A common greeting used over the centuries has been: “How do you do?” and often, as a friendly gesture, a hand was extended to shake. In our generation, most of us don’t greet each other this way, but spiritual hands always reach out for a shake with the hope that a little bit of heaven can come when two hands are joined together. There’s another kind of “do” our hands can grab hold of-… the kind that will fill our heads with refreshing life and renew our youth:
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity… as the dew of Herman, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there Yahweh commanded the blessing, even LIFE forevermore.” (Psalm 133: 1)
This morning I heard the words: “A heavenly dew” and the realization came that the first word God gives us every day is like the dew that covers His morning glories and all the other flowers that express His glory. It is a heavenly dew because it’s from the One Who sits in the heavens of our mind. So come to Mount Hermon and drink some Mountain Dew with me now,… not soda pop, but a heavenly drink with revelation’s energy in it that can satisfy our thirst:
“I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying: “Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with DEW and my locks with the drops of the night.” Song of Solomon 5: 2) This is a picture of the Bridegroom, but it also depicts the ones who are of the High Order of the Melchizedek Priesthood… even us, grown up with our every thought under the obedience of Christ.
Under the new covenant, we are not given old manna, but under the new one, “hidden manna” is ours… even spiritual food that is connected with the dew. “And when the DEW fell upon the camp in the night, the MANNA fell upon it. (Numbers 11:9) Recently the Lord told me we’re His “Coriander-Bride” and oh how perfectly God is progressively, step by step, unveiling what He’s “dewing” in His seed.
Psalm 110: 3,4 adds this beautiful promise: “Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the DEW of thy youth. Yahweh has sworn, and will not repent, thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
Note that it’s in the beauties of HOLINESS that we shall be made ready to follow Him wherever He leads us. Oh how close we are to experiencing transfiguration and afterwards the redemption of our bodies in this very day of His power. We are coming into more than a reversal of aging,…. even a combination of youth AND maturity.
God asked Job: “Who has begotten the drops of dew?” indicating that dew is “birthed.” Every mother knows what pain and suffering is involved in giving birth to a baby and every believer following in the Apostle Paul’s steps knows well the tribulation it takes for Christ to be fully formed in us. I think of the saying: “Grin and bear it!” and yes, we can grin with joy because of the PROOF of God’s life and power in us. Remember that Gideon asked for proof to confirm the word He had been given and it was dew that God used as proof.
To have our heads filled with dew is to have His thoughts become ours and when EVERY thought is His thought, our youth will be renewed. THAT will be the undeniable proof that the Lord Jesus Christ LIVES in us. So you who are in labor: Get ready, get ready to birth dew:
It’s the heavenly thing to do!
