DEATH.. by Cartoon.. While there were preexisting conditions, it was THE CARTOON that killed him. - CDC (Center of Deceased Cartoonists) Dr. Foopie
Dateline: 11th Century BC
CAUSE OF DEATH:
Later testing determined VIC did not die from bump on head and not from his head being severed, but instead it was .. COVID-19. Kidding, kidding, I could not help myself.
Truth is .. the VIC was Goliath who met his demise in the form of the shepherd boy David armed with a sling, a few choice stones all endorsed by the very POWER OF GOD.
BUT.. I digress... as this event should be classified as.. DEATH BY CARTOON.
Let me share a few more memorable DEATH BY CARTOON Bible moments.
Note: From the beginning through this very day, only Enoch, and Elijah have been given a 'hall pass' from God to cheat death. In the case of Elijah, he lived even though he was not wearing his seat belt.
Everyone else gasped their last breath and succumbed their inevitable demise.
- Sisera died from a tent stake splitting headache.
- Eglon was run through.
- Noah's neighbors could not tread water for 40 days and nights.
- Jericho Guards fell down go boom.
- Abimelech's world was rocked
then on to the New Testament where
- Lazarus DEAD!.. then not dead
- Jesus died then of course rose from the grave. while the ..
- The Thief died on the cross next to Jesus, but then HEAVEN! Truly Amazing Grace
finally we read about..
- Death riding on a horse and in need of a tic-tac.
DEATH .. more than a macabre theme for Halloween, or the chilly exit from out time on this Earth. For believers death is the beginning to LIFE eternal.
Oh death where is your victory? Oh death where is your sting? I Corinthians 15:55
Since I probably will not leave this Earth riding a chariot of fire, and I know this life is just a drop in the ocean of eternity. I will grieve when loved one's die, but I pray always for perspective that includes eternal life for those who love God. Then death truly has no victory, death has no sting.
May God bless each of you with the peace of eternal life with God. May we gain a glimpse of the big picture with a perspective outside our circumstances and pain we may endure. May the promise of a peace that passes all understanding become real to each those who choose to follow our God.
