The mustard seed that God sowed in His field was very small, smaller than all the seeds. The kingdom that started out by faith was continued on in human strength. The once humble, lowly mustard bush has grown prideful. Now at the end of the age has become a self-styled “tree”, larger than the garden plants. This tree is now very big with many large and small denominational branches. It has grown large through ambition, innovation and self-effort. It has become strong in its own strength. And it is visible and admired to the end of the whole earth! It has enlarged its authority, dominion and power. The tree gives credit to itself for growing so big and is quite proud of its height and size. It is a very successful tree in its own right; a kingdom with many mortal kings.

However the birds of the air have come to nest in its branches. These are the same birds that snatched and devoured the seeds that fell by the way side. These are evil birds, the birds of prey; the owls, the crows, the ravens, the eagles, hawks, vultures and buzzards. Evil has come in. These have an agenda. They have alighted, they have taken residence, they have eaten, they have brought destruction and noise. They are quite comfortable. In their power they have claimed their turf, building their nests in God’s tree (where they hatch little Valkyries). They have imported magick, death, confusion, mischief, sin, pride, bondage, lies, and fear. It is no longer safe for the little sparrows and doves.

They eat up the gentle songbirds. Like vultures they circle around the dead and dying, and wherever there is war or a graveyard. They are rather social; gathering in large numbers in the tree. They work well together to accomplish their goals. They are “wise”,  intelligent, esoteric and stealthily bring in brilliant mystical ideas, false visions, false wisdom and occult knowledge. They have brought their dark energy, satanic powers of spiritual enlightenment and sorcery into the tree. They peddle New Age illumination in their chosen place of residence. They shapeshift to look Christian on the outside. They perch on the branches of the great tree, dominating it. Their transformation of this tree has produced the ultimate Shift.

These birds of the air were sent by the prince of the power of the air, to take over this tree. They are his messengers sent to communicate lies to the unwary and undiscerning tree. The tree would be no match for these spiritual birds; though strong in outward physical form it is spiritually weak without the power of the living God. These birds have substituted witchcraft power. The evil birds sit confidently atop the tree, symbolizing the victory of their master’s empire and rule over the tree. The tree is thus completely corrupted by evil. When the King returns, He will deal with this matter.

Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. Matt. 13:31-32
