Artist Interpretation -
When the leathery outer covering of an almond husk, known as a drupe, is mature, it will split open and, in time fall from the fertilized flowers of the tree, releasing its stone. Almond trees have a "waiting" period that typically lasts five years, but can take as long as 12 years to reach full maturity for harvest. When the Lord showed me the image of the almond split open, it spoke of the time of rest and “waiting” we are currently in and of the season of maturity we are entering. Patiently growing and and maturing “in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ,” in anticipation of the season of harvest before us.
“until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.” - Ephesians 5:13-15
