New and Unlikely Friends by KJB-Believer-2014 New and Unlikely Friends by KJB-Believer-2014
UPDATE August 12, 2014 - The Scripture below is now from the KJV.

This is inspired by the lovely text from Isaiah 11:6-9

6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.

9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.


It's about what the world will look like when Jesus' millennial reign begins; the curse that Adam's sin brought upon the world will end and there will be peace where there was formerly violence and animosity. I look forward to Jesus' return and reign in this world, and the end of evil.

Adorable, and with a gorgeous message. :D I don't remember where I saw that part of the bible lately...maybe it was a book that was left at our house...? But I did see it recently, oddly enough, and I liked the sound of it.

Although a lion eating straw (and enjoying it?) is hard to imagine. Although the way my cats eat my spider plants....I mean, it's not impossible. :lmao:

Awesome art, as always, dude!

...oh, and what is a "cockatrice"? I've heard of it, but I thought it wasn't a real animal. And I have no idea what it is even supposed to look like. xD

Thanks ^.^ I actually drew this back in February, but I resubmitted it because of the update. I looked up that word, and apparently it's a medieval word for a horned viper.

I shoulda gone to Wikipedia. I looked on Google images and found something VERY different from that. xD

Yeah, I think you'll get some kind of mythical creature or something like that xD. I was able to find a good definition here actually:
dictionary.reference.com/brows…
Apparently, it can be a legendary monster, OR a deadly serpent.

AHA! I very vaguely remembered that it had something to do with a chicken's egg and a basilisk. xD I think I read about it in a book on mythical creatures a loooong time ago.

It's a cool-looking thing, both the mythical version, and the deadly version.

Thanks ^.^ The world will really be a wonderful place when Jesus begins His millennial reign soon. I don't think the world is a wonderful place today though because it's still under sin, and the curse back from Genesis 3, which is why I really look forward to that glorious future :squee: ! It's in that time when there will be REAL peace ^.^
