The Holy Spirit is trying to speak to our hearts to return to the first commission God gave humans before the fall--to have dominion over(yorade -which means to come down to; to have communion with and compassion for) the animals. This commission was given in the Garden of Eden before sin entered the world, when all of God\'s creation lived in harmony, and when people and animals ate vegetation.
As we pray the prayer Jesus gave us, \"Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven\", we believe that we have the responsibility to help bring God\'s kingdom on earth.
We believe that Jesus\' death on the cross redeemed the whole world - for those whom He has called and for all life - "God chose to reconcile the whole universe to Himself...to reconcile all things, whether on earth or in heaven, through Him alone" (Colossians 1:15-23).
We believe that we all will give an account to God concerning His creatures. \"Nothing in all creation is hidden from God\'s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account\" (Hebrews 4:13).
We will follow Jesus, the Prince of Peace, more closely, and will become merciful towards the billions of animals who all belong to God, who suffer in factory farms, research laboratories, entertainment (ie. dog racing, cock fighting, circuses, rodeos, etc.), and those animals bred and raised for the fur industry. We will teach compassion for all animals, including the fish in the sea, lakes and streams. We will no longer believe the father of lies, Satan.
We believe that all creation is groaning in labor pains waiting for the revelation of the children of God - hoping to be set free from slavery to corruption (see Romans 8:19-22). We are not the center of the universe, God is, and \"The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made\" (Psalm 145:9).
Be signing this petition, you are joining the movement by the Holy Spirit, to help bring God\'s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven by moving towards avoiding the support animal cruelty in this world. We will not exploit animals for greed and/or violence. God gave laws in the Old Testament for animals to live stress free lives. Jesus came to fulfil the law, and we will follow Him by listening to the Holy Spirit who teaches us what Jesus taught.
Part of loving God is being good stewards of His creation (including animals). We ask all to join us and to teach God\'s ways which are higher than the world\'s ways.
Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus!
