The day is coming when lion and lamb join together at last, not as fierce predator and succulent prey, but as companions, as joyful equals, in divine tranquility for all eternity. The day is coming when the impossible becomes possible, when peace and unity, truth and justice, love and mercy, beauty and wholeness prevail and endure. The day is coming when there is no more confusion and chaos, no more greed and indifference, no more inequality and injustice, no more hate and destruction, no more corruption and lies, no more sickness and death. The day is coming when God welcomes us, tenderly embraces us and wipes from our faces all our tears and fears. The day is coming when hunger and thirst and separation are no more, when we are dining together at the wedding feast of the Lamb. But the day is today to share heavenly visions of thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. And the day is today for using heavenly visions, to bring healing to earth, to all the people we can, in all the places we can, in all the ways we can, as much as we can, for the kingdom of heaven is within us now.
