The calf and the young lion shall browse together, with a little child to guide them…

I very recently had the following dream:

I saw some children playing in a wading pool. Suddenly everyone became alarmed because a tiger had come and was reclining in the pool. Some children approached it, but it just lay there unconcerned. In awe and wonder, they began to pet it. In another area of the pool there was a polar bear. A group of seals approached it and began to climb on it and play with it. It was completely docile. Then I looked up and there were some people who had been given the ability to fly like angels. It was all very remarkable. When I awoke, I recalled this Scripture passage:

Isaiah 11:
6Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
The calf and the young lion shall browse together,
with a little child to guide them.
7 The cow and the bear shall be neighbors,
together their young shall rest;
the lion shall eat hay like the ox.
8 The baby shall play by the cobra’s den,
and the child lay his hand on the adder’s lair.

I feel this dream is a confirmation of the wonders we will see in the coming era of peace. The passage from Isaiah continues:

9 There shall be no harm or ruin on all my holy mountain;
for the earth shall be filled with knowledge of the LORD,
as water covers the sea.

Thanks be to God! Lord Jesus, thank you for this confirmation. May it give us hope in the days to come. Jesus we trust in you!

  1. Dear friend,
    A similar vision or image has been in my mind for the last couple of weeks – the vision of docile animals, both wild and domesticated, and peaceful human beings co-existing together.(This Lent had been especially trying for me, with unexpected conflicts erupting.)
    Now you have this dream!
    I am trying hard to discern what the Good Lord is saying to me, a very wretched and unhappy sinner.
    Please pray for me. God bless you.

    1. I have been noticing increasing conflict as well; the family is being attacked anew with greater force. Lord have mercy! The dream was very vivid. I think it was meant to give us hope. Come Lord Jesus, Prince of Peace. Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us that our faith may not fail in this violent age.

      Thank you Agnes for your comment. You are in my prayers.

  2. And in our area, very many people who are among the very best in kindness and gentleness and character are being taken to be with the Lord. They have not been older, and it has happened quickly. We have all been amazed at this, and of course saddened to lose them.

  3. Perhaps they are meant to intercede for us. God’s plan is perfect. Jesus we trust in you.

    Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace.

    Holy souls pray for us! Amen.
