Description

Scripture has been scrutinized from its very conception. Campfires under the stars on lonely hillsides provided opportunity for storytellers to perfect their craft. They would recount various tales about their heroes, famous battles and victories that Yahweh had given to them. Seen or unseen within the text of God's holy words are silent witnesses to these events. The stories that could be told from these trees perspective! The garden was filled with trees that witnessed Adam naming the animals that were presented to him. The Tree of Knowledge witnessed the first deceit that eventually led to humanity's fall from God's perfect will. The burning bush provided the platform for Yahweh to commission Moses to free his people. One famous tree had holes pounded into it by three rough nails that held the one who would forgive all sins and provide a way to Yahweh for all, a reconciliation for those who would believe and call on his name. There are over twenty-five trees that have been included in the various stories across the Old and New Testament. From a researcher's point of view their inclusion must have some significance. Therefore, their inclusion should be studied to learn additional insights about our relationship with the Trinity and with our fellow travelers on this blue planet hung in space. These pages made from trees will carry the words that will help us to better understand our call, our gifts, the power offered, and our salvation. From their silent witness, eight trees will guide our thoughts to a deeper understanding of ourselves, our mission, and our relationship with the Trinity. The calling of Israel's second king descended on the shoulders of a very young shepherd boy who was left out in the fields to watch sheep while the prophet of the Lord came to town to pray and feast. Samuel had to persuade Jesse to even think about presenting his youngest son, David, an opportunity to be selected. Yet, in spite of human design God's will became known. David's ancestor Joseph, before he had been chosen to be second in command after Pharaoh also had been overlooked by his brothers. Yet, in spite of human design God's will became known. Joseph's ancestor Moses also had a call on his life and like David and Joseph his calling wasn't made known until he had experienced life and was ready for an encounter with the living God who is above all god's. Within the scope of God's will being revealed to humanity is that life is not to be second-rate, but is to be lived to its fullest. God's design is to incorporate the gifts given by grace to each individual, so that they can find fullness and satisfaction through their offerings of grace given to others on behalf of the Trinity. Simply put, we are all given a uniqueness to be used like a vessel that holds water, ready and willing to be poured in ministry to one in need. We are given a purpose or a calling. Like Moses we may have to encounter a burning bush to be fully engaged in God's will and desire instead of the world's desire to simply get by.show more
