A Glimpse of the New Creation – Isaiah 11:6-9

Entry #7 from The 20 (+) Creation Stories in the Bible.
There are many places in the Bible that can inform our understanding of how we all came into existence. This series is for your enjoyment.

"A little child shall lead them" by William Strutt (British, 1825–1915)

Artist – William Strutt (British, 1825–1915)

A little Child Will Lead Them

The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
and a little child will lead them.
The cow will feed with the bear,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The infant will play near the cobra’s den,
and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.
They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea.

– Isaiah 11:6-9


The rest of Isaiah chapter 11 is an amazing prediction of the Messiah. Because this post is focused on Creation, I have not written about that. To read about the Branch of Jesse click the following link – Read Isaiah 11.

  2. Isaiah 53 is an awesome and most clear prophecy not yet understood by many Jews. I wait for the fulfillment of prophecies of the opening of eyes. In God’s time, a time known only to Him.

  4. “The infant will play near the cobra’s den,
    and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.”

    The above scripture implies the absence of enmity. When someone has reached their fullness in Christ (perfection, maturity), enmity is done away with.

    After Adam sinned against God in the Garden of Eden, there was enmity between the serpent and the woman, there was enmity between the man and the woman and there was enmity between man and creation.

    Romans 8: 18-23: “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”

    Take up your cross and die daily and you can attain spiritual perfection in this lifetime. The power of the Gospel is to be able to overcome sin in this life (“. . .the glory which shall be revealed in us”).

    I Corinithians 4: 20: “For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.”
