Thoughts on the Birds of the Bible Series

I have been thinking about the Birds of the Bible Series I am working on. Yesterday, we finished our Missions Conference at Faith and was motivated even more to do this blog. Today, while searching the internet for information for my next article, I realized again how many others have done similar blogs. Shades of doubt began to form. So, why am I doing this?
The Lord has helped me to REMEMBER why.
1. The Lord wants us to praise Him and declare His mighty and wondrous works.
Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts. I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty, And on Your wondrous works. (Psa 145:3-5)
2. I love bird watching and am amazed and awed at the how God created the birds. Their beauty, structure, song and habits are amazing. To know that they are under the “curse” along with us, and still they are inspiring.
3. As we sang yesterday, “Little Is Much When God Is In It”. My efforts may be small, and this won’t be a famous blog, but to share with others my love for birds and the Lord is strong.
4. My husband also greatly reassured me.
There are a lot of great websites that teach about the Birds of the Bible and others that are all about birds. I will try to share those sites for your information and try not to “re-invent the wheel.”

  1. I am glad you are doing this blog. It is amazing how much work you have put into this. I have popped in here a time or two, but never seem to have the time to stay long, but I hope to be able to go more thoroughly through your site.
    We are fairly new to birding, only actively beginning this spring, but have fed the birds for a couple years now. We are definitely novices out in the field. That is a whole different thing than watching those out our windows.
    God bless you.

  2. Hi there! Found your site looking for info on birds in the bible…I just wanted to say one thing concerning something you wrote in this post…we are no longer under a curse. Christ came and released us from the curse. The whole, entire reason for His coming and dying for us on the cross was to release us from the curse that came on mankind from the fall of Adam. Plainly stated in Galatians 3:12-14, and many, many other places in the bible. While the earth and those without Christ remain under a curse, we who are redeemed by Jesus are NOT. Thanks for all the good bird info!

    • Yes, Christ has paid the penalty for our sin and was made a curse for us, but we are still living in bodies and a world that is under the curse. Unless we are raptured out, we will die. Death is because of the curse of sin. “It is appointed unto man, once to die and then the judgement.” At the judgment seat of Christ, where Christians will be judged for what we have done after salvation, but the Salvation has been paid for by Christ taking our curse.

      If what you say is true, then why do Christians die? Why do we have sickness and ailments, etc? Why do birds still suffer because of man’s sin? From your interpretation, Christians should have perfect bodies and only sinners should have these cursed bodies that we all are living in right now.

      “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” (Romans 8:19-23 KJV)
