So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. (Ps. 90:12)
In a vision a few days ago, a woman’s hand was shown. On her wedding finger appeared an engagement ring with a beautiful diamond. The wedding band was encrusted also with more beautiful diamonds. It was apparent that the diamonds were of extremely high quality because they emitted a beautiful white Light. But then I understood that the Light had more meaning…
The engagement ring and marriage band are symbolic of the Bride of Christ, who is the Light of the world. Without doubt, they represent the heavenly Groom’s commitment to His Wife and the Wife’s commitment to Her Husband. And the Groom has picked one of the most beautiful of stones: a Diamond. A gem known to be one of, if not, the strongest stone on earth with a Mohs rating of 10!
The number 10 is mentioned 242 times in the Bible, and is associated with: authority, completeness of order and responsibility. It is a number associated with the attraction of smaller parts that combine to create something whole. In Judaism, some rabbis define the number 10 as something holy enough in its entirety that whatever GOD creates becomes the dwelling place for His Presence or His Glory.
In a nutshell, the Groom has found a resting place in His Bride: that is to say, His faithful and redeemed Believers. In turn, He blesses them/Her with honor and the richness of His glory. And through and in Him, the Bride has also found a heavenly treasure: the Spirit of Wisdom! Can it be anything less considering who this Bride is married to?! (smile) My goodness!
Happy is the man who finds wisdom. the man who attains understanding. her value in trade is better than silver. Her yield, greater than gold. She is more precious than rubies; all of your goods cannot equal her. In her right hand is length of days. In her left, riches and honor. her ways are pleasant ways. And all her paths, peaceful. She is a tree of life to those who grasp her. And whoever holds on to her is happy. (Prov. 3:13-18) (The Jewish Study Bible)
Happy is the man who finds wisdom. And the man who gains understanding. For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver. And her gain than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies. And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her. Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her. And happy are all who retain her. (Prov. 3:13-18) (nkjv)
