Gnarly Bob’s CHRISTmas
Trees are older and wiser than us humans. So I would like to introduce you to Gnarly Bob. A Tree and a dear friend, filled with wisdom, who knows and waits for his LORDS RETURN to earth.
Listen in and learn…
Gnarly Bob agreed that God made man in His Image and that of course was a great honor. But God made many other things as well, all after their own kind.
He began recounting special times when God had chosen to use his relatives made of wood.
He spoke of the wood that Noah used to build the Ark that contained the remnants of human flesh and the animals. Many of his ancestors had given freely of themselves to be reshaped into a refuge that would carry Gods precious cargo to safety. And oh the honor to have the hand of God touch the mighty door of wood and then close it shut from the outside.
Then thousands of years later Moses was told by God to use Bob’s relatives to make another Ark, the Ark of the Covenant. This was a precious Ark with precious cargo as well. The Ark contained things that God had called His people to remember Him by. It contained the budding staff of Aaron that Moses used to separate the waters for the Nation to cross over. It contained the Manna that the nation of Israel ate as God fed them for 40 years in the wilderness. And it contained the 10 Commandments, carved out of rock, with the very writing from the finger of God upon it. The Ark also had the Mercy Seat on it where the very presence of God sat when He visited the people in the Tent.
What an honor, Bob said to be able to serve the Living God in such a way.
But then tears began to flow from Bob’s one eye. He was visibly shaken, for his limbs were creaking as deep shudders of emotion came over him. Sorry Ernie, but I cannot help but feel humbled when I think of our shining hour as a specie to whom God gave such an exalted honor too.
The Cross…the Cross Ernie…Bob choked up. My ancestors were able to support the Lord as He hung between Heaven and Earth. When they drove those nails into HIM …they drove them into one of us…
