6 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, The leopard shall lie down with the young goat, The calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little child shall lead them.
7 The cow and the bear shall graze; Their young ones shall lie down together; And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord As the waters cover the sea.
16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earthHehasgiven to the children of men( the earth, along with all God's gifts is a manifestation of His love and good will towards creation).
Galatians 4:1clues us.
1 Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does notdiffer at all from a slave, thoughhe is master of all, (not mature enough, not enough of God's knowledge, perhaps still do our own works rather than His)
12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation(weeping or grieving) for the king of Tyre(Satan dwelled in him, worked through him), and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Youwerethe seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. (Does this not sound like Adam and Eve?)
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God(it was the home given to the first pair); every precious stone was your covering: the sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold (they were there in the garden to be used however man chose). The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes was prepared for you on the day you were created(Satan was heaven's chief musician but man too has vocal cords, wind pipes with which to praise the Lord).
14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers(Satan was responsible for helping protect God's creation on earth, Adam and Eve were given dominion, responsibility for the welfare of creation); Iestablished you; you wereon the holy mountain of God(Satan was to guard from the supernatural the activities on earth, Adam and Eve were God's government over the planet); you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones (they were meant to exist in harmony).
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, tilliniquity was found in you(just like Eve).
16 “By the abundance of your trading(mankind, because of the enemy's influence, also has amassed fortunes while others live in total poverty) you became filled with violence within(competition results in murder, wars), and you sinned(death was brought to earth's creation); therefore I cast you as a profane thing out of the mountain of God(Satan disobeyed God, was no longer in a place of honor. God's pure government was discontinued with Saul being placed in office); and I destroyed you, O covering cherub, from the midst of the fiery stones(the sword holds man from the garden).
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty(Satan is an angel of light, Babylon, false religion with its beautiful vestments, elegant edifices); you corrupted your wisdomfor the sake of your splendor(this is the wisdom Eve chose, now it is the wisdom of the world); I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, that they might gaze at you(the enemy and all that follow him have already been destroyed in the supernatural).
18 “You defiled your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities(look at the abominations in the world's church!), by the iniquity of your trading(churches are big business); thereforeI brought fire from your midst(your own are your destruction); it devoured you(he reaps punishment for the sins of his protege), and I turned you to ashesupon the earth(the fire of truth burns them)in the sight of all who saw you(those with the insight to see and understand).
19 All who knew youamong the peoples(those who bring homage to Satan or carry out his plan) are astonished at you (that he is really just a defeated creature); you have become a horror(bristle with anger, fear), and shall be no more forever.” ’ ” (forever destroyed!)
Hosea 2:16-20 prophesies of this time.
16 “And it shall be, in that day,” says the Lord, “Thatyou will call Me ‘My Husband,’ (not just call Him husband, but see it, believe it and walk accordingly) and no longer call Me ‘My Master,’ (He is talking to born again Israel, set aside, the remnant out of the remnant, by the tithe Abraham gave to Melchizedek and repossessed by the blood of Christ.)
17 For I will take from her mouth the names of the Baals, and they shall be remembered by their name no more (they will be separated from the world by rebirth).
18 In that day I will make a covenantfor themwith the beasts of the field, with the birds of the air, and with the creeping things of the ground(all creation will be restored). Bow and sword of battle I will shatter from the earth(no more pain or sorrow), to make them lie down safely(they war no more on His holy mountain, there will be safety, shelter and peace).
19 “I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth youto Me in righteousness and justice, in lovingkindness and mercy(through the blood covenant of the Lamb);
20 I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, and you shall know the Lord.
14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He(Jesus)Himselflikewise shared in the same(the Word, God's knowledge was seeded in the womb of Mary that He would be born a man like us), that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetimesubject to bondage.
