Netser is a "branch."
Yesterday I began to rejoice as I started receiving things about this.
The first thing that came to me was about Ezekiel 17:22. "I shall
take a sprig from the lofty top of the cedar and set it out. I shall pluck
from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one, and I shall plant it
on a high and lofty mountain. On the high mountain of Israel I shall plant
it, that it may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and become a stately
cedar. And birds of every kind will nest under it, they will rest in the
shade of its branches." (Psalm 91:1)
Every work initiated by our Father must begin with the open door of the
human heart. I pray with all my heart that myself and my people may learn
the lesson intended for us from the Corinthians. Our Father sovereignly
preserved these letters for our instruction, that we could be saved from
an arrogant delusion of someday outgrowing our need for the ministry of
the "tender one" who has been used to bring the anointing of
Messiah to us in the first place. What do we know of Messiah except what
we have received? A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to
him from heaven (not on a direct circuit, but by the age-old way of YHWH,
through His anointed ones).
A "branch" is of the same stuff, the same substance, as the
tree itself. I am a branch whose origin is from the good growth that has
issued forth from the "tender one" planted on a high and lofty
mountain of Israel. How lovely are the feet of those who bring us the
good tidings of SALVATION. Upon this mountain, such a one can see up ahead
so that Israel wouldn't be without rudder or direction. Apostolic ministry,
seers and visionaries of the New Covenant- there must be some on the mountain
for Israel's sake.
My origin is of that anointing. I never existed, in Messiah, before this
anointing came to my life. I was "nothing," and now everything
that I am is because I am connected to this good growth. I can now receive
the life giving sap that rises up from the roots to nourish all the branches.
My connection to this lofty cedar tree is my connection to the Source,
my Father. It is through the ministry of reconciliation that this anointing
of Messiah has brought to me, that I am reconciled. Now I draw my life
from the same source as the lofty cedar. My growth is pure as long as
I am connected. But when I, as a branch, am cut off from the life giving
Source, I grow brittle and dry-and am in danger of falling. (John 15)
"If anyone does not abide in me, he is thrown away as a branch and
dries up..." And you know the fate of the branch that grows brittle.
But what I rejoice over is that I am a BRANCH! (The night I repented at
the table 6 weeks ago, I went to my room immediately after and started
reading John 15 about the branches that abide in the vine!) And I know
that the tree I come forth from is GOOD because I can see its luscious
fruit. I see people loving each other, laying down their lives for each
other and being connected to the head- individually- not slavishly coerced
or ruled with a heavy hand. I see people "let go" - let go to
grow up into the Head and as a result of this, blessing others. I even
see others who have never been involved in Chattanooga or have not personally
know you and yet they are brought also into this anointing through the
ministry of those who have received the anointing- the growth is good.
The cedar would bring forth boughs and bear fruit and become a stately
cedar. A stately tree is anchored to the ground through an extensive and
ancient root system. No little gust of wind or exposure (even false and
malicious, slanderous exposure) can topple it. It is anchored.
So it will sway, but not break off. It is resilient because YHWH of Hosts
is its strength. Isa. 49:5 It is a good growth. There is now a proliferation
of other trees. Their growth is not good and their sap does not come from
the same Source as the stately cedar. These trees are having their "season
in the sun" but the spirit and power of Elijah is coming upon the
earth. Mal. 4:1; 3:18
"And all the trees of the field will know that I am Sovereign - I
am YHWH. I bring down the high tree, exalt the low tree, dry up the green
tree, and make the dry flourish. I am YHWH. I have spoken. I will perform
it." Ezek. 17:25 The spirit of Elijah will demonstrate that the El
of the true growth is YHWH. (This El is YAH- Elijah. (Col. 2:19)
Last night you said you wished you could be speaking to thousands of Christians
about the truth of the anointing. What is being formed in all of us is
the way that those thousands of Christians are going to hear this word.
Multiplication not addition-multiplication. A seemingly astronomical sum
can be surprisingly quickly arrived at by multiplication. Israel is going
to teem, because He is saving "the heart," "the pioneers,"
the "trailblazers." What Numbers 24 said is going to be realized.
Numbers 23:24; 24:5-6
How, in nature, could a branch ever turn on the tree proper and despise
it and cut itself off from that tree it grew from? Yet, it is going to
happen, in the days when tribes and clans are spread out with many people
in many places. Perhaps the disease that kills a branch is the malady
that Diotrephes had (3 John 9). But a true BRANCH will maintain its integrity!
It will remain attached, and the sap will never cease to flow, even to
the uttermost extremities-to all the leaves and tender buds (children).
A branch is truly blessed that abides.
I want with all my heart to be a Netser. I am not ashamed of it, or how
it sounds. My Father loves me, He loves me so much that He gives me a
handle, a means of grace to remind me. And the people of YHWH can forget
so quickly. I need this grace. I am honored. He kept me, somehow, even
when I cut myself off from the sap. But now He is restoring the flow to
my dried up condition. There is hope for a tree. And there is hope for
a branch, if it is truly a branch! Job 14:7-9
Called and Chosen (and by HIS GRACE) Faithful,
