“Jeremiah, what do you see?” Jeremiah said,
“I see a branch of an almond tree,
God: “I AM READY TO PERFORM MY WORD!” Jeremiah 1:11-12.

Awakening causes us to SEE and encounter God, removing the choking and blinding debris from our path. “The Almond tree in Hebrew is the wakeful tree. It awakes from the winter sleep earlier than other trees, flowering in January and fruiting in March. The Hebrew word for Almond, “shaked”, is also translated “to watch”. By seeing the almond branch, God assured Jeremiah that He is watching over His word to bring it to pass, no matter the passage of time.

This tree is a picture of strength and endurance because though this flower looks fragile and delicate, it can with stand harsh winter winds and rain.  James 1:2-4: “ Consider it all a joy, my brethren when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance, and let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

The almond tree blossom heralds the soon arrival of spring. In the spirit many find yourselves toward the end of a very long winter…well hold on because (spiritual) spring is coming and your sudden breakthrough of God’s word is about to blossom and bear fruit.

God is activating you so that you can now begin the work and do what He has asked/called you to do. It’s also a timely reminder that “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.” Philippians 1:6.

Pomegranate Ministries was founded in 2010 when the Lord spoke to Sonnet Hanekom about preparing the Bride of Christ. The instrument given to her was the fragrances in biblical anointing oils.

Sonnet started this journey as a reseller of another ministry’s oils, but after much training, reading, praying and waiting, the Lord lead me to start blending oils in 2014.

The Pomegranate symbolises the Bride of Christ and the love of the Bridegroom for the bride.

Pomegranate Ministries also blend oils for individuals and other ministries upon request.
