The REAL TREE of LIFE

It has always been interesting to me that mankind is continually warned to read and understand God’s Book. Yet, God says that it is His Creation, not mankind that continually groans to be rid of the curse of Sin. It is Creation that is anxiously waiting for the Second Coming of Christ. Mankind seems to care less about the topic.

Man throughout the centuries has ignored the God that created him. God in turn has stated that there will only be a Remnant (the few) throughout ALL of history who will find Him and gain Salvation. Man, to whom God gave a mind to reason with, Man who bears the Image of His Creator…is blind, naked, and deaf and unable to see, touch or hear the words of God because of his arrogance and pride in himself and his accomplishments.

But the Creation, having not been made in the image of God, having no ability to reason, or to think…KNOW their Creator. The Creation as God Himself has said, groans bearing the weight of the curse, and anxiously awaits its removal and the re-creation of a new earth promised by God. From the very beginning, from a seedling, the trees focus is upward to its Creator. In life trees performed their job, their role, their calling before their Creator in loving obedience.

They provided cover and homes for animals. They provided the coolness of shade, and bore fruit for mankind. They provided oxygen for the earth, so we would have an atmosphere conducive to life. And they sacrificed their very essence for the benefit of their appointed caretakers. Yes, mankind was given dominion over the trees and over all creation by God.

But the main calling of trees was to lift up HOLY hands and clap in worship to their Creator when the Holy Spirit moved them by the wind. They know the story that is written in the Word of God. They know the story that man continues to ignore. They know its beginning because they were there. They live in hope because they know its ending as they groan and wait for their Redemption. And they do for us what we are too ignorant to do for ourselves or for others. They pray that our eyes would be opened and we would catch the vision of The Lord HIGH and LIFTED up upon HIS Throne.

You see God has not only planted the knowledge of Himself in each human being, but also within the trees, the birds, the animals. The knowledge of the Creator is within everything He has created. He is Lord of the Living and Lord of the Dead. He is Lord of the FOUND and Lord of the LOST. Both the Living and the Dead, will bow down before their Creator by the power of the Holy Spirit and give HIM PRAISE for who HE IS.

Trees Never Bury Their Dead

Trees Never Bury Their Dead

The Creation, having not been made in the image of God, and having no ability to reason,
or to think…KNOW their Creator. The Creation as God Himself has said, groans bearing
the weight of the curse, and anxiously awaits its removal and the re-creation of a
new earth promised by God.

When one of us dies a memorial service is held. Pleasant words are spoken about us by loved
ones and friends. Our life is portrayed by photograph’s that surround our coffin. It is an
event for the living, not the dead.

Then solemnly we bury our dead. The dead are remembered but for a short time, then forgotten by
generations to come. They are lost behind the veil of time.

Not so with Trees. For the Trees never bury their dead. In life the trees are wrapped in garments
of leaves that God decreed would reach up to the heavens and worship Him.

From the very beginning, from a seedling, the trees focus is upward to its Creator. In life
trees performed their job, their role, and calling before their Creator in loving obedience.
They provided cover and homes for animals. They provided the coolness of shade, and bore fruit
for mankind. They provided oxygen for the earth, so we would have an atmosphere conducive to life.
And they sacrificed their very essence for the benefit of their appointed caretakers.

Yes, mankind was given dominion over the trees and over all creation by God.
But the main calling of trees was to lift up HOLY hands and clap in worship to their Creator
when the Holy Spirit moved them by the wind.

They know the story that is written in the Word of God. They know the story that man continues to ignore.
They know it’s beginning because they were there. They live in hope because they
know it’s ending as they groan and wait for their Redemption.

And they do for us what we are too ignorant to do for ourselves or for others.
They pray that our eyes would be opened and we would catch the vision of our LORD lifted HIGH up upon HIS Throne.

Can Nature Really Sing ?

Can Nature Really Sing?

The Word of God speaks of a time in the future when all Heaven and Nature will sing a triumphant new song.

Take a moment to think about that. If your are like me I immediately think of my favorite artists and huge orchestral refrains creating a symphony of sound and joy created by instrument’s that mankind has made.

We think like that because all we have known is Earth.
But that is not what this is about. This is about the Sound of Joy lifted up by creatures and nature before the God of Creation.

In Psalm 96:1 it says… sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!

When I was a small boy and I misbehaved my father, who always disciplined with reason said to me in his broken English; Ernie, you need to be a listen boy… you need to listen!

There is so much noise in the world that we have trouble listening to anything. Yet sound is all around us. In fact there are people and equipment within the scientific community devoted to recording the sounds of the living earth.

Think with me for a moment. I can mention types of sound and you will hear a sound bite in your mind. “Crickets chirping, frogs croaking, an eagles shrill cry, a dogs bark, a lions roar, whales calling each other beneath the sea, a baby laughing, leaves of trees rustling in the wind, running water, waves coming in onto the shore, sea gulls calling to each other, raindrops against windows in a storm, and the sound you hear but cannot ever see…the wind.

I could go on and on and on. Amazing is it not? All these sounds and millions more were created by God. They represent a daily worship chorus of one united voice that gives praise to the God that created everything for the purpose of Praising HIM.

What about the sounds of heaven? What comes to your mind? What is the most beautiful instrument created by God to Praise and Worship HIM?

Have you ever heard a choral ensemble, made up of voices only? Have you listened to a boy’s choir singing hymns in a cathedral? Have you listened to accapella singing? Yes, beautiful pure sounds come forth from human voices.

But human voices are no match for the purity of Angelic Voices that are HOLY, and without sin. God created the HOLY Angels before us to worship and sing Praises to Him. Did you know the HOLY Angels provided musical accompaniment to the greatest voice of all…the Voice of God at the Creation when HE spoke the Universe into existence.

Job 38:6-8…”When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy.”

Wishing you JOY in the MORNING….this LORDS DAY 12-8-2013
