ORCHARD - One Nut at a Time
SANDY RHEMA 8/01/05
Today I went on a prayer walk and I had the earphones on
and was listening to awesome worship music. I was
flooded with His Presence.
HEARD: I will keep you.
QUICKENED GLANCE: I looked down and there was a small
empty peanut shell. It was placed on a rock. I thought
of the many Words the Lord has given me about peanuts,
His small nuggets of rhema Words that are so tasty.
QUICKENED: As I came to the end of the road, there is a
little squirrel and he was gathering nuts. That is what
I have been doing with the journals for 21 years. He is
only one squirrel and he has an entire orchard!! This
made me break out and laugh out loud!
QUICKENED EYE GLANCE: When I passed a cute yard, there
was a little tiny red wagon, the size of the teddy bears
I have at home.
HEARD: Peanuts and wagons, get them on the internet.
QUICKENED SIGN: Be responsible, be respectful, be safe.
CONFIRMATION UPDATE: As I am listening to my voice
recorder about this same sign, my eye lands on a very
large wooden wagon in the yard.
INTERP: I am being responsible with the Words that He
gives me, whether they are little wagon loads or big
GET YOUR HOMEWORK DONE 4/15/95
There will come a day when you get all your homework
completed and it will all be lined up in order with all
the pieces put together. You may think that you will
still be serving peanuts, but in that day there shall be
a great opening for doors of ministry. That day will be
a time of My harvesting everything in your life, and the
promises I have spoken will come to pass quickly. My
time clock shall move ahead and things in your life will
no longer be put on hold.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that
needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of
truth.” (2 Tim 2:15 KJV)
MY GOVERNMENT, MY NEWS 12/1/96
I assure, you, I have placed My government upon your
shoulders. You think all you have to offer is just
peanuts, but My calling upon your life is to release My
news from heaven and you are more than capable of the
task. I have sent My angel to help you and I will never
leave you. I will lead and guide you in all that you
think and say.
“Of the increase of his government and peace there shall
be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his
kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment
and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal
of the LORD of hosts will perform this" (Isa 9:7 KJV)
TIDBIT JERKY OUTSIDE THE BOX 3/5/03
Sometimes, I speak in unusual ways. These are outside of
your boxes and boundaries of how you think I should
speak. I always did prefer abiding in a tent over a
building! Buildings are like boxes and so inflexible.
Tents sway to and fro as My wind blows where it will.
As I fill your tent with My Presence, I will send My
angels to serve you popcorn, peanuts and jerky. I have
drawn you to be hungry for salt, and ready to receive
tidbits to chew. Yes, small morsels one at a time, but
bursting with flavor as your appetite increases for Me.
You shall chew and meditate upon My morsels from heaven
and these shall be like little lessons along the way. In
the process I will stretch your boundaries of Who you
think I AM.
"Go and tell my servant David, `This is what the LORD
says: You are not the one to build me a temple to live
in. I have never lived in a temple, from the day I
brought the Israelites out of Egypt until now. My home
has always been a tent, moving from one place to
another. And I never once complained to Israel's
leaders, the shepherds of my people. I have never asked
them, "Why haven't you built me a beautiful cedar
temple?" (1 Chron 17:4-6 NLT)
RHEMA 9/14/97: STORING HIS WORDS
OPENED EARS: Again my literal ears were opened and I
heard canning jars being moved around on the shelf.
HEARD: Now when did this happen? Full of nuts. They
refer to it after many years. Confirm authenticity.
HEARD: [upon waking] Do not be afraid.
RHEMA 4/3/98: MEMORIAL OF FAITH PLANTED
PIX: I saw the concrete squirrel in our backyard flower
bed. I picked it up, sat down and used it as a writing
COMMENT: This cross references to the squirrel I saw
last Nov. But the fact that this is concrete means
something like planting a memorial stone in our yard.
The Israelites used rocks when they wanted to remember
something important in their history with the Lord.
Josh 4:1-7 NKJV
And it came to pass, when all the people had completely
crossed over the Jordan, that the LORD spoke to Joshua,
saying: 2 "Take for yourselves twelve men from the
people, one man from every tribe, 3 and command them,
saying, 'Take for yourselves twelve stones from here,
out of the midst of the Jordan, from the place where the
priests' feet stood firm. You shall carry them over with
you and leave them in the lodging place where you lodge
... that this may be a sign among you when your children
ask in time to come, saying, 'What do these stones mean
to you?' 7 Then you shall answer them that the waters of
the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant
of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters
of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be
for a memorial to the children of Israel forever."
SQUIRREL RHEMA 11/8/97:
VISION: I was looking inside a transparent glass room
looking at a squirrel. It was sitting there with its
little belly poking out full of nuts, and vigorously
rubbing cologne all over its body. It was very cute and
very funny to watch. The squirrel was doing this cologne
bath with very fast movements. The squirrel was doing
this so that the children would pick him up.
Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like
pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense,
with all powders of the merchant? (Song of Solomon 3:6)
QUICKENED GLANCE: My eyes landed on a squirrel.
Just as I am pondering the squirrel I realize they store
food for the winter, so that they do not suffer famine.
Amos 8:11 NKJV
"Behold, the days are coming," says the Lord GOD, "That
I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water, But of hearing the words of the
RHEMA 6/20/00 QUICKENED PARABLE: I am sitting in the
dentists' office waiting for an opening, as I have
broken my tooth. The doctor they chose for me was Dr.
English. (no kidding!)
I had a blood sugar crash and was thinking about having
protein bar. So I am sitting in the waiting room this
morning and a lady 2 seats away was skimming through a
magazine. My eyes suddenly dart to the page she was
on... there is a squirrel at the top, wringing his hands
and looking kind of befuddadled.... below is a yummie
looking cookie with no nuts. The squirrel says, "No
NUTS???" THEN I looked at the name of the cookie. They
were called "Sandies." I laughed and laughed and
APPLICATION: Life gets pretty low without a daily
portion of rhema Word from the Lord. His Word keeps our
spiritual blood sugar stable. He gives us nuts to store,
and nuts for our cheeks to ponder and nuts for our
tummies to digest. He encompasses us with nuts so that
we never run out!
QUICKENED SONG: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I
don't. Almond Joys got nuts, Mounds don't!
(Sometimes we feel like our calling and sometimes we
don't. If we live in His Presence, we got nuts, if we
don't, we get piled up in misery.)
Num 17:8 NKJV
Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses went into
the tabernacle of witness, and behold, the rod of Aaron,
of the house of Levi, had sprouted and put forth buds,
had produced blossoms and yielded ripe almonds
HANDFULS OF PURPOSE 6/15/09
HEARD: You are a sentimental person. You want the little
piece that fits. Treasures. Dropped as handfuls of
purpose. Just for you.
Ruth 2:16 KJV
And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for
her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke
WORD TO PONDER: HANDFULS OF PURPOSE JUST FOR YOU 6/15/09
I love how you love My Word and My provision! I see you
treasuring each morsel, making sure nothing is lost.
Beloved, you stir my heart so deeply for your passion
and joy over even the smallest details of what I
provide. You have earnestly sought Me and not given up.
You have given honor to Me as your Provider.
I love you so much that I will move heaven and earth to
send you angels from all over the world, to walk before
you, dropping even the smallest details on purpose, just
for you. You are My dear, dear one and you will always
be given more than enough. I rejoice when you rejoice
and I AM satisfied when you are satisfied.
Ruth 2:14-16 NLT
At lunchtime Boaz called to her, "Come over here and
help yourself to some of our food. You can dip your
bread in the wine if you like." So she sat with his
harvesters, and Boaz gave her food - more than she could
eat. 15 When Ruth went back to work again, Boaz ordered
his young men, "Let her gather grain right among the
sheaves without stopping her. 16 And pull out some heads
of barley from the bundles and drop them on purpose for
her. Let her pick them up, and don't give her a hard
