The Final Gathering Together

It could be said that if the first book of the Bible is about Paradise lost, then the last book is about Paradise regained. The worship taking place in God’s Kingdom described in the book of Revelation, shows that hostility between animals is at an end; and animals unite with humans and angels in offering reverence to a common Creator.

We see four living creatures leading the worship in Revelation, Chapters 4 and 5. These representatives of the animal world are a wild mammal (a lion), a domestic mammal (an ox), a primate (an animal with the face of a human) and a bird (an eagle). Nature is clearly represented offering praise and honour to its Creator, as it has always done.
