Infants & Vipers

“And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the young goat,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little boy will lead them.
Also the cow and the bear will graze,
Their young will lie down together,
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.
They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.” Isaiah 11:6-9

Who are these nursing children? Is the resurrection still happening at this point? Will there be children born that hadn’t lived before the Jubilee? Are these the aborted babies come back to life? Jesus says to the Sadducees that there won’t be giving in marriage in the resurrection. He says we will be like angels. But he’s referring to the heavenly resurrection. He also links it to ‘that age’. What age? The Millennium? The Jubilee? After the little season at the end of the Millennium? We can only wonder.
