There are days when you feel a heavy weight. This Emu is interesting indeed. It looks like it has a heavy weight on its back, but it is part of God’s design for this specific creature.

God is good that before an attack is waged on the believer, He warns them about something that the enemy has planned (Acts 9:23-25, Matthew 2:12-13). His intent is to thwart believers from faithfully doing work for the Lord. Though the Canada Geese are known to be faithful creatures, this illustrates what happens within the body of Christ. Oftentimes, the enemy uses those who profess to be in the church to do great damage.

Those who use the gospel for gain (Jude 1:12) not only lead people astray, they become the standard for what Christianity is to those who are seeking to know about the faith.

They profess to know God, but by their actions they deny Him. They are detestable, disobedient, and unfit for any good deed.

Titus 1:16

Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have departed from the truth. They say that the resurrection has already taken place, and they destroy the faith of some.

2 Timothy 2:17-18

Their teaching will spread like gangrene. –  Something that appeals to the flesh has this effect. Not only that, the enemy makes sure that falsehood is mainstream so that when the truth comes, people are conditioned to reject it (2 Corinthians 4:4).

They say that the resurrection has already taken place, and they destroy the faith of some. – This is talking about the bodily resurrection that takes place when the Rapture occurs (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18). This verse can also apply to those who say that there is no such thing as a Rapture. Those who promote such teachings are clearly going against God’s Word.

Scripture reminds us that in the time we are living in, there will be more shacks than fortresses.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

2 Timothy 2:15
