Where the Vultures gather

Death draws those who feed on carcasses.

“Where, Lord?” they asked. He replied, “Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.” Lu 17:37

In a dead church one encounters those who feed on the rotting substance of perverted doctrine.

The scripture -- the Deciples are wondering about the ones taken -- one each from the bed and from grinding grain.  "Where Lord, have they been taken?"  Christ's response is that the vultures are gathered where death is.

Remember the Parable of the Wheat and Tares -- that the seed sewn by the Enemy is left to mature along side the wheat until the time of the end, then the Angels are dispatched to first cut down the tares and burn them, and then the Lord gives the command to gather the wheat into His barn.

Another picture is of Noah -- where he was kept away from the flood that took all those who didn't enter the Arc.
