Description: locus eat the kernels off the ear of corn,with battered American flag as background.

This year I carved a pumpkin,that communicate the message of Pestilence, a Biblical Biological tool of punishment, that God used in the old testament, to correct nation of people,like Egypt,who did not acknowledge God,but thought themselves to be above God. Well we as a nation are doing the same think, and thats why our prosperous way of life has disappeared. And now many are out of work and can’t find jobs. Because man is hurting man out of his own pursuit of greed. Out of turning from God, Every man stopped living by God’s command, and started do what was right in his own eyes. So with out God’s help, of His blessings,without His healing hand,with out his guidance a nation will crumble to dust, and the winds of time will carry away it’s memory.
Repent! Come back to God, if you want to save your nation, God will forgive,and restore.

    A beautiful job and I loved everything that you wrote. So sad but so true. God Bless.

  • It’s time to face truth, get to the heart of the matter. The problem of this nation did not happen over night,they are the results sowing bad seeds. we as Christians need to repent as well, turn to serving God’s will instead of chasing after the acceptance by the world, and chasing after it’s treasures.
    Let us work hard at shining the light of truth,in to a world of people who are lost in the darkness of deception of The Deceiver, and Destroyer.

    No reptiles, Just a type of grass hopper grubbing on some corn. Which is ok if you aren’t a farmer.

  • Webbie,

    So glad you enjoy this pumpkin sculpture. I my self ,like you do not celebrate Halloween, but I do participate in the Chadds Ford Historical Society, Great Pumpkin Carve. It is a great way to share a Christian message with a large audience. I pray every year to the lord for the message He want to deliver through me, and I only go if He send me.
