"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" (Mark 15:34) The other morning, I was half waking up and I heard a chirping sound. Half drowsy, I just knew something sounded odd, but I couldn't figure out what it was. I kept hearing the chirping. I tried to think what it could be. I thought maybe it was the computer, or maybe the cell phone. Yet, as I listened I knew the sound was not coming from any of these things. I got up, and still coming out of a sleep, I tried to figure out what I was hearing. It sounded like it was near the window, so I opened the blind and looked down. When I looked down, I saw a big, black cat. It had something gray in its mouth. I thought it was a mouse, and I did not think to much of it. Then, I realized it was a squirrel. I know its the way it is, that animals prey on each other; but, I did not want to see the squirrel die. I ran outside, and the big cat dropped the squirrel and ran off. The squirrel ran also; but, the squirrel could not run right. He looked like he was trying with all he could, but, everything was not working right. I feared for him. He tried to climb a tree, but he only got a little ways up and he fell back to the ground. It was an intense moment. The squirrel could not get up a tree; I thought maybe I could get some gloves on and do something. I thought, he's been saved out of the cat's mouth, and now he's trying to get to safety, and he cannot. As he was trying to get himself "together," another cat was coming from another direction. It just seemed the situations were all against the squirrel. I shooed the cat away. The squirrel managed to climb into a small cedar tree. The lower branches had been cut off, and he made his way up into the green branches. I was relieved for the squirrel, but I knew a cat could easily get him in that tree. I went back inside and watched from the window. This was so intense. I just kept praying, "O LORD, please don't let him die. Please restore him. I know its your will for animals... but, I don't want to see him die; please help him, restore his life, restore him." I didn't want to see him die. I watched. I was afraid to watch. He came down out of the cedar tree and ran up a locust tree. He made it about half way up or more. He went to a branch and lay down. I was so glad he made it up into the tree; now I was afraid he would fall out of the tree. To have seen him struggling as he did, trying to run, trying to climb, and everything not working right; I was concerned he might fall out of the tree. I thanked the LORD for getting him into the tree. I watched him. He lay for quite awhile. He began to move some; I was so afraid he was going to fall out of the tree. I thought, maybe this is where I should stop watching; he is out of immediate danger of the cats, he seems to be stabilizing, maybe now is a good time for me to stop watching; but, I did keep watching. A neighbor came riding near-by on his riding mower, the squirrel climbed way up into the tree and I could not see him any more. Later, near evening, I saw a squirrel climb down out of the tree. I saw him climb down to about a foot above ground. He looked like he had everything "together." He went on the other side of the tree and I didn't see him any more. I thought, well, he escaped that death. I recently saw a movie where a mob man "introduced," took a man "on the inside." Later, it was found out the one he "introduced" was an informant. The man who "introduced" the informant to the mob, got a phone call; he was called to come to his death. He kissed his wife and told her how pretty she was, he told her if the one he "introduced" called, to tell him "if it had to be anyone, I'm glad it was you." He took off his jewelry, he left his money, and personals in a box he left open. He walked out the door. The movie ended shortly later. It did not show him being killed. I felt like the movie left me hanging; not that I wanted to see his death; but, I guess there's that wanting a good outcome; maybe the informant somehow saved his life. (the informant was crossing the line in his bond between being the informant and being one of them). I would suppose most people would want to intervene if they could stop death. Some may ask, " why doesn't God intervene and stop death?" I know there are times He does; but, many times death prevails. Some during the Holocaust may have asked "where is God?" There were those that sought to save those being killed by the Nazi's. Some countries would not hand over the Jews (and others)that were in their countries when Germany asked for them. Some people hid the Jews, at the risk of being killed themselves. Some businessmen did what they could to save people from death. Some people sought to flee death and hide in the woods. Still some may ask "Why, God?" When God created man and put him in the garden of Eden, he gave him a commandment, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." (Genesis 2:16-17) Death entered the world through man's disobedience. (Romans 5:12-21) The result of sin is death. The penalty of sin is death. I know sometimes God chooses to deliver us from death (Daniel in the den of lions, etc.) but, man still has to die. Jesus came and took our death upon Himself. He never sinned, yet, our sins were upon Him. Why did God forsake Him? because "He being found in the fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." (Philippians 2:8) He, just as man was tempted, was tempted; yet, He sinned not. He overcame sin, death, and the grave. Just as one sinned, and we all became sinners; one was obedient, and we all can be made righteous. (Romans 12-21) In Christ, we never die; though now we still see the effects of the penalty for sin; our outer man dies: but, the new man in Christ shall never die. How many times a day, God must watch death. I know God does not take pleasure in the death of any of His creation. Death entered the world through man's disobedience; but, because of God's love we do not have to fear death, we overcome death by our faith in Jesus Christ.
