This is a parable for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see. It was related to me by Red Elk, a native American elder when he came to visit me, and we had many a talk and I heard many a parable from him. Red Elk passed away some time ago, but I will never forget the many stories concerning salvation in the Lord. Many Christian people dismissed him as a lunatic that was just a total apostate who knew nothing about Christianity. So here was one of his favorite parables, and the truth that it contains goes right over the head of folks who claim to have ears to hear but are deaf, and eyes to see but are blind.


“Once upon a time there was a big gray wolf and who was now perishing for lack of food and was very weak and so tired, he was laying down and was going to soon die if he did not get some food. He was starving to death and he knew it. He was so weak, however, that he was not certain if he could run fast enough to catch anything and was ready to give up and go into eternal sleep.

As he lay there a big elk walked by. The wolf knew that he would die if he could not catch the elk and bring it down. With all the strength the wolf had, he got up and ran after the elk as fast as he could and refused to give up, refused to believe he could not capture and eat this elk, and finally, with all the strength he had, and with a fierce struggle, he fought the good fight and he OVERCAME and brought down the elk and found nourishment to continue.”

Buried within this parable are truths that all of modern Christianity has no clue about, and thus, they perish by the millions.

Matthew 5:5-7

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

One might want to look up the words OVERCOMETH, HUNGER and THIRST.

  1. Excellent blog Stew! Anyone who pooh-poohs Red Elk or others who are not traditional “Christians” are actually calling God a liar when He says He will pour out His Spirit upon ALL flesh… Acts 2:17)

    And once again, the feet of the preacher are beautiful! (timely-Strong’s #G5611)

    I recently did a study and ended it with the saying: “To the victor go the spoils! I feel renewed in spirit and will continue to fight the enemy with God spurring me on until I become an overcomer in the full sense of the word; true authentic regeneration and Agape love bestowment.”

    The Idium-Dictionary says:
    To the victor belong the spoils. In a war or other contest, the winner gets the booty. The proverb originated in the United States and was first used in 1832 by Senator William Learned Marcy (1786-1857) of New York. ‘The victor gets the spoils’ and ‘To the victor go the spoils’ are variations of the proverb.”

    Webster’s Dictionary says:
    BOOT’Y, n.
    1. Spoil taken from an enemy in war; plunder; pillage.
    2. That which is seized by violence* and robbery.

    And in this case the “Booty” is literally your eternal life!

    Satan will never defeat Christ or those who are overcomers!

    * And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. (Mat 11:12)


  2. The difference between “the many” and “the few” (by the grace of God).

    Another “perfect timing” blog post for me. I started the Salvation Series at the Night Shadows member site last night, and WOW, WOW, WOW.

    Thank you so much for the continued diligence, and God continue to bless you all….!


  3. The Wolf saw and understood his true state…he knew it, but refused to accept it, so, in desperation, as he had nothing to lose, he sought life and gained it by acting upon his decision to do something about it. His faith led to life.
