Secrets of the Spices

Secrets of the Spices


“Say among the nations, The Lord reigns, let the heavens rejoice…let the earth be glad.” Psalms 96:10-11


This has been our declaration throughout the year. It is so wonderful to know that God is in control and that we must not keep silent. Despite of the oppression, corruption, and injustice of the leaders that abuse their positions; the Lord reigns. Despite of the crimes, wars, racial conflicts, economical and spiritual crisis; the Lord reigns. Therefore, we will rejoice and be glad. Hallelujah!

I would like to share part of a Vision and Word given by the Spirit in late November 1997, while waiting for a Word from the Lord to share at a speaking engagement. This vision revelation was given to me over a period of 2 days.

During my time of worship and meditation the Spirit began to speak to me about the holy anointing oil of Exodus 30:22-33. As I opened my Bible, my attention was drawn to the number of ingredients used to make this holy anointing oil, then to the spices used. The spirit of revelation was released within me and Eye saw a vision of some people mixing the ingredients very carefully and skillfully. Eye could sense the sweetness of the spices (not smelling them at first), and at times the sensing was so strong that it tickled my nose to the point of me literally sneezing.

The vision then changed, the holy anointing oil was completed and ready to be used. Eye saw what appeared as Aaron the first high priest of the Old Testament and a hand began to lavishly pour this holy anointing oil on him. He stood dripping and glistening with the holy anointing oil. Again, Eye could sense a strong sweet odor, this time surrounding him, as he stood silently.

The Word of the Lord began to come to me saying, “Eye will cause a sweetness of my Spirit to began to blow throughout the earth, that will overpower the stench of man’s corruption. Eye will cause them to experience and know My Sweetness. Out of the bitterness and things that would cause pain, shall sweetness come. That which has tried to eat you up, shall be food for you. Those things that came to devour you, shall be your deliverance, and the things that were sent to stop you, shall send you forth.”

My attention was drawn back to those mixing the ingredients for the holy anointing oil. And He said,


“This is the Ministry of the Apothecary, they are a prophetic people with discernment. Eye have trained them to skillfully measure out and mix the highest truth with expressions of My Spirit revealed for today, which will produce a special anointing for My Royal Priesthood, and for the planet.”

Eye could see these prophetic intercessors releasing this anointing in local assemblies, home meetings, then the world appeared before me. There was a network of light kriss-crossing the planet till Eye could see nothing, but a network of light. This light turn into oil and the planet was dripping with this holy anointing oil, one could not discern the geography of the continents and nations. The sweetness from this global anointing seem to not only affect our planet, but the universe.

The Lord began to speak to me about this planet being terminally ill and humanity also. As the network of light from the intercessor began to kriss-cross the planet, the light turned into oil, and the planet began to drip with this holy anointing oil. The stench of death and destruction was overpowered by the sweet fragrance of the oil.

He showed me that Aaron represents a people that are being anointed and prepared for the Great Change. This is the experience that Eye so often teach, preach and prophesy about; the Holy of Holies, Tabernacle, Fullness Experience. That which we have longed for, all creation has waited, and groaned for, is even closer now. As powerful as that truth is, Eye realize that it is only a minute detail in the great scheme of things.


MYSTICAL MIXTURE – SACRED SPICES


The mystical mixture of the sacred spices, olive oil and their measurements were indeed produced to make the holy anointing oil for the tabernacle and ministry of that day. The principal spices all have deeper meanings which reach into our day and beyond. As the ministry of the apothecary is released, we will experience a greater and purer expression of what we call the 5-fold ministry to mature the Body of Christ. The 5-fold ministry offices are the Sacred Spices and Olive Oil, which produces the Holy Anointing Oil, the anointing that enabled Aaron to go beyond the veil into the Holy of Holies.

The principal spices and ingredient are:


“Moreover the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, “Take thou also unto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels, And of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin: And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil.” Exodus 30:22-25


As you can see the Anointing Oil consisted of 5 principal ingredients, which represent the various phases, challenges, victories and blessings we experience. Even deeper, they reveal the Grace of the ministries given to this Cosmic Body of Christ.


1} Pure Myrrh – the PROPHET
Pure Myrrh = the Hebrew word for “pure” is “dĕrowr,” which means free flowing, liberty, running free, outflow; spontaneity. It gives the idea of and used in conjunction with a prophetic utterance.

The Hebrew word for “myrrh” is “mor’,” which means to distill as drops, bitter. This gives the idea of a word that’s been through a processed, birth out of painful and bitter experiences. (Pure Myrrh was a metaphor for freedom, spontaneous outflow; word used for Prophet)

The Pure Myrrh was obtained by making a deep incision in the tree to extract the sap. Myrrh speaks of bitterness. This is the part of your growth where circumstance in life cuts you and prunes you, so that you can produce more fruit. These are the painful bitter circumstances that come your way, things that hurt deeply.

It takes deep incisions to bring you to freedom, spontaneous praise; you become more sensitive, and gather greater insight. (Pure Myrrh has healing properties and is being used to bring healing today. A word from an anointed Prophet can give directions and revelation; it can also release healing.)

Many times the knife that God uses is family members, that person on the job, that unbelieving spouse, or that obnoxious Christian. Allow the incisions, they will be healing for many others.


2} Sweet Cinnamon – the EVANGELIST
Sweet Cinnamon = the Hebrew word for “sweet” is “beh’sem,” which means balsam, sweet odor, fragrant; sweet.

Cinnamon = the Hebrew word for “cinnamon,” is “kin·nä·mōn’,” which means the bark of a tree, to stand erect, uprightness. (This represents the office/ministry of the Evangelist.)

This spice is native of India or Ceylon. You will notice how God specifies it as Sweet. This is the opposite of the pure myrrh which was bitter.

Creator is a God of perfect balance. He will not allow you to only experience the hardships of life. He is Faithful to bring about the Sweet things too. After you have been cut, beat down by life experiences, feeling like you’re barely holding on, and can hardly walk: He will send the Sweet Cinnamon. This will cause you to stand up again (erect), you will realize that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

Sometimes we go through things and we don’t understand why, and we feel unworthy, unsaved and unclean. God is setting you up for a blessing. It may come through the most unlikely source. The thing or person that has caused you pain, can bring you pleasure. He is faithful to send an anointed Evangelist your way to stir the Spirit within you and cause you to be refreshed.


3} Calamus – the TEACHER
Sweet Calamus = the Hebrew word for “sweet” is “beh’sem,” which means balsam, sweet odor, fragrant; sweet.

The Hebrew word for “calamus” is “kä·neh’,” which means, a reed, rod, stalk, measuring rod; bone. (Calamus represents the Teacher, the Word is a reed, rod for measuring, and balancing. It’s the revealed living word that pierces, even to the marrow of the bone.)

You will also notice that this spice is also Sweet. Hallelujah!! The bigger the problem, the Greater the Blessing shall be.

A just balance is His delight. You are His delight and He will not allow you to suffer more than you can bear. For you are precious in His eyes, more to be desired that fine gold. It is the ministry/office of an anointed Teacher that can uncover that gold in you.


4} Cassia – the PASTOR
Cassia – the Hebrew word for “cassia” is “kid·dä’,” which means, a bark, to shrivel up; root word means to bow the head, contract or surrender. (Cassia represents the office/ministry of the Pastor. It is one of great humility.)

This is the spice / experience that produces brokenness. It’s Sweet Surrender, not against your will. This is where you say, “yes, yes, yes.” All day it’s yes, yes, yes. Because you have tasted the bitterness of pure myrrh, sweet cinnamon, sweet calamus; you can now trust Him. You know that he has your best interest in mind.

At this level you are now content in whatever state you’re in. None of the outward things move you, be it sweet or bitter; it’s only, “Yes Lord.” The continuous hearing and receiving of the Word from the anointed Shepherd you are assigned to, will allow you heart to remain tender.


5} Olive Oil – the APOSTLE
Oil = the Hebrew word for “oil” is “sheh’·men,” which means, fat, fatness, greasy, rich, anointing; fruitful. (The word spelled in English is similar to ‘semen’ – seed that produces fruit, fruitful)

Olive = the Hebrew word for “olive” is “zā’·yith,” which means olive, olive trees, yielding illumination. (Olive Oil represents the office/ministry of the Apostle that brings illumination to the Body of Believers, with this illumination comes the anointing and prosperity.)

Olive oil was used for food and illumination. The spices were carefully measured, compounded together and mixed with the olive oil. When you have allowed the Chief Apothecary to measure out and compound the experiences you need for your development, the anointing can be released for your life. Everyone is given a measure of faith that must be grown as the mustard seed, and mixed, mingled with others and their experiences, to produce a holy sweet aroma. This anointing brings nourishment and illumination. This anointing is for others. It becomes the anointing when it is poured out into the lives of others.


“You prepares a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: you anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.” Psalms 23:5 God brings you to a place of richness and fatness. NO LACK!!!

This is the place of Unity, Maturity, Authority and Prosperity. Psalms 133
You have been broken to the extent that you can be an able minister. You are a Priest/Pastor, because you can identify with the sins and weakness of those you minister to. You have become the broken Cassia.

You are a Prophet, because you’ve allow the knife of God to cut deeply into your life and healing has come. You have tasted the bitterness of Pure Myrrh, which has heighten your sensitivity and senses. You are filled with a passion from God.

You are a King, because you know who you are. The bitter, sweet and brokenness has produced the Apostolic authority you now have. You have been faithful over the little, now you can rule over much. Your face shines with the Olive Oil of Illumination and Joy.


PREPARED TO MINISTER BEHIND THE VEIL



On the day of Atonement, this precious oil 5-ingredient oil, produced by the apothecary was lavishly poured upon Aaron’s head. It dripped down to the hem of his garments, onto his feet. When Aaron went behind the veil, and before the Ark of the Covenant, he did not only go to represent fallen humanity. In the secrets of the spices, he took other ingredients made into incense used on that special day (Yom Kippur); the Animal Kingdom, the Plant Kingdom and Mineral Kingdom were also represented. Thus, signifying that all creation shall be restored.

Aaron was a light (witness) to the original Hebrew nation, that nation became a light (witness) to the known world, the Church (called out ones) must become a light (witness) to the whole world, and this planet shall become a light (witness) in the universe. He that has ears to hear, let him hear.

What you have read is excerpts of the vision and word from the Lord given to me over a period of two days. It was two weeks prior to this experience and revelation that the Spirit stirred me to meditate on the thought, “Secrets of the Spices.” Perhaps, later more will be shared from my 1997 two-days of being caught up in Spirit.

As the Inner Apothecary (Christ) skillfully work to blend every area of your life, that which appears positive or negative; allow patience to have her perfect work. He is measuring out and compounding each of those experiences to produce a sweet fragrance unique to the Christ in you, it can not be duplicated.

Receive this Holy Anointing with the Myrrh of Meekness, the Cinnamon of Goodness, the Calamus of Gentleness, the Cassia of Surrender/Brokenness, and the Olive Oil of Enlightenment. Become that sweet smell in the nostrils of friends, family, and those who pass you by, that have become addicted to the stench of society. May you drip and glisten with the character of Christ and manifested power of the Holy Ghost. In Yahushua’s (Jesus) Name.
