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.
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.
