My Grandparents were Oaks of Righteousness. They had their roots planted deep into God’s word. The children and grandchildren that followed didn’t always stay true to that. The generations that followed planted their roots in the shifting sands of the desires of the heart.
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
Isaiah 61:3 – KJV
The Jacob Branch of my bloodline was grafted into the Righteous branch.
“If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.”
John 15:6 – KJV
My birth family is similar to the two sticks. One side of my family was like Jacob. They were obedient and faithful to God’s word. The other side of family was like Esau. They did what they wanted to do. They did what was right in their own eyes.
Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
Ezekiel 37:16-17 – KJV
I was adopted into a new family when I was in High School. I was the Wild Branch grafted into the manicured Olive Tree.
For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
Romans 11:24 – KJV
I am so grateful for the foundation that was laid by my birth family and my adopted family.
The paths of righteousness run deep in these two families for which I am grateful.
I was wild branch that was grafted into the cultivated branch. Because of the one true Elohim, Yahuah saw fit to take me and graft to the branch rooted deep in the knowledge of Word Of Yahuah. Click here to learn more.
Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
Luke 13:18-19 – KJV
I am now grafted into Israel. I am part of the chosen people, not because of anything that I did, or anything that my adoptive family did. We are able to be grafted in thanks to the covenant long ago between Abraham and the Father. We are grafted into Abraham’s covenant. Because of the Mystery of Yeshua we have been grafted into that Abrahamic covenant.
