INTIMACY WITH ME – IS YOUR SAFEST PLACE TO BE
“Who is this that cometh out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all powders of the merchant? Behold his bed, which is Solomon’s; threescore valiant men are about it, of the valiant of Israel. They all hold swords, being expert in war: every man hath his sword upon his thigh because of fear in the night,” Song of Solomon 3:6-8.
The Lord spoke to me while I was preparing to go to Ohio the other day through this passage and said “This is a type of My protection over those who know Me intimately. WHEREVER THE SECRET PLACE IS….. THERE YOU WILL FIND MY WARRIOR ANGELS FOR THEY PROTECT THOSE WHO ABIDE UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY!”
“You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon, who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai, who say to Adonai, “My refuge! My fortress! My God, in whom I trust!” Psalm 91:1-2 (CJB)
INTIMACY GIVES ACCESS
Intimacy always gives us access to His “Secret Service.” When we elect a President here in the States, His wife, because she is His wife, has access to the Secret Service because of her intimate relationship with Him. She is the one who “knows him.” She is the one who knows intimate details about who He really is, They are one, so because of this, she has been given the same protection that he receives. In the same way, those who Know Him (The Lord) Have Angels that encamp round about them.
“For you have made Adonai, the Most High,who is my refuge, your dwelling-place. No disaster will happen to you,no calamity will come near your tent; for he will order his angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go. They will carry you in their hands, so that you won’t trip on a stone,” Psalms:91:9-12 (CJB).
DAVID UNDERSTOOD INTIMACY
David understood intimacy. He was the sweet Psalmist who learned that God would fight for you as he worshiped God for hours on end as a Shepherd boy. He knew that God sent angels to help him slay the lion and the bear! This emboldened Him to slay the giant Goliath when all of the other so called soldiers were shaking in their boots. David understood that as he worshiped the Lover of his soul that he had a whole battalion of Angels fighting with him!
This is why he established the Tabernacle of David! He did this because he knew that this 24/7 worship and intimacy would bring the Lord Of Hosts (Armies Of Angels) onto the scene and that would cause them to win every battle that their enemies would wage against them!
Isaiah prophesied in Isaiah 30:31-32 “For Adonai’s voice will terrify Ashur, as with his scepter he strikes them down. Every sweep of the punishing rod that Adonai imposes on him will be to tambourines and lyres, as he brandishes his arm against them in battle.”
YOU SEE AT THE SOUND OF YOUR ADORATION AND PRAISE, HE WILL COME WITH SWINGING ARMS! God Loves His lovers and I see Him watching you as you set yourself in His presence, through your intimate worship, whistling for His Angels! I hear Him, commanding His Angels charge over you as You declare who He is to you!
I HEAR HIM SAYING, “THAT IS THE OBJECT OF MY LOVE, GO FORTH AND SURROUND HER WITH PROTECTION!”
“Adonai has established his throne in heaven; his kingly power rules everything. Bless Adonai, you angels of his, you mighty warriors who obey his word, who carry out his orders! Bless Adonai, all his troops, who serve him and do what he wants!” Psalms 103:19-21 (CJB)
