Do you ever try to imagine some of the creatures we read about that are in heaven? Beasts with six wings, full of eyes?
Will that look anything like this:
5And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. 6And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 7And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. 8And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. 9And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, 10The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. (Revelation 4).
Maybe the peacock was somewhat modeled after these heavenly beasts? I look forward to all the new things we will see and learn in heaven. Sometimes, I like to just lie in bed at night before I go to sleep, and just think of that moment! I know that some day, and soon, we will experience this glory, and I just cannot wait to see my Savior! Life in this corrupt vale of tears, all it’s pain and disappointments will fall away…….
