Grapes Represent The Wrath and Judgment of God

Num 13:23 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.

The Israelites went across into the mount of the Amorites and there found one vine Branch with a cluster of grapes so big that they put it upon a staff, and it took two of them to carry it and bring it back to the Israelite camp.

Rev 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
Rev 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

We know from scripture that grapes represent the end product of wine, which represents the wrath of God.

Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

We know that Babylon represents all the religions and false doctrines of the world.


Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

These clusters of grapes which the spies brought back from the promised land were a prophesy of the wrath that we must go through inwardly before we can experience the peace of knowing that we inherit the land. This knowledge is only known by the wrath of God upon our flesh, which represents the Amorites who initially defeated them when they tried to battle the flesh with their own head knowledge. It is the faith of Christ in us that learns to trust in the promises of God the Father, that is able to withstand these wars that are the wrath of God upon our flesh. All of this to say, that I am learning more and more daily to trust in God that the trials that are constant are for the death of my Amoritish flesh and the life of Israel in me, who is the promised SEED.
