JOSEPH THE DREAMER/PROPHET, JESUS AND BRETHREN, ADVENTIST AND PROTESTANTS—SPIRIT OF PROHECY—CHURCHES BURN THE BOUGH!
JOSEPH is a fruitful BOUGH, even a fruitful BOUGH BY a well; whose branches RUN OVER The Wall:
When the BOUGHS thereof are WITHERED, they shall be broken off: THE WOMEN COME, and SET THEM on FIRE: for it is a people of no understanding: therefore he that made them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will shew them no favour.
WHY DID THE BOUGH WITHER? PAPACY IS BACK!
For a NATION IS COME up upon my land, STRONG, and without number, whose TEETH are the TEETH OF a 女 LION, and he hath the cheek TEETH of a GREAT 女 LION. He hath laid MY Vine WASTE, and barked MY FIG TREE: he hath MADE it CLEAN BARE, and CAST IT AWAY; THE BRANCHES thereof are MADE WHITE.
“I am the true Vine, and My Father is the husbandman.” On the hills of Palestine our heavenly Father had planted this goodly Vine, and He Himself was the husbandman. Many were attracted by the beauty of this Vine, and declared its heavenly origin. But to the leaders in Israel it appeared as a root out of a dry ground. They took the plant, and bruised it, and trampled it under their unholy feet. Their thought was to destroy it forever. But the heavenly Husbandman never lost sight of His plant. After men thought they had killed it, He took it, and replanted it on the other side of the wall. The vine stock was to be no longer visible. It was hidden from the rude assaults of men. But the branches of the Vine hung over the wall. They were to represent the Vine. Through them grafts might still be united to the Vine. From them fruit has been obtained. There has been a harvest which the passers-by have plucked.
“I am the Vine, ye are the branches,” Christ said to His disciples. Though He was about to be removed from them, their spiritual union with Him was to be unchanged. The connection of the branch with the vine, He said, represents the relation you are to sustain to Me. DA 675.1 – DA 675.3
