The New Earth

The deer crashes through the thicket made desperate by the gun.

The lion chases the goat who in terror is made to run.

The mother of the child is frightened. She fears and hates the snake.

The whole forest dreads the bear and the havoc he can make.

But a new voice comes in love and great power and announces the arrival of the long awaited hour.

.

“They shal not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea”.

There is a miracle in that voice. The lion and bear take note of deeply buried understanding  that no longer are remote.

No man or beast dares rebel against the speaker that is God who speaks with authority that is  either feared or awed.

Then a world against itself that did not know his way. Now a world is ordered because they heard him say:

“They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea”.
