I am sorry to see the end of September Spirit but it is not the end of the Spirit working in us for sure, and I hope you have been blessed this month and please go back and read or share if you like. Those familiar with my blog know how I like pretty pictures, and I had used veils recently and I could have called this fragrance of the Spirit, maybe I will do one called that, but i want us to realize that we are wrapped in the Spirit as a believer, a woman of faith and virtue.
We are literally wrapped in Jesus, and He has given us access to the Father, imagine us, mere mortal women, allowed behind the curtain or veil of the temple into the holy of holies. It was a solemn and holy place that only a high priest could go, and even he faced death were he not in right standing, a cord was tied to his foot, in case they had to drag him out.
But Jesus is now our beloved High Priest, and He as embraced us with His sacrifice and love, His flesh, the veil, torn for us. Did you know it was four inches thick, and rent in two when He died? By His grace and Spirit, we can come boldly and without fear to the Father and make our petitions known.
Imagine Jesus walking you into the Holy of Holies, and showing you the Mercy Seat, letting you there with Him. His blood was shed for us. And His body representing the Eucharist, we can have holy Communion with Him, figuratively and literally, And in the Spirit.
We are held, wrapped and comforted in His fragrant love, joy and peace. The Rose of Sharon, the sweet smelling savor or love, envelopes us. Have you ever experienced anything like that? I have, as I was sitting here typing one day, a sweet smell encompassed me and I realized I had on no perfume but it was powerful and a lovely, sweet scent of His presence.
While we enjoy glimpses of heavenly dreams or visions or experiences, even angelic ones, we long to walk in that anointing that welcomes Him with worship day and night, He really is in us, around us and through us, as a believer. The worries of the world have desensitized us to the presence and walk with the Spirit, let’s not let that be taken away, stolen by an enemy that has no place in our midst.
I want to leave you with the thought of Jesus love as a bouquet of of roses given to you and another poetry quote, and of course the Word.
” Unable are the loved to die for love is immortality. ” Emily Dickinson
For believers in Him, God’s love is immortality and resurrection. If you do not know Him as Lord, now is the time. He is returning soon, and wants you seated with Him at His banqueting table, His banner over us is love. Song of Solomon 2:4, that represents the chuppah ( pronounced hoop a ) where the wedding is held, the beloved bridegroom is coming for the church, a figurative and spiritual union in heaven.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you above your companions with the oil of joy. All your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; from palaces of ivory the harps make you glad. Psalm 45:7,8
Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart; so does the sweetness of one’s friend by advice from the heart. Proverbs 27:9
The fragrance of your perfume is pleasing; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens adore you. Song of Solomon 1:3
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 2 Corinthians 2:12 NKJV
Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing. 2 Corinthians 2:15
Be imitators of God, therefore, as beloved children, and walk in love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant sacrificial offering to God. Ephesians 5:1,2
