The Message of the Mulberry Trees

by Jo Ann Glasco

There is a message for the body of Christ -
The Lord wants His people to listen to His voice -

As the battle rages, He begins to pour out this cup of wrath ;
the enemy divides and conquers Christians
destroying testimonies and personal witness
as they walk life's narrow path. .

The King wants our attention as He plans the wedding feast .
He is inviting all in the kingdom
from the greatest to the very least.

As the invitations come, many receive them with dismay
for they greatly interfere with the plans
they have made for this important day .

Some are doing the same works for Him that they've always done -
Now, He is saying, lay them down and prepare to come to the wedding
that He is now preparing for His only Son .

Business, cares, and woes
ensnare the lives that God so carefully selected and chose .

Worldly contamination has dulled the seeing and hearing -
Most would say that they are believing and God-fearing,

Not knowing that they have been ensnared in satan's trap -
they were blinded and did not see or hear
Once their feet were placed squarely into it, the door shut with a snap !

My children, it is time for the harvest -
I am calling you to come unto Me

There are special instructions for My body
They will be carried out and effect man for all eternity .

Since My people are not prepared to come,
I would send you, my servants, out to the wayside
to people that life and truth have been denied -

Take My message to the unsuspecting places
and know that I desire to bring freedom to all races .

Listen to My voice and know that My spirit is moving a new way .
Shake yourselves ! -- Prepare and get ready
to bring in the harvest this last day .

I have already defeated the enemy and won the war
You will be able to bring in lost souls by the score .

Remember King David, God's man used for our example
from ancient Biblical times -
He inquired of the Lord before crossing enemy lines ;
The battle was supernaturally fought
and the victory was divine .

King David listened to the instructions
leaning not to his own understanding ,
for in doing so he would experience his own self-destruction

"Hearing the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees
Before attacking the Philistine enemy ."

The Lord's own word, instead of following the traditions of man .
Leads us into promised victory

As He takes us by the hand to possess the land .
Follow Me and listen to My command .
This will assure you victory as you travel across the land .

Gather up the blind and lost
Those impoverished by sickness and disease;
Winning souls and eternal life is the servant's reward
as he lays down his life and counts the cost .

The sound of the blowing wind
is being heard by the called-out army once again ;

Following Jesus , the Lord of Hosts
Believing, with signs following, being filled with the Holy Ghost .

"23. When David inquired of the Lord, He said, You shall not go up; but go around behind them, and come upon them over opposite the mulberry ( or balsam ) trees .

"24. And when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then bestir yourself ; for then has the Lord gone out before you, to smite the army of the Philistines ." 2 Sam . 5:23, 24

"14. And David inquired again of God : and God said to him . Do not go up after them ; turn away from them, and come (around) upon them over opposite the mulberry trees .

"15. And when you hear a sound of marchi ng in the tops of the mulberry or balsam trees, then go out to battle ; for God has gone out before you smite the Philistine host ." 1 Chron . 14:14. 15

"But take heed to yourselves and be on your guard lest your hearts be overburdened and depressed-- weighed down--with the giddiness and headache and nausea of self-indulgence, drunkenness, and worldly worries and cares pertaining to (the business of) this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap or a noose ." Luke 21:34
