Why Pomegranates and Chains?

Fruits of the spirit juxtaposed with chains that bind. Holy Spirit’s truth versus the lies of the enemy that ensnare and bind. Are you a seeker after God’s truth in 2016? I am but one of the prophetic voices God has raised up for such a time as this.

In reading the Old Testament account of King David’s son, Solomon’s (known for his wisdom from God) building of a temple to house God’s shekinah glory, I was inspired by this truth by the Holy Spirit: that the two massive columns to the north and south of God’s temple in the one physical place on earth that he chooses above all others, Jerusalem, were both decorated with pomegranates and chains.  God’s Word: “Two columns were made for the entrance to the temple…the top of each column was decorated with designs that looked like chains and with 100 carvings of pomegranates.”  2 Chronicles 3:15-16

The columns were even named as names then, and still now, carry anointing and destiny. To the North was placed Boaz (meaning God is Strong) and to the South was Jachin (God makes Secure). – from 2 Chron. 3:17

So what does this have to do with God’s supernatural miracles of healing being manifested in the world today? Only God’s perfect plan of salvation through belief in his only son, Jesus Christ — Emmanuel — “God with us” has the power through the shed blood of Jesus to break every chain of disease, sickness, infirmity, broken hearts, addictions and casting out of evil spirits which bring with them pain, heartache, depression and all the other ills of this imperfect world.

Christ comes to live in our hearts by invitation only and brings the Holy Spirit’s fruitful gifts known as peace, love, hope, faith and salvation.

So — choose today whom you will serve. Exchange your chains for pomegranates — known as a symbol of life in ancient times.  Today can bring change. Rivers of life-giving water can flower out of you to a world being enveloped in spiritual darkness. Start living with the Holy Spirit’s fruits beginning, now, tomorrow and forever.  Know securely where you will spend eternity. There are only two sides: God’s truth spoken from the foundation of the world, and everyone else’s views not founded in truth…full of spiritual deception (which can all be wrapped up and combined under the heading “lies of the enemy of your soul.”)  Evil is not choosy about which belief you choose on the wide way that leads to destruction as long as you miss the narrow path that leads to life eternal.
