I was reading this chapter this morning, and learned something new. I had taken it for granted that because the serpent was cursed when Satan entered it and tempted Eve, that there wouldn’t be any serpents in the New Heaven. But I think I’m wrong 🙂. There will be serpents in Heaven.
“The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 65:25.
Inspiration tells us ~
“To accomplish his work unperceived, Satan employed a disguise. The serpent was one of the wisest and most beautiful creatures. It had dazzling brightness. Resting in the forbidden tree, regaling itself with the delicious fruit, it was an object to arrest attention and delight the eye. Thus in the garden of peace lurked the destroyer.” From Eternity Past 23.2
It was not the serpents fault that Satan chose to use it as the medium to tempt Eve. And for that reason, even though the serpent has suffered a great curse, it will be restored to its original place in Heaven, that of “one of the wisest and most beautiful creatures.”
I am looking forward to seeing them. I don’t know about you, but most people I know don’t like snakes today. I believe because of the curse God put upon them, there is naturally something most of us are born with that causes us to be afraid of and to be leery of snakes. But when Jesus returns and takes us to Heaven, that is all going to change. We won’t remember the dangerous, scary and evil looking snakes we know today…..and instead, Jesus will introduce us (or maybe Adam and Eve will) to “one of the wisest and most beautiful creatures” God ever created.
