Yew Tree a symbol of resurrection hope
In England, the Common Yew Tree (or English yew, Taxus baccata) is often found in churchyards.
They are placed there as a symbol of long life, and to ward off evil some are known to be 2000 years old.
Britain is unique in having the largest number of ancient yews in the world:
Early Christian missionaries recognized the sacred nature of the trees and built their churches near them.
“This is how the Lord wanted his church to be: universal, a great tree whose branches shelter the birds of the air”
Yew trees have holy powers in keeping evil away, for guarding protecting travelers some say.
There is a yew tree in Fortingall Perthshire, Scotland it is estimated as being between 3,000 and 5,000 years old.
Yew is a poisonous tree. Arrow tips used to be dipped in a yew poison and the wood was used to make long bows.
Recently Taxol has been extracted from yew bark this helps fight cancer.
In churchyards the yew trees were usually planted in a deliberate manner, with one often beside the path leading from the funeral gateway of the churchyard to the main door of the church – a symbol of resurrection hope for the mourners and a practical place for the men of God to on a wet or windy day.

We found this twisted tree outside of a church in West Sussex as we continued our quest around the ancient churches of England.
The strange powerful force which YHWH used to create this tree we experienced when visiting the area, made our camera to malfunction.
There are many unseen powers which the Lord has created which are very real, this tree is a good example.
YHWH Creator of all things.
The Lord said, “Daniel was given the ability to understand the prophecies which are contained in the visions which came to him in dreams.
But, the very last vision that was shown to him was revealed to him in a prophecy by an angel, this angel’s body was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightening, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.
The angel told him about the prophecy, but although Daniel heard, he did not understand the words that the angel spoke, because the understanding of these words of this prophecy were closed up and sealed until the time of the end, these are the end times, The book of Revelation breaks the seal which holds the book of Daniel shut and reveals the secrets of God for the end times. You are the wise ones, and it is to you that the mysteries of God are revealed, “thus saith the Lord”.
The Lord said, “An angel was sent to St John from heaven to give God’s people understanding of the prophecies of the end times. For Jesus is coming very soon even at the door. The angel said there is no seal upon this book, the book of Revelation reveals that many will come to know Jesus in these end times, and though their sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool, and the wise shall understand that they are to live righteously and live holy lives, for you who believe have chosen to follow Christ, if the world wants to live in sin and wickedness, then that is their choice, you are going to heaven.
Blessed are they that do Jesus commandments, that they might have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates of the city, here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus, “thus saith the Lord”.
