Mark 3:7-19 ~ And he went up on the mountain and called to him those whom he desired, and they came to him.

From Mt. Eremos looking out over the Sea of Galilee



Mark 3:7-19

Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea, and a great crowd followed, from Galilee and Judea 8 and Jerusalem and Idumea and from beyond the Jordan and from around Tyre and Sidon. When the great crowd heard all that he was doing, they came to him. 9 And he told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, lest they crush him, 10 for he had healed many, so that all who had diseases pressed around him to touch him. 11 And whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.” 12 And he strictly ordered them not to make him known.


13 And he went up on the mountain and called to him those whom he desired, and they came to him. 14 And he appointed twelve (whom he also named apostles) so that they might be with him and he might send them out to preach 15 and have authority to cast out demons. 16 He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter); 17 James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder); 18 Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot, 19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.




The Gospels, from every one contributing to the telling and writing of Jesus, tell a miracle we often overlook. Jesus asked men He chose to leave their lives - follow Him - and they did.

The reactions to Jesus were profound.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.

Those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become Children of God.

From His fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.

“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"

“I saw the Spirit descend from heaven like a dove, and it remained on Him. I myself did not know Him"

I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.

“We have found the Messiah”

“Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!”

All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips.

“Truly I tell you,” he continued, “no prophet is accepted in his hometown."

All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove Him out of the town, and took Him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw Him off the cliff. But He walked right through the crowd and went on His Way.

“What words these are! With authority and power He gives orders"

At daybreak, Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them.

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

Behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed him.

Psalm 119:49-56 ~ Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope.




Psalm 119:49-56
Zayin

Remember your word to your servant,
in which you have made me hope.
This is my comfort in my affliction,
that your promise gives me life.

The insolent utterly deride me,
but I do not turn away from your law.
When I think of your rules from of old,
I take comfort, O Lord.

Hot indignation seizes me because of the wicked,
who forsake your law.
Your statutes have been my songs
in the house of my sojourning.

I remember your name in the night, O Lord,
and keep your law.

This blessing has fallen to me,
that I have kept your precepts.



If you've seen FB, you probably know by now Psalm 119 is the longest Chapter in the Bible and is considered to be the exact middle. Twenty-two stanzas in the Hebrew alphabet and for Psalm 119. One stanza for each letter. This is elaborate framework for... prayer.




It's said (just Zayin) David used Psalm 119 to teach Solomon the alphabet and to write. Not just the alphabet - the alphabet of the spiritual life.

Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope.

If only. If only Abram had this Psalm of prayer. And that treasured son, Isaac. Why didn't God say upon Isaac He would be named Israel. Makes sense Abram became Abraham. Isaac to Israel. But no dice. Isaac was a good faithful man. He married the blessing Abraham and Sarah sought - their kin Rebecca. It was a miraculous occurrence. There was a marriage only to one woman. Surely one man could create the nation Yahweh told Abram about. That makes such sense. Isaac wasn't handed servant women. Didn't marry sisters. And Isaac was certainly willing to believe he carried Abraham's great blessing to be given to the next generation.

There was just one small hitch. Isaac adhered to the law. And grew blind. Spiritually blind. He believed only one of his children would be blessed of God. And only for birth order as a tradition in culture. People are funny, what they believe.

I've heard people, entire large, significant congregations bustling with people say - Jesus made rock soup. Surely you've heard the children's book about Rock Soup. A man is hungry and starts with clean stones in vat of water promising soup. One by one people put in leeks, potatoes, tomatoes, corn, etc. And at the end of the book - voila - it takes a village and we have soup. Soup is also a slang term for chemical glop.

Now, if Jesus made rock soup instead of - loaves and fishes feeding the multitudes on several occasions... why did He hide out and say the crowd was only there for the blessing. And if people were contributing their picnic supplies - why do we see only left over loaves and fish. Why not a basket filled with figs, cheese, dates, nuts, pomegranates, herring, cod, olives, and grains? Instead only the food Jesus started with is left over. The people were fed by Jesus. Who is God's incarnate Word. How do we know? Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope. Hope - God is who He says He is and His promises are sure. Faith - Those promises are for me. Love - have strength to comprehend the breadth, length, height and depth, the love of Christ surpassing knowledge and filling us with all the fullness of God.

How do we Know? Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope. The Work God gives man is to believe. 

Jacob believed something larger was possible in God. Something as vast as the Universe. More like C.S. Lewis. God is not a tame Lion.

Malachi 3:10
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.

Jacob was indeed all in. Willing to let the Wind of God push him. To fight God for a blessing until dawn believing even in the fight God would want to bless. Believing mere words were a blessing. Words. Words of God. And at the end of his life, he never was asked by his sons to forgive their deceit, but Jacob, who had become Israel, wanted his sons and Joseph's sons to be included in the Blessings of God.

Jacob was cheated in marriage. Indignation seized Jacob a lot. Actually he was treated badly in his marriages. Treated badly by distant family, his father, his mother, and his brother. Jacob knew the death of the woman he treasured, who brought trouble upon them. His family knew favoritism. Encountered rape. They warred over justice. His son slept with one of his wives. And his own children conspired to say his son was dead. He left the promised land and still believed as he died - God was in Charge. And blessings were to be - bestowed - gifted - given - lovingly adopting Joseph's children. And saying, with belief, amazing things were still to come.

Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope. Abraham believed and this is credited to him as righteousness. Blessings were increased as Jacob displayed the greatest of these is Love.

Jesus created awe and wonder as He walked along this life. He saw the futility in law bearing above Love. He saw the sadness in easy breezy pleasy and unkindness of lack of law and structure. Speaking His Word:

Luke 18:9-13

9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!"



Father God, help me to be one of that number. In the name of Jesus. Amen

Psalm 147:12-20 ~ He has not dealt thus with any other nation; they do not know his rules. Praise the Lord!

Psalm 147:12-20

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
13 For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
he blesses your children within you.
14 He makes peace in your borders;
he fills you with the finest of the wheat.

15 He sends out his command to the earth;
his word runs swiftly.

16 He gives snow like wool;
he scatters frost like ashes.
17 He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs;
who can stand before his cold?

18 He sends out his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow and the waters flow.

19 He declares his word to Jacob,
his statutes and rules to Israel.
20 He has not dealt thus with any other nation;
they do not know his rules.
Praise the Lord!




  1. Load small things in the dishwasher first. If the big things don’t fit, it’s easier to hand-wash a few of them than loads of small ones.
  2. Position dishes facing the water spray in the dishwasher. Don'’t put antiques, wooden items, pewter, cast iron or anything hand-painted with gold, silver, platinum or decoration in the dishwasher. Easy is good, but ruining Grandma’s china is BAD! Gold is hand applied.
  3. Place a soft towel on the bottom of the sink as a cushion when washing fine china or glassware by hand.
  4. Add a couple of tablespoons of white vinegar to the soak and the rinse water. It reduces grease, helps food residue dissolve, and makes dishes sparkling clean. I personally like the soap and shower method over sink and share the ick. Do you bathe after you shower?
  5. Clean stains on a glass decanter by washing immediately clean out fast. Lead leaches.  Pour in some uncooked rice, swish solution around, then rinse. Vinegar the pots, that works, if they cool. Otherwise guard your hands and get the pot clean while it's still very hot. Works best while just off the stove.
  6. Remove odors from wooden cutting boards by rubbing with half a cut lemon.
  7. Quick-clean a blender or food processor by filling it one-third full with warm water. Add a few drops of dish-washing liquid and run it for 10 seconds. Rinse and dry.
  8. Clean soft cheese from a grater by rubbing a raw potato or cut lemon over the grater openings.
  9. Rinse dishes that have been used for mixing or beating eggs, milk or cheese with cold water first, then wash with hot water. Hot water “cooks” those foods and makes the pans and bowls harder to clean. So cold first to clean it off and hot second to sanitize!
  10. Or soak overnight with dryer Bounce sheets. There are chemicals. If you can't stand that and after a while - don't do this too often - it'll smell like Bounce, but mannnn it cleans. Vinegar is the other overnight solution.
  11. Wash plastic storage containers with a solution of 4 tablespoons baking soda to 1 quart warm water to remove odors or stains. Rinse with fresh water and dry.
Oy vey. Never leave the kitchen to throw something away when you have a guest.

The Stories of Israel are our stories. Back and forth. Personally I had a Thanksgiving where even the cold winds could Not stop the joy of the hearth & the gratitude.I was so cheerful, I was annoying. We started family Thanksgiving last Saturday, which was grand. And they departed.

Then more guests. Then three days. Then FISH!!!

So my husband and I fled - to the grocery store - in glee - for the third time on Thanksgiving Day. Shhhh. It was a rouse to get out of the house. And I said to Edward, "What would St. Peter or Paul do with this?" And Edward laughed and said, "That Saint would be Called Forth to ANTIOCH!" I married him for a reason. The day was brighter. Except he spent the Thanksgiving morning doing sports!!! (Next year, honey, you spend the morning out, we eat o u t!!!)

(Now, the truth is, that I would love to tattle about that situation ...now. But I have a new rule. The person I'd like to complain about is only complained about when they are in my house. Beware. Shh.)

What is missing in our lives, the telephone. You check FB. The world has a lot of glee.



I'm for glee. But when you call the people on the phone you find people are grappling with the world not always being fun. And I'm for prayer - Father God, let us apply solutions to our lives for improving Thanksgiving Day. Let us pray if we had a great Thanksgiving, that others would have that as well. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

Psalm 147 shares the water analogy of Psalm 107. Life does not rest in one angle. Not lush springs, not drought. Only in Jesus is the victory eternal. Gratitude, when it comes from our own soul can run dry. But if we count upon Living Waters of Jesus - then we bounce. Speaking with an old friend, beloved, older, public figure, we all have those times were the Day is not going to be gleeful. And what you learn speaking with them, is it's in the forgiveness the day goes into bounce mode. Life is made from the decision to know HE is in charge. Learning to be the Light.

What I know, and the dear friend knows, is that Light is coming into the World.

And now we get to celebrate 'with' Light.

He strengthens

He blesses

He makes peace

He fills you with the finest of the wheat

He sends

His Word runs swiftly

He gives

He scatters

He sends out His word, and melts them

Praise God.

1 Timothy 3:16 ~ taken up in Glory



Banco Sabadell of Spain celebrated their 130th anniversary with a flash mob orchestra. 100 people participated in the flash mob from Symphony Orchestra of the Valleys and choirs, Lieder and Amics of l’ Òpera and the Choir Belles Arts. In just a year, 22 million viewers have loved this video.

Ode To Joy

Joyful, joyful
We adore Thee
God of glory
Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee
Hail Thee to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day

With light
With light

Mortals join the mighty chorus
Which the morning stars began
Father love is reigning o'er us
Brother love binds man to man
Ever singing march we onward
Victors in the midst of strife
Joyful music lifts us Son ward
In the triumph song of life


The ascent of the flashmob is completely reminiscent of God's might works. They start very mighty as an ideal as High as His Love. And suddenly become very small, tiny, almost insignificant. Becoming Wonders and Works of the Almighty God.




In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.

The True Light, which gives Light to everyone, was coming into the world.

Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for Whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through Whom we exist.

Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a Son and His Name shall be called Emmanuel. God with us.

Wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger.
No room for Them in the inn.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord...

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God

“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

For my eyes have seen your salvation

A light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.



And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them.

When they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth.

Get up, take the Child and His Mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there



The significance appeared to be gone.

The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom. And the favor of God was upon him.


True light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
In Capernaum.
They called Him Lamb of God.
I myself did not know Him
He said to them, “Come and you will see.”
 He said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!
"We have found the Messiah”


A grown Man took friends and went to stay with His mother,attending a wedding.
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever He tells you.”
You have kept the good wine until now.


“Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

“Zeal for your house will consume me.”

And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.”

Brought to Him all the sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, and He healed them all.

The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the a sea side. And great multitudes were gathered together unto Him

When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd

How often He has longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing

When Jesus saw His mother* and the disciple there whom He loved, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son.”

They nailed His hands and feet unto a cross, He made restitution for our sins. for this is His blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many, for the forgiveness of sins.

There was a written notice above Him, which read: this is the King of the Jews.

“Truly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”

About noon, and darkness came over the whole land
For the sun stopped shining
At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split.

Then said Jesus, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."

Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My Spirit!” And having said this He breathed His last.

The centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, “Certainly this Man was innocent!”

Go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, to My God and your God.’”

These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.

He told them, "As you go into all the world, proclaim the Gospel to everyone."

He was manifested in the flesh,
vindicated by the Spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed among the nations,
believed on in the world,
taken up in glory!!!

Numbers 22:22-28 ~When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she lay down






Numbers 22:22-28 ~ you have struck me these three times

But God's anger was kindled because he [the prophet Balaam went to curse the Children of Israel against God's desire to bless] went , and the angel of the LORD took his stand in the way as his adversary.

Now he was riding on the donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23 And the donkey saw the angel of the LORD standing in the road, with a drawn sword in his hand. And the donkey turned aside out of the road and went into the field. And Balaam struck the donkey, to turn her into the road. 24 Then the angel of the LORD stood in a narrow path between the vineyards, with a wall on either side. 25 And when the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she pushed against the wall and pressed Balaam's foot against the wall. So he struck her again. 26 Then the angel of the LORD went ahead and stood in a narrow place, where there was no way to turn either to the right or to the left.

27 When the donkey saw the angel of the LORD, she lay down under Balaam. And Balaam's anger was kindled, and he struck the donkey with his staff. 28 Then the LORD opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?”






Scripture for Today Blogspot would love to show you, at this point, an archaeological tombstone, or pottery shard with the story of the wonderful donkey. We will have to take it on faith. God's glory unseen. Unfortunately, all archaeology only confirms Balaam was not a child of Israel, & did worship other gods and was a prophet intent on other gods.


In 1967, at Deir Alla, Jordan, archaeologists found 119 pieces of inked plaster containing an unknown prophecy by Balaam written in a previously unattested dialect with Aramaic and South Canaanite characteristics and employing an idiosyncratic script. The inscription is datable to circa 840–760 B.C. . Painted in red and black inks, apparently to emphasize the text, on fragments of a plastered wall. This is not the correct time frame. This would have been during Uzziah's reign. Perhaps it is another Balaam, or Balaam was still being quoted.


Agreeing with the Balaam testimony is:
  • God is good, forgiving and gracious in the way He records Balaam in the Book of Numbers. Later, the New Testament says Balaam continued to work against God's anointed people.
  • John, Jesus' beloved disciple, Balaam as not part of the Children of Israel, instead working against them. Balaam's error and the source of his wickedness came from sabotaging the Israelites as they entered the Promised Land. 
  • According to Numbers 31:16 
  • And St. John (Revelation 2:14), Balaam returned to King Balak and informed the king on how to get the Israelites to curse themselves by enticing them with prostitutes and unclean food sacrificed to idols. The Israelites fell into transgression due to these traps and God sent a deadly plague to them as a result (Numbers 31:16).
  • Jude, the Brother of Jesus
  • Peter, the Rock who built the Church learning not to favor money and to instead do the will of Father God.

Revelation 2:14
But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality.

Balaam held the interest of Jude, brother of Jesus:

Jude 1:11
What sorrow awaits them! For they follow in the footsteps of Cain, who killed his brother. Like Balaam, they deceive people for money. And like Korah, they perish in their rebellion.

Peter was also interested in Balaam.

2 Peter 2:15
Forsaking the right way, they have gone astray. They have followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved gain from wrongdoing

What is remarkable of Balaam.... his defiance, bold resistance to opposing God or an angel of the Lord's authority.... to continue to do the wrong thing.

Numbers 22
29 And Balaam said to the donkey, “Because you have made a fool of me. I wish I had a sword in my hand, for then I would kill you.” 30 And the donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your donkey, on which you have ridden all your life long to this day? Is it my habit to treat you this way?” And he said, “No.”

31 Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, with his drawn sword in his hand. And he bowed down and fell on his face. 32 And the angel of the LORD said to him, “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Behold, I have come out to oppose you because your way is perverse before me. 33 The donkey saw me and turned aside before me these three times. If she had not turned aside from me, surely just now I would have killed you and let her live.”

34 Then Balaam said to the angel of the LORD, “I have sinned, for I did not know that you stood in the road against me. Now therefore, if it is evil in your sight, I will turn back.” 35 And the angel of the LORD said to Balaam, “Go with the men, but speak only the word that I tell you.”



Numbers 24
When Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he did not go, as at other times, to look for omens, but set his face toward the wilderness. 2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes and saw Israel camping tribe by tribe. And the Spirit of God came upon him,

12 And Balaam said to Balak, “Did I not tell your messengers whom you sent to me, 13 ‘If Balak should give me his house full of silver and gold, I would not be able to go beyond the word of the LORD, to do either good or bad of my own will. What the LORD speaks, that will I speak’? 14 And now, behold, I am going to my people. Come, I will let you know what this people will do to your people in the latter days.”

It is up to each of us not turn from what we know is right. Fight for goodness. With the grace of God. God speaks to us in our hearts, we believe & He tells us this in the New Testament.

Jesus said even the stones would cry out to declare Jesus sovereign. And mere babes.




Balaam's donkey has held the interest of people who love the Scriptures for ages. Crying out for mercy. To the one she loved.

“What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?”

"Am I not your donkey, on which you have ridden all your life long to this day? Is it my habit to treat you this way?”



People have spoken of this for about three millenniums. We certainly know donkeys existed in this era. Recently Israel discovered a mummified donkey. We could look at the photo's, but I'm betting Balaam's donkey wasn't the donkey in the photo.

Jesus came to live our life and did several interesting things. Understatement, of course. One of the ones I harp on endlessly is John 4, Jesus declared his Sovereignty to a displaced Samaritan Woman after Samaritans were tossed out of the Second Temple, and the Children of Israel then went to marry, noooo, not to the displaced DNA Children of Israel trying to be the remnant, but on to the goys - the people like us - not the Children of Israel until Jesus adopted us. Yep. Tossed out the Remnant Children of Israel to marry the local Philistines and Canaanites and Moabites.

So Balaam's poor Donkey - did the work, was smarter than Balaam and a few other people like John the Baptist's father - and Knew to Lay Down before the Authority of God.

Jesus made sure when He was triumphant - He rode a donkey. Of course:

Zechariah 9:9

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
righteous and having salvation is he,
humble and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

1 Kings 1:33-44

And the king said to them, “Take with you the servants of your lord and have Solomon my son ride on my own mule, and bring him down to Gihon. 34 And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet there anoint him king over Israel. Then blow the trumpet and say, ‘Long live King Solomon!’

Yet I would have to say, Jesus was taking care of the past and giving Grace.




Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?




Psalm 148:5-6

Let everything he has made give praise to him. For he issues his command, and they came into being; he established them forever and forever. His orders will never be revoked.

Proverbs 12:10
A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal,
But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.

Isaiah 11
5 Righteousness will be his belt
and faithfulness the sash around his waist.
6 The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
and a little child will lead them.
7 The cow will feed with the bear,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
8 The infant will play near the hole of the cobra,
and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest.
9 They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD
as the waters cover the sea

 Matthew 10:29
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.


The passage in Romans 8:18-25 certainly does include animals as part of “the creation.”

Elijah was picked up from heaven by horses, this was told to Elijah before it occurred and Elisha saw it happen. The Lord could have sent anything to convey Elijah to heaven, but the horses came from heaven and the Lord sent them. The four winds sent from Heaven are on horses. The four winds are written of in Daniel, Zechariah and Revelations 7.

Zechariah 6:
2 The first chariot had red horses, the second black, 3 the third white, and the fourth dappled—all of them powerful. 4 I asked the angel who was speaking to me, "What are these, my lord?" 5 The angel answered me, "These are the four spirits of heaven, going out from standing in the presence of the Lord of the whole world.


A good man cares for his animals
No one but Jesus can be called good.

1 Corinthians 9:9, Deuteronomy 25:4

For it is written in the Law of Moses, "You Shall Not Muzzle The Ox While He Is Threshing " God is concerned about oxen, isn't He, He's not too busy.

We are not told implicitly, but Heaven has been told to us in Scripture and the verses hold God’s love spreading to animals in His eternal kingdom.
