This morning, I watched a heartless squirrel invade a peaceful robin’s nest… and annihilate the babies in a matter of seconds.
The mom and dad robins put up the best fight they had, flying high, then diving at this agent of terror, squawking and flapping… they repeated the routine several times as the squirrel raced down the tree and into the back woods with one or two peeping chicks between his grinding teeth!
Last year, I watched a blue jay capture a live adult robin and fly him from one tree to another, then back into the woods, while the weaker robin resisted to no avail.
My heart is broken for these robins, the most peaceful birds in my back yard habitation… yet they are facing annihilation by these violent creatures of terror.
Where is my pellet gun? I’m infuriated when bloodthirsty rodents (and birds who prey on their own species) take innocent lives… IN MY BACKYARD!
I wonder if this is how God feels when radical Islamic terrorist organizations feed on the innocent babies of the world? I wonder if this is how God feels when bloodthirsty extremists vow for the annihilation of Jews and Americans?
This mornings squirrel invasion of the robin’s nest made me think about how it must be for so many Israeli’s today. As radical Islamic leaders (like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) are developing nuclear bomb capability and vowing to “wipe Israel off the map,” my heart breaks for my jewish allies.
I am pro-Israel. God is pro-Israel.
Jeremiah 31:3 Long ago the Lord said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.
Zechariah 2:6-9 The Lord says, “Come away! Flee from Babylon in the land of the north, for I have scattered you to the four winds. Come away, people of Zion, you who are exiled in Babylon!” After a period of glory, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies sent me against the nations who plundered you. For he said, “Anyone who harms you harms my most precious possession. I will raise my fist to crush them, and their own slaves will plunder them.” Then you will know that the Lord of Heaven’s Armies has sent me.
Genesis 12:2-3 I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.”
In our attempt to follow the teaching of Christ and “love our enemies,” we must never stop defending the innocent people of our nation and world. As a nation, it is good for us to stand against terror like we have. Thought there are casualties and the war on terror seems to be never ending… to do nothing is to concede our world to tyranny and oppression.
Proverbs 31:8-9 Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.
According to biblical prophesy (Ezekiel 38 & 39), God is going to pull out His pellet gun at some point. Until that day, I will side with Israel in wholehearted alliance… and I pray that my country (and other Israeli allies) will do the same, and other countries will join us. (photo by Charles Johnson)
This is my blog for the day. I hope it inspires you in a many ways! Pray for Israel, speak good of her people. Pray for victory in the war on terror… recommit yourself to pray for every nation standing on the side of freedom. Pray for a change of heart in the terrorist leaders and followers. Pray for the victims and their family’s… for all of the suffering, grieving ROBIN’S throughout the world today.
I just finished praying for everyone in my social network. I wish you a most triumphant day! With much love…
