The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters
Chapter: Jesus’ Heart/Life On Fire (Pages 345-346)
Some may say that a picture is worth a thousand words…but there are thousands upon thousands of words throughout the Bible that describe Jesus’ face and appearance…every single page.
Jeremiah 29:13 “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
It is a sad reality that we live in a world where we feel as if we must constantly be guarded and protect ourselves. If the world would only awaken, then we would not have to protect ourselves. We would be free to worship the God that created this world and all of the universe.
A portrayal of Jesus is our direction and our understanding of what God looks like…If Jesus could paint a design what would it look like? Possibly simplistic bearing all the qualities and characteristics of the prophecy within the Bible? Correct.
The Sacred Heart of Christ could be recognized as a Rose, for the rose is His bride…His church…His body…
The Bride’s Admiration
Song of Solomon 2:1-4
“I am the rose of Sharon, the lily of the valleys. Like a lily among the thorns, so is my darling among the maidens. Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. In his shade I took great delight and sat down, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He has brought me to his banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.”
This rose is not for the whole world to see, but only those who have been honorable to Christ. The rose is the truth, and the truth shall set you free…Do not fall into deceitful ways of evil, for the consequence will be a spiritual death of the soul, which is the second death. The world without Christ is poor and without hope…But the world with Christ is a foundation of strength and wisdom.
Song of Solomon 2:13-14
“The fig tree has ripened its figs, and the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along! O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the secret place of the steep pathway, let me see your form, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your form is lovely.”
If God were to ever strike vengeance, we ought to know that it will be upon those who have attempted to disrupt and prevent Jesus from discovering His bride…Such as the people who “pretend” to be helping but are only using their “limited” power to “fuel” the serious issues that we face as a country and as a world… They are all “corrupt” and have no idea of the serious repercussions for their actions…Those who have acted according to these ways will be judged and the Highest Authority (No Higher Power) will restrain you in all attempts to disrupt God’s will… There will be no room for these, and they will disappear and be forgotten, being defeated by God and His Son.
This simple description helps us to see the heart of Jesus and understand his defense and protection for His bride…
