The Resurrection of the Dogs, Etcetera

The Resurrection of The Dog, (and the Dogs, etc)

Background

The summary of this article is that the whole planetary life system of planet Earth has been compromised so that “death rules as king”, not just over sinful Adamic man, but also through mankind by error and unrighteous desires to affect all life and life systems of planet earth. This polluting and unbalancing effect goes down into the basis of life on earth in its air, soil, and water, and thereby the whole earthly biology and ecosystems are compromised.

It is painfully obvious humans do into actually understand life on earth and what it needs to actually survive as all human understanding is incomplete at best. And this kind of incomplete knowledge and ability affects everything on earth through compounding human error.

And thus when Christ comes as God’s solution and divine agent, to complete his work for 1000 years of Messianic Kingdom reign over this universe, including planet earth, all death is to be fully removed in totality of its affect on the earthly life system to the same degree death first “ruled as king”, by reversing the death process enabled by sin and error. Instead, Life will soon rule as King forever to the smallest details of what forms the very basis of life.

(John 1:1-14) In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god. 2 This one was in [the] beginning with God. 3 All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence. What has come into existence 4 by means of him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light is shining in the darkness, but the darkness has not overpowered it. 6 There arose a man that was sent forth as a representative of God: his name was John. 7 This [man] came for a witness, in order to bear witness about the light, that people of all sorts might believe through him. 8 He was not that light, but he was meant to bear witness about that light. 9 The true light that gives light to every sort of man was about to come into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world came into existence through him, but the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own home, but his own people did not take him in. 12 However, as many as did receive him, to them he gave authority to become God’s children, because they were exercising faith in his name; 13 and they were born, not from blood or from a fleshly will or from man’s will, but from God. 14 So the Word became flesh and resided among us, and we had a view of his glory, a glory such as belongs to an only-begotten son from a father; and he was full of undeserved kindness and truth.

THAT is the TRUTH.

Thus in logical connections, more than the human system is to be recovered in this process. Now we can examine the few references, but important details, that make it clearer a comprehensive restoration is due for everything affected by current human error empowered in the Edenic period of human existence, for it all also relates back to that first sin.

Solomon and Ecclesiastes

In Ecclesiastes we learn Animals are also in “Sheol”, “Hades”—”one place”, “the dust”. They, with humans, all have “one spirit”.

(Ecclesiastes 3:18-20) I, even I, have said in my heart with regard to the sons of mankind that the [true] God is going to select them, that they may see that they themselves are beasts. 19 For there is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of the man over the beast, for everything is vanity. 20 All are going to one place. (Sheol as the death “container”) They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust.

We also learn of that certain common “eventuality” man and beasts all share: death.

But Solomon had an incomplete understanding of the whole process in this “eventuality”, and so his “eventuality” has now been transcended by life made clearer after his time, in the same vein of prophecy leading to Christ. (2Pet1:19-21)

(2 Peter 1:19-21) Consequently we have the prophetic word [made] more sure; and you are doing well in paying attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and a daystar rises, in your hearts. 20 For you know this first, that no prophecy of Scripture springs from any private interpretation. 21 For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will, but men spoke from God as they were borne along by holy spirit.

Apparently that “light” is also the source of life. (John1:4)

Solomon’s understanding of that time, as revealed by God progressively, has now been transcended into the Christ into whom “all things” are to be eternally “gathered” and protected alive, for God created those things, first and foremost, for His Son, now known as Jesus Christ.

(Colossians 1:16) ALL things have been created through him and for him.

Is Satan going to steal from the Son of God and actually keep his goods in death? Of course not, in the full course of universal justice the opposite is going to occur:

(Mark 3:27) 27 In fact, no one that has got into the house of a strong man is able to plunder his movable goods unless first he binds the strong man, and then he will plunder his house.

Satan is that “strong man” to be bound and eventually terminated, because Satan is not the strongest thing in that realm. In his house are many dead things that must come forth. (Heb2:14)

The Son’s very existence is “created for him” as well. Thus, [other] “things”, is moot. We all know God has no Creator, He alone is the Creator, the origination of it all. But the Son plays an important role in creation, he is “the Beginning” of it all, and thereafter the instrumentality of God’s Creation.

(Revelation 3:14) “And to the angel of the congregation in Laodicea write: These are the things that the Amen says, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation by God

Thus “in the beginning” has a great meaning as well, when we know who this “beginning” is actually in reference to:

(Genesis 1:1) In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

The whole truth is stated in the Bible’s first sentence.

Thus Solomon’s then understood death “eventuality” has passed from “death” to “life”, guaranteed. (Acts17:30-31)

(John 5:24) Most truly I say to you, He that hears my word and believes him that sent me has everlasting life, and he does not come into judgment but has passed over from death to life.

(1 John 3:14) 14 We know we have passed over from death to life, because we love the brothers. He who does not love remains in death.

Thus the human source of death, is to be changed, and that changes everything on earth under that same hierarchy, whose basis and pinnacle is also changed, temporarily now given to death in the same cascading manner upon all life on earth.

In time, after Solomon, Isaiah eventually speaks of the “resurrection”. But not just of humans. We will get to that shortly, but we can examine an animal in that prophecy:

(Isaiah 34:14-17) And haunters of waterless regions must meet up with howling animals, and even the goat-shaped demon will call to its companion. Yes, there the nightjar will certainly take its ease and find for itself a resting-place. 15 There the arrow snake has made its nest and lays [eggs], and it must hatch [them] and gather [them] together under its shadow. Yes, there the gledes must collect themselves together, each one with her mate. 16 Search for yourselves in the book of Jehovah and read out loud: not one has been missing of them; they actually do not fail to have each one her mate, for it is the mouth of Jehovah that has given the command, and it is his spirit that has collected them together. 17 And it is He that has cast for them the lot, and his own hand has apportioned the place to them by the measuring line. To time indefinite they will take possession of it; for generation after generation they will reside in it.

“”The Glede mentioned in Deut. 14:13, Isaiah 34:15 is interpreted as Glede, Red Kite, or Vulture, depending on which copy of the Bible you use. When “Googling”, most articles list the Glede as extinct or a Kite.””

But is the “Glede” really extinct to God?

(Luke 20:38) He is a God, not of the dead, but of the living, for they are all living to him.”

(Isaiah 66:22) …the new heavens and the new earth that I am making are standing before me

(Isaiah 34:15) Yes, there the gledes must collect themselves together, each one with her mate.

So are they really “extinct”? Well not to God, to God they are “alive”—it is just a matter of time.

Do you believe the Bible is really God’s word and promise? In fact in full faith, God’s Word is very detailed, every word has a meaning beyond what is commonly known or even noticed by humans generally suffering from lack of faith and incomplete knowledge; in spite of eating of the tree of knowledge, go figure. (Gen3)

(Luke 16:17) Indeed, it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for ONE PARTICLE of a letter of the Law to go unfulfilled.

Remember when Christ said this?

(Matthew 10:29-31) Do not two sparrows sell for a coin of small value? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s [knowledge]. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Therefore have no fear: you are worth more than many sparrows.

Another translation reads:

“Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.”



In short, God REMEMBERS the sparrows who died. It means those seemingly insignificant living “things”, like the small sparrows, are NOT insignificant to God Almighty. Rather these “living things”, “living souls”, are “noted” by God “in memory”. God also remembers not just what Jesus said, but why he said it, and what it means, which must eventually be brought to fuller understanding as the actual time for these things approaches with the reality “they are all living to him”.

Solomon’s “Eventuality”

Now in Solomon’s time the nation of Israel had a clear understanding of death:

(Genesis 2:15-17) And Jehovah God proceeded to take the man and settle him in the garden of Eden to cultivate it and to take care of it. 16 And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man: “From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction. 17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die.”

(Ecclesiastes 9:10) All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol, the place to which you are going.

And this was the eventuality they understood well as related to events in Eden causing global systemic death by original human sin of Adam and the woman:

(Genesis 3:19-20) In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return.” 20 After this Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she had to become the mother of everyone living.

Now Solomon by inspiration actually reveals a greater detail about death:

(Ecclesiastes 3:18-20) I, even I, have said in my heart with regard to the sons of mankind that the [true] God is going to select them, that they may see that they themselves are beasts. 19 For there is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of the man over the beast, for everything is vanity. 20 All are going to one place. (Sheol as the death “container”) They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust.

Thus the “wise man” Solomon has basically told us by inspiration of God, that animals are also in the “one place” of “dust” in an implied “one death” in “Sheol”; also the “Hades” meaning. The “eventuality” is the same for all living things of earth: Death.

(Romans 5:12-14) That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned—. 13 For until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not charged against anyone when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death ruled as king from Adam down to Moses, even over those who had not sinned after the likeness of the transgression by Adam, who bears a resemblance to him that was to come.

Thus the Adamic death has a global effect of the whole earth planetary life system not just human beings.

At that time Israel did not have a clear understanding of the resurrection, though they recognized its possibility, its details were unknown at that time:

(Job 14:14-15) If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? All the days of my compulsory service (death) I shall wait, Until my relief comes. (the resurrection) 15 You will call, and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning.

(Isaiah 26:19) 19 “Your dead ones will live. A corpse of mine—they will rise up. Awake and cry out joyfully, you residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of mallows, and the earth itself will let even those impotent in death drop [in birth].

Now we know more than humans are in that “dust”.

(Psalm 133:3)It is like the dew of Hermon That is descending upon the mountains of Zion. For there Jehovah commanded the blessing [to be], [Even] life to time indefinite.

(Isaiah 66:22) “For just as the new heavens and the new earth that I am making are standing before me,” is the utterance of Jehovah, “so the offspring of you people and the name of you people will keep standing.”

We know now, it was later in Israel that the solution to the removal of death was identified in Jesus Christ and his sacrifice and that is now global “good news”. It was just the very beginning of the physical recovery work:

(Hebrews 2:14-16) Therefore, since the “young children” are sharers of blood and flesh, he also similarly partook of the same things, that through his death he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil; 15 and [that] he might emancipate all those who for fear of death were subject to slavery all through their lives. 16 For he is really not assisting angels at all, but he is assisting Abraham’s seed.

Death is present only on earth, thus the “assistance” is with the goal of removal of death from this life system on earth.

(Luke 20:37-38) But that the dead (a very general term now) are raised up even Moses disclosed, in the account about the thornbush, when he calls Jehovah ‘the God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob.’ 38 He is a God, not of the dead, but of the living, for they are all living to him.”

Solomon’s Big Question

Yet the wise man Solomon did not know the answer to this question, but it was on his mind:

(Ecclesiastes 3:21) Who is there knowing the spirit of the sons of mankind, whether it is ascending upward; and the spirit of the beast, whether it is descending downward to the earth? 

Thus the question is, will God keep the animals in memory? Will animals be restored by resurrection?

But in time more prophets leading to Christ, and after him, began enlightening the way to a better understanding of the “eventuality” to unfold fully “in Christ” as the time approached more closely for the removal of the erred human temporary system of global management:

(Romans 16:25-27) Now to him who can make you firm in accord with the good news I declare and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the sacred secret which has been kept in silence for long-lasting times 26 but has now been made manifest and has been made known through the prophetic scriptures among all the nations in accord with the command of the everlasting God to promote obedience by faith; 27 to God, wise alone, be the glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.

(2 Peter 1:19-21) Consequently we have the prophetic word [made] more sure; and you are doing well in paying attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and a daystar rises, in your hearts. 20 For you know this first, that no prophecy of Scripture springs from any private interpretation. 21 For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will, but men spoke from God as they were borne along by holy spirit.

(Ephesians 1:8-10) This he caused to abound toward us in all wisdom and good sense, 9 in that he made known to us the sacred secret of his will. It is according to his good pleasure which he purposed in himself 10 for an administration at the full limit of the appointed times, namely, to gather all things together again in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth.

(Revelation 10:6-7) “There will be no delay any longer; 7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to blow his trumpet, the sacred secret of God according to the good news which he declared to his own slaves the prophets is indeed brought to a finish.”

And lo and behold some final details are revealed in the Revelation. Christ has “the keys”, plural, not just to human death as symbolized in that Sheol and Hades term, but also to DEATH itself, the comprehensive state:

(Revelation 1:17-18) And he laid his right hand upon me and said: “Do not be fearful. I am the First and the Last, 18 and the living one; and I became dead, but, look! I am living forever and ever, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. 

Thus those are “keys”, plural, and “death” and “Hades”, two things, have a general and specific meaning. Thus Satan having “the ability to cause death” by sin, means he must be terminated to become the final epitome of death, himself dead, as he receives that which he wills for all life, as man in time is freed from death by actual perfection which the atonement gives the necessary time to accomplish in the transformation. Killing Satan just finalizes the “removal of the last enemy death” at its true source. (Heb2:14, 1Cor15:26)

(Isaiah 25:7-9) And in this mountain he will certainly swallow up the face of the envelopment that is enveloping over all the peoples, and the woven work that is interwoven upon all the nations. 8 He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken [it]. 9 And in that day one will certainly say: “Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.”

Thus “DEATH” is a far larger global condition than the “Hades” meaning, which according to Solomon also contains the animals in death “as the one dies, so the other dies; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of the man over the beast, for everything is vanity” because “all are going to one place”. As we know from Genesis reaffirmed in Ecclesiastes “they have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust” and in that is the Hades “common grave of mankind”—but more is in Hades than just humans as Solomon’s divinely aided wisdom has given us the clue.

Because in Solomon’s time the “eventuality” was death, for little was understood of the guaranteed resurrection, little was understood about the conquering holy “seed of the woman” of Genesis 3:15. In Christ’s time and now we can know the “eventuality” is still the same in “gathered in death”:

(Hosea 4:3) That is why the land will mourn and every inhabitant in it will have to fade away with the wild beast of the field and with the flying creature of the heavens, and even the fishes of the sea themselves will be gathered [in death].

But now the ultimate “eventuality” is LIFE as the conclusion of the “death” process as recovered by Jesus Christ:

(Revelation 20:13) And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Hades gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds.

(Acts 17:30-31) True, God has overlooked the times of such ignorance, yet now he is telling mankind that they should all everywhere repent. 31 Because he has set a day in which he purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and he has furnished a guarantee to all men in that he has resurrected him from the dead.”

The Explicit Prophecies of Animal Restoration

In fact the restorative action upon the animals was already mentioned by Isaiah in reference to their complete number “not one has been missing of them” and to the procreative completion in “they actually do not fail to have each one her mate”:

(Isaiah 34:13-17) On her dwelling towers thorns must come up, nettles and thorny weeds in her fortified places; and she must become an abiding place of jackals, the courtyard for the ostriches. 14 And haunters of waterless regions must meet up with howling animals, and even the goat-shaped demon will call to its companion. Yes, there the nightjar will certainly take its ease and find for itself a resting-place. 15 There the arrow snake has made its nest and lays [eggs], and it must hatch [them] and gather [them] together under its shadow. Yes, there the gledes must collect themselves together, each one with her mate. 16 Search for yourselves in the book of Jehovah and read out loud: not one has been missing of them; they actually do not fail to have each one her mate, for it is the mouth of Jehovah that has given the command, and it is his spirit that has collected them together. 17 And it is He that has cast for them the lot, and his own hand has apportioned the place to them by the measuring line. To time indefinite they will take possession of it; for generation after generation they will reside in it.

Hmmmm. Sounds like everlasting life for them too. And if God is remembering the full number of the “gledes” (birds of prey), and the “arrow snake”, and the “two sparrows”, I guess dogs and cats and everything else is in God’s memory too, in that “book of Jehovah” which is more than just the prophecy concerning this comprehensive global life restoration:

(Ezekiel 47:9) And it must occur that every living soul that swarms, in every place to which the double-size torrent comes, will get life. And it must occur that there will be very many fish, because there is where this water will certainly come, and the [seawater] will be healed, and everything will be alive where the torrent comes.

Now we know “it must occur that every living soul that swarms… will get life” as “everything will be alive where the torrent comes”. What “torrent”? Well that torrent is global, that “river”, the “river of life”, will be everywhere in progressive manner under Christ’s rule:

(Ezekiel 47:1-6) And gradually he brought me back to the entrance of the House, and, look! there was water going forth from under the threshold of the House eastward (the direction of earth, Ps45, Dan11:44), for the front of the House was east. And the water was going down from under, from the right-hand side of the House, south of the altar. 2 And he gradually brought me forth by the way of the north gate and took me around by the way outside to the outer gate that is facing toward the east, and, look! water was trickling from the right-hand side. 3 When the man went forth eastward with a measuring line in his hand, he also proceeded to measure a (1) thousand in cubits and to make me pass through the water, water [up] to the ankles. 4 And he continued measuring a (2) thousand and then made me pass through the water, water [up] to the knees. And he continued measuring a (3) thousand and now made me pass through—water [up] to the hips. 5 And he continued measuring a (4) thousand. It was a torrent that I was not able to pass through, for the water had got high, water [permitting] swimming, a torrent that could not be passed through.

Thus the “four square” progression of the river pf life is global—and restoration of the “dead sea” is the objetive:

(Ezekiel 47:6-8) At that he said to me: “Have you seen [this], O son of man?” Then he had me walk and had me return [to] the bank of the torrent. 7 When I returned, why, look! on the bank of the torrent there were very many trees, on this side and on that side. 8 And he went on to say to me: “This water is going forth to the eastern region and must go down through the Arabah. And it must come to the sea. It being brought forth into the sea itself, [its] water is also actually healed.

*** Insight on the Scriptures 1 p. 138 Arabah ***

That part of the extraordinary depression, or rift valley, that extends toward the [south] from the slopes of Mount Hermon, cradles the Sea of Galilee and the Jordan River, drops far below sea level to form the basin of the Dead Sea, and then continues on southward to the Gulf of Aqaba at the Red Sea.—De 3:17; Jos 3:16; 11:16; Jer 52:7.
(Revelation 20:13) And the sea gave up those dead in it…

(Revelation 21:1) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more.

The “dead sea” is to be gone. Thus the “dead sea” is all life on earth, in mankind and all life affected on earth by human sin, error, and Satanic guidance, empowering Satan’s “ability to cause death” to all things. (Heb2:14)

But that condition is changing under Christ’s rule:

(Revelation 22:1-3) And he showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of its broad way. And on this side of the river and on that side [there were] trees of life producing twelve crops of fruit, yielding their fruits each month. And the leaves of the trees [were] for the curing of the nations. 3 And no more will there be any curse. (curses of Genesis 3:14-17)

Interesting “trees” these:

(Ezekiel 47:12) Their leafage will not wither, nor will their fruitage be consumed.

Thus the “corruption” of Romans 8:18-22 is that degenerative “decay” known to this world as if “natural”—its always been like that y’all!; but it is not natural and it is beyond human in understanding how it was applied since Eden. Man is now many times removed from Eden’s life and the Garden of Eden’s life. (Gen3:20-24, Gen6-8)

And it is just a matter of time that the earthly life system is to be “gathered” in “all things together again in the Christ” including “the things on the earth”:

(Ephesians 1:8-10) This he caused to abound toward us in all wisdom and good sense, 9 in that he made known to us the sacred secret of his will. It is according to his good pleasure which he purposed in himself 10 for an administration at the full limit of the appointed times, namely, to gather all things together again in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth. [Yes,] in him…

The restoration is comprehensive, “ALL things” are “made new”:

(Revelation 21:5-6) And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says: “Write, because these words are faithful and true.” 6 And he said to me: “They have come to pass! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To anyone thirsting I will give from the fountain of the water of life free.

Now we know the “re-creation” is a global earthly parallel in that “making all things new”:

(Matthew 19:28) Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, In the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down upon his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also yourselves sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

As gradually the death “curse” is removed:

(Revelation 22:3) And no more will there be any curse.

And that “curse” of Genesis 3:14-17 was the removal of this hierarchical global “blessing” at Genesis 1:26-28:

(Genesis 1:26-28) And God went on to say: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every moving animal that is moving upon the earth.” 27 And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28 Further, God blessed them and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving upon the earth.”

And so even after Armageddon, those humans not yet perfected in sinlessness are part of this progressive restoration of life by the “waters” of that “torrent” “river”:

(Revelation 7:17) the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will shepherd them, and will guide them to fountains of waters of life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes.”

Now we understand the “eventuality” that Solomon spoke of, has a furtherance, as the oath and promise of the “blessing” to and thru Abraham’s “seed” is to mean a planetary life restoration for the “families of the ground”:

(Genesis 12:3) And I will bless those who bless you, and him that calls down evil upon you I shall curse, and all the families of the ground will certainly bless themselves by means of you.”

Now of course the “families of the ground” is very general, it contains far more than just human “families”. Now the “nations of the earth” is the more specific blessing recipient in mankind, whose curse in Genesis 3:14-17 is to be removed as the blessing is to be bestowed globally in the hierarchal manner present in Genesis 1:26-28—the same hierarchy of the curse that brought global death:

(Genesis 22:15-18) And Jehovah’s angel proceeded to call to Abraham the second time out of the heavens 16 and to say: “‘By myself I do swear,’ is the utterance of Jehovah, ‘that by reason of the fact that you have done this thing and you have not withheld your son, your only one, 17 I shall surely bless you and I shall surely multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens and like the grains of sand that are on the seashore; and your seed will take possession of the gate of his enemies. 18 And by means of your seed all nations of the earth will certainly bless themselves due to the fact that you have listened to my voice.’”

The Adamic “curse” is to be removed, which hierarchical effect will affect all the “families of the ground” as more than just humans “groan” under the error and decrepitude of human global management ultimately under the death-dealing influence of Satan (Eph6:12) and the demons:

(Romans 8:18-22) Consequently I reckon that the sufferings of the present season do not amount to anything in comparison with the glory that is going to be revealed in us. 19 For the eager expectation of the creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will but through him that subjected it, on the basis of hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22 For we know that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now.

“All creation” is far more than just human beings as some try to promote that selfish idea.

And the blessing is eternal life as empowered by sinlessness:

(Psalm 133:3) It is like the dew of Hermon That is descending upon the mountains of Zion. For there Jehovah commanded the blessing [to be], [Even] life to time indefinite.

Animals Not Just Restored, But Non-Predatory and at Peace

Now for “peace” to be found in an animal system now based on predation and sure death, temporary “survival of the fittest”, it is a hint of the kinds of global changes coming under Christ’s rule of the entire basis of how the creation operates:

(Isaiah 11:6-9) And the wolf will actually reside for a while with the male lamb, and with the kid the leopard itself will lie down, and the calf and the maned young lion and the well-fed animal all together; and a mere little boy will be leader over them. 7 And the cow and the bear themselves will feed; together their young ones will lie down. And even the lion will eat straw just like the bull. 8 And the sucking child will certainly play upon the hole of the cobra; and upon the light aperture of a poisonous snake will a weaned child actually put his own hand. 9 They will not do any harm or cause any ruin in all my holy mountain; because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah as the waters are covering the very sea.

Thus the whole “the creation itself also will be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God”, and that is everything including the whole earthly planetary life system now being ruined and oppressed by predatory and avaricious human rule:

(Revelation 11:15-18) 15 And the seventh angel blew his trumpet. And loud voices occurred in heaven, saying: “The kingdom of the world did become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will rule as king forever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders who were seated before God upon their thrones fell upon their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying: “We thank you, Jehovah God, the Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and begun ruling as king. 18 But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time for the dead to be judged, and to give [their] reward to your slaves the prophets and to the holy ones and to those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”

Thus the “Kingdom of the World” is what Last Adam will “inherit” and become the basis of life upon, as foundational perfect human provided by a whole sacrifice:

(Hebrews 10:9-10) He does away with what is first that he may establish what is second. 10 By the said “will” we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all time.

Thus the “Kingdom of the World” is the earthly domain of the whole earthly life system, whose pinnacle was the creation of Adam and the woman (Gen1:26-28), and whose sin in Eden allowed the systemic foundation of death to be set in all mankind to come from them. Of course that death and error affects the whole planet progressively, nothing on earth is unaffected by human error and greed. Even earth’s “waters” are polluted to varying degrees, even the water is literally impure, as is the air and soil and everything that comes from that life basis.

And by the hierarchical Kingship of Christ under God Almighty death is to be fully terminated itself at the end of the earthly restoration process:

(1 Corinthians 15:24-28) Next, the end, when he hands over the kingdom to his God and Father, when he has brought to nothing all government and all authority and power. 25 For he must rule as king until [God] has put all enemies under his feet. 26 As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. 27 For [God] “subjected all things under his feet.” But when he says that ‘all things have been subjected,’ it is evident that it is with the exception of the one who subjected all things to him. 28 But when all things will have been subjected to him, then the Son himself will also subject himself to the One who subjected all things to him, that God may be all things to everyone.

In ultimate principle Adam is one of those “first” things to be removed, “done away with”; Adamic “genetic”, “progeny”, is to be fully removed from the human family, as the “curse” ultimately meant his complete death as well as the complete removal of his patriarchical foundation from mankind in the eventual full extinction of his children. The ultimate meaning of the “curse”, total death. (Rev22:1-3)

(1 Corinthians 15:45-46) “The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. 46 Nevertheless, the first is, not that which is spiritual, but that which is physical, afterward that which is spiritual. 

(1 Corinthians 15:22) For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.

This is because life can never again be actually present in Adamic flesh and all that error affects, and this is why Christ as a perfect human being sacrificed is “last Adam”, the coming “Eternal Father” patriarchical replacement of Adam for the whole planetary life system of Earth.

Thus more than just human death is in that “in Adam ALL are dying”, and more than just humans must be recovered “in the Christ ALL will be made alive”.

(1 Timothy 6:13) In the sight of God, who preserves all things alive, and of Christ Jesus…

(Jude 1) preserved for Jesus Christ…

(Matthew 9:17) But people put new wine into new wineskins, and both things are preserved…

And such is why Satan will not steal even a “sparrow” from God and in the end of him, his life is terminated as the whole former Satanic authority passes away from his “heavenly places” based rulership also cleared out permanently, universally.

(John 12:31) Now there is a judging of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.

(Revelation 20:10,13-15) And the Devil who was misleading them was hurled into the lake of fire and sulphur, where both the wild beast and the false prophet [already were]; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. … 13 And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Hades gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. 14 And death and Hades were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire.

(Ezekiel 28:18b-19) And I shall make [Satan] ashes upon the earth before the eyes of all those seeing you. 19 As for all those knowing you among the peoples, they will certainly stare in amazement at you. Sudden terrors are what you must become, and you will be no more to time indefinite.

(1 Corinthians 15:26-27) As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. 27 For [God] “subjected all things under his feet.” 

(Genesis 3:15) And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heel.”

(Revelation 21:1-6) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I saw also the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” 5 And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new.” Also, he says: “Write, because these words are faithful and true.” 6 And he said to me: “They have come to pass! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To anyone thirsting I will give from the fountain of the water of life free.

Everything on earth that has water in its life basis will have access to drink that global “water”. Humans are the ones under freewill, animals were innocent victims of Satanic and human greed for knowledge and power, which empowered man’s ultimate end development in global defiance to the Messianic Kingdom universal government.

(Mark 12:26-27) But concerning the dead, that they are raised up, did you not read in the book of Moses, in the account about the thornbush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob’? 27 He is a God, not of the dead, but of the living.

(Romans 5:10) For if, when we were enemies, we became reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, now that we have become reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 

(Hebrews 7:15-17) And it is still more abundantly clear that with a similarity to Melchizedek there arises another priest, 16 who has become such, not according to the law of a commandment depending upon the flesh, but according to the power of an indestructible life, 17 for in witness it is said: “You are a priest forever according to the manner of Melchizedek.”

(Romans 5:12-14) That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned—. 13 For until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not charged against anyone when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death ruled as king from Adam down to Moses, even over those who had not sinned after the likeness of the transgression by Adam, who bears a resemblance to him that was to come.

(Genesis 3:14-19) And Jehovah God proceeded to say to the serpent: “Because you have done this thing, you are the cursed one out of all the domestic animals and out of all the wild beasts of the field. Upon your belly you will go and dust is what you will eat all the days of your life. 15 And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heel.” 16 To the woman he said: “I shall greatly increase the pain of your pregnancy; in birth pangs you will bring forth children, and your craving will be for your husband, and he will dominate you.” 17 And to Adam he said: “Because you listened to your wife’s voice and took to eating from the tree concerning which I gave you this command, ‘You must not eat from it,’ cursed is the ground on your account. In pain you will eat its produce all the days of your life. 18 And thorns and thistles it will grow for you, and you must eat the vegetation of the field. 19 In the sweat of your face you will eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are and to dust you will return.”

(Romans 5:17) For if by the trespass of the one [man] death ruled as king through that one, much more will those who receive the abundance of the undeserved kindness and of the free gift of righteousness rule as kings in life through the one [person], Jesus Christ.

The “the free gift of righteousness” is sinlessness present in Christ’s sacrifice to be accessible to all willing:

(Revelation 22:12-15) 12 “‘Look! I am coming quickly, and the reward I give is with me, to render to each one as his work is. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. 14 Happy are those who wash their robes, that the authority [to go] to the trees of life may be theirs and that they may gain entrance into the city by its gates. 15 Outside are the dogs and those who practice spiritism and the fornicators and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone liking and carrying on a lie.’

Of course physical “dogs” are not barred from the “holy city” under the benefits of its life giving rule, by that time of final fulfillment, will have fully “come down out of heaven” for that very global eternal life purpose on earth.

(Romans 5:21) That, just as sin ruled as king with death, likewise also undeserved kindness might rule as king through righteousness with everlasting life in view through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(Romans 5:15) For if by one man’s trespass many died, the undeserved kindness of God and his free gift with the undeserved kindness by the one man Jesus Christ abounded much more to many.

(Romans 6:10) 10 For [the death] that he died, he died with reference to sin once for all time; but [the life] that he lives, he lives with reference to God.

And it appears, “with reference to God”, God even has every “sparrow” “in mind”, and God does not forget, and they too are in “the book of Jehovah” which merely outlines what the real “book of Jehovah” has purposed beyond human intelligence and even imagination ultimately brought about by God himself:

(1 Corinthians 2:9-10) But just as it is written: “Eye has not seen and ear has not heard, neither have there been conceived in the heart of man the things that God has prepared for those who love him.” 10 For it is to us God has revealed them through his spirit, for the spirit searches into all things, even the deep things of God.

(Isaiah 64:3-5) When you did fear-inspiring things for which we could not hope, you came down. On account of you the mountains themselves quaked. 4 And from time long ago none have heard, nor have any given ear, nor has an eye itself seen a God, except you, that acts for the one that keeps in expectation of him. 5 You have met up with the one exulting and doing righteousness, those who keep remembering you in your own ways.

Thus God’s “will done on earth” is far more extensive than just recovering human beings the secondary source of the former “reign of death” through Satan’s own error.

(John 8:44) That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie]. 

(1 John 3:8) He who carries on sin originates with the Devil, because the Devil has been sinning from [the] beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was made manifest, namely, to break up the works of the Devil.

The whole life system has been lost through human sin that gave Satanic access to the whole earth life system by human error and Satanic “will of that one”.

(Matthew 6:10-11) 10 Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth. 11 Give us today our bread for this day…

And that “bread” is life in Christ, and that “day” is the 1000 year reign.

(John 6:33-35) For the bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 Therefore they said to him: “Lord, always give us this bread.” 35 Jesus said to them: “I am the bread of life. He that comes to me will not get hungry at all, and he that exercises faith in me will never get thirsty at all.

(John 4:14-15) Whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty at all, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water bubbling up to impart everlasting life.” 15 The woman said to him: “Sir, give me this water, so that I may neither thirst nor keep coming over to this place to draw water.”

(1 John 2:1-2) My little children, I am writing you these things that you may not commit a sin. And yet, if anyone does commit a sin, we have a helper with the Father, Jesus Christ, a righteous one. 2 And he is a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins, yet not for ours only but also for the whole world’s.

(Romans 6:23) For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.

(Romans 8:38-39) For I am convinced that neither death nor life nor angels nor governments nor things now here nor things to come nor powers 39 nor height nor depth nor any other creation will be able to separate us from God’s love that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(John 11:25-26) Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life; 26 and everyone that is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this?

(Acts 24:15) there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.

Well to me the animals are pretty righteous in general terms and I believe they are also included in the “re-creation” as comprehensively restored in “last Adam” as they were comprehensively lost in death in Adam. The “soul” is what defines the being, this defined life as God knows, body and “soul”, is part of the “all things made new” that was lost to “corruption” in Romans 8:18-22, which is decay and death related that came through the sin of Adam and Eve affecting these things under that hierarchical blessing of Genesis 1:26-28:

(Genesis 1:30) And to every wild beast of the earth and to every flying creature of the heavens and to everything moving upon the earth in which there is life as a soul I have given all green vegetation for food.” And it came to be so.

Now human beings from Adam and Eve are also “living souls”:

(Genesis 2:7-10) 7 And Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul. 8 Further, Jehovah God planted a garden in Eden, toward the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9 Thus Jehovah God made to grow out of the ground every tree desirable to one’s sight and good for food and also the tree of life in the middle of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and bad. 10 Now there was a river issuing out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it began to be parted and it became, as it were, four heads.

That “river”, though physical as well at that time in Eden, is also the “four square” symbol of the “river of life” to be restored under Christ, for that “river” became earthly death from the sin to all living souls of earth.

(Isaiah 55:1-2) Hey there, all you thirsty ones! Come to the water. And the ones that have no money! Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk even without money and without price. 2 Why do you people keep paying out money for what is not bread, and why is your toil for what results in no satisfaction? 

(Isaiah 35:5-7) At that time the eyes of the blind ones will be opened, and the very ears of the deaf ones will be unstopped. 6 At that time the lame one will climb up just as a stag does, and the tongue of the speechless one will cry out in gladness. For in the wilderness waters will have burst out, and torrents in the desert plain. 7 And the heat-parched ground will have become as a reedy pool, and the thirsty ground as springs of water. In the abiding place of jackals, a resting-place for [them], there will be green grass with reeds and papyrus plants.

Once again the animals “in the abiding place of jackals, a resting-place for [them], there will be green grass with reeds and papyrus plants” are tied into that “water” as comprehensively as the “waters” of this system of things bring death to all.

(Jeremiah 17:8) And he will certainly become like a tree planted by the waters, that sends out its roots right by the watercourse; and he will not see when heat comes, but his foliage will actually prove to be luxuriant.

And therein is the “water” that is also in the “trees of life”, PLURAL “trees”, for animals also eat of the “vegetation for food” when back in the Edenic restored condition, as at the beginning.

(Genesis 1:30) everything moving upon the earth in which there is life as a soul I have given all green vegetation for food.

(Revelation 22:2) And on this side of the river and on that side [there were] trees of life producing twelve crops of fruit, yielding their fruits each month. And the leaves of the trees [were] for the curing of the nations.

So the comprehensive global symbol in this coming earthly reality is why the real focus of Christ always has been the earth paradise restoration, “as in heaven, also upon the earth”, as at this time this “city” is now present on earth having “coming down from heaven” to earth as God’s will also “takes place on earth, as in heaven”:

(Revelation 22:14) Happy are those who wash their robes, that the authority [to go] to the trees of life may be theirs and that they may gain entrance into the city by its gates.

Since animals are not freewill beings conscious of sin, but already performed God’s will “perfectly” as his creations, merely corrupted by human error, they are beneficiaries of Christ’s comprehensive global life restoration just as they have suffered and died, even sharing human forms of disease empowered by Adam and subsequent human error and sin as guided by the rebel angel Satan who will also get the death he also “has the ability to cause”, but his is everlasting destruction. (Heb2:14)

(1 Corinthians 8:5-6) For even though there are those who are called “gods,” whether in heaven or on earth, just as there are many “gods” and many “lords,” 6 there is actually to us one God the Father, out of whom all things are, and we for him; and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things are, and we through him.

More on the animal restoration

Why do Jehovah witnesses are promising a new system of things, and that promise is not in any bible translation. nor Jesus or Jehovah promised same. While some translation mention a coming system of things which is Jesus 1000 year rule, which is a system or period of time. God promise everlasting life, not a system of things. Why men are trying to rob mankind of everlasting life.



(Ephesians 1:19-21) . . .It is according to the operation of the mightiness of his strength, 20 with which he has operated in the case of the Christ when he raised him up from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name named, not only in this system of things, but also in that to come.

It is inferred that “all thing are made new” in a coming “system of things”.

It is all to be “re” “created”, made perfect from demon and human error and death.
(Matthew 19:28) Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, In the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down upon his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also yourselves sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

EVERYTHING WILL BE ALIVE—forever

(Ezekiel 47:9) . . .And it must occur that every living soul that swarms, in every place to which the double-size torrent comes, will get life. And it must occur that there will be very many fish, because there is where this water will certainly come, and the [seawater] will be healed, and everything will be alive where the torrent comes.

(Luke 20:38) . . .He is a God, not of the dead, but of the living, for they are all living to him.”

And that means the blessing on the animals in Genesis one is actually a blessing.

(Psalm 133:3) . . .It is like the dew of Hermon That is descending upon the mountains of Zion. For there Jehovah commanded the blessing, life to time indefinite.



Do not be fooled by the current Satanic lie, it passes away too.

(Romans 8:18-22) . . .Consequently I reckon that the sufferings of the present season do not amount to anything in comparison with the glory that is going to be revealed in us. 19 For the eager expectation of the creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will but through him that subjected it, on the basis of hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from enslavement to corruption and have the glorious freedom of the children of God. 22 For we know that all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now. 

(Hebrews 2:14-15) Therefore, since the “young children” are sharers of blood and flesh, he also similarly partook of the same things, that through his death he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil; 15 and [that] he might emancipate all those who for fear of death were subject to slavery all through their lives. 

Animals are also in Hades or Sheol state of temporary death in Adam.

So Solomon asked this question:

(Ecclesiastes 3:21) Who is there knowing the spirit of the sons of mankind, whether it is ascending upward; and the spirit of the beast, whether it is descending downward to the earth? 



But he already had the answer:

(Ecclesiastes 3:18-20) I, even I, have said in my heart with regard to the sons of mankind that the [true] God is going to select them, that they may see that they themselves are beasts. 19 For there is an eventuality as respects the sons of mankind and an eventuality as respects the beast, and they have the same eventuality. As the one dies, so the other dies; and they all have but one spirit, so that there is no superiority of the man over the beast, for everything is vanity. 20 All are going to one place. (Sheol as the death “container”) They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust. 

He just did not know by Christ, the “eventuality” is now LIFE.

(1 Timothy 6:13) . . .In the sight of God, who preserves all things alive. . .



Thus “death and hades” is all death, not just hades defined human and animal death:

(Revelation 20:13) And the sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Hades gave up those dead in them…

Animals will be “recreated” in that planetary life restoration of the whole Earth life system, “ALL things made new”.

(Ephesians 1:10) . . .an administration at the full limit of the appointed times, namely, to gather all things together again in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth. [Yes,] in him. . .

And he is “Last Adam”, and thus all things under Last Adam benefit from LIFE in Christ, just as all things died in Adam.

(1 Corinthians 15:22) . . .For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive. 

So this error:

(Ephesians 4:6) God and Father of all [persons], who is over all and through all and in all.

Should read:

(Ephesians 4:6) God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Just as these “families of the ground” include the animals:

(Genesis 12:3) And I will bless those who bless you, and him that calls down evil upon you I shall curse, and all the families of the ground will certainly bless themselves by means of you.”

NO ONE steals God’s creatures, as He is the ultimate father of all things.

It is “ashes to ashes” for Satan, the bringer of death:

(Ezekiel 28:18) And I shall make you ashes upon the earth before the eyes of all those seeing you. 

(Genesis 3:15) 15 And I shall put enmity between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed. He will bruise you in the head and you will bruise him in the heel.”

And thus when Satan is terminated, we are back at day one, in perfection of all things corrupted in decay, by Satan, through human sin.
