. A Priest sounds the alarm on a shofar




Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? (Acts 4:17)

Chicken Little, while sitting under an oak tree, had an acorn fall on his head. Looking up to see what had fallen upon him, he was able to see nothing but sky. Since there was nothing but sky above him, he deduced that it must have been the sky that had fallen upon his head. Putting one with two, Chicken Little deduced that the sky must be falling, and that he and everyone else was in great danger.

Chicken Little, being the alert and conscientious youngster he was, traveled up and down the countryside proclaiming the news that the sky was falling. One by one other barnyard creatures took up the call and joined in the march.

We look around us and we see signs of the end of the world. It has been this way since I was very young, ducking under my desk to protect myself from an atom bomb blast and searching out what bomb shelter I would occupy when the alarm was sounded in earnest.

Jesus warned His followers 2,000 years ago that the sky would fall, and in the Book of Revelation we see that very event depicted.

Hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus the prophets were telling of the sky falling, and this in great detail.

Noah was told to prepare for the heavens when they opened up and allowed the sky to fall on all the inhabitants of the world. And before this Cain discovered to his hurt that even brothers can bring the sky upon one's head, and this from behind.

There has been a cry of warning that the sky is falling since the beginning of mankind. And indeed, the sky has fallen, and on many occasions. In times past it was bold headlines that announced the day the sky would fall, and before the computer it was bearded men carrying signs or standing on soap boxes that warned of the impending descent of the heavens.

I have had an acorn fall upon my head. I've been proclaiming the danger we are all in, but to no avail. I find that there is no one, or at least very few others who have been sitting under oak trees. I stand alone, being the only one with a bump on his head as evidence that the sky is falling.

Elijah, in the Book of Kings, lamented that he and he alone stood up for God and proclaimed His sovereignty. The queen and all the nation was seeking him to kill him. He and he alone had experienced the falling of the acorn. God told Elijah that He had reserved 7,000 others who had not bowed the knee to the false gods of the nations around them. I'm sure there are many thousands of others in the world today who have had acorns fall on their head, and as have I, looked up and seen nothing but the Heavens above.

Someday, I suspect, God will bring all those with acorn-shaped bumps together in order to compare notes, enabling us to put our pieces of the puzzle together in order to learn what God is desiring to tell us. In the meantime I'll continue to hold up my sign, stand on my soap box, and proclaim the falling of the sky.

18Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. (1Cor 3:)

27And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it. (Dan 8:)

3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. (Dan 12:)

4And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. (Rev 10:)

15And it came to pass, when I, even I Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. 16And I heard a man's voice between the banks of Ulai, which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision. (Dan 8:)

1And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. (Rev 5:)

8And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. 9And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? 10And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. (Luke 8:)
