The Bitterness of Myrrh


All night I have been hearing the word, MYRRH!

I have been smelling this odor, it seems for days, and the Spirit of The LORD kept saying the men and women of God called for this hour will have the aroma of myrrh upon them.

Myrrh is identified with the Hebrew word מוֹר, môr, more, which means distilled and comes from the root word Marar which means bitterness.

Myrrh is symbolic of bitterness, suffering, affliction.

In this hour, the vessels coming forth will understand what it means to suffer in bitter affliction.  They will be able to identify with what Jesus went through, because they would have experienced the agony of rejection hatred pain.

They will be able to identify with suffering in obedience as they deny their will and follow Jesus.

There is an aroma in the atmosphere of those called to the Kingdom in this hour, that identifies them with Jesus.  Their life exemplifies the lifestyle of Christ.  They understand the will of God for their life requires them to go through hard affliction and much suffering.

They know they have to deal with being persecuted by those they love those they are called to help.  They know it’s mandated for them to go through their own crucifixion, so that they can die to themselves.

Dying to themselves, gives them the ability to be able to go through the pain and agony that is connected to their destiny and purpose without allowing it to cause them to abort their assignment or to quit obeying God.

We have to be able to continue to go forth and do what we are called to do, without allowing anything to distract us or interfere with our obedience.  Learning how to suffer in silence, without murmuring and complaining, is something we all need to learn.

How to go through with a determination to complete our ordained purpose, is the goal we all need to achieve.  I know it can be hard sometimes, because of the hard trials of persecution and affliction that are connected to our lives.  But if we can remember that whatever we go through, is connected to the will of God for us, we will learn how to bear the shame and weigh of our assignment and count it all joy that we have been chosen to partake of the suffering associated with our LORD & Savior Jesus Christ!
