Apples, Apricots, Art, Asparagus, and Almonds
Almonds bloom in the winter, with their blossoms looking like snowflakes when they fall. In Numbers 17, when Arron’s authority was tested by others and Moses gathered the leaders’ rods and put them in the tent of testimony, it was Arron’s that bloomed, verse 8; “On the next day Moses went into the tent of the testimony, and behold, the staff of Aaron for the house of Levi had sprouted and put forth buds and produced blossoms, and it bore ripe almonds.” How God, is that. Not only did the dry stick, sprout it budded, bloomed and bore ripe almonds overnight. Arron’s rod displayed the stages of nine months of growth all at one time. When you think about it God is outside of time, doing the impossible to bring fulfillment to prove Himself in control. I am thankful that He is in control even when I can’t see Him working.
