The Cockatrice

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.

(Isaiah 59:2-5) KJV

If simple logic tells us that you can’t curse a snake to be limbless, then what was the creature in the garden of Eden? We discussed the Cockatrice on May 11th but at that time we left it hanging as to what the outcome was of the curse which was placed on it.

May 11th – Cockatrices

In the context of our lips speaking lies and separating us from God something caused the Cockatrice, an egg-layer which formerly had legs and wings, to take on the form of a limbless snake. Any guesses?

God cursed the serpent to go on it’s belly, therefore it can’t have been on it’s belly. However, did it’s legs immediately disappear? Probably not.

In this tantalizing nugget from Isaiah above we see that the Cockatrice’ eggs hatch and Vipers come out. Vipers are a synonym for snake which is limbless. It would seem that the curse was manifested in the first and subsequent generations of the Cockatrice’s offspring.

July 1st – The Fall

The fall of man was an effect. The cause was disobedience. We can harmonize scripture with science using cause and effect.
