Jeremiah 8:7
Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

 

The “stork” is like the crane, but larger in size. They are large birds with long legs, toes webbed at the base, and a strong, straight, pointed bill longer than the head. Two species of the storks are found in Israel. The first species is white in colour, and they are found in pairs over the whole country. The other is black in colour, which live in marshy places and in large flocks. They migrate to Israel periodically – every year during a particular month. Psalm 104:17 refers to their nest-making habits – “Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house

Matthew 6:26
Jesus said, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

 

Jesus asked us to consider the birds of the sky that we may learn to live everyday without worries and fears. Though the birds do not have the ability to sow and reap, Jesus says that God, our Father, feeds all the birds.

Now the Lord turns to us and asks, “Are ye not much better than they?” In other words, we are more precious to God than the birds. He is committed to taking care of His children more than all other creatures on earth...

Psalm 84:3
Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

 

Here we have a beautiful poem or song in which a godly man talks about his joy and enthusiasm of being in God’s house. To express his feelings for God’s house, he uses two birds that he found making nests in God’s house. The birds were a sparrow and a swallow. These little birds made their nests on the altars in God’s house. The psalmist was so amazed to see how these two birds happily found rest in God’s house.

The sparrow has found a house and the swallow a nest for herself. These little birds, by the instinct and direction of nature...

Have you heard of "partridge"? It is the name of a bird; and it appears twice in the Bible. Its Hebrew name in the Old Testament is qôrē' (pronounced ko·ray). This Hebrew name means "caller". A partridge makes a very distinguished ringing call, which echoes from hill to hill in the wilderness of Judea in the early morning.

The partridge belongs to what is known as the "Gallinaceous" group of birds. Gallinaceous birds are birds with plump and heavy bodies, short tails, and short beaks that are adapted for picking up seeds. They normally live on the ground. They prefer to run, and fly only short distances.

Over the last two weeks, we have learned from the Bible that the rainbow not only reminds us about God's graciousness and faithfulness (Genesis 9:11), but also His grandeur and splendour (Ezekiel 1:28).

When the apostle John was given the revelation of future things to come, the Lord showed him the throne in heaven. While describing the scene in heaven, John wrote, "there was a rainbow round about the throne

We learned last week that the rainbow first appeared, according to Genesis 9:12-16, as a sign of God's covenantal promise to Noah that He will never again destroy the whole world by flood. Since that day, people have been able to see it in every part of the world.

Its colours are brilliant and glorious! It is one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth! People, both children and adults alike, feel excited about this amazing phenomenon. One English poet, Wordsworth, captures our feelings when he wrote

One day, when I was a child, I stood looking at a rainbow for a long time until it faded away. Don't you like to watch that multi-coloured arch in the sky? It is wonderful to look at, especially when its brilliant colours are in full array before it becomes dim and vanishes.

In school, you might have learned in your science class that the rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that appears as a spectrum of light in the sky when the sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere...

Psalm 68:19 “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.

Today we have come to church to praise our God. We sing hymns of praise to the Lord, together with all those who love Him. We also give thanks to Him when we pray. If you listen carefully to the prayers offered by the worship leader and by pastor, you will notice that they too praise the Lord's name.

Both children and adults must worship the Lord for the many blessings received from Him. He forgives us our sins; He heals our sicknesses; He answers our prayers; He gives us good health to work and earn a living; He gives us food, etc...

Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

Everything on this earth, no matter how beautiful and glorious it may be, will soon wither and fade away. The things that we have achieved and cherished in life will also vanish from our grip. In other words, nothing of this world endures forever.

All mighty men, who once ruled the world with great power, withered and faded away like the grass and flowers. Those who love and care for us will also soon be gone
