The tree and the barking dogs vision
"The Tree and The Barking Dogs Vision 09-18-12"
I had a vision of a small plant that was beginning to emerge from the ground. It sprouted in the sunshine and grew upwards and began to form it's leaves. I then saw a small dog like a Chihuahua come up to the plant and it began to bark at the plant. It could not get near the plant, but it barked incessantly as the plant grew upwards. After awhile, another dog came, and this dog was bigger, and joined the little dog and it joined in at barking at the plant. The plant kept growing in the sunshine. Soon, another dog came, even bigger than the other two dogs and the three of them barked incessantly at the plant trying to get it to stop growing, but they could not touch the plant. As I continued to watch more dogs came, each one bigger than the last one, till the plant was completely surrounded by barking dogs. The plant grew and produced more leaves and then it formed it's bark, and then I understood that this plant was a young tree. It grew more and branched out and it's branches grew and produced leaves. The dogs were barking and growling and trying to get the tree, but they could not do anything but bark. Then I saw the tree begin to grow fruit on it's branches. The fruit grew big, and the fruit matured and grew heavy on it's branches. Suddenly a great wind came and blew on the tree, and the fruit on the branches fell down and hit all the barking dogs and killed them all.
Scriptures the vision is seen within:
Psalms 1:1 BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather. 2 But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night. 3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity]. 4 Not so the wicked [those disobedient and living without God are not so]. But they are like the chaff [worthless, dead, without substance] which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the wicked [those disobedient and living without God] shall not stand [justified] in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous [those who are upright and in right standing with God]. 6 For the Lord knows and is fully acquainted with the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly [those living outside God's will] shall perish (end in ruin and come to nought).
Jeremiah 17:7 [Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. 8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit.
Other study scriptures:
Psalms 22:16 For [like a pack of] dogs they have encompassed me; a company of evildoers has encircled me, they pierced my hands and my feet.
Philippians 3:2 Look out for those dogs [Judaizers, legalists], look out for those mischief-makers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh.
Psalms 59:5 You, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations; spare none and be not merciful to any who treacherously plot evil. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 6 They return at evening, they howl and snarl like dogs, and go [prowling] about the city. 7 Behold, they belch out [insults] with their mouths; swords [of sarcasm, ridicule, slander, and lies] are in their lips, for who, they think, hears us?
Philippians 3:2 Steer clear of the barking dogs, those religious busybodies, all bark and no bite. All they're interested in is appearances—knife-happy circumcisers, I call them. The real believers are the ones the Spirit of God leads to work away at this ministry, filling the air with Christ's praise as we do it. TM
Revelations 22:14 Blessed (happy and to be envied) are those who cleanse their garments, that they may have the authority and right to [approach] the tree of life and to enter through the gates into the city. 15 [But] without are the dogs and those who practice sorceries (magic arts) and impurity [the lewd, adulterers] and the murderers and idolaters and everyone who loves and deals in falsehood (untruth, error, deception, cheating). 16 I, Jesus, have sent My messenger (angel) to you to witness and to give you assurance of these things for the churches (assemblies). I am the Root (the Source) and the Offspring of David, the radiant and brilliant Morning Star.
