THE PARABLE OF THE DEAD TREE
Our Creator's word defines a type of character that He is building His
eternal family with.
He is building His family from those who will cleave unto Him with their
entire existence and with all of their heart and with their entire mind.
Cleaving unto Him includes
hearkening to Him by trusting and obeying Him in all things.
In Deuteronomy 13 He explains that
anyone who leads another away from the pathway that He gave to us through His servant Moses, that they are a false prophet
or a false dreamer of dreams.
In verse 3 He says that He allowed for the false shepherds who lead
others astray from His pathway to exist.
He gave us the reason why He has allowed for them to
He says that the reason that He allowed for them to exist is to test us or to prove us
whether we love Him with our entire life and with all of our heart or not.
Then is verse 4 He
4 You shall WALK AFTER YEHWEH ELOHIYM and FEAR HIM and KEEP
HIS COMMANDMENTS (with the statutes and judgments) and OBEY HIS VOICE, and
YOU SHALL SERVE HIM and CLEAVE UNTO HIM.
The question for you is, are you doing these 6 things or are you following a false prophet or a false dreamer of
The dreamer of dreams that He speaks of might be yourself.
It might be your own heart that is led by satan and his crew that is leading you from doing these 6 things.
In the next verse, He says that the one who takes you away from these 6 things should be put to death.
This includes yourself if your heart is leading you from these 6 basic premises that we must do in order to be found
in YEHWEH's favor.
Obeying His voice is all-inclusive.
putting our complete trust in Him in all things, including fleeing now that He has revealed the abomination of desolation.
He says cursed is the man who makes his flesh or the arm of man his strength.
example of fearing Him and obeying His voice is found in Abraham.
When Abraham lifted up the knife
to slay Isaac per YEHWEH's instruction to do so, YEHWEH's messenger said;
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And YEHWEH's angel called to him out of heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham and he
said, behold (referring to Abraham beholding the ram that was caught in the brush).
12 And he said; do not stretch forth your hand upon the young man and do not do anything
to him: because NOW YEHWEH KNOWS THAT YOU FEAR HIM seeing that you have not spared your
only son from Him. (referring to his only son through his wife Sarah)
at this moment that Abraham was sealed into YEHWEH's eternal family.
He reached a point that he
was going to trust and obey YEHWEH no matter what and leave the consequences to Him.
day YEHWEH gave to me a parable through an event that happened to me on a physical plain.
this parable to illustrate what it means to cleave unto Him and to not let go of Him and that He will cleave unto us and not
let us be broken off from Him if we do.
It happened when my wife and I were cutting down a large
dead tree for firewood.
Even the firewood part of this parable is huge in significance and I will
get to that in a bit.
The tree was standing next to another even larger tree that was still alive.
I made the front cut and then the back cut and then it just stood there stubbornly without moving.
We tried to push it but it did not budge.
We then went and got the latter and a tow rope
and another rope along with a heavy duty come-along.
And I attached to it as high as I could and
began to attempt to ratchet it down.
To my surprise, it just kept bowing in the middle.
The top of it and its base would not move.
This created a very volatile situation because
of all of the tension that was on the rope.
The amount of tension that built up was incredible.
But the tree just kept bowing and it was a very thick and solid tree.
The heavy duty
rope eventually snapped.
And I ended up quadrupling it and even then, it looked as though the
tow rope hooks or tow rope itself would not hold up to the immense pressure that they were under.
could barely move the ratchet one click at a time but the top of the tree would not budge.
way that the middle of this very thick tree bowed was one of the most incredible things that I have ever seen.
Then I beseeched YEHWEH for help and it gave way and it came crashing down with a very great fall.
Even hidden within its fall was an incredible slice of the pie that He showed later when He gave me the interpretation
of this event.
As I ratcheted away, I had planned an exit sprint for when the tree started coming
down because I was in its reach standing by the tree that I was ratcheting from.
But when it finally
gave way, a force made me freeze in place.
And the tree slammed quickly to the ground right beside
me within inches.
If I had run, it would have landed on me because it came down exceedingly quickly
because of all of the pressure pulling it that created the bow in it that launched it my way.
turns out that when the dead tree was still alive, the top of it had grown around a branch that was towards the top of the
larger green tree that was next to it.
I will call this parable the
parable of the dead tree.
Here is the interpretation of this parable that YEHWEH
gave to me;
While the tree that we cut down was still alive; it grew next to YEHWEH through eating
from the tree of life.
It grew so close to Him that it cleaved unto Him by growing around His
branch when His branch grew forth.
The branch that it cleaved unto was representative of the Most
High's Son and this branch became like an anchor point for the tree.
But something happened that
caused the tree to die.
It was still anchored to the branch on a physical plain, but it still
Yesterday I spoke about how the clean and unclean statutes testify that if we become like
dead people before YEHWEH's face, that the atoning blood of His first born Son departs from covering us.
These statutes testify that we become unclean before His face if we do not walk in His instruction manual.
And they testify that when we are unclean before His face, that we are cut off from the atoning sacrifice of His
Therefore we are cut off from being His seed.
are like walking dead people before His face when this happens.
The atoning blood that covers
our transgressions if we are walking in His covenant is the blood that flows from His branch.
dead tree is symbolic of being cut off from the branch that holds us to Him through the tree of life.
is YEHWEH's word that was made to be in the flesh of His first born Son that became the branch that ties us to Him.
The tree that wove itself around the branch died because even though it was still woven around the branch on a physical
plain or on the surface, it was not woven into the branch in spirit and in truth.
of christianity says that they are woven into the branch.
But you are full of lies and hypocrisy.
You are actually woven into a make believe branch.
There is a reason why Yehshua likened
the religious of the day back then to white washed tombs.
They had omitted the weightier matters
of the Torah;
They had omitted YEHWEH's righteous judgments.
They had omitted true belief in putting their trust in His word.
They had omitted having a brokenness for all of the abominations done in their midst, even in their own hearts.
more so is the case with the religion of christianity today that omits His Torah all together, along with trampling His Son's
shed blood underfoot by using it as a license for transgressing against His Torah?
of the dead tree shows that no matter how much we even cleave unto His word on a physical plain, or say that we cleave unto
it with our mouths, if we have omitted the weightier matters of His word, we are shut off and we cease from being His seed.
If this is you, you will not become His planting in the millennium unless you turn from your hypocrisy.
Your roots have to be rooted in the living water.
My having to beseech YEHWEH to bring
down the tree is representative of the prayers of the saints.
The prayer of the saints is the
prayer that Yehshua taught us to pray, Father, that your will will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
The Most High's saints came to a point in cleaving unto Him where He taught them that in order for His will to be
done on earth as it is in heaven, that all that opposes His will must come crashing down.
became their petition to Him so that His will would be done on earth as it is in heaven.
it was an angel that held me in place or simply YEHWEH's spirit telling me to do so when He brought the tree down, I do not
I just know that His hand was in both the tree crashing down and Him protecting me from
And I know that it came crashing down because it was dead because it was broken off
from the branch that kept it standing up until then.
And this is symbolic of Christianity being
And even though it has stood even though it is dead, it will soon come crashing down.
YEHWEH's hand will see to it.
This is my prayer, along with it being the prayer of all
of the saints.
All of you who are not cleaving in your flesh and in your spirit unto the Most
High through His servant the branch, which was made to be His word, will soon be cut asunder and you will come crashing down
like the parable of the dead tree shows.
Only those of you who are inseparable from Him through
His branch who was given the name of His word will be left standing in the days ahead.
of you will become firewood in His wrath, His word says so.
Yes, even this is recorded.
It is recorded in several places.
And standing with His word is standing with it in both
spirit and in truth.
YEHWEH's word testifies that it is those who do whom He is building His eternal
It is those who will cleave unto Him with their entire existence and with their entire
heart and with all of their mind.
It is such a life and such heart that cleaves unto Him in this
way that He will cleave unto that He will not let be broken away from Him.
Inseparable for eternity.
Thus saith YEHWEH Elohiym.
