Dust is a biblical/prophetic symbol for the flesh. The Bible says we are made of dust! What happens to dust when rain outpours? Or when fire ignites?
Genesis 3:19- By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
Psalms 103:13-14- As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Kick the Dust off!
Matthew 10:14- And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town.
🎯This passage is saying, hey kick the flesh off and keep it moving, lest you draw a serpent! Keep moving forward in the spirit, go to where you are recieved.
Shake the dust from your feet! Feet the symbol for going, movement, mobility, ministry call, good news, beautiful are the feet of them who bring good news! Are you bringing good news, or spreading news otherwise?
Two types of Vessels
Some are dustier than others…flesh births flesh, spirit births spirit.
Roman’s 9:21- Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?
So we can partner on purpose with a little intention and effort and shake it off! Shake and Arise! 💞
Isaiah 52:2- Shake yourself from the dust and arise; be seated, O Jerusalem; loose the bonds from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
Otherwise we give the serpents food! Serpents actually eat dust, and they cannot see the greatest but they sense dust or heat! If you carry the FIRE and the serpents come you are well equipped to cut off heads and cast them into the fire like Apostle Paul did!
Genesis 3:17- The LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life.
The Holy Spirit Symbols
The rain and the fire are neccessary to keep the dust down! So we walk after the Spirit not the flesh! We share the good news not the gossip news nor the hurting news.
The Holy Spirit comes as Wind, Rain, Fire…what happens to dust in the wind???
He is our Helper…He empowers us to do all we are called to do, the Wind, Rain, and Fire we should seek! Otherwise we might become a dust storm rather than a Glory Storm⚡⚡⚡
