Angels Under the Terebinth Tree

Pistacia terebinthus

Pistacia terebinthus

I kinda want a terebinth tree.  All sorts of wonderful things happen under and around them in the Bible.

In Genesis 18:1-2

“Then the Lord appeared to Abraham by the terebinth trees of Mamre, as he was sitting in the tent door in the heat of the day. So he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, three men were standing by him;”

In Judges 6:11

“the Angel of the Lord came and sat under the terebinth tree which was in Ophrah, which belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, while his son Gideon threshed wheat in the winepress in order to hide it from the Midianites. And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him and said to him, ‘The Lord is with you, you mighty man of valor’!”

Of course, it takes more than a terebinth tree to get a visitation from the Lord or His angels.  But it might help.
