It Was a Cruel, Cruel World: Death and Life Before and After the Fall (Part 41)

One way of describing this new creation comes to us from the Old Testament,

The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them…

Isaiah 11:6 (ESV)

Even carnivorous activity will become extinct.

Today, nature is “red in tooth and claw” and the world appears cruel. Death is a present reality. But, God promises that it, too, shall pass away.
