However most of the tree showed no sign of life:
Since then I have looked at this tree every time I've gone that way and there has been no sign of life spreading to the bare branches. Then, this week, I noticed it had been cut down so I went over to look at where it had been when the man watering some nearby flowerbeds said "They had to cut it down as the core was rotten."
Now I am sure this is a warning from God about the church but what in particular. The church I was attending, any church which is rotten to the core or all the western church? I don't know but I suspect it is more a warning to be careful about which church you attend.
