It’s a bad time in the world to be a wild horse. Man has severely limited the areas in which they may freely roam. With man in charge––and that “man” is the United States Government––wild horses are dying of both starvation and thirst. Being a wild horse was a great life back when they were allowed to exist under the rule of God. As eventually happens when man’s rational law takes over, a bell begins to ring ever so faintly. Over time the sound becomes progressively louder until even the deafest ear can hear its death knell.
“Enter by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13–14
Man is in charge of nearly everything today: which babies are born and which are not; who will die at the end of their natural life and who will not; how parents may raise and educate their children; and how the money you earn will be spent, even if it is spent in a way morally abhorrent to you. We are like wild horses today, living under the mutinous thumb of man’s poor judgment. Thankfully, we who know Jesus Christ as Lord are assured of ultimately finding the gate that opens to the world God intended where we may escape the bondage of man’s rule to live forever, freely roaming heaven’s lush verdant pastures.
