Morning Star Fragrance Arising
Know the importance of the season you’re in and a wise son you will be…
(Proverbs 10:5a The Passion Translation)
When I shared this word in Colombia, the fragrance of the Lily came in strong and many smelled Him. The prophetic breaker anointing brought forth the heart of our Father. He is the center of our worship. I have seen astounding miracles and a ‘Light’ appearing where I have been. (I will share more about this ‘Light’ in another update)
The Lord awoke me early in the morning on September 20, 2015. He brought me to sit with Him in the Family Room. As I looked out the window the stars were bright. There was 1 star near the mountains east of us shining brighter then the others.
I heard the Lord whisper: Bright Morning Star
After a few moments with Him, He had me go back to bed to rest. He awakened me again, this time filling my room with the fragrance of lilies. It was lovely, a very strong, sweet, intoxicating fragrance.
Then a couple nights later, Yom Kippur Eve, as I retired for the evening my entire bedroom filled with the smell of another fragrance, frankincense. Randy walked in and asked me if I was burning a candle. I said no and asked him if he smelled it too. He said yes. He checked the house to make sure that no one had lit a candle anywhere. He said the fragrance was only in our bedroom and in the basement room that is going to be our worship room. We had decided that night to host the Burn in our home. The Burn is continuous worship for up to 24 hours or more.
Here are a few things the Lord has spoken to me about these occurrences and the season we are in. He spoke these 2 scripture passages to my heart:
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” (Revelation 22:16)
So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. But know this first of all, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. (2Peter1:19-21)
The Lord is announcing a change of seasons. He is birthing a new day in His kingdom. For those who know Him and have followed His directions through the dark night, trials and shakings…even those that will come come; the Lord is going to reward His Bride. Not all are prepared or ready to be His Bride.
“The Morning Star is the first star of the day…it ushers in change of seasons and is the scheduler of earth’s activities. The morning star is the one that rewards the saints.” (Prophets Dictionary)
Let my prayer be as the evening sacrifice, That burns like fragrant incense,
Rising as my offering to You As I lift up my hands in surrendered worship!
We are to shine bright for we have HIM, the Bright Morning Star in us. As we worship Him, as we ascend in Him with Him in heavenly places living in the flame of love, our lives are fragrant with worship. His fragrance draws those to Him who choose life, and to those who choose death, His fragrance repels them. (2 Cor. 2:14-16)
In Matthew 2:11 we read about the Magi who presented to Jesus gold, Frankincense and myrrh. Frankincense represents worship.
In Hosea 14:5-6 I found keys to what the Lord was revealing to me about the lily and the fragrance:
I will be like the dew to Israel; He will blossom like the Lily, And he will take root like the cedars of Lebanon. His shoots will sprout, And his beauty will be like the olive tree And his fragrance like the cedars of Lebanon. (Hosea 14:5-6)
Here are definitions for what I heard was important for the season we are in.
“From a biblical point of view, what does “dew” mean? Dew is used to refer to blessings, favor, prosperity, resurrection, long life, and to describe how an army covers the earth. It can also describe how an eagle covers her young or how God covers His people. We can see a well-known example in Isaac’s blessing of Jacob in Genesis 27:28: “Therefore may God give you of the dew of heaven, of the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and wine.” (The Dew of Heaven by Ronny H. Graham;Forerunner, September-October2000; http://www.cgg.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Library.sr/CT/ARTC/k/67/Dew-of-Heaven.htm)
Blossom…to break out;
(n.) A blooming period or stage of development; something lovely that gives rich promise.
(n.) To flourish and prosper. (Bible Hub)
The word Lily meant to the writers of Scripture a “pole of nature.” It was a flower that was celebrated for its attraction. Poles serve many purposes in that they hold up things, support and transport, and work well as hangers.
Trumpets were used to call the congregation and armies together. It is a metaphor for Jesus Christ…He supports the world. Jesus, as the trumpet that sounds, His is the call to redemption, to communion, to worship, and to war.
As the arch, He is the pavilion of God that protects…and the doorway, He provides access and egress to and from the presence of His Father, God. The veil of His flesh is how we pass between the two worlds, God’s and ours. John 10:7,9; Ephesians 2:18; Colossians 1:17. (Prophets Dictionary)
Cedar: symbolically refers to longevity and durability. It is a sign of the immovable, the impenetrable, and the incorruptible. (Prophets Dictionary)
Olive represents spiritual fruit of Holy Spirit…the oil of glory. His fruit symbolizes peace, joy, provision, and immortality. They represent both abundance and chastity. (Prophets Dictionary)
What does this mean? Many are breaking out from a time of preparation. The Lord is upholding His people. He has made a way through His blood for us to have access to the Father. He is calling us to come up and worship Him in Spirit and Truth. This is our place of connecting and being. Worship will release His fragrance and this will cause the harvest of souls to long for Him.
The Lord is releasing everything we need in this season. He will cover us and we will drip with His essence from His presence. We will be saturated with the dew of heaven. He is the Vav that is connecting us to our present-future. Vav is the 6th Hebrew letter in the alphabet. We are in the year 5576. Many prophets have stated it’s a season of learning to see. I see the Vav as a plumb line of stability. Vav connects your past to the future. It is connecting heaven to earth. Jesus taught us how to pray for heaven to come to earth. We will begin to understand this and access the supernatural realm through Jesus Christ. We will ‘see’ the revelation of heaven that needs to be released through our prayers and decrees on earth. When we do this, we will ‘see’ His kingdom manifest and the Lord of Glory Light lifted up.
The olive tree in the context of this word is being planted by the River of God.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not whither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.
(Psalm 1:3 NAS)
When we abide in Holy Spirit, His fruit manifests in every season. The Bride will be fruitful. His Bride will be stable and she will flourish and prosper. She is incorruptible; immovable and coming forth beautiful. Her worship brings heaven’s fragrance to earth. She will release the fruit of Holy Spirit and His oil of Glory. She knows it is what Jesus Christ has done that has made His fullness available to her. She moves in the power of this revelation. His blood has made a way for the Bride to be made ready. We must be ready and help the Bride be ready!
The day before Yom Kippur there were two eagles in the field across from my home, a male and a female. They were resting in the tree next to each other for over an hour. Then they arose into a soaring dance. The beauty was breathtaking. I felt this was key also, that from our place of rest, we arise with our Bridegroom to soar on Holy Spirit winds. Our life with Him should be as effortless as this. In His rest, abiding, rising, breathless winds causing us to soar in love.
I had a dream about the preparation of the Bride. I was the minister in the dream. I saw relationships restored. I was speaking with a leader whom I had a falling out with and God was in our midst. God was restoring. There was a new song of worship being released from those I’ve never seen lead worship who also had a falling out with this leader. The song and sound was of love and unity. In the dream I was asked to come back to the room where the Bride was getting ready. The attendants saw that I had a few wrinkles in my gown. They helped me get ready and then turned me over to the Bride. She was beautiful. I was to encourage her. I had written a love poem for her wedding, something special for her and the Bridegroom.
Pondering the Bride after a minister friend shared about her annual event, Fearless Bride, I wrote this poem in August 2015:
She waits upon her lover
Listening for His word of wisdom
Her heart fully surrendered
Not given over to any other.
In waiting her eyes do see
His glory, beauty and majesty
Heart aligned with His purpose
Ears tuned to His frequency.
She is fearless, a lover and friend
Jesus empowers her with courage
She releases His light and truth
Exhorting be faithful till the end
Basking in the Light of the Son
From glory kind intentions flow
His healing love outpouring
From her life in Him as One
In His footsteps, at His side
His faith and hope sustain her
Perfected by His love and life
She arises, Christ’s fearless Bride.
The Lord longs for His Bride. Jesus died for His Bride! He gave His Life Blood—Pure Love for His Bride! He is coming for His Pure Spotless Bride! He has provided everything for her. Everything He has and all He is. His inheritance is her inheritance. Covenant made in Blood. We are His Bride if we say ‘yes’.
Now listen, daughter, pay attention, and forget about your past.
Put behind you every attachment to the familiar,
Even those who once were close to you!
For your Royal Bridegroom is ravished by your beautiful brightness.
Bow in reverence before Him, for He is your Lord!
(Psalm 45:10-11 TPT)
We are his Bright, Shining Bride. As we honor the Blood, the oil of glory flows. This oil fills our lampstands, making us the bright shining ones whose light illuminates the darkness. Let us remember Matthew 25:1-13…The Parable of the 10 Virgins is key. We need to get our own oil…we cannot get it from another. This is the intimacy of the Bride. We must be awake and ready. The Morning Star Fragrance is Arising!
