FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:
THE DISCIPLINE IN DARKNESS & TRIAL BRINGS OUT THE BEST IN BIRDS.
“Even the stork in the heavens knows her appointed times; and the turtle dove, the swift, and the swallow observe the time of their coming. But My people do not know the judgment of the Lord.” Her. 8:7, NKJV.
God’s ways are not our ways (Isa. 55:8). There were more birds, both clean and unclean, that entered the typical ark of safety and were saved then there were of the long-lived yet wicked antediluvians. Yes indeed! More dumb animals saved that those made in the image and likeness of the Creator! Truth, most of the time really stranger than fiction, i.e., to those who believe fiction not the truth. We cannot love and serve both and be saved like the dumb birds. It is either or the other, God or the mammon of fear, unbelief, doubt and love of the world and the things of the world.
