Last night at institute, my institute instructor, Sister Dick, left us with a closing thought to start off next week's discussion. Often times I think that a serpent is a symbol of the devil, however a serpent is actually a symbol of Christ. So, we are in Moses, talking about the plan and war in heaven and about to get to the Garden and Adam and Eve. So, her point was, that Satan had been kicked out of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ's presence. Yet he had the nerve and was arrogant enough to come slithering into the garden, where both of them dwelt, in the appearance of the Savior to tempt Adam and Eve.
Just a little something to get you thinking. I might post more about that topic. Institute was really great last night and I learned a lot! :)
