🌀️🌬️🌻THE PARABLE OF THE DANDELIONS🌻🌬️🌀️ - A Spiritual Allegory

Ground Squirrel Eating Dandelion
Recently, while I was praying and communing with our beloved Messiah and His Spirit, I had a parabolic spiritual insight about dandelions. This insight so caught my attention that it led me to a wonderful, multifaceted spiritual study! I feel the study has a great deal of merit. So I really wanted to share it with everyone who loves Yahshua. It should also prove to be an inspiration to everyone hoping in the coming Rapture and resurrection into everlasting life. 

The first thing I did after writing out a short outline of what God had shown me, I searched the scriptures for any verses that might shed light on using plants for medicine as well as food. The very first one I found teaches us that Adam and Eve ate a strictly seed-bearing plant based diet of fruits, vegetables, lettuce and other greens, berries, legumes, nuts, and seeds, just as all the other living things in the Garden ate plants and their fruit and seeds. This included the animals and fish that we view as meat-eating predators today. They also ate a plant based diet, and - according to scripture - they will return to that diet during the Millennial Rule of Yahshua and thereafter (See Isaiah 11:6-9).

Genesis 1:29-31 - "And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good."

Among these plants, the dandelion was one of the herbs given to eat, and it is found growing all over the world today. Many animals eat the entire plant, and others just like to eat the leaves and flowers, like squirrels and rabbits - and bees like their pollen too! Since the dandelion is a seed bearing plant with leaves that can be eaten raw as a salad green when they are new, it was intended to be eaten for the nourishment and health of the body. In addition. its roots and mature green leaves can be boiled in water to make a healing tea. In fact, as ancient medicine and Chinese medicine attests, all healing medicines were once derived from plants, especially those in the herb family. What's more, many modern medicines are merely highly concentrated bastardizations of herbal remedies that have been altered to take away their ability to heal, and so they only treat the symptoms!

Fresh and Roasted Dandelion Roots

At the time I received this revelation about them, dandelions were brought to my mind because I had just been thanking and praising Yahweh God for the good results in my health that I've been getting from drinking roasted dandelion root tea. I have been drinking that everyday along with regular black or green tea in an effort to improve my health and treat my ailing liver, and it has had amazing results. Not only is my skin clearer, and my sinuses and lungs less congested, but the inflammation and swelling all over my body has been greatly reduced, especially the swelling in my liver. I also attribute it with helping to purify my blood, and with correcting the severe anemia that I was suffering from.

In many parts of the world today, dandelions are viewed as common and bothersome weeds. Because of their deep roots and ability to spread quickly, dandelions are often considered to be unsightly and unwelcome enemies of those aspiring to having golf-course perfect green lawns. But children generally find dandelions quite pretty, and they love to pick them and give them as a present to someone they love, which says something about these sun-loving plants. Not only do kids gravitate towards them, but they're also powerful healing herbs whose habits and appearance tell a charming spiritual story.

First of all, mature dandelion plants have deep, strong roots that are virtually impossible to get out of the ground once they're established. Secondly, they produce beautiful round flowers with bright yellow petals nestled in beds of unusual dark green, serrated-edged leaves, which make excellent, mineral rich salad greens when they're young. 

Interestingly, as I was thinking about these facts about dandelions, the Holy Spirit showed me that those deep roots can signify a strong foundation for spiritual growth. That's because the bright yellow flowers those roots feed can represent new congregations of righteous people by faith, and new creations in the making. With this in mind, dandelion flowers can be seen as groups of like-minded believers in Yahshua the Messiah. New believers in Christ tend to be happy and sunny-minded people. That's because they were once unrepentant sinners like weeds, which are called tares in the Bible. Tares can signify unrepentant sinners that are unwanted and unwelcome in the Kingdom of Heaven until they repent.

But when sinners hear the Good News of Salvation, admit their guilt, and repent before God, they're forgiven and filled with the Holy Spirit. Interestingly, dandelion flowers are dressed in bright yellow. Like sunlight, the dandelion's cheery yellow flowers can represent the joy that often accompanies the process of being born again in the image of Yahshua. Their bright, joy inducing yellow clothes show what they're becoming by their faith in the redeeming power of God's Son, and by the indwelling presence of His Spirit in their hearts.πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ•Š️

The dandelion's flowers show their connection to the Messiah's promise of salvation for the righteous when they close up tightly and form a green bud that is like a cocoon where the yellow petals are shut off from the light and are transformed into seeds, which are essentially dead until they are buried in the ground and sprout into entirely new plants. This symbolizes righteous people who were once unwanted weeds, but who have died to the world to live for Yahshua. 

Then the green buds filled with seeds that symbolize the heart of every believer hoping in the resurrection opens and reveals that the petals have turned into feathery white-clad seeds. Their tiny bone white to brown seeds are equipped with their own fluffy white, wind-catching umbrellas that can be likened to feathery angel's wings! There is also a scripture alluding to the dew of herbs in regard to the resurrection from the dead that ties in very well with what God showed me about dandelions as a dew-catching herb:

Isaiah 26:19-21 - "Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body they shall arise.
Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust;
For your dew is like the dew of herbs,
And the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,
And shut your doors behind you;
Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment,
Until the indignation is past.
21 For behold, the Lord comes out of His place
To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity..."

Dandelion Seeds Flying in the Wind
When the wind blows, the dandelion's lighter-than-a-feather seeds lift off the plant and fly up towards heaven with the breeze, and very easily sprout when they settle on fields of grass or on patches of barren soil where sunshine and water are readily available. The white, feathery parachutes attached to dandelion seeds catch the wind that carries them wherever the wind (or the Spirit) goes. For this reason, flying dandelion seeds can symbolize the Holy Spirit and guardian angels moving new disciples in Yahshua to soar to new spiritual heights. Like dandelion seeds carried by the wind, true disciples strive to travel afar to find even more potentially new disciples in Yahshua. They go out to spread the Good News, and they often plant new seeds of faith.

In this way, these disciples create new disciples. Like the disciples who witnessed to them, these new disciples will be clothed first in joyful yellow when they experience the joy of forgiveness, and gain the all-encompassing love of God through the Messiah. Then like the dandelion seeds, these new disciples are allegorically clothed in pure white to show how they have willingly died to the world to live for Yahshua. The white feather like umbrellas that make dandelion seeds airborne are like angels flying towards the Sun, whose light causes dead seeds to burst forth with new life that will shine as brightly as the Sun or Son, who gives birth to the newly saved via the Holy Spirit!πŸ•Š️πŸ’•

Isn't it beautiful how so many things in Yahweh God's wonderful Creation speak of His tender love for His children? I sure think so, especially when He shows me parables in the simplest of things - like the dandelions in my garden that I harvest as medicine. This is such a wonderful blessing, and I am glad that I could share it with my beloved brothers and sisters to give them encouragement and hope in the Rapture, and in our everlasting lives to come. I hope that this dandelion parable helps you all to see more of the world through God's all-seeing eyes. In this regard, the following scripture seems fitting:

Hebrews 6:7 - "For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God..."

River of Living Water Surrounded By Tree of Life

I'm very much looking forward to our coming resurrection from the dead in new bodies. Because, in the New Creation, we will no longer be mere weeds! Instead, we will be like brilliant and beautiful fruits and flowers of every color and variety - giving off a pleasing fragrance for God the Father, the Holy Spirit, and God's Son and our Messiah to enjoy with us forever!πŸ‘‘πŸ’–πŸ™ Perhaps this is why the Tree of Life, which is tied to Yahshua as our Messiah, is described as a grove of many trees with twelve different varieties of fruit, and with miraculous leaves that can heal, just as Yahshua does:

Revelation 22:1-2 - "And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." 

I can only imagine how beautiful the river of Living Water flowing from God's throne room in the New Jerusalem will look surrounded by the Tree of Life bearing all those different kinds of fruits. All I know is that it will be glorious beyond description!
