Legends also speak of the phoenix—a bird of beauty from the first paradise.
The phoenix legend commemorates a bird that was raised to new life out of the
ashes of fire. Some think it is only a myth, but the phoenix bird is mentioned in
the Book of Job. The Hebrew word KHOL has two meanings. Many translations
say sand but it can also be translated phoenix bird. In this corrected translation
it is indicating resurrection hope. Job 29:18,
Then I thought, ‘I shall die in my nest,
and I shall multiply my days like the phoenix.’
Job is recalling the fire phoenix legend, wherein the phoenix bird dies in fire
and rises to new life from the ashes of death. Job is comparing himself to a bird
that dies in the nest—only to rise again at a future time just like the phoenix bird.
The phoenix is therefore a symbol of future resurrection to new life.
We know anything that advances God’s purpose is possible. God can create
life when he chooses—green herb, animal, human, or spirit. Any new-life from
non-life is a divine act of creation, whether a first-creation or a later re-creation
(resurrection). The phoenix bird can be explained as God’s prophetic symbol
of future resurrection. From the beginning God has done miracles in all ages,
more than was ever written in the Bible or in any other book.
As for me, I would seek God, and to God I would commit my cause.
He does great things and unsearchable,
marvellous things without number.
But there are also many other things that Jesus did;
if every one of them were written down, I suppose that
the world itself could not contain the books that would be written.
The phoenix was one of God’s creations from the beginning. Animals do not
have resurrection power in themselves but they can be resurrected from death
if God chooses—just like humans. God has chosen to resurrect a phoenix bird
to serve as a resurrection hope and inspiration for all of humanity everywhere.
This is why I named this media ministry after The Phoenix, because it stands for “Resurrecting Hope”, a news ministry delivers “Good News” in the aspect of Resurrecting Hope.
Red signifies the Blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ.
His blood will always be over us like a cloak.
Hence why this ministry/ webzine post company is called
“The Red Phoenix Post”
