I am excited about today’s message. Last week, a pitcher of filtered water was shown hovering in the air. It was as though invisible hands held the pitcher and poured water on top of a kitchen counter and directly underneath a window. Then another vision was shown to confirm the first one. A cupboard door opened revealing a ball of balm or ointment.
The interpretation was further confirmed this weekend in a way that only the Holy Spirit can reveal. In the mouths of two or three witnesses, the Lord reveals a thing! Clearly, there was no way to drink the water on the counter except that it be lapped. Without doubt this vision related to the story of Gideon and his army.
In millenia past on a mount called Gilead, GOD instructed Gideon that only men who lapped water, instead of drinking it by other means, would be selected to battle the enemy.
“But the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many; bring them down to the water, and I will test them for you there. Then it will be, that of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ the same shall go with you; and of whomever I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ the same shall not go.” So he brought the people down to the water. And the Lord said to Gideon, “Everyone who laps from the water with his tongue, as a dog laps, you shall set apart by himself; likewise everyone who gets down on his knees to drink.” And the number of those who lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, was three hundred men; but all the rest of the people got down on their knees to drink water. Then the Lord said to Gideon, “By the three hundred men who lapped I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand. Let all the other people go, every man to his place.” So the people took provisions and their trumpets in their hands. And he sent away all the rest of Israel, every man to his tent, and retained those three hundred men.” (Judges 7:3:8)
The men who knelt with their heads bowed down to drink water with their cupped hands were much too preoccupied to see or sense the enemy approaching. But those who lapped the water were able to do so because their heads were kept high enough to see who or what was coming (i.e. the window). They remained in a complete and steady state of alertness and readiness.
The next vision speaks of the balm of Gilead. The balm was a fragrant ointment or preparation which was composed of botanicals that helped to heal cuts. But now according to the tenets of the New Covenant, this healing preparation is symbolic of the medicinal word which contains the fragrant ingredients of the complete healing plan of redemption through Jesus Christ. A perfect plan pharmaceutically compounded by the Great Physician Himself!
Altogether the two visions symbolize that the LORD is selecting a mighty army of latter day warriors! It is an unusual army composed of devout, faithful and alerted men and women who will battle in an inordinate way. They will be able to “see” and “discern”approaching enemies from up close and from far away. They will be armed with the knowledge of the Word, their GOD-given gifts and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. They will courageously battle but they will take no prisoners! Instead they will help them heal with the aromatic New Covenant balm that is at their disposal. Because they have been healed by it, they greatly recognize its efficacy. They are Holy-Spirit filled and inspired! They can – and will – talk the talk because they have walked the walk! They still are! And this will be their testimony! Many will believe; many more will not. Tragically, those who fail to refuse GOD’s great plan of redemption will have lost a herculean opportunity to be saved. They will remain spiritually sick and will succumb to the penalty of sin: death.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rom. 6:23)
Yes Prophet Jeremiah! There is balm available. Absolutely! It is available through the great Physician, Jesus Christ, and His medical entourage of witnesses and warriors! And it will help heal those who are spiritually, mentally and physically ill! (By no small coincidence, the name Gilead means Hill of Testimony or Mount of Witness.)
“Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the Lord in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities? The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?” (Jeremiah 8:18:22)
“And hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mk.2:17)
I am hearing a word of confirmation and of accuracy on this message! Praise the LORD and thank you Jesus!
