For He grew up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
The Lord seemed to reveal to me how there is a definite correlation with Jesus being that “Root that grew out of a dry ground”, and also the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. Also, He showed me a tie-in with His cross, that was erected in a dry and rocky soil at Golgotha. Golgotha was a very dry rocky unfertile area, and it was also termed “the place of the Skull because it’s hillside seemed to resemble a human skull. This is not by coincidence, since skulls represent “Death”., and the only thing truly Good that ever was erected on that soil was Jesus , Himself, on that cross of wood where He hung between two thieves ..erected in such an unhospitable soil.
Jesus, truly IS our Tree of Life.. and it is also not a coincidence that the very cross He hung on was made of wood.. that came from a tree–He ,our Tree of Life Whom like a grain of wheat that falls to the ground, allowed Himself to die so that we could find true life- Eternal Life.
Also, it is not a coincidence that Jesus was a carpenter before He began His 3 year ministry before the Father. For 30 years He served His Father by serving His earthly Father in the most despised town in Isreal.. Nazareth. “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?!”, Nathaniel told Philip. Again we see how Nazareth was also that “dry ground” Where Jesus, as that tender plant grew up.. in the most unlikely of places.
So, He, that Root that grew out of a dry desert land, also gave His life the same way He lived…. a beautiful Tree of Life in a barren land. To eat of the fruit of That Tree (Himself) We will discover Living Waters of Life , in the most dry unlikely places.
I love how our Lord showed Tony about how when Jesus was on the cross., the vertical beam represents Him, through His death, reuiniting us back with our Father in Heaven (one part of the beam is in the earth and the other part extends up towards the Heavens) And how the horizontal part of the cross beam represents our relationship with each other restored through Christ.. It reminds me of Jesus’s high priestly prayer prior to His Passover and crucifixion where He asked the Father that we made be made One in Them as He is One with the Father..
Also, what a beautiful dream Tony had! Yes, our Lord wants an intimate spiritual connection with Him and us.. We will never find true fulfillment and happiness unless through Him, regardless of wether we go through tons of trials or not.
I had a dream just before waking the morning of 09/09/2016 . In the dream I was seated at a small square table and in front of me was a loaf of bread and a glass of wine. Sitting across from me was the Lord Jesus.
I am not going to get into a dispute as to whether the cup contained grape juice or wine as that had no bearing on the dream whatsoever.
The dream, I believe was the Lord’s heart’s desire for intimacy with me and not me alone but with each one of His children.
Communion was never supposed to be a separate event but part of a celebration meal known as the Lord’s supper as described by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians chapter 11. It was a celebration of the finished work of the Lord on the cross.
Paul describes Communion as follows:

Amen to this.. Very sobering yet very TRUE!
I am the Lord, that is My name;
And My glory I will not give to another,
Nor My praise to carved images.
In my prayer time this morning the above verse was dropped into my heart. As I continued to pray in tongues I saw the following vision.
In the vision I could see a church service going on. I saw the platform that a preacher and worship team would stand on as well as the congregation. What I saw next was a cross and the people on the stage strategically placing themselves in front of the cross so that those in the congregation would not see the cross, only them.
Next I saw those same people begin to adorn the cross with colorful scarfs and such to make it less offensive, i.e. tone down its true meaning. Then I saw them begin to dance around the…
