Recently Mitch from Crown Jesus Ministries shared the following prophetic picture and word he had.
‘As I was driving across the border I sensed the LORD giving me the following revelation, I saw an apple tree blossom in a garden. Beyond the fences I could see other gardens that had a single apple trees also. They were very pretty, yet some had no fruit, and others had very little fruit and the apples were small. I enquired of the LORD what the meaning was. The reason for the lack of fruit was the lack of cross pollination. These trees all required a pollination partner, the partner has to be a different variety of the same fruit species. Two trees of the same variety will not pollinate each other. The Lord then impressed upon me these words: ‘In 2018 the bees are coming. I am sending swarms of bees to pollinate the trees, do not be afraid of the bees in your garden, do not be afraid to give away pollen, and do not chase my bees from your flowers.’
As part of our general prayer networking activity, we regularly participate in gatherings of national prayer leaders for mutual support, encouragement and updating.
Consequently a number of such leaders will be in Northern Ireland in April and we would therefore invite you to join us and hear what they have to share – could they be some of the “bees”?
