It seems GOD is letting us know…something is up with HIS priesthood. End of January is when the almond trees bud and bloom in Israel; a fact I discovered only after HE impressed me to paint this.
In Moses’ day, it was the supernatural budding of Aaron’s rod that established him as a priest before all the people. They were complaining as to why Aaron and not them. GOD gave the sign of HIS choice by allowing Aaron’s rod to bud, bloom and produce mature almonds at the same time. Even after this great sign, the people went into rebellion against Aaron and Moses again… what did Aaron do? As a priest before GOD, he interceded for GOD’S mercy towards them. This is also what we are called to do today during these times of rebellion…INTERCEDE.
“The secret of almond blossoms… A few nights ago, I was watching a live internet broadcast of two prophetic men (Paul Keith Davis and Jason Hopper) who were sharing what they believed God was showing them for this year. They shared that 2013 was the year of the almond blossom which represents: AWAKENING, COMMISSION, SUPERNATURAL BIRTH, AND RELEASE FROM HIDDENNESS!! My heart leapt with a resounding YES”!
