The Stork, The Turtledove, The Crane, The Pismire, The Ox, The Sparrows, And The Lilies Of The Field

     Everyone, take a good look at the stork, turtledove, and crane above and open your bibles to Jeremiah 8:7 which reads Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times, and the turtledove and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming. But my people know not the judgment. Animals and nature sometimes have more wisdom and knowledge than people. Romans 13:11 reads And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast off the works of darknesss, and let us put on the armour of light. Like nature and animals we need to always be ready for Jesus to return like a thief in the night.  Even the mountains, hills, rocks and trees know how to praise Jesus. Let us all bless the Lord at all times and have his praise continually be in our mouths. Isaiah 55:12 reads and you should shout for joy when you read this: For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Don't let a rock cry out for you. Be like Brother Bob and shout louder for Jesus as God than the rocks.

     Now look at the picture of the pismire or ant above and open your bibles to Proverbs 6:6 which reads Go to the ant, thou sluggard, consider her ways and be wise which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer and gathereth her food in the harvest. You can learn from ants. They don't need a king to rule them. They all seem to work together with Jesus as their king and all of them are humble and try not to be noticed or seen as an open show to the world. Finally, they are not lazy and get things done for Jesus. This reminds me of the warning Solomon gave against laziness in Proverbs 23:21 which reads For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty; and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags. Let's all get busy for Jesus like the ants and do what Mark 16:15 says And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel (the message of Jesus crucified) to every creature.

     Now, look at the picture of the ox above and open your bibles to Isaiah 1:3 which reads The ox knoweth his owner and the ass his master's crib. But Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Saint the ox above might not look too bright but that ox knows his master Jesus. Saint reading this Do you know Jesus to be God and Lord in your life. Isaiah 58 tells me as a preacher to Cry out and lift up my voice as a trumpet and show my people their transgressions and the house of Jacob their sins. If an ox above knows who his master is we all should know Jesus as our Lord. I cry out for you saint and pray in Jesus name that all who read this blog will do what Romans 10:9 says and get saved by confessing Jesus as Lord everywhere with no shame on the job, bus, and even at Walmart and believe in their hearts that Jesus was raised from the dead.

     Now everyone look at the picture above of the sparrows and open your bibles to Matthew 6:26 which reads Behold the fowls of the air; for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? I've always been amazed at how birds just trust Jesus every day for food and birds do not store any food in storehouses. The bird just puts his beak in the ground each day and trusts Jesus for food. It reminds me of when the manna fell from the sky to feed the children of Israel. Moses told the people to just gather a days worth of manna and that if they stored the manna for future use the manna would stink and breed worms. Some of the people disobeyed Moses and the extra manna began to stink, breed worms, and become useless. Saints like the birds lets not worry about tomorrow and trust Jesus each day to preserve and keep us alive. Let's all claim for ourselves today Psalm 121:7-8 which reads The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil; he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

     And finally, take a look above at the beautiful picture of the lilies of the field and open your bibles to Matthew 6:28 which reads And why take ye thought for raiment (clothing)? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin; And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Flowers to me are one of the most awesome things Jesus created. You can learn from watching them. Flowers are not bothered by wind rain or storms. The flower says storm I will not let you stop me from becoming beautiful, blossoming, and smelling good. Every winter I see my roses and lilies in front of my apartment seem to disappear. But in the spring and summer the roses and lilies open up brightly and smell so beautiful. Saints learn a lesson from the flowers and 2 Corinthians 4:8 which reads We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed. We are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.

      I hope you all enjoyed this blog on how animals and nature know Jesus. Lord Jesus like in Psalm 148 let us join with this list of things that eternally praise Lord Jesus forever. The list of the praisers in Psalm 148 is as follows: Heavens, heights, angels, hosts, sun, moon, stars of light, dragons, deeps, fire, hail, snow, vapours, stormy wind, mountains, hills, fruitful trees, cedars, beasts, all cattle, creeping things, flying fowl, kings, all people, princes, judges, young men, maidens, old men, children, and let everything that hath breath praise ye the Lord Jesus. Remember feel free to post your comments to this new blog. This blog is a dream come true for Brother Bob.
