…in the original creation, all animals were vegetarians (Gen. 1:30); this will be restored during the Millennium
…animals will no longer hurt or destroy (Isa. 11:9). There will be no bloodshed in nature.
…the whole Earth will be “full of the knowledge of the LORD” (Isa. 11:9)
…after the Millennium, God will destroy the universe with fire in order to make way for a new creation. He will create us new heavens and a new Earth (2 Peter 3:7-13)—as beautiful and wonderful as the original paradise God created for Adam and Eve and all humans—maybe even better.

The Millennium is the future thousand-year reign of Christ on Earth, which some Christians believe is described in the Bible (Isaiah 35 and elsewhere). It will be a time of wonderful peace, joy, and blessing. (Other Christians have different beliefs regarding end-time events.)
Isaiah 35:1,2,7 declares that desert and wilderness areas will flourish with plant life. This will occur because “water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert” (Isaiah 35:6). Evidently the underground supply of water will be changed to allow abundant surface water and springs.
Rain will also increase in areas that used to be very dry, This may make the world more like it was at the time of the Garden of Eden.
This region will experience a special weather protection, according to Isaiah 4:5-6. Perhaps a supernatural canopy will cover the city, providing shade from the sun and shelter from the rain.
Whatever the case, the world will be filled with wonderful blessings. Future weather forecasts will be good every day. [ NEXT: Read the right column ]
