“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing?

and one of them shall not fall

on the ground without your Father…

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings,

and not one of them is forgotten before God?”

Matthew 10:29 & Luke 12:6

.

Many pet owners are sad because they are fearful that throughout eternity, they will be separated from their beloved pets.

TWO SPARROWS

.

But the Bible speaks of the fate of animals in several different places

Here is one of those places…“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father” Matthew 10:29 

.

This verse gives us just a hint that our God even notices the little birds who fall to the ground in death.

TWO TURTLEDOVES CONSTELLATION

.

And to our surprise and astonishment, God has even etched a constellation which reminds us of this above verse.

.

Yes, the Two-Turtledoves Constellation depicts two birds flying the heavens, both in the same direction. Of course, this constellation has been dubbed by ancient pagan astronomers as Sagittarius. But God’s original intent was to inscribe two birds flying in the same direction as Arcturus who is leading his sons in a northwest direction.

“NOT ONE OF THEM IS FORGOTTEN BEFORE GOD!”

.

But there is a similar verse which speaks of, not just two sparrows, but of FIVE sparrows…Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?” Luke 12:6

.

Now this above verse says it in even stronger language…and not one of them is forgotten before God?”

.

Now we read that “not one of them is forgotten before God!”

“The creature itself also shall be delivered…”

.

And if these two verses do not give us hope for these creatures, just listen to this next passage…For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” (please read Romans 8:18-23)

.

So here it promises that the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

.

So here God states that the creature will also be delivered from this doomed world!

CREATURE = CREATION

Two Turtledoves birds & Flower Of The Field Constellations.

And if one does a word study it is discovered that the Greek for for “creature” can also be translated as “Creation”. And so, this above passage speaks of not only the creatures of the earth, but of the entire Creation itself being delivered from this doomed planet into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. And this reminds us of this next verse…“Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:31

.

One very curious aspect to this Two-Turtledoves Constellation is that this same constellation also appears as the Ark of the Covenant Mercy Seat in which blood sacrifices were to be made.

.

But these two birds appear to be flying away, as though they are escaping that judgment of certain death.

.

Well, we will just have to wait until Judgment Day to discover exactly what God is saying in that aforementioned passage of Romans 8.

.

Nevertheless it gives all of us great hope concerning Judgment Day!

THE TWO TURTLEDOVES CONSTELLATION… This constellation appears in early spring in the south. It moves from east to west during the night and slowly moves to the western horizon by fall. It is commonly known as Sagittarius. (The three stars at the top of the 2nd Turtledove are not shown in some Sagittarius Star-charts, but are in others.)

GOD’S LAST CALL

.

So these Two Turtledoves are a sign of witnessing to a lost and dying world. And it may just be that these Two Turtledoves are a sign of God’s last message to the world!

.

Yes, the Bible says… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Luke 21:25-27.

.

And so, if these signs are a fulfillment of Luke’s prophecy, then these Two Turtle-Doves are a symbol of God’s last message of mercy to this world!
