Before we can begin to understand creation, we must first understand how it was created. In past nourishment I have shared who our Savior was before he came to earth and was known by the name of Jesus. In the beginning, he was The Word, who is also Michael the Archangel. The "Word" was and is Michael the Anointed Christ Jesus. He was Father Yahweh’s first and ONLY direct creation and through whom all things were created. What this means is that while Father is the energy source of all creation, the world was bi-created all things under the direction and guidance of Yahweh and using Her energy as the source of all things.
1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 All things were created through Him,
and apart from Him not one thing was created
that has been created.
Colossians 1:16 "because by Him everything was created, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities— all things have been created through Him and for Him."
Now, moving on to the meaning of the vine. Michael/Christ is the true vine because he was Father's chosen first born. Yahweh in turn, is the vineyard keeper because it is She that keeps the vineyard in working order and because all life stems from the Her as our Creator. Without Father there would have been no vine to grow creation into the reality we all live within.
The use of the word “stems” in regards to life and Father being the tree of life is very appropriate considering a few of its definitions:
- the stalk that supports a leaf, flower, or fruit.
- the stock or line of descent of a family; ancestry or pedigree.
- the main body of that portion of a tree, shrub, or other plant which is above ground; trunk; stalk.
- to arise or originate
All life in creation, the vineyard, stems (originates) from Father Yahweh, who is the energy source that gives all things life.
The Vine and the Branches
1 "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vineyard keeper. 2 Every branch in Me that does not produce fruit He removes, and He prunes every branch that produces fruit so that it will produce more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in Me, and I in you. Just as a branch is unable to produce fruit by itself unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me."
Christ made the point of saying that he is the TRUE vine in the above scripture, because there is yet another vine that exists, which is Satan’s FALSE vine.
There are many who fail to understand why Father permits evil to flourish in Her creation and allow bad things to happen to the children that She loves. The reason is that as the vineyard keeper, Father has permitted Satan's false vine to grow and flourish so that She may prove that sin will not work in Her reality for the benefit of all concerned. The benefit for all of creation is in seeing first hand and learning that Her Way is righteous and that any detour from it does not and will not work.
This is just part of the reasoning in Father’s plans for the upcoming Rapture, and after that, Armageddon. The goal at this point in time, is to do all that we can each day to remain on the vine of truth, so that when the pruning takes place, we will remain in Christ Jesus our Savior and obtain admission into his Kingdom.
