The grape harvest was a joyous occasion in ancient culture, when music was played and everyone was singing over the “miracle fruit.” Grapes were called this because it was during the end of the dry season when water was scarce.
People frequently avoid speaking of God in judgment but the Bible doesn’t. There are different passages that picture God treading on grapes in wrath (Isaiah 63:2-3; Jeremiah 25:30; Lamentations 1:15; Revelation 14:19-20). Since this was normally a joyous occasion, the picture is it makes God joyous to trample his enemies.

My Focus in Blogging
My story of forgiveness and healing is quite unrelated to envisioning the Bible world. But since our world is sin and pain infested, I suspect many will want to hear more about my personal experience. I wrote a couple of blogs about this, but mostly I focused on envisioning the Bible world. I learned lots after being in Israel, and now I can share that with you.
Plans for Improved Website:
Now that my documentary links are all moved under the Tour Israel menu heading, I’ll be working to improve the website for visually impaired people and the SEO. This will allow many, many more hits to this website than ever before.
Thanks for your interest.
