Watching Tree

February 14, 2016

Jeremiah 1:11-12 NASB … The word of the Lord came to me saying, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” And I said, “I see a rod of an almond tree.” 12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.”

Watching tree, watching tree
Sober and alert as tho you never sleep
Watching tree what do you see?

Aaron’s rod, Root of Jesse –Num 17:8; Is 11:10
Firmly planted by the streams –
Ps 1:3
First to bud first to see
Almond tree –Jer 1:12
A branch
A banner
A golden lamp stand
Aflame before the throne
Shines bright
Full of light
Full of life.

Watching tree, watching tree
Stand strong with the sword of the Spirit
Stand upright shine bright
Guarding against the darkness of the night! –Sos 3:8

Luke 12:35-37  … Keep your loins girded and your lamps burning, 36 And be like men who are waiting for their master to return home from the marriage feast, so that when he returns from the wedding and comes and knocks, they may open to him immediately.
37 Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are those servants whom the master finds awake and alert and watching[1127] when he comes. Truly I say to you, he will gird himself and have them recline at table and will come and serve them!

From NetBible Lk 12:37

  • watching[1127] = alert, to keep awake, vigilant

Unfolding Rose

June 8, 2010

🙂

This really encouraged me!!!!! … From Almond Blossoms at the Door

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.

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

Mark 5
35While Jesus was still speaking, some men came from the house of
Jairus, the synagogue ruler. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why
bother the teacher any more?”
36Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, “Don’t be
afraid; just believe.” …

38When they came to the home of the synagogue ruler, Jesus saw a commotion, with people crying and wailing loudly. 39He went in and said to them, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep.” …

41He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means,”Little girl, I say to you, ARISE!” ). 42Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished.

The stick that appears dead — is not dead at all
It’s in a state of sleep
A state of rest at the feet of the Kinsmen Redeemer -Ruth 3:8
Laying still before the door.

“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.” -Ps 46:10

In stillness the dew forms during the night.

“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength” … -Isa 30:15

The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever. -Isa 32:17

Be still and wait
Wait for the coming King
Wait in quietness and trust
For His words

Little one{at rest under My wing}
ARISE!

****

The words that cause ‘My Rose’ to be covered with dew and unfold during the night –>

Be still and KNOW that I am God!

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.

Romans 5 NKJV
Faith Triumphs in Trouble

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 New Living Translation
For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

Almond Blossoms at the Door

May 30, 2010

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

Watchmen Don’t Remain Silent!

February 17, 2010
What good is a watchman who won’t speak out?
-Ezk 33:6

Isaiah 56:9-12
Come, all you beasts of the field,
… come and devour, all you beasts of the forest!
Israel’s watchmen are blind,
… they all lack knowledge;
… they are all mute dogs,
… they cannot bark;
… they lie around and dream,
… they love to sleep.
They are dogs with mighty appetites;
… they never have enough.
… They are shepherds who lack understanding;
… they all turn to their own way,
… each seeks his own gain.
“Come,” each one cries, “let me get wine!
… Let us drink our fill of beer!
… And tomorrow will be like today,
… or even far better.”

Hosea 4:11
Harlotry and wine and new wine take away the heart and the mind and the spiritual understanding.
