To my delight, the word “Shiloh bride” came first thing in the morning yesterday. Truly, the soul in union with/married to “tranquility” in such a time as this shall be a wonder to behold. Shiloh” means: “pacificator” and also, “He Whose It Is.” Oh my! Would to God we were all “Shiloh brides”, but I believe only the perfected ones shall be…. even those who come to the end of themselves. “The end of a “perfect and upright man is peace (tranquility)” (Psalm 37: 37) and the way to come into the rest,.. into peace and tranquility is by becoming a “pacificator”-… a peacemaker,… one who soothes or subdues,… one who pacifies.
Grab hold of what this means and leap for joy if the Lord is working this quality in you now: To pacify is “to quell the anger, agitation or excitement of… to appease… TO CAUSE SOMEBODY WHO IS ANGRY OR UPSET TO BE CALM AND SATISFIED…. to quiet… to calm.
It is impossible to calm someone who is enraged intending to hurt you without knowing and becoming one with “He Whose It Is”… with the One whose right it is to own everything! Shiloh is the Messianic title of the “wished for One.” Do you know that YOU are a wished for one?
The Bible states that “All things are ours.” (I Cor. 3: 22) Most of us realize that those things come only by union with Him… only through our becoming without spot and without blemish…. Until then, only some things experientially are ours, although all has been given to us.
In my journey of working out my salvation, I did not initially realize that “good” is higher than “truth.” I cut off the ear of more than one person with my sword of truth because I didn’t know this. Oh yes, I often had sound truth and doctrine, but did I approach people in meekness? Did I ask the Spirit of God if the ones in my life were ready for the truth I had before sharing it? Did I put myself in their shoes so I could understand what they needed at the time? Did I ask the Lord for wisdom before charging forth to straighten them out?
It’s been a long and hard road for me to learn that speaking the truth at the wrong time and with a wrong heart KILLS. The fruit from the tree of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was all too often chosen rather than the fruit from the tree of life! Sigh! I’m sure that everyone who reads this knows what I’m talking about.
Who among us is so in tune with the Lord that in every situation the mind of Christ is activated, not the carnal mind? I have never forgotten a testimony of Nancy Cohen who preached in a Muslim nation to many believers who had lost loved ones after 500 pastors had been murdered and many churches burned. In the middle of the service, a great gasp and hush came over all the people as tyrants led by the leader who was responsible for the killings and devastation came bursting through the doors. Nancy, cool as the morning dew, welcomed that leader stating how she was happy to see him and then informing him that he was there by divine appointment. Immediately words of knowledge came flowing out of her which brought him sobbing to his knees.
We, brethren, are to have this kind of divine wisdom and power in every adverse situation we face. We are called “to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, to break every yoke, to deal our bread to the hungry, to bring the poor that are cast out to His house, to cover the naked and not hide ourselves from our own flesh:
THEN our light shall break forth as the morning and our health shall spring forth speedily: and our righteousness shall go before us; The glory of the Lord shall be our rereward.
THEN shall we call, and the Lord shall answer; we shall cry, and He shall say, “Here I am!” if we take away from the midst of us the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
And if we draw out our souls to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; THEN shall our light rise in obscurity, and our darkness be as the noonday:
And the Lord will guide us continually, and satisfy our souls in drought, and make fat our bones; and we shall be like watered gardens, and like springs of water, whose waters fail not.
And they that shall be of us shall build the old waste places; we shall raise up the fountains of many generations; and we shall be called: “The repairers of the breach, restorers of paths to dwell in.
If we turn away our feet from the sabbath, from doing our pleasure on His holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honorable; and shall honor Him, not doing our own ways, nor finding our own pleasure, nor speaking our own words:
THEN shall we delight ourselves in the Lord; and God will cause us to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed us with the heritage of Jacob our father; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.” Isaiah 58: 6- 14
Indeed, THEN we shall be healed… THEN we shall be “Shiloh Brides”! Hallelujah!
This morning I heard the word “quantum leap” and saw myself making such a leap. Our God is going to empower us to leap over the obstacles that have held us down and all who are in heaven and on earth shall hear: “Here comes the bride”… Here comes that “wished for one” coming down the isle of perfect love!
