Bible “alive”

Want the Bible to “come alive” to you? Make arrangements to meet the Author

a solid, Bible-believing church is a place He may be. He will not sign His Book for you.

He’ll do better. He will write His name on your heart.

‘Twas an ordinary morning

When he awakened from his sleep.

Just another day to labor

Working with wooly, willful sheep.

He ate whatever broke his fast

(Perhaps a food we don’t know).

Then gathering up his shepherd’s tools

Looked to see what this day would show.

How many head of ranging sheep,

How many stalwart, big-horned rams?

We do not know nor the large ewes,

Nor the number of this year’s lambs.

All followed him out from the cote,

Out o’er the desert’s nearest hill.

Walking and nibbling, nibbling close,

Each animal fed at its will.

For many years he’d done just this –

Tending sheep ‘neath beautiful skies,

Looking for water, toxic weeds,

Mending wounds, preventing bad flies.

Today, sheep and shepherd wandered,

Customary, only routine,

Another rise, another slope,

Another rather-deep ravine.

Then suddenly, somewhere aside,

(Was it to his left or his right?)

Desert was deserted no more,

What a curious, awesome sight.

An un-rare shrub, a common bush,

Was so suddenly attractive.

It, though greening in normal growth,

Held a fire, also now active.

Desert fires kindled by lightening

Were not that uncommon to see.

Old shrub, brush, last year’s dry grasses

Were consumed, and the rare, dead tree.

This shrub was not dead but alive,

Green and healthy, full of new life.

Yet fire (no lightening lately) leaped,

Leaped yet lingered, sharp as a knife.

The fire was real; so was the shrub.

What an unearthly sight he saw.

This he wanted to see, his feet

Obeyed curiosity’s strong draw.

Those feet would soon be un-sandaled.

His ear would hear the voice of God.

His mouth would question His grand name,

As he stood barefooted on bare sod.

Someone else would soon lead these sheep.

Other “sheep” Moses soon led.

Other “sheep” needed a shepherd

To care, to bind when they bled.

And though he was above normal,

Educated “and all that stuff.”

He too needed God’s holy fire,

As much as the bush “in the rough.”

From time to time I see pro-Israel posts and I see anti-Israel posts.

As a student of the Bible allow a reminder of two important verses.  They’re easy to remember; they are only a chapter apart and both are verse 9.  Rev 2.9 “…I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews and are not but are the synagogue of satan.” AND  Rev 3.9 “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of satan, which say they are Jews and are not but do lie…”  Christ shows (twice) there are FALSE Jews. We need Heaven’s wisdom to know the difference – this may well be more important than some readers imagine.  Harken.
