Sudden destruction comes in various forms, but recently for one woman who fell off a cliff, her body was afterwards consumed by Griffon Vultures in just 45 to 50 minutes!
The body of a woman who died after falling off a cliff in France was devoured by vultures in just 45 minutes, before rescue workers were able to reach the body. The 52-year-old woman was hiking with two friends in the French Pyrenees on April 14 when she fell off a cliff and plunged more than 980 feet to her death, according to France’s TF1. The woman’s body was eaten by vultures in minutes. “There were only bones, clothes and shoes left on the ground,” Major Didier Pericou told The Times of London. “They took 45 to 50 minutes to eat the body.” Adding, “When we first went out in the helicopter looking for the body, we saw numerous vultures without realizing what they were doing.” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/06/woman-eaten-by-vultures-cliff_n_3224746.html?view=print&comm_ref=false)
Similar To Jezebel
If you know how Jezebel died there are striking similarities to the woman who was quickly eaten by vultures. In fulfillment of a prophecy, Jezebel’s end came in a swift and violent manner:
“Throw her [Jezebel] down!” Jehu said. So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered the wall and the horses as they trampled her underfoot. Jehu went in and ate and drank. “Take care of that cursed woman,” he said, “and bury her, for she was a king’s daughter.” But when they went out to bury her, they found nothing except her skull, her feet and her hands. They went back and told Jehu, who said, “This is the word of the LORD that he spoke through his servant Elijah the Tishbite: On the plot of ground at Jezreel dogs will devour Jezebel’s flesh. (2 Ki 9:33-36)
Soon after Jezebel died, dogs ate her flesh leaving only her skull, feet and hands!
Birds Gorged Themselves on Their Flesh
At the end of this age and during the defeat of the antichrist and false prophet, meat eating birds will gorge themselves on the flesh of dead humans and horses:
And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.” (Rev 19:17,18)
But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh. (Rev 19:20,21)
NOTE: The Greek word translated birds in Rev. 19:17 and 19:21 is found one other time in the New Testament, that is, in Rev. 18:2. In that verse it is identified with unclean birds. If we compare that to Lev. 11:13 and Deut. 14:12, vultures are listed as unclean or detestable birds. God can do a quick clean up of human flesh through vultures, dogs or any way he wants. What happened to the mountain climber, who got devoured by vultures will be repeated again with meat eating birds, in fulfillment of Bible prophecy! Do you have rest for your soul?
