Matthew 10:29-30 reveals that some souls are of more value to Yahweh than others. “Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. But even the hairs of your head have all been counted.”
But He knows even when a sparrow’s soul has left its physical body and returned. Yet, He places a higher value on human souls. Everything has its place in creation. He created all things for a purpose. An animal, nor an insect can worship Him. They are of lessor value in His eyes, but they are nonetheless part of creation. And from Jesus’ own words at the prescribed Scripture, he notes that Yahweh knows even when those of a lessor value have departed the physical plane for the return home. It is because He owns all of creation. You, me, all of us, we are here because of His Will. It is a kindness on His part that any of us exist.
When you kill, you are killing something that belongs to Him. But you are permitted to kill under certain circumstances. You can kill in self-defense. You can kill because the lower creation, that of insects are acting as pests. You can kill an animal or a human if they are trying to physically harm you or someone else. He gives you the right to protect your life and that of others. It is the wanting of killing for no reason that He will call you into account. Judge your own actions in all that you do, for He certainly will call an accounting if you are in error of judgment.
