    Chickens come home

    Growing up on my grandpa's farm, I was always around chickens. We had chickens of every color, kind and shape. From big Brahma and Rhode Island laying hens, To those little tiny BB Red and dominecker banty roosters that thought they were the meanest critters on the farm.
    It was truly a blessing being on that farm and around those chickens, Did you know real chicken nuggets are NOT square?
    First time I ate at Burger King, I was like this just ain't right???

    I remember grandma sometimes would often rush out taking her broom and begin shooing them off the porch. {Us kids got shooed out of the house back then as well, There wasn't no laying around the house and watching t.v.}
    If it was raining, You was told that "Oh you won't melt and got sent off anyway.
    That was fine by me as I would rather be outside in the fresh air, In the mud and getting dirty and besides there is always something fun to do on a farm.
    {Sometimes even things that were not even allowed, Like taking the tractor through the pond chasing bullfrogs but we will not discuss that here :sorry:}

    One can learn a lot of life lessons from being around animals, Plus they are great fun to watch as well.
    Every morning just after daylight one of us would go open the hen house and let out the chickens, This was usually a big kid's job of course. We were in charge of the small livestock and gathering eggs and the like.
    The chickens were very excited to get out every morning at feeding time when they got their daily allowance of corn, laying pellets or scratch grain, However no chicken would leave that barnyard until they had their morning grain, After that they would start to slowly scratch around and venture out.
    Some would scratch and work digging away for worms and bugs and eventually move down toward the woods and be out of sight and gone for the whole day.
    Probably trying for the most part to avoid the little hillbilly with the lever action BB gun that was supposed to only shoot field mice and barn rats. {But again, We will not talk about that. :D}

    Others would head for the house and they would stay around the porch picking away, These I considered to be "welfare" birds because granny would often throw out scraps from the dinner table and they were right there waiting on the free handout.
    " Easy and completely free, Just no loitering or you got the broom".
    There is one interesting fact about chickens that you can set your watch by and that is that at around 4 pm every day those birds would start making their way back toward the henhouse and the security of the roost.
    They knew that that dark was approaching and they certainly didn't want to be left outside after the hen house door was shut Because things that were wild and wicked moved in the darkness and they needed to be encased in safety and elevated above the danger.
    They had learned that roost was a safe haven and it is where they would always return.

    I have told this story to you today simply because I am concerned about many people in false doctrinal cults of today.
    I am scared for those of whom have innocently based their trust and salvation on a man's truths instead of God's
    Many have been misled by certain "wolves in sheeps clothing" who minister solely what people seek to hear, instead of gospel truth. They preach a gospel that "feels good" or gives "spiritual highs" or promises lifestyle gains that are not even biblical.

    Some groups have strayed far far away from God's Holy Word and they have gone their own way and do not even realize they are in a heretical situation.
    This is very serious, as the Lord is coming soon to shut the door on this wicked and darkened world that we are living in presently.
    Some need to be doing their very best to direct our spiritual lives back toward Him before it is to late friends.
    John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Some church bodies have gotten way out on the fringes and they need to come back to the truth of the Word of God before it is to late.
    2 Cor 11:31 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

    We are told that in the last days, There will be a falling away, NOT a falling into!!

    People need to stop depending solely on the man speaking on the stage and start looking down at the bible pages and see what it says for itself. It will speak volumes to you as it is God's divine voice spoken directly through holy men and prophets of old.
    Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
    Friends; God will never lead you astray, However a man may, Even unintentionally
    So do not place your faith in man, but only in the Lord.
    2 Timothy 2:15 - Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
