Jeduthun has other strange encounters, in the wee hours of the morning, as this mystery unfolds to deliver a cataclysmic crescendo of events.
There in the vast sea of sand were five still moist mud cakes, which actually were sand castles that had been so beautifully sculptured and were towering toward the sky. It was as if the Holy Spirit were whispering to Jeduthun’s spirit when he heard the question: “Didn’t I mold and make you as the potter does the clay? Though I made you from the earth, I have placed within you that part of me which will allow you to stand as a rock in the midst of adversity. Look around you. Do you know of any others that you have interacted with over this past year who are like these mud cakes, standing strong in the midst of adversity, like a rock?”
