The Axe Is Already at the Root (Lk 3:9)

During the past week something seemingly insignificant occurred in front of the Supreme Court. Most will make nothing of it. But could it be a picture of something else that’s coming soon?

The picture to the left shows two large trees that are directly in front of the Court (from overhead it looks like only one). The one on the north side was cut down because they discovered that the roots had died. They attribute the death to the recent replacement of the sidewalk where we’ve been standing to pray daily since Oct ’04 (shown by the red line).

The roots directly beneath our feet died and now a tree that once stood tall has suddenly been removed. Could God be doing the same thing with a Supreme Court Judge (see “Random Thoughts”)? Time will tell.

Ezekiel 17:24
All the trees of the field will know that I the LORD bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. “I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.”

Daniel 4:22 - You, O king, are that tree! You have become great and strong; your greatness has grown until it reaches the sky, and your dominion extends to distant parts of the earth.
23 "You, O king, saw a messenger, a holy one, coming down from heaven and saying, 'Cut down the tree and destroy it, but leave the stump, bound with iron and bronze, in the grass of the field, while its roots remain in the ground. Let him be drenched with the dew of heaven; let him live like the wild animals, until seven times pass by for him.'

24 "This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree the Most High has issued against my lord the king: 25 You will be driven away from people and will live with the wild animals; you will eat grass like cattle and be drenched with the dew of heaven. Seven times will pass by for you until you acknowledge that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes. 26
