“You have to shake the tree to get the fruit”
November 10th, 2010
Here’s a video showing an elephant shaking a morula tree to get fruit. The animals get drunk on it.
Today I heard the Lord say “ You have to shake the tree to get the fruit”. I’d seen this video before and others of animals shaking trees, and it is done with sticks by humans sometimes too. I wondered what God might say.
God aligns men to trees. And as I was listening to the book of Daniel tonight, a great example is there in
Dan 4:10-17 NKJV
10 “These were the visions of my head while on my bed:
I was looking, and behold, A tree in the midst of the earth, And its height was great. 11 The tree grew and became strong; Its height reached to the heavens, and it could be seen to the ends of all the earth. 12 Its leaves were lovely, Its fruit abundant, And in it was food for all. The beasts of the field found shade under it, The birds of the heavens dwelt in its branches, And all flesh was fed from it.
13 “I saw in the visions of my head while on my bed, and there was a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven. 14 He cried aloud and said thus:
‘Chop down the tree and cut off its branches, Strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the beasts get out from under it, And the birds from its branches. 15 Nevertheless leave the stump and roots in the earth, Bound with a band of iron and bronze, In the tender grass of the field. Let it be wet with the dew of heaven, And let him graze with the beasts on the grass of the earth. 16 Let his heart be changed from that of a man, Let him be given the heart of a beast, and let seven times pass over him.
17 ‘This decision is by the decree of the watchers, and the sentence by the word of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.’
Dan 4:19-27 NKJV Daniel Explains the Second Dream
19 Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, was astonished for a time, and his thoughts troubled him. So the king spoke, and said, “Belteshazzar, do not let the dream or its interpretation trouble you.” Belteshazzar answered and said, “My lord, may the dream concern those who hate you, and its interpretation concern your enemies!
20 “The tree that you saw, which grew and became strong, whose height reached to the heavens and which could be seen by all the earth, 21 whose leaves were lovely and its fruit abundant, in which was food for all, under which the beasts of the field dwelt, and in whose branches the birds of the heaven had their home — 22 it is you, O king, who have grown and become strong; for your greatness has grown and reaches to the heavens, and your dominion to the end of the earth.
23 “And inasmuch as the king saw a watcher, a holy one, coming down from heaven and saying, ‘Chop down the tree and destroy it, but leave its stump and roots in the earth, bound with a band of iron and bronze in the tender grass of the field; let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let him graze with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him’;
24 this is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the Most High, which has come upon my lord the king: 25 They shall drive you from men, your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make you eat grass like oxen. They shall wet you with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over you, till you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses.
26 “And inasmuch as they gave the command to leave the stump and roots of the tree, your kingdom shall be assured to you, after you come to know that Heaven rules. 27 Therefore, O king, let my advice be acceptable to you; break off your sins by being righteous, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor. Perhaps there may be a lengthening of your prosperity.”
Whoa, whoa, whoa……the Lord is so strong over me with the perception of this being applicable to the church NOW that has tainted His name and the perception of Who He is !
Now that I think about it , another situation applies related to this. This week a friend called who was told to move down to this area to live in the home of a supposed “apostle”. Only to find that God had sent her here to correct a very deluded man. How deceived ? To the point that porn is ok, and that his own son recognizes the folly of his ways. To the point that he is so deluded he told a woman that the Lord told him to have sex with her so she could get delivered of witchcraft ! He is married, he has an online “ministry”. Family is totally out of order, wife barely able to keep family up and out of debt and is working. Yet he sits home in adultery, totally rank with deception. My friend confronted him and now he’s telling people “he’s under attack !” He has no idea the MERCY of the LORD to send this person to correct him.
So listening for the word of the LORD…I hear the still small voice saying:
“ I am HOLY, and I AM JUST. How can I bring the lost into a decaying and putrid church, that is given over to harlotry and perversion of My Word in their teaching and in their actions ? Pastors, prophets, apostles, evangelists, and teachers, lying with other men, lying with other women than their wives, lying with their own children, lying with the children of others ? Shall I not judge such defiance ? Have I drawn you to Myself only to have you spit on My Word and the sacrifice of My SON ? Do you think I am blind to your condition oh sons of men ? I’m SHAKING to bring forth true FRUIT ! SHAKE, shake, shake ! I will shake until the fruit is ripe and falls off the tree to feed the nations !”
Num 15:39-41 NKJV And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined, 40 and that you may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy for your God. 41 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord your God.” [ referring to the tassel on the talit ]
“ Am I a GOD that is blind, deaf and dumb ? I am not made of wood or stone! I am the LIVING GOD, the CREATOR of heaven and earth and all things in the heavens and the earth. I am not a piece of clay that you can manipulate into your own image of who you think I should be ! I created you for love’s sake, yet you have not loved Me back. You have twisted the scriptures to mean what YOU want them to mean. You have twisted the hearts of others by your lust, pride and manipulations. You have taken from the poor and made yourselves rich while the poor die from cancer and no one cares that they are carried away. You portend to have care for those I drew to you when you obeyed Me. But you have turned my house from a house of prayer to a house of perversion. You run in the way of Balaam, and Ahab, Sodom & Gommorah and you think that I am a powerless God, just because I’ve not done anything terrible yet to correct you ?
Little do you realize that I have been patient, and urged you through many of my prophets to return to the LORD of HOSTS ! I have loved you with an everlasting love, yet you manipulate the crowds for money, and build your own kingdoms. And I have a word for you this night. The word is ‘ NO MORE!’ No more will you build your own kingdom. Consequence is coming, so yet again I’m giving you a chance to return to your First Love.
If you don’t turn from making my church a theater for entertainment gods and goddesses, then I will come upon you swift as lightening. I will remove your lampstand. I will make you to eat grass, like Nebuchadnezzar. By this you will once again learn the fear of the LORD is a strong tower. The righteous ones run into it and are SAVED ! For you have lost your grip on reality and fallen into your own backslidden ways, and the cries of My people have arisen to My nostrils, and I will not allow the grace to you, you once have had for much longer. IF you repent, you will be saved. But you will now experience a shaking which will prove the fruit on the tree.”
Mark 11:12-14 NKJV Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. 13 And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.” And His disciples heard it.
“ I am coming like a thief in the night” says the Lord . Will you be ready ?
Have you bought oil for your lamps ? Have you spent time with ME, soaking up the oil of My presence ? For I am coming OUT OF SEASON. At at time you many not suspect. Will I find FAITH ? Will I find FRUIT on your tree ?
Are you reaching out to the lost ? What have you done with the gifts I have given you ? What are you doing NOW, to expand your heart to love those whom I love ? Some of you think that I only love the church because I died for you. But I died for the sins of the WHOLE WORLD. Exclusivity is something I did NOT teach !
I have come to bring MY KINGDOM.
MY KINGDOM HAS NO END !
MY KINGDOM will never be destroyed !
MY KINGDOM is built on ME.
It is only by GRACE that YOU can do anything.
False apostles and prophets and leaders abound, but MY KINGDOM will be established. I WILL RESTORE the ancient foundations through my true apostles, and prophets. I am patient, but time is short. I MUST SHAKE the kingdoms of men. So cry out. Cry out for the souls of men. Cry out for MY presence. I AM THE RESOURCE for all you need. Do not look to MAN. For men will become more rare than you can imagine ! TRUST IN ME ALONE.
I have plans for My remnant that cannot even be fathomed by your imagination, because the new thing I will do, is beyond your imagination. I have prepared a great army. I am putting the fitting touches on My garden of reknown. Seek Me while you can ! Don’t run away from My presence. Do not settle for just a little bit ! Would a child be content with only a few minutes of your time ?
Put away all your fears sons and daughters of the Most High GOD ! Trust in ME with all of your heart, and lean NOT on your OWN understanding. TRUST GOD and worship HIM ALONE. Put away your idolatry of men. IF I BE LIFTED UP, I WILL DRAW ALL MEN TO MYSELF ! I am not a building.
I am not a man like you. And NO MAN is a god like ME. I AM GOD and there is no other. Stop promoting men and women and promote the SON OF GOD !!!! BE BOLD !!! BE COURAGEOUS !!! SPEAK THE WORD ! DECLARE MY PROMISES ! Worship ME in the beauty of HOLINESS. Be not deceived. I said be HOLY as I am holy ! “
1 Peter 1:13-16 NKJV Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”
Rev 21:6-8 NKJV And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
