White anemones cover the ground
Tithing and legalism

Prophetic flowers

If you have not read my previous post on the white anemones that cover the ground at our place in the forest I suggest that you read that entry before you proceed to read about prophetic flowers.

God is a speaking God. His words are continually going out of his mouth. His words created the entire universe and uphold it to this very day. As the universe was spoken into being by the word of God, the entire nature itself constantly reflect the Word be which it came into being. We do not live by bread alone but by the words that continually proceeds from God.

The white anemones that cover the ground of my forest are prophetic flowers. The birds that sing so beautifully are prophetic in their praise of their Creator. The budding leaves of the trees are a clear prophetic utterance. The rain that is falling and the swelling rivers are prophetic in their proclamation of the refreshing power of the Holy Spirit.

The word of God says:

The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.
     Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
     They speak without a sound or word;
There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
     Yet their message has gone throughout the earth,
and their words to all the world.  (Ps 19:1-4 NLT)

The heavens with the stars, the sun and the moon is continually proclaiming the glory of God, and the entire world under the sky does the same. It is a well accepted understanding among Christians that the entire universe in its vastness, splendour, order and mystery is the most impressive reflection of the greatness and majesty of God. All Christians agree that the nature speaks about God, the Creator. But I believe there is more to it than this. I believe God is actually speaking directly to us through everything he has created if we only have anointed ears to hear with.

The white anemones on the ground of the forest are prophetic. He who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the new covenant community!
