WHERE did the phrase...the lion will lay down with the lamb come from?????...Just simply curious..
It actually reads:
Isaiah 11:6 The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
and a little child will lead them.
LOL , Yes it is our tradition to place the lion and the lamb together. Its a astrological riddle, Leo and Aries, or Summer and Spring... or
Easter and the Revelation Throne..
The original verse adds the wolf and the leopard and the goat and the calf..
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead themů
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. (Isaiah 11:1-9)
The knowledge of the Lord will spread throughout the earth, life giving waters coming to those who live the Kingdom within their own hearts, connected to the Father in Spirit and Truth as the only direct conduit for truth source, the only true way to heal the nations, is to become one with God and let go and surrender to Father/life source within...
Revelation 2:7 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
Eating from this tree which brings life, is a gift to those who overcome. Overcome what?
Overcoming all that caused you to become seperated from GOD...forgetting to look within ourself for Him. He never left us, we left Him. Home is where the heart is, we have been home all along. We have to become quiet,still and listen...God is in us.
We went looking outside of paradise for our own desires, our own truth, eating from the tree of knowledge of others doing the work for us, when the truth is within us. There are just way too many Trees of Knowledge trying to lead the blind, keeping us caught in their nets. (religions)
We have to look to Him alone to break open the 7 seals in us, to have the right to partake from the tree of life. We have to look to Him alone, here his voice....a surrendering and have faith He will lead us out of ourself...our fallen state. Stop looking to man made religions to be spoon fed, truth mixed with lies.
"Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk WITHOUT money and without cost.
Come to the waters within, and be taught freely.
