Good vs. Bad Fruit Trees

​Mat 7:15 — Mat 7:20

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

I had a dream before waking where I was in a fruit orchard. I saw some trees standing while others were cut down.  I also saw people going up to trees and picking fruit and as they took their first bite they became sick. They went to the tree for food without first discerning the nature of the fruit they were about to eat. 

I have the following observations about this dream:

If Jesus is warning of false prophets then there must also be true prophets of the Lord as well. For example, you would not have counterfeit money in existence if real money didn’t exist as there would be no reason to do so. So the warning given by Jesus to beware of false prophets means that there are true prophets. 

The fact that the people in my dream were going haphazardly up to any tree without first stopping to discerning the fruit of the tree can be likened to Eve’s eating of the forbidden fruit because it was pleasing to the eye, i.e., gratified the flesh, and good for food. We tend to judge by sight and stop there. If we like what we see and hear then we eat not realising the consequences of our actions.

I also noticed in the dream that trees had been cut down. Jesus said that these trees which bore bad Fruit would be cut down and cast into the fire. 

We need to pray that  God would grant us discernment. We need to pray that God helps us to get our flesh in check so that we won’t be drawn to these trees, i.e., false prophets, that bear bad fruit.

We need to pray that God cleanse us of the bad fruit, i.e., false teachings, that we may have already eaten.

We also need to take personal responsibility to search the scriptures for ourselves and check the veracity of what is being taught.

A true prophets or teacher will not be upset if his word or teaching is challenged but will instead be happy that an individual is seeking the Lord for his/herself.

A Second Dream of A Large Tree Being Cut Down.

Dan 4:10 — Dan 4:17

“These were the visions of my head while on my bed:

I was looking, and behold,

A tree in the midst of the earth,

And its height was great.

The tree grew and became strong;

Its height reached to the heavens,

And it could be seen to the ends of all the earth.

Its leaves were lovely,

Its fruit abundant,

And in it was food for all.

The beasts of the field found shade under it,

The birds of the heavens dwelt in its branches,

And all flesh was fed from it.

“I saw in the visions of my head while on my bed, and there was a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven. He cried aloud and said thus:

“Chop down the tree and cut off its branches,

Strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit.

Let the beasts get out from under it,

And the birds from its branches.

Nevertheless leave the stump and roots in the earth,

Bound with a band of iron and bronze,

In the tender grass of the field.

Let it be wet with the dew of heaven,

And let him graze with the beasts

On the grass of the earth.

Let his heart be changed from that of a man,

Let him be given the heart of a beast,

And let seven times pass over him.

‘This decision is by the decree of the watchers,

And the sentence by the word of the holy ones,

In order that the living may know

That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men,

Gives it to whomever He will,

And sets over it the lowest of men.’

4 months ago I had a dream where I saw a fir tree that was taller than all the surrounding fir trees.  The above scripture is what came to me then as it has again this time. In my current dream there was a very tall tree that cast a large shadow upon the ground as its branches spread out very wide. The shadow here is indicative of influence.  Like in the other tree dream it was cut down without hands. I do remember in this dream special attention was given to the band that was put around the tree. The roots are where the tree got its start as any tree grows roots first before anything appears. The “roots”,if you will  of America as a nation are found, I believe, in the Mayflower Compact which reads as follows:

In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the Faith, etc.
Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.
In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.[14]

The original first colony was founded for the glory of God and the furtherance of the Christian faith, i.e. the roots of this nation.

The metal band placed around the tree from what I have read was to keep it from splitting and thus rotting. I believe, however, that the band represents being bound until such time as this nation  acknowledges and returns to the Lord.

As for the stump itself, I have seen new sprouts emerge from trees that have been cut down. New growth from old roots.

An excerpt from George Washington’s first inaugural address reads as follows:

Since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained.

We as a nation need to repent, seek the face of God and ask His forgiveness and return to the roots from which this country was founded.

Beware of Leviathan

In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong,
Will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
Leviathan that twisted serpent;
And He will slay the reptile that is in the sea. Isaiah 27:1

I had a vision this morning 09/16/2016 while praying  where I saw a pastor at a pulpit who was preaching. I then saw a snake slither across the platform in the direction of the pastor. I watched as the snake, beginning at the pastor’s feet, began to slowly coil itself around the pastor little by little until I could no longer see the pastor. I saw the pastor’s eyes go from human to one’s missing pupils and his tongue went from that of a human to a forked one of a snake.  Leviathan is known as the fleeing or gliding serpent. Snakes do not make a sound as they move, at least that is what I have seen. This serpent slithered right across the platform towards the platform making a bee line towards the pastor. What is really disturbing is that no one saw it.  Leviathan is also known as the crooked or twisting serpent. The best example of this is the discourse between Eve and the serpent as recorded in Genesis where the serpent starts out by saying, “has God said…”

I feel sorry for the assemblies that shun the prophetic. Had there been  prophets, i.e. watchmen they would have been sounding an alarm warning of the deception. In the vision above no warning was given and God’s word became twisted and no one in the assembly was warned.

The Apostle Paul commended the Berean Believers.

These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.Therefore many of them believed, and also not a few of the Greeks, prominent women as well as men. Acts 17:11-12

As believers we are to search the scriptures for ourselves as the Bereans did and were commended by the Apostle Paul. Those who only crack a Bible on Sunday and expect the Pastor to, “feed”, them are in danger of being deceived.

Deception is coming and what better way for it to come than from the mouth of someone trusted.

 

 

 

Lighting The Way

I had a dream last night where I had come to a field of grass about mid-calf height. I remember having a lit torch in my hand when I walked up to the field. I then took the torch and touched the grass in front of me and instead of burning and starting the whole field on fire the grass seemed to vanish but only enough to create a path. This continued as I would touch the grass in front of me as I walked. Jesus said that He had given us authority tread upon serpents and snakes, however, snakes that are hidden in the grass are more dangerous because you can’t see them which is the purpose of my carrying the torch in my dream. I, with the help of my torch, cleared away the tall grass thus exposing any potential plans of the enemy. 

I believe that this path was not for me alone but for others who would also be  walking along it.

I believe that I was given the torch to expose the plans of the enemy.

Are you A Disciple?

I had this dream 3 years ago but today the Lord dropped something new into my spirit that I feel led to add here as I republish the previous posting.

I had a dream the morning of 09/26/2013 . In the dream I was inside a church although not a part of the church, I was just inside observing. I saw 2 sets of pews that were full  of people on both sides with an aisle separating the pews.  Then I saw, towards the front of the church, a large cross and it was laying with the top corner of the cross and foot of the cross  positioned in such a way as for someone to stoop down and get underneath the cross and carry it.  The cross was positioned with the foot of the cross towards the pulpit and the top was facing the doors of the church. It was as if it were placed there for anyone willing to stoop down and pick it up. What I found significant is the fact that in every church I have ever been in, the cross was always standing, usually on the platform where the preacher preaches his sermon but here it was not, instead, it was among the people The people in either side of the pews paid no attention to it as they were engaged in worship getting their Holy Spirit buzz. Then I saw a young man get out of the pew, walk towards the cross,stoop down, pick it up, and then proceed to walk out of the church.  I remember people laughing at him as he did this. Sound familiar?  The young man was undeterred and carried the cross, now his cross out of the church.

What the Lord dropped into my spirit is that only the young man in my dream was His disciple. Those who stood worshiping and then who were  subsequently  laughing at the young man carrying his cross were not.

Whoever doesn’t take up his cross and follow me doesn’t deserve to be my disciple. (Mat 10:38)

Communion, A Time Of Intimacy 

I had a dream just before waking the morning of 09/09/2016 . In the dream I was seated at a small square table and in front of me was a loaf of bread and a glass of wine. Sitting across from me was the Lord Jesus. 

I am not going to get into a dispute as to whether the cup contained grape juice or wine as that had no bearing on the dream whatsoever. 

The dream, I believe was the Lord’s heart’s desire for intimacy with me and not me alone but with each one of His children. 

Communion was never supposed to be a separate event but part of a celebration meal known as the Lord’s supper as described by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians chapter 11. It was a celebration of  the finished work of the Lord  on the cross. 

Paul describes Communion as follows:

1Co 10:16 — 1Co 10:17

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.
Communion is a time of celebration as we remember what the Lord has done for us but it is also a time of intimacy with the Lord and with each other. I heard it said that the cross has both a vertical and a horizontal beam. The vertical restored our relationship with God and the horizontal restored our relationship with each other.

What Of The Cross?

​Isaiah 42:8
I am the Lord, that is My name;

And My glory I will not give to another,

Nor My praise to carved images.
In my prayer time this morning the above verse was dropped into my heart. As I continued to pray in tongues I saw the following vision.

In the vision I could see a church service going on. I saw the platform that a preacher and worship team would stand on as well as the congregation.  What I saw next was a cross and the people on the stage strategically placing themselves in front of the cross so that those in the congregation would not see the cross, only them.

Next I saw those same people begin to adorn the cross with colorful scarfs and such to make it less offensive, i.e. tone down its true meaning. Then I saw them begin to dance around the cross celebrating what they had made it out to be.

I have posted this quote from A. W. Tozer before but it bears posting again.

From this new cross has sprung a new philosophy of the Christian life, and from that new philosophy has come a new evangelical technique-a new type of meeting and a new kind of preaching. This new evangelism employs the same language as the old, but its content is not the same and its emphasis not as before.
The old cross would have no truck with the world. For Adam’s proud flesh it meant the end of the journey. It carried into effect the sentence imposed by the law of Sinai. The new cross is not opposed to the human race; rather, it is a friendly pal and, if understood aright, it is the source of oceans of good clean fun and innocent enjoyment. It lets Adam live without interference. His life motivation is unchanged; he still lives for his own pleasure, only now he takes delight in singing choruses and watching religious movies instead of singing bawdy songs and drinking hard liquor. The accent is still on enjoyment, though the fun is now on a higher plane morally if not intellectually.
The new cross encourages a new and entirely different evangelistic approach. The evangelist does not demand abnegation of the old life before a new life can be received. He preaches not contrasts but similarities. He seeks to key into public interest by showing that Christianity makes no unpleasant demands; rather, it offers the same thing the world does, only on a higher level. Whatever the sin-mad world happens to be clamoring after at the moment is cleverly shown to be the very thing the gospel offers, only the religious product is better.
The new cross does not slay the sinner, it redirects him. It gears him into a cleaner and jollier way of living and saves his self-respect. To the self-assertive it says, “Come and assert yourself for Christ.” To the egotist it says, “Come and do your boasting in the Lord.” To the thrill seeker it says, “Come and enjoy the thrill of Christian fellowship.” The Christian message is slanted in the direction of the current vogue in order to make it acceptable to the public.
The philosophy back of this kind of thing may be sincere but its sincerity does not save it from being false. It is false because it is blind. It misses completely the whole meaning of the cross.
The old cross is a symbol of death. It stands for the abrupt, violent end of a human being. The man in Roman times who took up his cross and started down the road had already said good-by to his friends. He was not coming back. He was going out to have it ended. The cross made no compromise, modified nothing, spared nothing; it slew all of the man, completely and for good. It did not try to keep on good terms with its victim. It struck cruel and hard, and when it had finished its work, the man was no more.
The race of Adam is under death sentence. There is no commutation and no escape. God cannot approve any of the fruits of sin, however innocent they may appear or beautiful to the eyes of men. God salvages the individual by liquidating him and then raising him again to newness of life.
That evangelism which draws friendly parallels between the ways of God and the ways of men is false to the Bible and cruel to the souls of its hearers. The faith of Christ does not parallel the world, it intersects it. In coming to Christ we do not bring our old life up onto a higher plane; we leave it at the cross. The corn of wheat must fall into the ground and die.
We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.
God offers life, but not an improved old life. The life He offers is life out of death. It stands always on the far side of the cross. Whoever would possess it must pass under the rod. He must repudiate himself and concur in God’s just sentence against him.
What does this mean to the individual, the condemned man who would find life in Christ Jesus? How can this theology be translated into life? Simply, he must repent and believe. He must forsake his sins and then go on to forsake himself. Let him cover nothing, defend nothing, excuse nothing. Let him not seek to make terms with God, but let him bow his head before the stroke of God’s stern displeasure and acknowledge himself worthy to die.
Having done this let him gaze with simple trust upon the risen Saviour, and from Him will come life and rebirth and cleansing and power. The cross that ended the earthly life of Jesus now puts an end to the sinner; and the power that raised Christ from the dead now raises him to a new life along with Christ.
To any who may object to this or count it merely a narrow and private view of truth, let me say God has set His hallmark of approval upon this message from Paul’s day to the present. Whether stated in these exact words or not, this has been the content of all preaching that has brought life and power to the world through the centuries. The mystics, the reformers, the revivalists have put their emphasis here, and signs and wonders and mighty operations of the Holy Ghost gave witness to God’s approval.
Dare we, the heirs of such a legacy of power, tamper with the truth? Dare we with our stubby pencils erase the lines of the blueprint or alter the pattern shown us in the Mount? May God forbid. Let us preach the old cross and we will know the old power. (A. W. Tozer, Man, the Dwelling Place of God, 1966)
I am reminded of the words of the verse from the hymn I have decided to follow Jesus where it says, “the cross before me, the world behind me no turning back l”.

Big Ben

Shortly after posting the dream about England on 08/29/2016 I saw a vision of Big Ben being struck at its base by what looked to be a missile.  Then I saw it fall just like the twin towers did in the 9-11 attack where the towers, instead of falling over, crumbled to the ground. Big Ben’s clock face was now on the ground but was undamaged. 

As to the meaning of this vision or why I saw it in haven’t a clue. I am praying about it though and will add to the post  further revelation  as it is made known.

Another Dream Concerning England 

I had a dream last night, 08/29/16, where I was seated at a long table with others discussing England and I remember that the Queen was at the head of the table. I am gathering that those at the table were in leadership of sorts. Of those gathered, there was an inner circle, if you will, of only a few and it was this circle that I was a part of in the dream. I know that inner circles tend to know more of what’s going on than do the rest as they have been given a greater deal of trust and responsibility, and in addition, have greater access to the leader.

I have no idea whatsoever as to why I keep having such dreams about England. This one is definitely one of the strangest.

There is more that happened in the dream that I will be posting as I remember and gain more clarity.

Following Jesus?

I had a dream last night where I saw Jesus walking down a dusty dirt road. In his right hand he had a shepherd’s staff. On His right I saw church buildings. As Jesus passed by I saw people streaming out of them and get behind Jesus and follow Him. Jesus, in my dream, never spoke a word; people just followed. As the people of a church building would all leave to follow Jesus, the builing that they left would collapse. I believe that the buildings were representative of beliefs, denominations, and various faiths. The reason for the building’s collapse is that as the people in my dream left their respective church buildings there was now nothing holding the, “building”, together hence it collapsed.
