Animals Know the Spirit World
The Bible speaks of animals as having the ability to see the spirit world – or in some cases sense it. Balaam’s donkey is a good example in Numbers 22:21-35. “….And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way…..Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam.”
Children can sense and sometimes see the Spirit world. So many have imaginary friends that are most likely spirit entities protecting the children, as Jesus said, “their angels always behold the face of God.” This is because children are born without guile, because the knowledge of “law” is not in them.
“Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven” (Matt.18:10)
So “sin” is not accounted to very young children, where there is “no law.” In other words, children act up because of their sinful nature, but the very young are WITHOUT guilt, because they are unaware that there is a law, so says Romans 4:15
“…for where no law is, there is no transgression”
So, children are good at detecting the type of spirit attached to people, as well as animals.1⃣
When we are adults, most of us lose our spiritual sight. There are exceptions, such as
•Enoch, who “walked with God, and he was not; for God took him” (Gen.5:24)
•Elijah, who was taken up in a chariot in 2 Kings 2:11-12 (him & Elisha both saw)
•Elisha and his servant. But the servant’s eyes had to be opened (2 Kings 6:17)
•Jesus saw the spirits attached to people & could read their motives (Matt.9:4)
There will be a group at the End, which will have their eyes opened – the 144,000. They will be as children, “without guile” (Rev.14:1). It is not because there is “no law” – it is because law cannot “work its wrath” in the presence of grace fully accepted by those sealed through faith (Romans 4:8 “Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin).
“Grace” is another word for “power.” God gives us “power” over sin – to overcome sin. Those who have allowed Christ to remove their sin, will be the only ones left on Earth to walk it and still live to see Jesus coming. Because Paul said in Hebrews 9:26-28
“….in the END of the world hath He appeared to PUT AWAY sin…So Christ was ONCE offered TO BEAR the SINS of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the SECOND time WITHOUT SIN unto salvation”
Even as Jesus has told us in the LAST chapter of the LAST book of the Bible, in Revelations 22:10-12
“…for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and MY REWARD is WITH Me, to give EVERY man according as his WORK shall be”
The 144,000 will be as Elijah, and walk with God, as well as see Him. Except, Elijahjjjn is ‘s walk was with God’s Son, the pre-incarnate Christ.
The 144,000 will walk with the Father, as well as all those who lived at the time of the 3rd & also LAST angel’s message (of Rev.14:1-3, 6-13; 18:1-6). The Father will arrive on Earth (in secret) before His Son reaches us (my opinion).
There will be a special resurrection before the really big resurrection. We will get to meet the pioneers of the modern Church, as well as our loved ones who help give the LAST ANGEL’s message (Rev.14:9,13)
Jesus set the precedent, by opening up the graves of some of the dead saints, which walked on this earth with Jesus before going up to heaven in Matthew 27:50-53. The 144,000 will have a similar experience as did Jesus, except without death. Because if they were to die, then Jesus’ words in John 11:25-26 would be made of none-effect.
When Jesus was on the cross dying, the Father had veiled Himself in darkness, in order that He might draw Himself ever closer to Jesus, as He hung dying. Though Jesus could not sense the Father’s Presence (Luke 23:44-45).
This will be a similar experience of those living on Earth in the Final days before Jesus arrives. The Father will draw Himself close to this special group, as they (like Jacob) grope for forgiveness of sin, and struggle with God for a blessing (Gen.32:24-30 and Jer.30:7-9; Mark 13:24-26)
“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee [as a rainbow of light]” (Isaiah 60:2)
Revelation 8:1 says, “…there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour” – this indicates that everyone left Heaven to come to Earth, including our Heavenly Father. The “half an hour” is a prophetic “hour” that translates to seven (7) days
“But in those days, AFTER that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken [in that The Father walks through ‘heaven’ & it is ‘shaken’].
“And THEN shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven” (Mark 13:24-27)
The victory of the 144,000 will finally vindicate The Father and the Son, who have always maintained that the human family is capable of living on this Earth WITHOUT sin, and without seeing death, which will be the true “firstfruits” of those who developed from seed to the fully blossomed plant, to the bearing of ripened fruit (Rev.14:1-15).
Habbakkuk 1:12 speaks of this “vindication”
“Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we [144,000] shall not die. O LORD, thou hast ordained them [144,000] for judgment [to vindicate God’s name]; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction” – that is, to “correct” the wrong doctrines proprogated by Satan.
The 144,000 are set in the Earth, to:
—vindicate God, and to prove that there can be a generation
—that lives without sin, and also to
—correct the misconceptions of the gospel.
Jesus can then FINALLY harvest this fruit to take back to His Father for a sweet savor (Mark 4:26-29; compare Genesis 27:27)
There will be another special resurrection of the men “also which pierced him” as Jesus said in Revelation 1:7 and also promised in Matthew 26:63-64.
This is so those wicked men can see the triumphal ride of KING Jesus upon His white steed, as a victorious conqueror coming for His captives. This will be quite different than His entry into Jerusalem on a lowly donkey.
“…And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven”
Animals are a good judge of one’s heart. And, they are also good at assessing a person’s needs. It’s possible that they may see someone who needs their company, thus gravitate towards them 🐰🐶🐱🐹🐷🐢🐥🐴
1⃣ my father took a black lab into his home, when he bit a man arriving at an assisted living home. The lab had been in that home for nearly 10 years and never bit anyone. All the residents loved the dog. But for insurance reasons they asked dad if he would take him. Dad said yes, and he and I agreed that there must have been something wrong with the man (and NOT the dog, Jake).
thank you for your “like” or “comment” – it helps to know that somebody is reading “some” (?) stuff I post❗️Thanks again🙆
