Two Baskets of Figs

Distracted – a slow death!

DREAM
Walking up a berm towards a beach. I reach the high point of the berm/ridge where I can see the beach and the ocean out to the horizon. I notice crocodiles sunbathing and walking on the beach. I can also see crocodiles coming up out of the ocean. I then observe people on the beach sunbathing and walking. They seem not to care about the crocodiles among them.

I see crocodiles in death spirals on the beach. They have infants/toddlers in their jaws. Again, the adults are undisturbed by this violence happening right next to them.

No one is playing on the beach. They are all distracted with books, phones, tablets, sleeping, etc.

I am horrified and disturbed by what I see. The Spirit of God pointed to Hosea 3 and Revelations 4.

 

DECIPHER
The Alligators are demons.

The Adults are backslidden Christians, distracted Christians, un-engaged Christians, hardened Christians ? specifically leaders.

The Children are the young and very young in Christ.

The dream is referencing time: now and into the future.

 

Hosea 4 ? is talking about current state.

  1. The Spirit of Harlotry (unfaithful relationship with God)
  2. Rejecting Sound Doctrine
  3. Weak Leaders

Revelation 3 ? is talking about action

  1. Wake Up ? revive old unfulfilled promises/prophecies V2
  2. Get Back In Line ? Repent and Obey V3
  3. Make Your Choice ? With God or Against V15
  4. Be Burned ? Holy Fire Now ? not down the road V18 V19
  5. Overcome ? overcome what God presents to you about you, overcome the heat of his fire (this is not about overcoming enemies). This is about overcoming yourself. You can wear white because you allowed the cleansing of your own blemishes. V5 V21
  6. Hear and Heed ? open connection with heaven 24/7, no matter where you are, heaven in operation in you 24/7
  7. Be limitless ? There is an open door but the church had little power. In fact, only enough to endure (which you will receive a reward for). Enduring ?for a time? is a first level reward. Enduring for longer than the heavenly allotted amount of time is stupidity. Endure then move in power! V7 V8

The last thing I noted was “Adult Christians” and “Christian Leaders” had not a care in the world for the New in Christ. There was an air of ?they have to figure it out.? No leadership, no friendship, no teaching, no helping, no empathy or sympathy. It was hard hearts telling soft hearts to get hard.

God is calling “Christians” back to personal relationships, invested relationships, fatherly and motherly relationships. Christian leaders have to get over screwed up people and get back to personal evangelism that includes discipling, fellowshipping, teaching, exhorting, rebuking, disciplining, pastoring, etc.

LEADERS – you can?t take anybody where you haven?t already gone. Ask Moses and Joshua and Jesus!

 

Blood & Soil

Blood and Soil. A different meaning for a generation past. For this generation it’s a google search.

Blood and Soil was used by an evil leader. This proclamation was prophetic, even in it’s most corrupted form. The Minister of Food and Agriculture in the Nazi Party pulled these two words together. To summarize, he believed that the race in the northern part of the country were rooted in the soil (ie: creators of THE European race). Therefore they were the prized race. This Blood and Soil (Neuadel aus Blut und Boden) was the foundation for manipulating and instigating all of Germany. The irony in this statement was that the blood of the jewish race would be entrenched in the soil once again.

Let us correct this horrific combination of Blood and Soil. The first mention of Blood and Soil is in Genesis 4:10 AMP (read chapter 4 for context).

10?The?Lord?said, ?What have you done? The voice of your brother?s [innocent] blood is crying out to Me from the ground [for justice].?11?And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother?s [shed] blood from your hand.

Blood – LIFE
Soil/Ground – Earth (Life giving)

Blood is plural in the script – Referencing the life of the individual and the LIVES of those that were to come after him (generations of his children). The text has a very important lesson. Blood speaks. It has a sound – it’s own sound.

Ground has been charged to be live giving. From the ground were humans created and to the ground will they be returned. It is a partner with humans and creation. The ground will work for or against the human race. The blood spilled in Genesis 2 used the mouth of the ground for it’s sound to be heard. Blood and Soil SPEAK!

In Revelation 6:9-11 AMP

9?When He (the Lamb) broke open the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained [out of loyalty to Christ].?10?They cried in a loud voice, saying, ?O Lord, holy and true, how long now before You will sit in judgment and avenge our blood on those [unregenerate ones] who dwell on the earth??

In Hebrews 12:22-24 ESV

22?But you have come to?Mount Zion and to the city of the living God,?the heavenly Jerusalem, and to?innumerable angels in festal gathering,23?and to?the assemblyof the firstborn who are?enrolled in heaven, and to?God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,24?and to Jesus,?the mediator of a new covenant, and to?the sprinkled blood?that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

Blood is very precious to God. Blood has a purposeful partnership with the ground/soil that has not been properly understood.

To be continued…

Jeremiah 24

Time is calling for a line to be drawn once again.?The grey will be attracted to the white or the black. The weak will be consumed. The indecisive will succumb to the loudest voice. The feeble and the spineless will be bent over.

The plumb line is readied to measure the oppressors.

The sifting of the planted has begun.

Where will you be found when time calls your name?

Will the hearers hear? Will the seers see?

Will a people rise up with Kingdom identity, Kingdom knowledge and Kingdom authority?

Will a people rise up that understand time, seasons, shifts and change?

Where are the bold ones? Where are the audacious and brazen?

Who will measure themselves against Glory and find Holiness? Who has set themselves apart?

There are hungry hearts and I see the desire for My Heaven but their desire is mixed with other desires. Who will claw their way to My throne on their bellies away from the grasp of selfish desires? Who? Who will stand against this god of desire? Who will stand against their own self? Who will withstand My discipline?

Do you qualify as ripened fig? A choice fig – planted, fertilized, set aside, watered, pruned and blossomed. I chose you! You must choose this day who you will serve. Choose who you will be obedient to. Choose your government and settle it!

Jeremiah 24
Baskets of Figs and the Returnees

1?After Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had taken Jeconiah [who was also called Coniah and Jehoiachin] the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, and the princes of Judah [along] with the craftsmen and smiths into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon, the?Lord?showed me [in a vision] two baskets of figs set before the temple of the?Lord.?2?One basket had very good figs, like the figs that are the first to ripen; but the other basket had very bad figs, so rotten that they could not be eaten.?3?Then the?Lord?said to me, ?What do you see, Jeremiah?? And I said, ?Figs, the good figs, very good; and the bad?figs, very bad, so rotten that they cannot be eaten.?

4?Again the word of the?Lord?came to me, saying,?5??Thus says the?Lord, the God of Israel, ?Like these good figs, so I will regard as good the captives of Judah, whom I have sent from this place into the land of the Chaldeans.?6?For I will set My eyes on them for good, and I will bring them again to this land; and I will build them up and not overwhelm them, and I will plant them and not uproot them.?7?I will give them a heart to know Me, [understanding fully] that I am the?Lord; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.

8??And as for the bad figs, which are so rotten that they cannot be eaten,? surely thus says the?Lord, ?so I will abandon Zedekiah king of Judah and his princes, and the remnant of Jerusalem who remain in this land and those who live in the land of Egypt.?9?I will make them a focus of ridicule?and?disappointment [tossed back and forth] among all the kingdoms of the earth, a [notorious] disgrace, a byword, a taunt and a curse in all places where I will scatter them.?10?I will send the sword, famine and virulent disease among them until they are consumed from the land which I gave to them and to their fathers.??
