiveness of GOD to forgive your sins and then forgive others as GOD has forgiven you!

GOD Loves Variety



GOD created each individual to be completely different, even identical twins. We all have our own unique personality, disposition, and attitude. He created His animal kingdom in the same manner.

I'm starting a new "chapter" dealing with the animals GOD's Word mentions in scripture. The first is the animals above named, Hart or as we commonly know them to be gazelle or of the deer family.

There are at least eight mentionings of this animal. They are listed in the gazelle and deer family. GOD gave them for meat to eat by man.

Deuteronomy 12:22, "Eat them (hart) as you would gazelle or deer." In most of our modern translations they are spoken of as gazelle or deer rather than hart. The older translations uses the name "hart."

The other mentions in scripture are:  Deuteronomy 12:15, 14:5, 15:22, I Kings 4:23, Lamentations 1:6, Psalm 42:1, Isaiah 35:6. 

These animals were created and were placed in the Garden of Eden. The LORD delighted in His Creation. They will be restored during the Millennium reign of Christ as so the earth will be as the Garden of Eden. Satan will be bound in the bottomless pit and unable to tempt man. As Almighty GOD delights in His saved humanity to live with Him forever in the New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem, He will also restore His animal kingdom to be forever with Him and all those Chosen of Israel and Christ's Church. Romans 8:21 promises this: "The creatures themselves will be liberated from death and decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of GOD."

Jesus Is Our Sustenance



Matthew 6:11, "Give us today our daily bread."

Proverbs 30:8 "...give me neither poverty or riches, but give me only my daily bread."

Not only does our body need food for nourishment, but our spirit also needs to be fed. GOD's Word tells us in Matthew 4:4, "Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every Word that comes from the mouth of GOD,"

John 6:35 "Jesus declares...


"...he who comes to Me will never go hungry, he who belongs to Me will never be thirsty."


Come to the LORD in the salvation He has for you by paying your penalty for sin while upon the Cross.  For Jesus GOD proclaims, "I Am the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)

Ravens Call on GOD for Food


Psalm 147:9, "The LORD provides food for the cattle..."

Deuteronomy 11:15, "I (GOD) will provide grass in the fields for your cattle."


Psalm 147:9, "...and He provides for the ravens when they call!" 

Job 38:41, "Who provides food for the raven when its young cry out to GOD and wonder about the lack of food?"

GOD provides for all of His creatures! How much more so He cares for us because we are made in His image. (Genesis 1:27)


I Peter 5:7, "Cast your anxieties (cares, worries) on Him (Jesus) for He cares for you!"


Philippians 4:19, "GOD will meet all you needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus." If you know Jesus as your Savior, He has made this promise to you!

Father GOD's True Kingdom



The LORD's Prayer continues from last week.

Matthew 6:10, "...Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

Kingdom come refers to GOD's Spiritual reign. It was announced in Abraham's covenant (Matthew 8:11, Luke 13:28). It is present in Christ's reign in Believers hearts (Luke 17:21) and will be complete when all evil is destroyed and GOD establishes the New Heaven and the New Earth (Revelation 21:1).

Inanimate Objects Give Praise



In the New Heaven, New Earth, and New Jerusalem, not only will man be praising our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD, but what we call in this fallen world, "inanimate objects" will be praising GOD in all His glory!

Isaiah 55:12, "The mountains and hills will lead the parade, bursting with song! ...


"...All the trees of the forest will join the procession , exuberant with applause!"


The science of this fallen world rejects this possibility of mountains, hills, and forests praising their Almighty Creator because they don't have intelligence or vocal cords! But Scripture further speaks of this in that man's wisdom is not that of GOD's!

Isaiah 55:9, "As the universe is higher than the earth, so are My (GOD) ways than your (man) ways, and My (GOD) thoughts than your (man) thoughts."

I Corinthians 1:21, "Since in the wisdom of GOD, the world through its wisdom does not know Him."

I Corinthians 3:19, "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in GOD's sight."

Since the unbelievers don't understand GOD's wisdom through salvation, they see the things of GOD as foolishness, when in reality they are the fools.

Not only will those created things labeled as "inanimate objects" praise Almighty GOD, but His restored animal kingdom will also!

Romans 8:21, "The creatures themselves will be liberated from death and decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of GOD."



The animal kingdom will also verbally praise GOD and not with whinnies, baas, moos, and nays! Even the sea animals will praise Him!

Psalm 148:7, "Praise the LORD, you great sea creatures!"


Is it so "unbelievable" that animals will praise Almighty GOD their Creator throughout eternity when the mountains, hills, and trees of the forests will be praising and applauding Him!
