Matthew 24:28 ‘Wherever there is a dead body, there the vultures will flock.’ (JB Phillips Translation)
The more I look at the end times that we are in, the more I see that we must be close to our LORD and Savior Yeshua, Jesus the Christ in order to survive. If there is repentance necessary from works of the flesh and idols of gold and stones, we must forsake them. We must distance ourselves from ‘dead’ works. If our minds and hearts are not in tune with the Almighty Creator, we are, in effect, a dead body waiting to be devoured. We must turn our hearts to God and be in a right relationship with Him. A Christian is one who has a relationship with the Creator on a daily basis. It starts with thankfulness which is where we enter His courts with praise. This God has destined each one of us for a time such as this.
A scary example which happened to Jen and I when we were hiking on the Golon Heights at Gamla, We got very tired as we had climbed a bit of a hill after a 45 minute hike so we laid down on this huge flat rock looking up toward the sky. There were vultures circling overhead and we closed our eyes for a short break. When Jen opened her eyes, there was a vulture just above her hovering over her inanimate body. It did not take but a split second to show that bird that there was still a lot of life left in her body. You might call it a wake-up call.
