Law Of The Trees

Law Of The Trees…

Leviticus offers some insight of things to come. Grandfather used to tell me to follow it closely and to remember not to eat the fruit of the trees in the first three years. However, it appears there is another lesson within these chapters.
When you enter the land and plant any kind of fruit tree, regard its fruit as forbidden. For three years you are to consider it forbidden; it must not be eaten. Leviticus 19:23,

Here Israel is given what could be called “The Law of Trees”. The Scripture, in a fascinating use of words in the original Hebrew, tells the Israelites to consider the fruit of the tree “uncircumcised and untouched” for three years. But in the fourth year, the fruit shall be “Kodesh,” holy to the Lord.

Israel is spoken of again and again as a tree. Could the ancient law of trees reveal a prophetic mystery concerning Israel? The fruits of the trees are considered “unripe” or “uncircumcised” for 3 years, but in the fourth year they’re considered holy, the first fruits.

In the fifth year, all its fruits are partaken of. In the same way, Israel and the Jewish people, have existed for about four thousand years. Now as we end the fourth millennium of Jewish existence, more and more Jewish people are turning to their Messiah to praise Him, the first fruits of a holy harvest.

Could it be that the “fifth” millennium of Jewish existence will be the millennium when all its fruits will be holy and all of Israel will be saved?
Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. Ezekiel 37:12

Lift up the nation of Israel and pray for her salvation.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
