The Almond Tree


The Almond Tree is the first tree to blossom in Israel, to bloom or awaken, as all the other trees lay dormant or sleeping. The Hebrew word for Almond tree and watch are almost identical. The image of the Almond Tree, is an Old covenant reminder to the people of God of the watchful eye of God over his promises to set them into action. God becomes the Almond Tree to Isreal.

“”Then the Lord said to me, “Look, Jeremiah! What do you see?”And I replied, “I see a branch from an almond tree.” And the Lord said, “That’s right, and it means that I am watching, and I will certainly carry out all my plans.” – Jeremiah 1 : 11-12

The blossoming of the Almond Tree is important to the prophetic timing of God’s promises and God’s strength and power to bring those promises to past.

The watchful God who awakens his promises to his people are linked to the blossoming work of the Holy Spirit.

Today, we now live in the New Covenant, our Covenant is “In Christ”, it is not based upon us keeping our side or end of the bargain, but it is based on the fact that Christ has already kept the bargain for us. As Christians we “rest” in Christ work and obedience.

I believe there is stirring of the Holy Spirit today to awaken his people to the work of the Holy Spirit, for his new covenant people to watch and awaken to his breeze flowing from his heart. To proclaim that today is the day of the Lord’s favour. To move from an Old Covenant perspective to an “In Christ”, Holy Spirit perspective. This is a day to awaken our hearts to the harvest of the goodness of God.

I believe God is saying, “I am blossoming out my Holy Spirit, I am blossoming out my harvest. I am carrying out my promises, for it is not by power, not by might but by my Spirit. I am calling my people from out of their sleep and to awaken to Christ alive in them. Don’t be as a dormant tree and asleep, asking me for things I have already supplied and given you in Christ. Awaken to the New Covenant you now possess in Christ. This is a day of blossoming. “

The Almond Harvest

Over the past few days, God has been speaking to me about a coming Almond Tree Harvest.

Today I watched this video on the Almond Tree Harvest.

God I believe was saying – “There is a harvest coming that will be unlike any harvest of the past. It will be a Holy Spirit harvest. The enemy is trying to shake everything, to bring destruction, but the Holy Spirit will produce a harvest in hearts. It is time for Christians to focus on the goodness of God not the plans of the enemy and turn what the enemy meant for evil into good. This harvest will be effortless as the Holy Spirit moves. We will see the scripture being fulfilled – “Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit. ” The cry of God will be for his people to embrace and awaken to the Holy Spirit’s Work.
