Did you know that the manna the children ate in the wilderness was interpreted to mean ”What is it?” What is it indeed, that we take into ourselves to give to others? As most of you know who read my blog, I am always looking into what’s in a name and into the depth of a word’s meaning.
Yesterday God called me His “Coriander Bride”…. Now, WHAT is this, huh? We, who are God’s delight, are called many names: His house, Zion, His body, His glory, the sheep of His pasture, and much more. You can be sure this special people has seed and manna that many will be asking: “What is THAT?” and we’ll be telling them: “Food for thought! And if you eat bread from the heavens of our mind, you’ll be hearing LOTS of “What is it?”’s!
The Lord recently gave me the word “steeple” to ponder, so here are some coriander seeds from my mind’s garden: I see a steeple as symbolically we who are “steep” (meaning high, deep, prominent) pointing men upward. Many times in scripture the Lord is mentioned as our “high tower.”: “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliver, my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and MY HIGH TOWER.” (Psalm 18: 2) It is through our being raised up and connected to His words that He is made everything to us, and that we become all that He is. A steeple is defined as a “high tower on top of a church tower” which I see as representing the “overcomers raised up.” The tower of the flock is specifically mentioned in Micah 4: 8
“And thou, O tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, unto you shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.”
Hallelujah! The daughter of Jerusalem is a “STEEPLE”… even a high tower who sits (rules) on top of the church. Notice that it’s a woman who’s given this ruling position! Just before sitting down to write this message, the English words “ruling one” came in my tongues…Truly, “Better is the one that rules his/her spirit, than the one who rules a city.” Proverbs 16: 32
The daughter of Zion symbolizes “the soul” who because of her union with the Lord has come into the place of ruling over “self.” It requires much tribulation in order to enter the kingdom and be given dominion in it… even the FIRST dominion. This one through her many trials has come to know her Lord intimately and has become a wonder to behold:
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her had a crown of 12 stars.” (Rev. 12: 1)
I didn’t have understanding of what the moon being under her feet meant until I read the following: “The woman standing upon the moon symbolically speaks of the daughters of God….. rising above mere creative power into generative reality, putting down the repetitious, overcoming the gatherings of the people with the commandments of men choosing perfection rather than signs and miracles, and lastly taking dominion in Christ over the polluted bloodstream to realize the reversal of the aging process and the renewing of the youth.” Norene Nichols
Then besides “Coriander Bride,” “Amano-destiny” came in my tongues and I discovered that the name meaning of “Amano” is “a connection with God’s words.” Ah, this tells me that we are “cell towers” who are transmitters of God’s words, even ones who become the word manifested through our spirit joined with His.
Whew! Now we are in a change-over time… The church age is coming to an end and those who are going on into perfection are being raised up… even to become glorious CELL towers.
Oh come now and celebrate this marvelous W0NDER: The Woman! God’s woman!!: YOU and I, together as one, standing on the moon!
