In the chase for the ultimate dream life, the vultures will follow.
When promised descendants as many as the stars and the grains of sand, Abram hadn’t even had one child yet. Yet he believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. To bind that promise he sacrificed to God animal offerings.
Some vultures swooped down to eat the carcasses, but Abram chased them away.
The moment you seal yourself to God, this massive radar goes off in Hell’s mission control station, deploying every available demon to break that promise. The devil finds his greatest joy in destroying anything God is establishing.
Then the vultures will come to pick away at your offering. They will lie, put doubts, trip you up, stir confusion and we must chase them away. It’s not like swatting flies, I don’t know if you’ve seen vultures before, but they’re big, ugly and persistent. And they travel as a committee which would explain why sometimes when it rains, sigh, it really pours.
Notice it was Abram’s choice to chase the birds of prey away, he didn’t wait for God to strike them dead.
When vultures clean, they Monica clean it. They will leave nothing behind.
What would it mean if Abram had let the vultures be? Well, what would it mean if you make a meal for your loved one and you allow a lizard to sit in it?
How sacred is your commitment to God? How far are you willing to go to protect it?

On a Disney note: The vultures from Jungle Book were originally supposed to be voiced by the Beatles! They kinda look like them too O_O
Thinking of: Sheep, Buzzie, Flaps, Ziggy, Dizzy, The Beatles, Giler Selamba Jane, what an irresponsible cousin I turned out as today, how convenience is creeping into laziness, no more folding of hands and more sheep.
