Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 65:25 which says, “The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent’s food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the Lord.
Who heard of that? The lion and the lamb, sitting and eating together! Well that is the new Jerusalem (aka Heaven), the wolf and the lamb sitting and eating together. In John 10:10 it says that a thief comes to kill and destroy, the devil is a thief. And in Genesis where eve gets deceived, the devil was in the form of a snake. And here it says that the serpents will not harm nor destroy. When he talks about the serpents it means sin and flesh and the devil, we won’t have sin and flesh and the devil won’t be there.
Right now we have to deal with our flesh and the devil, but in Heaven we won’t have flesh or sin or satan. Right now we have to trust in Jesus and His sacrifice for us, because Jesus died for us we can go free from our sins. For them they had someone to look forward to, but for us we have someone to look back to and forward to. Jesus delivered us from our sins, He saved us from them. Although that doesn’t give us a reason or an excuse to sin, we are dead to our sins and alive in Christ, thank you Jesus.
Jesus took our sins on Him and gave us His righteousness.
Are you trusting in Jesus‘ sacrifice for you and for me?
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
