God’s Fastest Land Animal—a Work of Art

If you enjoy nature and nature photography like I do, you’ll love this. And relax...no blood is spilled.

I look forward to the New Earth when animals will do what they do out of pure pleasure—which is how our dog Maggie spends most of her days even now. :)  I love how technological advancements and human creativity allow us to see these creatures in action with breathtaking clarity, as never before.

“The wild beasts will honor me” (Isaiah 43:20).

I look forward to the promised new world, when:

The cow will feed with the bear,
    their young will lie down together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox. (Isaiah 11:7)

“The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
    and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
    and dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
    on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord. (Isaiah 65:25)

Now, watch this cheetah RUN at about 70 miles an hour, to the glory of its creator. (The video is 7 minutes, but if you only have 2 minutes, watch that much. You’ll be glad you did.)
