Scriptural Basis: Isaiah 65:17-25
For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth;
The former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.
But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating;
For I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight. …
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox;
But the serpent – its food shall be dust!
They shall not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain, says the Lord.
