A new fragrance for a new season!

Shabbat Shalom!

Pam planted a new rose called “Maggie” in between Ephraim and Judah today; I’m including a wonderful description of the rose below. Declare that God is anointing you with a new fragrance for the new season!

Excerpt taken from http://johnstarnesloveofroses.blogspot.com/2010/02/mystery-rose-maggie.html?m=1

 

“Look into each ruffled Victorian style blossom and eat up the saturated magenta-red color, far more sophisticated than your usual scentless, red florist’s rose. Then dive in with a hungry nose and tingle your soul with that heady, spicy Old Rose perfume so rarely encountered here in Florida. The blooms average three and a half inches across and occur singly or in clusters that can contain a couple of dozen blooms, making one cut stem an instant bouquet.”

Blessings, and see you all tomorrow night for First Fruits! If you can’t join us onsite, tune in on the web!

The promise of spring…

Happy Monday all!

Wonderful news for all – the almond tree is blooming!

From Pam –

The almond blossom is the first sign of spring in Israel. Here in our garden, the almond is the first of the fruit and nut bearing trees to bloom in the late winter – a promise of spring.

And from yesterday’s service when Pam shared on the almond tree –

“God is saying, ‘I’m giving you another spring.  It’s another chance. Take it, don’t waste it!'”

The verse I want to share with you is from Song of Solomon, and is a beautiful encouraging word for all of us as we have been enduring the winter season and time of deliverance and pruning.

My beloved speaks and says to me:
“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away,
11 for behold, the winter is past;
the rain is over and gone.
12 The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree ripens its figs,
and the vines are in blossom;
they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away.

– Song of Solomon 2:10-13

Be blessed and take heart in the spring that is just around the bend!

Making room for the new..

Happy Tuesday all!

We are still in the middle of the pruning process in the garden, and as you can see from some of the pictures below, the garden is looking pretty bare. This is all in preparation for the new season! We have to make room for Spring, and the new growth and fruit that are on the way. Let God root out the old and make room for the new blessings that are on the way!

Don’t resist the pruning!

Hello all ye delivered!

The process of pruning has begun here at Global Spheres, and I took some pictures to share with you. I am continuously amazed to see the visual representation of what the body goes through displayed through what is going on in the garden! Pruning is deliverance; He must cut away the dead and old so that the new may flourish and bloom! If someone comes to you and tries to hand you something new and beautiful, but your hands are full because you are still dragging around the old, you will miss your prosperity! So don’t resist the pruning — rejoice and thank God for the new things that He has in your future.

“I am the Real Vine and my Father is the Farmer. He cuts off every branch of me that doesn’t bear grapes. And every branch that is grape-bearing he prunes back so it will bear even more. You are already pruned back by the message I have spoken. “Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me. “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. Anyone who separates from me is deadwood, gathered up and thrown on the bonfire. But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon. This is how my Father shows who he is—when you produce grapes, when you mature as my disciples. – John 15:2-8 – The Message Bible

“I’m not going to say anything, but simply look on from where I live, Quiet as warmth that comes from the sun, silent as dew during harvest.” And then, just before harvest, after the blossom has turned into a maturing grape, He’ll step in and prune back the new shoots, ruthlessly hack off all the growing branches. He’ll leave them piled on the ground for birds and animals to feed on — Fodder for the summering birds, fodder for the wintering animals. – Isaiah 18:5 – The Message Bible

Thank God for the harvest!! 

Blessings!

Happy Snow Day All!

It’s a winter wonderland here at Global Spheres Center. I hope all of you who are experiencing this cold weather are managing to stay warm and safe! I popped out to capture a few pictures before my ears and fingers froze off, and wanted to share them with you. Enjoy!

Blessings,
