As the world scrambles to make sense of all the unusual events that have been happening all over the world with fish and birds since the 1st of the year it really made me stop and think at some of the responses including my own.
First – everyone wants a logical safe explanation
Second – even the secular media is getting a little spooked that it may signify something apocolyptic.
Third – am I really ready for the Lord to come?
Here are some scriptures that deal with the subject that I copied off a friends blog:
“I will sweep away the birds of the air and the fish of the sea. The wicked will have only heaps of rubble when I cut man off from the face of the earth, declares the Lord.” Zephaniah 1:3
“Because of this the land mourns, and all who live in it waste away, the beasts of the field and the birds of the air and the fish of the sea are dying.” Hosea 4:3
“ Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come. As fish are caught in cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so men are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them.” Ecclesiastes 9:12
“The fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the beast of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground.” Ezekiel 38:20 “
We know that wickedness in the world has risen to new levels and we know that the whole creation is groaning under the weight of the worlds sins so why are we looking for a logical explanation instead of believing what the bible says is true!
This is what Jesus had to say about it when His disciples asked Him what would be the signs of His return:
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near.
So if the thoughts of these things makes you anxious or afraid do what the Lord said – Look Up – Lift up Your Head and be reminded that Jesus is coming back and it could be very soon! Get ready!
Under His wing
