People resemble animals!
What had Jesus to say about a fox and chickens? There are important warnings and lessons for you and me in what He said.
Jesus was never popular with everyone. For example, neither Herod nor the Pharisees wanted Jesus around. They knew Jesus' teachings would show up their evil ways. In their own cunning ways they wanted to capture and control people's minds and lives.
"Some Pharisees came to Jesus and said, ‘Leave this place and go somewhere else. Herod wants to kill you.'"
Herod was like a cunning fox that wanted to frighten off his rival and have everything his own way!
Jesus replied, "Go tell that fox, ‘I will drive out demons and heal people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.'"
Jesus would not be put off from His good work by the evil king - He would continue to demonstrate His power over demons and diseases! And, nothing or no-one was going to stop Jesus doing the most important work He had come to do. He had come to die at Jerusalem for our sins so as to become the Saviour for mankind.
Then He would be able to bring together all those who would trust in Him as their Saviour and make them His own special Family - His "Church".
Today the true Gospel of Jesus Christ has still many rivals - cunning men and religions who deceive people in order to have control of their minds and lives. Watch out for such "foxes"; they will want to keep you from knowing and believing that Jesus is the ONLY PRIEST AND SAVIOUR God has for mankind today.
Instead they will want you to trust in them, and obey their religion, in order to receive peace and absolution of sin from them - and they might even claim to be able to do this "in Jesus' name"!!
Nothing would keep Jesus from His "goal" in Jerusalem - there He would lay down His own life as a sacrifice for your sins and mine.
But He knew that He would be rejected as Saviour by the very people He loved and wanted to save.
As Jesus thought about what the people of Jerusalem would soon do to Him He cried out, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!"
The people of Jerusalem, like foolish chicks, were turning from the salvation offered to them by Jesus Christ and becoming the victims of evil and deceptive ‘foxes' of false religious leaders and evil rulers!
Don't you behave like a foolish chick and turn away from the only God and Saviour. Jesus is your only hope!
One day, very soon I believe, Jesus will come again and every one will realise then that He is the blessed One they should have trusted in - but it will be too late then!
Trust in Jesus now for forgiveness of your sins and for His protection and safety; then you will not fear His return but will eagerly be looking forward to it.
Read about the people who resemble animals in Luke 13:31-35.
