We Were Once Trees, but Now We are Stumps

We were once trees, but now we are stumps.

From Chapter 11 it reads, “Isa 11:1 And a Rod shall come forth from the stump of Yishai, and a Sprout from his roots shall bear fruit. The Spirit of יהוה shall rest upon Him – the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of יהוה, ”

I don’tknow why we believe that the Messiah came for people looking good and smelling pretty. From the looks and sound of this verse there is indication there that Yahushua was born into a wretched and messy family. Sounds exactly like black folk.

The minute we stop overeating, lose a little weight, or come off the cocaine, or stop whoring around, or get a little degree or make a dollar past two we become puffed, proud and arrogant. Don’t let us know a scripture, because then we go about acting holier than thou. And I asked what happened to the person underneath all the make up and hair whatever became of his or her heart?

Being that we are so caught up in new design, who did this and that we never really start to seek an answer for our problems which brought us to the point of overeating, smoking crack, whoring. Hence, the only thing we did was seek stuff to make us be whole, but are we really, whole?

We were once trees, but now we are stumps. Kinda like we don’t realize we have been cut down, but for that reason since we’ve been cut down Yahuah come to save us. If we have not that connection then we die, but because Yah has a hand on us and allows us to ask forgiveness we can become one with him—again.

My neighbor’s tree will be an illustration of this message. That tree has been torn and falls apart with every wind and rain, however, because of the root that tree stands strong even though there are parts rotted and there are parts cut off…new life forms because they are connected to the source .
