17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will POUR out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will POUR out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The sun and the moon are in perfect synchronicity. At the height of the harvest season, they double duty the lighting of the earth, as if passing a baton of light between them. When one sets, the other is already poised to rise. In the summer they lengthen the days, and in the winter, they shorten up and whisper while we sleep.
When Adam and Eve fell from grace, they also corrupted the meanings of many important words. One of those words was “hide”.
The word “hide” comes from the root “to love”. The act of “hiding” was never meant to describe what we run from, but rather what we run to. Hiding was never meant to help us run away from an enemy. No one in heaven runs from enemies. The word “hide” was meant to define the act of wrapping oneself in love.
The thing we hide in, by heaven’s definition, becomes our God. Adam and Eve should have hid themselves in God, but instead they “hid” themselves in the “trees”, which was itself an act of "tree-son". The trees became their emblem of salvation, and so the emblem of Jesus upon a tree, would be the only acceptable process for restoration.
Children often hide under the bed and behind curtains, and adults hide in their jobs and behind various masks. None of those things can save us. The only true place to “hide” is in God.
