PIXI saw a little tree with reddish leaves budding out about 1 inch or so.


We used to have a flaming Ash tree and I felt the buds I saw were such.  However that tree is only flaming red in autumn, time for death to self and preparation for deeper roots of winter.


Isa 61:2-3  AMP

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.


QUICKENED COMMENTS Jane Hamon: Year of Beauty From Ashes  3/07/13


...the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing for you because the Lord your God loves you. Deuteronomy 23:5-6

Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around. Proverbs 13:12 (MSG)

A Turn Around Year!


This will be a year of tremendous turn-around for those who are aligning themselves to the purposes of God and who are obeying His voice.


It is a year where God will give us beauty for our ashes, the oil of joy for our grief and mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness (see Isaiah 61:3).

ASHES 9/11/01

As I watched the symbols of world-wide commerce fall into a plumb of ashes… as I saw people running from the ash ‘bomb’ and suddenly overcome as it swept past them… as I watched fire trucks plow through ashes… as I watched survivors board buses, literally caked white in ashes, I was reminded of these scriptures:


"I had heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance."  (Job 42:6 NLT)


“Job’s final statement was not unlike Psalm 102 where it says, “I eat ashes instead of my food. My tears run down into my drink because of your anger and wrath.





{From article called “The Lord’s Heart For Intercession”  from Bob Jones and Keith Davis - April 15, 1999.}


“…They will be able to extinguish portions of these fires as their prayers become heavenly "precipitation". The Lord told Bob that the fires cannot be stopped, however, we can prevent them from occurring all at one time and their effects can be curtailed. These are spiritual fires that will be verified by natural fires.

The Lord instructed Bob to announce to the church, "DO NOT FAINT AT THIS TIME FOR THE FIRES WILL LEAVE THE ASHES OF RENEWAL." These events are part of the preparation in righteousness necessary for the coming harvest. Beware when they say peace and prosperity for that is when sudden destruction will come…”

{end quote}





As the years of shaking mount, even as the birth pangs of a travailing woman, I AM drawing all things to a climax.  That which belongs to Me will be separated unto Me and purified.  That which does not belong to Me will be increasingly warned, lest they be separated from Me for eternity.


The fuller’s soap and the refiner’s fire have one thing in common… ashes. The refiner’s fire burns the dross and leaves the ashes.  Fuller’s soap is made from ashes and oil.  It is the ashes of repentance that cleanses soiled garments. Lay low, bowing your heart in humility before Me.  I will mix the blood of My Son, and the oil of the Holy Spirit with the ashes of your life and offer mercy.  I will restore your losses and join you forever with Me.


Those that stand proud and defiant, hardening their hearts with willful sinning, will receive judgment.  Judgment is My last option before eternal separation. Those that leave Me no other choice, I will judge.  Even in judgment I love with an everlasting love. All things are coming to harvest.  My house will be full before the door is shut.


Mal 3:2,3

But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soapAnd he shall sit as a refiner and purifer of silverand he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold





I see My dear ones working so hard.  Many are working in the fireplaces of life, shoveling heavy loads and for little thanks or pay.  Covered in ashes, with heavy hearts they continue to serve.  Oh how I love these hidden servants of great honor!  My blood runs through their veins and I earnestly seek them to give them rest.


I have your shoe, the one made just for you in the palm of My hand.  When I knock on your door, will you give Me your foot?  The walk that I have prepared for you is transparent royalty.  You will find that as I slip your foot into place, that the eyes of your understanding will transform your life, your walk and your identity into the royalty that you really are. Suddenly you will see My purpose in all that you do, and the cinders will change from ashes into diamonds as you discover the secrets of Who you are in Me.


Est 4:1-2  & Est 8:15-16  NKJV

When Mordecai learned all that had happened, he tore his clothes and put on sackcloth and ashes, and went out into the midst of the city. He cried out with a loud and bitter cry. He went as far as the front of the king's gate, for no one might enter the king's gate clothed with sackcloth....  So Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, with a great crown of gold and a garment of fine linen and purple; and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad. The Jews had light and gladness, joy and honor.


Isa 61:2-3  NKJV

To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn,  to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.




HEARD:  Purpose for waiting on the Lord. Yes they had a fire.  It’s OK now. Ashes, there is beauty coming. There is hope in the valley.  A life can flow again.  Rainbow person.  Fine dining. 


PRAYER:  Thank You Lord for Your amazing Words of promise and pouring water upon our dry hope.  We are confident that beauty is coming from our ashes and we will be surrounded by Your rainbow of hope and glory all the days of our lives.
