“EL ROI, the God who sees you, Manna, Faith, Feathers, and Favor!”
I was outside cleaning my dog’s little pool today, and floating on top of all the muddy water was a perfectly clean white feather. “Hmmm…. I am going to tuck that away in my mind,” I said.
Then, when I came in, I asked The LORD what I should write on today, He said, “Go grab your Bible.”
As I got up, the time was 5:55 on my phone. Things that make you go, “hmmm.” LOL. So as I got my Bible and I grabbed my book on Biblical Symbols also.
I want you to know how some of these Words come. Sometimes, in so many funny and amazing ways. Our Father has a sense of humor. He is always speaking to us, His Beloved.
So I looked up Five first. I think many of us know Five is the number of Grace, but not only Grace, but also Abundant Favor, Redemption, and even multi-tasking, as in the Five-Fold Ministry.
Next was Feathers, which mean, Covering, Protection, Trust, the Holy Spirit, Glory, Evidence of Angels!
Wow! White is Righteousness, Pure, Holy Garments, Cleaned, Washed, Purified, Angel, Worthy, Glory, Light. Oh, and one last thing.
Then I turned randomly in my Bible, and I had written the word Grace on the page with a star probably many years ago.
This is the verse that is “starred” by Grace 😃
“But unto every one of us is given Grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore He says, “When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.” Ephesians 4:7-8.
So as I pondered all of this, I had a Vision of White Feathers falling from heaven. Like snow, they covered the earth and The Bride of Christ.
White feathers were falling from heaven as a sign that her God is with her. He is the God who sees her, El Roi.
They were a sign that her Guardian Angels were near. Even when she wasn’t thinking about Him, and even when she least expected it, Her Bridegroom King sent her signs that He was thinking about her and she was hidden under His Wings. Isn’t that comforting?
Though we walk in this fallen world, with “mud and slime” all around us, it will not touch us and we will always walk in God’s Favor and Grace and Abundance and under our God’s protection.
I even “Googled” the words, “Feathers and favor” just to see what would come up, and do you know that “Wedding Favors,” made with feathers, was the very first thing. Only God!
“Beloved, you are the Redeemed of The LORD, the Pure Bride of Christ without spot or wrinkle.
It is by Grace you have been saved through Faith, and not of works lest any should boast.
As a Bridegroom always protects and cherishes His Bride, so I protect and cherish you. I give My Angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways.
You dwell under the Shadow of My Wings.
Surely, I bless the Righteous; I surround you with My Favor as a Shield. No harm shall come nigh your dwelling.
Though a thousand fall at your right side and ten thousand at your left, it will not come near you. For I AM with you always.
I AM the God who sees you. Even when you are not thinking of Me, I think of you, Beloved. How vast is the sum of them! If you should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
I will speak to you in ways beyond what you can ask or think or imagine. I will be the Wall of Fire around you and the Glory in your midst.
I AM He who sets a table in the presence of your enemy. I AM He who brings Streams into the desert and Rivers in the wilderness.
I AM nearer than the air you breathe. I AM your Savior, your Bridegroom King, your Abba Father.
I have blessed you with Grace upon Grace. There is no end to My Supply, Dear One. Grace upon multiplied Grace.
My Grace is sufficient for you for My Strength is made perfect in your weakness. You are covered, My Bride. You rest under My Shade.
Look up, Beloved, Look to the Heavens for your provision. AM sending Manna from Heaven, supernatural provision for such a time as this!”
MANNA : Strong’s Hebrew 3131: – literally, “What is it?” – the question asked by the wandering Israelites in the OT when God gave them manna (divinely-sent bread wafers) (see Numbers 11:6). 3131 /mánna (“necessary provisions”) The miraculous “bread of heaven” ( Psalm 78:24 ) that God provided for the Israelites while he led them through the Red Sea on dry ground and into the Wilderness of Sinai (Exodus 16) As the first Redeemer caused the manna to fall from heaven, even so shall the second Redeemer cause the manna to fall’ (The Gospel of John, London, 1928, pp 142-43; cf. Ecclesiastes Rabbah 1.9).
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who overcomes, I will give the HIDDEN MANNA. I will also give him a white stone inscribed with a new name, known only to the one who receives it.” Revelation 2:17.
EL ROI : The Hebrew name for God meaning the “God who sees me.” We discover this name of God in Genesis 16:14-15. We meet Hagar, an Egyptian slave, who encountered God in the desert and addressed Him as El-Roi, “the God who sees me.” El Roi: The God Who Sees Me.
“Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to The LORD, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” So that well was named Beer-lahai-roi (which means “well of the Living One who sees me”). It can still be found between Kadesh and Bered.” Genesis 16:13-14.
“Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.” Psalm 5:12.
“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You.” Psalm 139:17-18.
“Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my Beloved among the young men. I delight to sit in His Shade, and His fruit is sweet to my taste. He has brought me to the house of wine, and his banner over me is love.” Song of Solomon 2:3-4.
