Beloved. There is no spot in you. The world may have the smell of death upon it, but you bring My fragrance of Life everywhere you go and to everyone you touch.
My aroma lingers upon you and is a sweet reminder of their Savior. It is the distinctive sweet smell of the Holy Spirit of God bearing fruit in your life. Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
For you, Dear One, live by the Grace of God. You have been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb. You are a rich bouquet in the Hand of your God. I AM leading you in a triumphal procession and I shall make known through you the fragrance of the knowledge of their God and Savior in every place.
I did not choose angels or cherubim to contain My Glory, but I have chosen you, My Beloved Bride, to fill to overflowing with My Glorious fragrance. For the winter is now past and My Flowers have appeared in My land, yielding their sweet smell. Arise, My Love, My beautiful one and come away.
As a rose among thorns, so are you a sweet savor among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
