“Set me as a seal upon your heart,
As a seal upon your arm;
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy as cruel as the grave;
Its flames are flames of fire,
A most vehement flame…
Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor can the floods drown it.
If a man would give for love
All the wealth of his house,
It would be utterly despised” (SS8:6, 7)
This is the voice of the Bride… Love has its own sound, its own song, its own fragrance, its own way and its own price. Money cannot buy it. Blood is its price. The Blood of the Prince of peace was shed for love to live. Love is jealous. El Qanna, the Jealous God, will fight to keep your love alive and pure. Love is strong. Love never fails. Love draws near. Love changes the hearts. The Spirit and the Bride is calling…Come… What will the Lover say in response to her longing?
“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’” (Rev 3:19-22)
This is the Love of the Lover. It is the voice of the Lord Jesus Christ, calling from the other side of the Cross, the side of joy and victory. The Blood was shed. Death has died. The grave has been disappointed. This is the season of love… He who loves rebukes and chastens. The Lover is the Teacher. He disciplines His students, His children, so that they may know how to love better. Many tears will stain your face and many disappointments will hurt your heart before you learn how to receive and give love in return. It takes a long time before you are able to appreciate true love. To love is not easy. But it is worth it! Dead men do not love. He who loves is alive!
Love calls you to come inside the holy place. Love offers you a dinner of joyful eternal blessings and a royal seat of power. Are you afraid to open the door? Are you afraid at what the Lover might say or do? If you hear His voice, then please open the door! You shall have no peace until you open and worship the Lord at His feet, face to face, no interruption and no separation. God is calling you to be with Him, to do ministry, to intercession…God is calling you to separate from the world, to worship Him alone in the beauty of His holiness. Even so come Lord Jesus…
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love….
Sweet Holy Spirit…
I’m in love!
