"Set me as a seal upon your heart, As a seal upon your arm;
For love is as strong as death, Jealousy as cruel as the grave,
Its flames are flames of fire, A most vehement flame."
Song of Solomon 8:6
The world has just experienced a complete solar eclipse on Monday the 21 August 2017. This was at the very begining of the 40 days of repentance, just before the opening of the Gates of heaven, (Revelation 4), or the Courts of Heaven, at the Jewish New Year (Rosh HaShanah). At some point in this eclipse the circle around the moon was observed by the naked eye in what is called the “diamond phase” where the ring looks like a literal diamond engagement ring.
The bible speaks about the Holy Spirit being the seal of our salvation - which also translates to the "pledge", the "earnest", very much like the promise of an engagement ring. The Bride Groom-to-be promises (pledges) to provide the home and the rest (the needed provision for the Bride) by contracting to be betrothed or engaged.
"I will betroth you to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and justice, in lovingkindness and mercy."
I believe that in this present season of returning to the Lord (teshuvah), that the Lord is calling a devoted people, His own bridal company. This company are those who are ready to make a further and even deeper commitment to Himself and to one another. These are those who are making themselves ready and are preparing for their Bride Groom's coming - precisely as the world prepares to go into judgement and catastrophe. This is the company who are choosing to answer the decree of the Lord: I will betroth you to Me forever...
While some people are only focusing on the dark days ahead, the disasters about to happen, the economy about to collapse, the banking systems about to fail. For His Beloved Bride, those that only have eyes for Him, they are also focused - but their focus is like the dove in the book of the Songs of Solomon, on Him and on Him alone. Looking into the Face of Jesus where the light is.
