How's the Wine
you planted the seeds
ensured their soil...fertile
richly mixed within–
the best nutrients
–you watched day and night
plucked every weed
–babied every seed
your fields were blessed
for you cared for their crest–
sun came when needed
rain came when needed
all your vines began to grow
–'til the grapes began to show
you marveled at their birth
giving thanks and praise
but you missed...a thing or two:
your eyes started to go blind
you started dreaming prosperity
–as more grapes appeared
your eyes grew big:
you can buy more land
you can build a bigger house
–money spent...not yet earned
not yet understanding–
you became so careless
you didn't even see–
as your presses grew
as your cellars filled
as your variety increased
–you forgot about the nutrients
you forgot what was needed
–what each vine required
–you even forgot
about the weeds
–how they root and feed
you forgot to tend‒
below the surface
–all you saw...shiny vines
but in the dark‒
weeds and pest
began to ingest
a slow building nest
–leaving you to guess
but you didn't
years have passed‒
since that first glass
‒so many things
you don't even access–
what's 'a mess
you just keep moving‒
never even asking–
how many vines...lost
to the infest
you just keep spending
you just keep enjoying
your well-brewed wine
a simple toast to your lost
and to you–
nothing else adds to the cost
you've become the boss
whatever...you have rights
so, my friend....
how's the wine?
Note: The photo that accompanies this work was taken November 11, 2019 when God sent the message of the Avenging Angel. He went beyond what He has been doing up until this date. He not only used the green orb to point out what He wanted us to see, He also put an arrow in the sky that day to ensure we got the message. Not many paid attention. This will come at a price.
(January 15, 2020)―I have been writing and not completing. I have quite a few pieces to work on. But there’s a few things God is wanting of me. Being number 1 since I began meditation back in July: Stop smoking. I’m on day 5. So it’s been interesting, but I’m about to move to the next part of my journey, so zero nicotine is part of that. I always knew this. Back in 2016, I was told this as well. So, wherever I’m going, I’m willing!
Today, ‘How’s the Wine’ came after reading Isaiah 59:16-20 through 63:11-14, but I was only to write about 59:16-20 through 60:1-14. After I wrote about it, researching all the terms I was told to research, very interesting indeed. I will let you read it and see for yourself. God is surely so freaking amazing!
[I will include the researched words and their meanings]
Zion: highest point; protect to defend; fortress; monument; raised up; sepulcher; a fortified house on a hilltop; the hill of Jerusalem on which the city of David was built; (in Christian thought) the heavenly city or kingdom of heaven; (among Rastafarians) Africa. Jerusalem and Zion being symbolic, and literal, of God’s future rule on earth.
Daughter of Zion: generally refers to Jerusalem or the Jewish people
Salvation for Penitents—He saw that there was no one, He was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so His own arm worked salvation for Him, and His own righteousness sustained Him. He put on righteousness as His breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped Himself in zeal as in a cloak. According to what they have done, so will He repay wrath to His enemies and retribution to His foes; He will repay the islands their due. From the west, men will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere His glory. For He will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along. ‘The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,’ declares the Lord.―Isaiah 59:16-20
NOTES: I wrote in red, back in 2007, after the first line: About Jesus. It is from the group of Isaiah’s prophesies under the title in my Bible: Isaiah’s Prophecies About Restoration and the Messiah. What I’m to show you is what is being pointed out to me for US…all of us.
He saw that there was no one, He was appalled that there was no one to intervene…This is why He tests us so much…to see who will come to help. I argue all the time when it involves the things God has me write, not just the explanations, but also the ways in which He has me write at times, as in the fuck-you church: No one will come. He assures me that they will. I must be patient. So far…no one. He already knows this, but still assures me that they will come. I trust Him…He knows more than me.
…He put on the garments of vengeance…His warrior side as in the Avenging Angel He sent on November 11, 2019. I asked if there’s more. I’m told: Yes. I mean as in visions and photographs. Right now He’s sent enough and no one has paid attention, so after the warnings, they’ll be more news, or rather more words from Him (in addition to the writings I post before that time). For now, He’s sending His message to others in visions, dreams, and writings. It is up to them to acknowledge them as truth and inform the world. I, as His Scribe, am doing my part.
From the west, men will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere His glory. For He will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along…This hasn’t happened yet. At all! See the Visions. He clearly reveals Himself doing this…literally!
Promise of the Spirit—‘As for Me, this is My covenant with them,’ says the Lord. ‘My Spirit, who is on you, and My words that I have put in your mouth will not depart from your mouth, or from the mouths of your children, or from the mouths of their descendants from this time on and forever,’ says the Lord.―Isaiah 59:21
NOTES: …My words that I have put in your mouth…and He can do this. He DOES this. You just don’t realize it. You don’t realize that He’s in control and can change your path whenever He deems it’s necessary! You should fear the Lord.
The Glory of Zion—‘Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm. Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come. Herds of camels will cover your land, your camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian [strife or place of judgment] and Ephah [darkness, gloom; flying]. And all from Sheba [daughter of an oath; promise] will come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord. All Kedar’s [a field; dark-skinned; powerful; strong; potter] flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth [ words; prophecies; buds] will serve you; they will be accepted as offerings on My altar, and I will adorn My glorious temple. Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests? Surely the islands look to Me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish [the sea coast; contemplation (the action of looking thoughtfully at something for a long time, meditation); examination], bringing your sons from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for He has endowed you with splendor. Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion. Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may bring you the wealth of the nations―their kings led in triumphal procession. For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined. The glory of Lebanon [ white; white mountain] will come to you, the pine, the fir and the cypress together, to adorn the place of My sanctuary; and I will glory the place of My feet. The sons of your oppressors will come bowing before you; and will call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel.―Isaiah 60:1-14
NOTES: The beginning of this, the pictures…the images in the pictures under God’s Mercy. You have to realize that He is doing this for YOU! Read the beginning of this passage, then go look at the images under the lake group of images. You will be amazed!
Take careful notice of the word will. Will means it is to come. (It hadn’t happened yet. You do this and this will happen.) So pay close attention to what HAS NOT happened yet!
See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples…It still is (meaning the darkness is still present) because He then says…Nations will come to your light…The key word is will. It hasn’t happened yet.
All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm…Who’s all and on what arm are they carried? He’s talking about Jesus. The world’s people aren’t all going to go to a certain geographical place! They are going to gather in Jesus’ name wherever they live. That is what He is saying. And not necessarily all in a church or in a crowd. No, meaning: within their hearts, they all become the vine (assemble) helping one another without question!
Herds of camels will cover your land, your camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian [strife or place of judgment] and Ephah [darkness, gloom; flying]….He uses the word camel three times in a row, then changes the word to other words, but meaning the same thing. This definition of the word camel is interesting: an apparatus for raising a sunken ship, consisting of one or more watertight chests to provide buoyancy. Do you see it yet?
…your camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian [strife or place of judgment] and Ephah [darkness, gloom; flying]…Do you see it yet? God is a genius. This you really need to understand. He uses words to tell you truth. Here, He is basically saying that those lost in strife…the darkness…will rise and the apparatus (camel) used for this: Jesus! Those who rise under Jesus’ name will become the vine (again the camels) and Jesus is the head! We become PART of the vine…the camel…we all become!
And all from Sheba [daughter of an oath; promise] will come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord…What is the oath or promise? Notice the word will again. The Covenants…the New Covenant to be more specific. The definitions of gold and incense as below…means the same throughout the Bible. Gold: people of color, the heart, His tribes (this explained further down). Incense: Jesus. Love.
Gold: (Noun) a yellow precious metal, the chemical element of atomic number 79, used especially in jewelry and decoration and to guarantee the value of currencies; a deep lustrous yellow or yellow-brown color; coins or other articles made of gold (Adjective) made of or colored like gold.
Incense: (Noun) a gum, spice, or other substance that is burned for the sweet smell it produces (Verb) perfume with incense or a similar fragrance.
All Kedar’s [a field; dark-skinned; powerful; strong; potter] flocks will be gathered to you…All God’s tribes, which I’ve already discussed in other writings who these people are…hint: they are not white! You have to be wondering by now who is the YOU He’s talking to or about…I will discuss later.
…the rams of Nebaioth [ words; prophecies; buds] will serve you; they will be accepted as offerings on My altar…Again…will…it’s coming. As for the word Ram…notice the definition [Ram: (Noun) an uncastrated male sheep; the falling weight of a pile-driving machine; a hydraulic water-raising or lifting machine. (Verb) roughly force (something) into place; be very crowded.]…do you see it yet? Or are you so lost that I have to hold your hand?
…they will be accepted as offerings on My altar, and I will adorn My glorious temple…will again…think!
Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests?…Which bird flies the highest and builds their nest high? The eagle!
Surely the islands look to Me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish [the sea coast; contemplation (the action of looking thoughtfully at something for a long time, meditation); examination], bringing your sons from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for He has endowed you with splendor…Why talk about islands and ships and gold and silver? You really need to think. God says He doesn’t like greed. He always talks about the nations, the world, the earth. When He singles out islands…you need to think about what an island is. [Island: (Noun) a piece of land surrounded by water; a thing resembling an island, especially in being isolated, detached, or surrounded in some way; in anatomy—a detached portion of tissue or group of cells (Verb) literary—make into or like an island; place or enclose on or as on an island; isolate.] As well as what a ship is [Ship: (Noun) a vessel larger than a boat for transporting people or goods by sea (Verb) transport (goods or people) on a ship.] I already gave you the definition of gold. How about silver [Silver: (Noun) a precious shiny grayish-white metal, the chemical element of atomic number 47; a shiny gray-white color or appearance like that of silver; silver dishes, containers, or cutlery; coins made from silver or from a metal that resembles silver (Adjective) made of or colored like silver (Verb) coat or plate with silver.]
Do you see it yet? Let me try to guide you in the right direction:
Islands—Those who accept Jesus as their Savior. They are isolated, detached from society. As Jesus said, He came to divide not to bring peace. The division is between those who believe in Him and those who do not: the Islands
Ships—that’s the word of God…through Jesus. You can’t find Him without resting (meditation). This is how you find the Holy Spirit…the avenue to the kingdom. You need to do what I’m doing…examining every single word God has had written down. They ALL mean something.
Gold and silver—It’s not material things! You should know that by now. God doesn’t need material things. He owns everything! His use of gold refers to several things: the heart being the number one thing, and those of golden color (before the tribes were all mixed with everyone else…now the heart is the most important). You figure it out. Silver also refers to several things: the elderly (wisdom), and those in death (sin). Think about the color of a dead body. Okay, He’s not talking about dead bodies here. He’s talking in symbolization…dead body=death=those lost in sin=those lost in their darkness. He’s saying everyone is invited to the cross!
Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion…When Jesus rose from the dead, all became Israel, meaning: He denounced the chosen because of their denial of His Son. Because they decided to have conditions on their love for God, God decided to not single out a chosen people. Today, they still try to say this. I recently read an article on a terrorist saying ‘their god struck down our missile’. God says: No, that didn’t happen. The world of deception will get worse. The only way to fight it will be through God and Jesus.
Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may bring you the wealth of the nations―their kings led in triumphal procession…He’s talking about Zion, but not the symbol of Zion on Earth. He’s talking about the kingdom…His house! The wealth is LOVE! That which is holy in the eyes of God! I should go further here because the next line after this, as well as the ones that follow, talk about the second part of Zion: Earth itself. This is His lady, that which is very precious to Him.
For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined…By saying will not serve you…He means taking care of her…you…Earth! Those who do not care for Earth will perish. His definition of perish…utterly ruined is the pit, is the non-inheritance of the new Earth.
The glory of Lebanon [ white; white mountain] will come to you, the pine, the fir and the cypress together…Eventually all will be saved…all those kids of Edom, every Jew, all. As always with my Lord, He does everything symbolically. Understanding what He truly means is the way we come to understand His process. He led me to the following definitions of the three trees mentioned here. These particular trees are mentioned quite a number of times in His book…He thinks you should know the true meaning behind them.
Pine: ‘to torture or cause to experience pain,’ which seems quite fitting if you’ve known what it’s like to pine for something or someone. The verb pine should not be confused with the noun pine, as in the evergreen tree. So, pine is referring to those who are sinners with the malicious intent on their hearts.
Fir: never loses their leaves; typically arranged in 2 rows; symbol of honesty, truth and forthrightness because of the way they grow: straight and narrow. So, fir refers to those who are good.
Cypress: symbol of mourning; Cypress is the symbol of immortality as an emblem of eternal life after death and in fact is often found near cemeteries. Due to its absolute verticality, its upward movement, it signifies the soul that moves towards the celestial kingdom; As a potent reminder of life and death, the cypress tree stands between the worlds, literally and figuratively pointing toward immortality and hope as a powerful response to human mourning. So, Cypress refers to those still lost in the 5 stages of grief. They are not healed. They are in between the pine (evil) and the fir (good).
…to adorn the place of My sanctuary…Do you ever truly wonder about what His sanctuary actually is? Well, you need to know what the word means: [Sanctuary: (Noun) a place of refuge or safety; a nature reserve; a holy place; a temple or church; the inmost recess or holiest part of a temple or church; the part of the chancel of a church containing the high altar]. First, what was meant by church? If you don’t know this, you are ALL mixed up! When Jesus told Peter, ‘Upon this rock, build my church,’ He didn’t mean a building! This…people got all confused on! The ROCK is the human body! The sanctuary of that Human Body is the HEART! God’s HOLY place is LOVE…it is NOT an actual place that you can SEE! Hence, Faith. Do you get it now? It is really that simple.
…and I will glory the place of My feet…What did God always say was His foot stool? Earth people! That is always what He said was the place to rest His feet! He hasn’t changed.
The sons of your oppressors will come bowing before you; and will call you the City of the Lord…Who is YOU? EARTH! Then He says…Zion of the Holy One of Israel…Interesting phrase isn’t it? Zion…of…the Holy One…of…Israel. Who is always the Holy One? God! Zion: the kingdom in heaven and Earth are both created by GOD! God also created ALL people! Everything is OF God!
