The Word of Lord came to me, Jeremiah, “What do you see Jeremiah “I see the branch of an almond tree I replied. The Lord said to me. “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see My Word is fulfilled.”
The almond tree is one of the first that rises and wakes from its winter sleep in Israel, in January, by March it fruits to maturity. The tree represents God’s prophetic utterances to Jeremiah of the forthcoming judgements coming to earth. The Hebrew translation (shoked) represents God’s hastening.
Matthew 24 and Revelation 6 forecast disease pandemics in the time before Jesus’s return.
God watches over His Word. The Hebrew word (shaqad) means to be alert.
As believers we are His instruments, covered in our spiritual armour and washed in His blood.
Standing in victory under the shadow of His wings, we proclaim His Word prophetically over the Nations.
A frightened world needs a fearless church!
So is My Word that goes forth from My mouth; It Will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire, and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
“No weapon forged against you will prevail and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me” declares the Lord.
Lift up your heads you gates, be lifted up you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.
Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first speaking to me like a trumpet said. “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place, after this. “
And I heard a sound from heaven like a roar of rushing waters, and like a peal of thunder. The sound was like that of harpists playing their harps.
Let us unite and declare these verses, standing shoulder to shoulder in the spirit, to the north, the south, the east and the west. For a new sound from heaven, to be released upon the earth.
