11/26/08 THE MIRACLE OF the dead stick
HEARD: It was a good teaching. They are not
even near Me. This was a sign.
HEARD: Dead stick. Can a dead stick
PIX: I saw 3 cherries with their stems.
HEARD: How to stay stable in a crooked
world. Instinct. Even so. Abide.
WORD TO PONDER: THE MIRACLE OF THE DEAD STICK
When you are going through death to self, do not listen
to the rebellious who defy My Word and My anointed
leaders. What appears unfruitful in your life will come
to full bloom merely by laying it before Me in My
Presence. Learn to wait upon Me. Learn to abide. As
you prostrate your life before Me, I will bring you the
stability you need in the midst of a crooked and
rebellious world. Give all of your dead places to Me
and as you wait for life, I will bring forth buds,
blossoms and fruit in rapid acceleration.

next day, he found that Aaron's staff, representing the
tribe of Levi, had sprouted, blossomed, and produced
almonds! 9 When Moses brought all the staffs out from
the LORD's presence, he showed them to the people. Each
man claimed his own staff. 10 And the LORD said to
Moses: "Place Aaron's staff permanently before the Ark
of the Covenant as a warning to rebels. This should put
an end to their complaints against me and prevent any
further deaths." 11 So Moses did as the LORD commanded
him. 12 Then the people of Israel said to Moses, "We
are as good as dead! We are ruined! 13 Everyone who even
comes close to the Tabernacle of the LORD dies. We are
