FRAGRANT PRAISE
MOUNTAIN OF SPICES
MY FRAGRANCE IS MY ARMOR!
CHAPTER SIX

 

 

It was in 2020 when I heard Holy Spirit say,

“Don’t say you’re ‘just’ a piece of ‘remnant’ fabric, but say, pray, take this piece of remnant fabric and use it for your glory”!

Then, I heard the Holy Spirit say again, “You're not ‘just’ a piece, but you’re a piece of the WHOLE”!

It was an invitation to join Holy Spirit! His breath joined with my breath, his deep joining with my deep becoming one breath, one pen, and one quil.

​ Oh my Eagle EYE!

How your feathers turn into a quill a writing pen for MY glory.​

You're my poet warrior!

A WARRIOR FOR MY GLORY!

 

​ Poet Warriors bear his intimate fragrance on the mountain of spices! It's how you rise, and ascend in battle! Have you ever wondered why King David bore no armor?  It's because his armor was His Fragrance.

 

​ When your armor is fragrant the enemy can't find you! Maturated believers wear armor because they’ve learned intimacy which is faithfulness in the storm. ​

This fragrance is bendable, flexible, and lightweight.

This fragrance, or bow is our heart. ​

 

I was in Georgia, USA in 2012  when in a church service

( as my arms were raised)

  I experienced a vision of a woman

 with vines springing over her head and shoulders.

These vines seemed to be rising out of her chest from a bow that rested within her chest. ​ I noticed there wasn't a bow "string", or an arrow!  

What I did see, though, was fruit! I saw living fruit!  

​ Isaiah 49:22

Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough near a spring whose branches climb over the wall.

The archers will attack him, they will shoot at him and oppose him.

But his bow will remain steady, and his hands will be skillful; because of the hands of the mighty one of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel, because of the God of your father, who will help you, because of the sovereign God, who will bless you with blessings from the sky above, blessings from the deep that lies below, and blessings of the breast and womb.

 

These vines were the aroma of her praise rising!

The love for "THE BELOVED" causes our fruits of LOVE to arise!

 

​ As I contemplated-pondered this in my heart I understood more revelation of the vision placed before me! ​ One evening when reading Songs of Solomon chapter one verses 13 and 14, I began to see the "fruitful bow vision again."

 

​ In the vision, the bow was full of fruit and inset in her breast. 

​  A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwist my breast.

My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.

​ The portion in scripture that stood out to me, was:  a bundle of myrrh is my beloved that lies all night between my breast.

 

God took me into a beautiful study in Ephesians 5:1

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.

 

If we are imitators of God, as Paul is asking that we are, then we reveal God's love through our love for one another.

 

 We are a dwelling place in which we live by the Spirit. We are being joined together, one to another, and raised into a holy temple in Christ.

He adopted us and raised us from the dead through Christ when He raised Christ from the dead. He gave us GRACE, Redemption, forgiveness, wisdom and understanding, and mysteries of his will.

​ As we put on LOVE, ( the fruit "bundle of myrrh") we BECOME imitators of God.

We are raised together as we put on love. ​

His purpose was to make one new humanity out of the two In him "Yehovah" the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple. In Him, we are being built together. ​

 We are HIS dwelling place.

​ So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors, and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, works in love, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

 

​ These strands, or vines rising and springing over her head and shoulders reminded me of perfume billowing!

 

​ It was the perfume of LOVE rising from her beloved to those around her. ​

Many years ago when attending Trinity Church I received this prophetic word: ​ You are a very expensive perfume and your fragrance will catch the nostrils of so many. They will want to know why you smell this way. It will be the presence of the anointing that they see. :

 They will smell and want it, for it is more costly than the world can buy. The Lord will allow you to bring a fragrance that will truly be heavenly. Prophetic word given by: Herald Chamberlain in early 2000.

 

  ​

​ ​ JOSEPH'S FRUITFUL BOUGH!

​ Psalm 45:7-15 You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions. All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad. ​

 John 4:13 Jesus replied, “Everyone who drinks some of this water will be thirsty again.

But whoever drinks some of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again, but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.” It's the fruit of works in Love.

 

Isaiah 49:22

Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough near a spring whose branches climb over the wall. The archers will attack him, they will shoot at him and oppose him. But his bow will remain steady, and his hands will be skillful; because of the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob, because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel, because of the God of your father, who will help you, because of the sovereign God, who will bless you with blessings from the sky above, blessings from the deep that lies below, and blessings of the breasts and womb.

 

 I stumbled on this quote by  David Garrick, ​ "Boughs that bear most, hang lowest". ​

 

2 Corinthians 2:14

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things?  

Isaiah 61:10 24

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord; I will be overjoyed because of my God.

 

For he clothes me in garments of deliverance; he puts on me a robe symbolizing vindication.

I look like a bridegroom when he wears a turban as a priest would; I look like a bride when she puts on her jewelry. For just as the ground produces its crops and a garden yields its produce, so the sovereign Lord will cause deliverance to grow, and give his people a reason to praise him in the sight of all the nations.

Hallelujah!

Praise the Lord! ​

 

I realized the fruit I saw was an "aroma !" God revealed to me, in this vision, an aroma of our love for one another. ​ ​ Works in LOVE raises us "AS ONE" in Christ together forming a house, a dwelling place in which God lives by his Spirit! I've only just begun to unfold the understanding of the vision.

 

There's so much more to unfurl. ​

God has been training the bride to ride the white horse of revelations!

 

  ​ Revelations 19:11

 Then I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows, but himself.  He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses.  From his mouth comes to a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.  On his robe and his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.

 

Here are a few scriptures regarding arrows, shields, and swords in the word of God:

Psalm 127:4

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth.

 

​ Psalm 11:2

For behold, the wicked bend the bow; they have fitted their arrow to the string to shoot in the dark at the upright in heart;  For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart. ​

 Isaiah 49:2 He has made My mouth like a sharp sword, In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me, And He has also made Me a select arrow, He has hidden Me in His quiver. ​

 

 Ephesian 6:17

In addition to all, take up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. ​

 

 Zechariah 9:13

I will bend Judah as I bend my bow and fill it with Ephraim. I will rouse your sons, Zion, against your sons, Greece, and make you like a warrior’s sword. ​

 

In all of this, God has called us HIS "Fragrant PRAISE!"

Only in the crushing, and the blending of hearts, we enter into the HOLY of HOLIES!

 

It's only in the crushing... God mantles us with HIS armor!

 

​ Ephesians 6:11-13

 “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness in this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. ​

 

The ARMOR of GOD produces a YIELDED AND SURRENDERED HEART full of SERVENTHOOD!

​ ​ THAT'S WHY MEN'S HEARTS ARE LIKENED TO A RIVER! IF A RIVER (FLOWS AND OVERFLOWS) WITHIN A HEALTHY FLOODPLAIN IT IS MUCH LIKE A surrendered TONGUE, or the surrendered pen of a ready writer!

 

Psalm 45:1 My heart overflows with a good theme; I address my verses to the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. ​

I declare heavy structures "be lifted off of you in Jesus' name!"

 

 I declare your "Floodplains be full down to its' aquifers!"   ​ ​ ​
