Isaiah 40:7-8 “The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”
The Scene: Wilted flowers and grass fallen because the breath of the Lord blew on them– a representation of mankind.
Mankind is frail and has mortality just like the plants of the earth. In this regard we pass through life into eternity. Unlike the plants that die and fade away back into the soil, mankind will spend the rest of his time, after death, in heaven or hell, based on each person’s choices regarding his relationship with or without Jesus Christ.
Job 4:8-9 “I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it. At the breath of God they are destroyed; at the blast of his anger they perish.”
Psalm 34:9 “You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man’s life is but a breath.”
Our lives are brief– all mankind has but limited time to believe in the one true God and His Son Jesus, accept Him as Lord and Savior and choose to and serve our Maker. Each person makes that choice for him- or herself and lives with the consequences, eternally.
