GOD’S WORD FOR MARCH 16 ~ ~Revelation 19:17~ ~ “Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in midheaven, “Come, assemble for the great feast of God,”

Who cleans up the seal and penguin colonies? The snowy sheathbill bird! He is white, and looks like a cross between a pigeon and domesticated chicken. It lives with the seals and penguins during the breeding season, and eats dead seals, penguins and all their droppings.

These birds are one of many of creation’s janitors….the clean up crew. They are like vultures, eagles, hawks, and other birds that are found in all areas of the world.

Can you imagine how much disease and disgust there would be if these animals weren’t around to clean up all over the world?

The Word tells us about the huge battle at the end of time, and it says the birds will feast, and that is to clean up after the battle.

Revelation 19:21

“And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.”

It isn’t something we want to think of, but there is a lot in this world we don’t want to think of. There is a lot God Himself doesn’t want to think of, but His great Holiness and Justice demands it, as well it should for us.

We see evil all around us. Yet, so many times, so many Christians are just going about their lives, trying not to think of those who are unsaved.

Just as the physical world must be cleaned up, so a life filled with devotion to our Great Savior will clean up many lives that are now tainted as grossly with sin as the battlefields of war are with bodies.

But how much do we think about it? How much do we spread the Good News that we know? How

much are we trying to pull people out of the horrors of living in sin?

We are called to be the spiritual janitors in this failing and falling world, alongside Jesus Himself.

Mark 16:15

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation… every creature.”

Time is running out, and eternity is forever.
