I Confess I Killed The Dog

I Confess, I Killed That Dog!
I have never been a great hunter. I try from time to time but never with a lot of success. I do have lots of venison in my freezer. I call it mercy venison. Other hunters give it to me because they know; I did not get my own deer. My father-in–law despite lung cancer and other health issues shot two deer last season. I'm 46 and have never got my picture taken with dead meat. My son shot a deer at age 14 on his first day of hunting.
However, I did shoot a dog while on a deer hunt. This statement always gets me into trouble. There is a big social no-no around dog killing. So let me tell you what happened. I was hunting up in Michigan’s U.P. around Rice Lake with some other hunters. I was in a remote location assigned to me by the chief of our little Yooper hunting camp. I was assigned a hunting spot at the back of a little clearing looking over a huge Yooper swamp. I had been up early, ate a great hunting camp breakfast, and sat for hours and then I fell asleep. I must have looked like something that had died in the woods. I was awoken by two wild dogs, which were deciding which part to eat first of my cadaver. When I moved they began to growl and show me two sets of giant canine teeth.
I thought a very dumb notion, “I’m dead, and these dogs are going to eat me!” They continued to circle me and snarl at my frightened bones. Then I remembered I have a shotgun. I picked up my old 16-gage shotgun and shot one of the dogs in its canine cranium. It dropped dead and the other wild beast escaped into the woods. Not very long after my successful wild dog hunt, some of the other hunters showed up to help me track my deer. They asked, “What did you get?” They expected me to say, “A spike horn buck,” but I said to their amazement, I Said, “A Dog!” Well, they were very proud of me. I was the mighty killer of pets gone bad.
Sometimes in life, we must kill what endangers us. That is very true when it comes to our soul, we must kill the sin that destroys our walk with God.
Colossians 3:5 “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.”
When ever that sin comes into your life put it to death. A violent, swift, unmerciful death is best!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
