This morning when I awoke I saw in my field of vision bright green foliage on what could have been long stems or branches. Streams of clear water was sprinkling these young plants from above.
Initially, I thought I was being shown giant Italian Parsley leaves but that didn’t make sense. After a quick search online, I found a picture that accurately resembles what was shown and then I understood.
We know from Jesus’ parable that the fig tree represents Israel (and the grafted church). A people prophesied to ‘blossom and bud’ and ‘put forth new leaves’ during latter day events coinciding with the end of an age and the return of the Lord. The water sprinkling these rich, green plants represent the operations of the Holy Spirit made available through the finished works of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the thriving leaves symbolize growth, restoration and faith! Praise GOD!
Location of visions is often very important for interpretation. It was carefully noted that the leaves were positioned near an open door, two white candles and an urn in the form of an angel holding flowers and heralding a message of Love. After prayerfully thinking about the vision, it was understood that I was being shown prophetic events as declared by Jesus in Matthew Chapter 24.
The position of the vision appeared on my right side which aligns with the East (geographical location of Israel – the right side is also a side of righteousness). The leaves positioned near the open door symbolize the imminent timing of prophetic events disclosed in Matthew Chapter 24. A time demonstrative of increasing earthquakes, pestilence, earthly cataclysms, famines, rumors of war, wars, cold hearts, betrayals, corruption, immorality and lawlessness on many different levels. It includes a time of persecution and the emergence of many false christs and prophets. It is a time that will be marked with such great deception that even the very elect risk being deceived (thankfully the Lord will shorten the days for them.) The two white candles represent witnesses who are lit and on fire with the Holy Spirit and the Word; they are called by GOD to preach in righteousness the gospel of salvation before the end comes. They might even symbolize and/or represent the Two Witnesses of Revelation. (Rev. 11).
Jesus instructed that when all these things begin to happen to know that the time of the end coinciding with His return is ‘at the door’. And that the generation who witnesses these events should recognize the times! Times that are disclosed in the Books of Daniel and Revelation. But as unprecedented as the upheaval of those days will be, Jesus also disclosed in this chapter that He would send His angels to gather up His elect from the four corners of the earth. A declaration that fits in meaning with Apostle Paul who taught that the faithful would be “taken up in the air” to be with the Lord and other faithful Believers who have gone on before us (the angelic urn – 1 Thess. 4:13-18). They are transformed Saints who, during their earthly lives, had offered fragrant and aromatic prayers to GOD (the flowers – Rev. 5:8). Saints with a loving heart for GOD and HIS people!
“…..Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of GOD in heaven.” (Matt. 22:23–30.)
We also know that the abomination of desolation will “stand” during those days. He is here already but has not yet been fully revealed (my personal belief based on a previous vision and the subject of a future message, Lord willing.) No one knows the exact timing of the return of the Lord and the gathering of the elect. But, as already noted, the Lord instructed that the generation who sees these things should recognize that the timing is at the door (near). And that this particular generation will not pass until all these things take place!
“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you see all these things know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.” (Mat. 24:32-35)
“Be Ready At Any Hour.” (Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ).
(I just now noticed that this vision was shown following my last posted message entitled: ‘Oh Jerusalem Jerusalem’. It was the last parable declared by Jesus in Chapter 23:37-39 – before Chapter 24 begins. GOD works in continuous and mysterious ways!)
