Colossians 2:7 “Rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
The Scene: A giant oak tree with its root system exposed to view, symbolic of born-again children of God, rooted in His Son, Jesus, and His Word.
” For if you are rooted in me nothing can befall you that you cannot overcome, ‘Said the Lord.”
Romans 15:12 “And again, Isaiah says, ‘The Root of Jesse* will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him.’ “
Like the giant oak tree shown in the vision, which shows a great root system maintaining this mighty oak, we, God’s children, are rooted in Christ.
Isaiah 11:1-3a “A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse *; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him–the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord– and he will delight in the fear of the Lord .”
Jesse: was the father of King David; Mary the mother of Jesus was a descendent of King David. Jesus, too, was of the tribe of Judah and the lineage of Jesse and King David. Also, Jesus’ stepfather Joseph was of the lineage of King David, Jacob, and Abraham.
