9. Along the same lines, when considering the millennium, we read in Isaiah chapter 11 vs 6-9 about Isaiah's prophetic vision of the millennium. He tells us that the "lion will eat straw" and "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." If we are to not eat meat in the millennium, as the scriptures suggest, do you think that the Word of Wisdom was given as a preparatory diet for what is to come? If it was intended for "the weakest of saints" would it be fair to say that eventually we will be asked to live something even greater?
