We are all born sinners with sinful natures - the peacock represents pride, the snake represents cunning, the tiger represents evil, and the pig represents filth - and we need to be redeemed. Jesus Christ took our judgment for our sin by dying on the cross in our place; through the cross, the healing power of the cross restores soul and body. The eternal life that Jesus bestows on everyone who believes in him, in the victory of Jesus on the cross – is something we await on the last day. As Saint Paul says, it will come “in an instant, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible” (1 Cor 15:52). Nevertheless, though the ultimate healing of our bodies must await that final day.
