Almond Blossoms at the Door

Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the man who listens to [08085]{hears,obeys} me, watching[08245] daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

Jeremiah 1:11-12 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond[08247] tree. ” … Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching[08245]

Numbers 17:6-8 So Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and each of their leaders gave him a rod apiece, for each leader according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods; and the rod of Aaron was among their rods. 7So Moses deposited the rods before the LORD in the tent of the testimony. 8Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses went into the tabernacle of witness, and behold, the rod of Aaron, of the house of Levi, had sprouted and put forth buds, had produced blossoms and yielded ripe almonds[08247].

The word for almond[08247] means earliest in bloom, wakeful, watchful as tho it never slept, it comes from the same word for watching[08245]. The rod of Aaron {the branch} laid in the Lord’s Presence all thru the night in the tent of the testimony. The next morning the rod the Lord had chosen had blossomed and generated the full fruit of almonds.

The one who hears, listens and obeys
Is found at the feet of  I AM

Speak, for Your servant hears[08085]! -1 Sam 3:10

Watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors
Kept safe under my wings thru the night.

The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night, a prayer to the God of my life. -Ps 42:8

Wait, expectantly wait at my feet
Covered
Kept thru the night …

I wait[06960] {look,hope} for the Lord,
I expectantly wait, my soul does wait,
And in His word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning. -Ps 130:5-6

Until in the doorway on the wings of dawn
Your blossoms appear, cascading
Shining, full of the sun’s morning light.

I will sing for joy in God,
Explode in praise from deep in my soul!
He dressed me up in a suit of salvation,
He outfitted me in a robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom who puts on a tuxedo and a bride a jeweled tiara.
For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers,
And as a garden cascades with blossoms,
So the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom
And puts praise on display before the nations. -Isa 61:10-11 MSG

    Aaron’s rod, blossoms and almonds revealed
    Waiting expectantly at the door
    Kept thru the night before the tent of testimony
    Until on the wings of dawn
    Blossoms and almonds unfold
    Revealed
    Full of life
    Full of light
    In the Son.

    Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the man who listens to {hears,obeys} me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

    These rods full of light — are blossoming at the door!

    Jeremiah 1:11-12 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree. ” … Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching.”

    Rev 3
    7″To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
    These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. 8I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. 10Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth. 11I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. 13He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

    Ps 84:5-7
    How blessed is the man whose strength is in You, In whose heart are the highways to Zion! 6As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. 7They go from strength to strength, Every one of them appears before God in Zion.

    Ears are pierced at the doorposts!
    https://khollandsblog.wordpress.com/2009/06/05/pierced-ears/

    The pierced ear was a symbol of who the servant/slave belonged. The servant of the Lord — found at the doorpost — with pierced ears!

    Psalms 119:125 I am Your servant; Give me understanding, That I may know[03045] Your testimonies.

    Psalm 132:17 There I will make the horn of David bud; I will prepare a lamp for My Anointed.

    Psalms 89:15-17 How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O LORD, they walk in the light of Your countenance. 16In Your name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted. 17For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted.

    Dead Branch
    A branch may appear dead while waiting ‘at the door’ thru the long dark
    night.

    Take heart! For it’s at the door, laying still thru the night
    That the branch is sustained by My hand,
    Refreshed and renewed with the dew of My presence.
    Joy is coming in the morning. With the rising Sun of Righteousness,
    My servants blossom, full of light and life.
    My dew sparkling like diamonds,
    Still fresh appears at dawn.

    Take heart!
    The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off
    the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. -Rom 13:12

    My root is spread out to the waters, and dew lies all night on my branch.
    My glory is ever new with me, and my bow is renewed in my hand. -Job
    29:19-20
