Holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling,
I'm writing you from the deepest joy over how more and more people are daily discovering the Universal Restoration and God's purpose in Christ where the Hosea 2:18 Covenant is concerned: from boundless love we are to refrain from the exploitation of animal flesh and stand in faith in their behalf for each of the animals to enter into the liberties of the children of God.
It is not burdensome for me to remind you and for you it's a safety issue to remind you that wisdom is the principle thing, Christ is made unto us wisdom from God, and as we've received Christ Jesus, the Lord, we are to walk in Him, being rooted, built up, and established in the faith, abounding in it with thanksgiving. As we let the Word of Christ dwell in us richly in all wisdom, if we face any temptation, testing, or trial we're to ask God for wisdom. He gives to all liberally and doesn't upbraid. We're supposed to believe we receive it when we pray and do everything we do and say everything we say in the Name of Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him, knowing that in everything this is the will of God for us.
The Gospel of Christ, furthermore, tells us to abstain from all fornication, from all lying, from all strife, and from the very appearance of evil. We're instructed to preserve a clear conscience and to endeavor to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace, walking in peace and holiness without which no one will see the Lord. We're encouraged to maintain good works, to care for widows, orphans, the least of His brethren, and animals, being faithful brother's keepers and shepherds of all of Creation, blessing at all times, giving generously, praying fervently for all men everywhere so that the Church would live in prosperity, and we're to daily endeavor to build one another up, even as God is building and planting in the life of every man and every animal everywhere as they tremble at His goodness and for all the prosperity He is giving.
We are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, living a New Jerusalem experience with people and animals, according to Isaiah 11:2-9, Isaiah 40:11 (compare with Ephesians 1:22-23), Jeremiah 31:27-28, Jeremiah 33:6-16, and Zechariah 2:4-5. We're to not remember the former things as God does a new thing with His Covenantal Word that can't be removed, won't return to Him void, and that He'll not break nor alter. We are to rejoice in the Lord always, cast every care upon Him, and bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. We're to let the same mind be in us that was also in Christ Jesus Who thought it not robbery to be called equal with God.
The Covenantal-prosperity of God that passes all understanding will guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus, and this epistle should be read to all the holy brethren. You're to bare with the exhortation that I have written to you a few words, you're to entrust these saying to faithful men that'll be able to teach others, to be a good steward of the mysteries of God, to not grow weary in well doing, knowing you'll reap if you faint not, and the grace of our Lord Jesus will be with your spirit, sufficient for all things, so that you will abound to every good work.
P.S. Just in case it didn't "click" above for you: Isaiah 40:11 prevents animals from being a part of what's under the feet of a redeemed man in Ephesians 1:22-23. Luke 10:19 being prior to the Cross, for those who insist upon applying it to physical serpents and scorpions, isn't the language of Mark 16:18, which more closely resembles the language of Isaiah 11:2-9. Clearly self defense still applies and I'm not advocating abuse of animals in bizarre religious services in Hillbilly services 'cause that's provoking and entrapping them to rely on their carnal natures when humans are being carnal towards them. This is simply a higher level of faith to grow one's mustard seed towards: Mark 4:30-32, that one's life would reflect a New Covenant, Isaiah 40:11, mindset towards animals rather than a Luke 10:19, Psalm 91 Old Testament mindset towards animals, for those who'd try to expand the coverage of Luke 10:19 beyond what it's clearly talking about with spiritual wickedness that we do continue to tread upon in the New Testament for the whole duration of their spiritual wickedness; they're under our feet in Ephesians 1:22-23, we're not under their's! But this isn't supposed to be our normal lifestyles towards animals who must enter into the liberties of the children of God and neither hurt nor destroy, nor be hurt nor destroyed per Isaiah 11:2-9 as a part of the Hosea 2:18 Covenant they have with us through the Blood of Christ Jesus!

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2
Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
