SIGNS FROM GOD-Beast of a weed creeping across Midwest from south......*The Resurrection Plant*
t's a beast of a weed, creeping north into the Midwest from cotton country.

Palmer amaranth can shoot up as high as 7 feet, and just one plant can produce up to a million seeds. Herbicide is increasingly futile against it, and the weed's thick stems and deep roots make it hard work to clear by hand. It can slash yields and profits when it gets out of control.

Midwestern weed scientists are sounding the alarm because the plant recently turned up in Iowa and can cause deep losses in corn and soybean yields.

Cotton growers in the South already spend about $100 million a year to try to keep it out of their fields, University of Georgia scientist Stanley Culpepper said.

"This is a crop robber," said W.C. Grimes, who farms 1,600 acres of cotton, peanuts and corn near Twin City in eastern Georgia. "It will steal your profit. It will choke your cotton out, and anything else you're trying to grow."

Grimes said he was losing up to 200 pounds of cotton per acre until farmers learned the key to overcoming Palmer amaranth's resistance to glyphosate — sold under brand names like Roundup — was to continuously change herbicides.

Amaranth:

A large family of plants that includes weeds and garden plants. Goodspeed translates the amaranth, also called the "rolling thing", of Isaiah 7:13 as the tumbleweed.

It is also called the "resurrection plant" and the "rose of Jericho".

The Greek word for amaranth means "unfading". This describes the bloom's ability to retain its color when dried.

This meaning is used symbolically in I Peter 1:4 and 5:4, where the inheritance of the faithful is described as unfading. Thus, the amaranth became a symbol of immortality.


1 Peter 1:4

4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you,

*amaranthine means ‘it lasts forever’.

The Amaranthine* Life
Amaranthine* means life without end,
to my sorry old ears a God-send.
Land of Beulah it is.
Hephzibah? That’s his biz.
Ask the Lord. It’s a gift I can’t lend.
so it is



BEULAH LAND


I am dwelling on the mountain,
Where the golden sunlight gleams
O’er a land whose wondrous beauty
Far exceeds my fondest dreams,
Where the air is pure, ethereal,
Laden with the breath of flowers,
They are blooming by the fountain,
’Neath the amaranthine* bow’rs.

Refrain

Is not this the Land of Beulah?
Blessèd, blessèd land of light;
Where the flowers bloom forever,
And the sun is always bright.

This! Eat the "weeds"!

The young leaves are prepared like spinach (raw or cooked). The older leaves are boiled or sautéed with herbs of your choice. The seeds are ground into flours.

Meanwhile, GMO corn gives you massive tumors as you age and GMO wheat tears up your digestive tract to the eventual point that you can no longer absorb nutrients.

Er, what was the question again?

Matthew 13..


The Parable of the Weeds


24 Jesus told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.

“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

29 “‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”

The Parables of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast

31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”

So if we eat the seeds of this plant, we might become immortal?
