Wings, Blossoms, Pomegranates Blooming!

July 9, 2009

This image linking wings with blossoms and the Lord’s word being sent and not returning void is very similar to one the Lord gave me in april from Song 7:12.

Arise Beautiful One, My Fair One

At first, I thought the wings were eagle’s wings. Wings being spread out while waiting on the Lord to be ’saturated’ with His presence.

I thought it was the eagle from Isaiah 40 — anticipating the wind to ’soar’ BUT it was the dove!!! The image of the bride — budding, blooming spreading her wings in anticipation of the union with the bridegroom!

The Beloved to Her Lover:
Song 7:12 Let us rise early and go to the vineyards; Let us see whether the vine has *budded{flourished} and its blossoms have opened, and
whether the pomegranates have bloomed. There I will give you my love.

From NetBible Song 7:12
*flourished – parach [06524]
a primitive root; to break forth as a bud, i.e. bloom;
generally, to spread; specifically, to fly (as extending the
; figuratively, to flourish:-X abroad, X abundantly,
blossom, break forth (out), bud, flourish, make fly, grow,
spread, spring (up).

This time of the bride blossoming and spreading her wings is also a time when the pomegranates are blooming!

From Wikipedia

the name “pomegranate” derives from Latin pomum (”apple”) and granatus (”seeded”) — the apple of many seeds. Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness, because it is said to have 613 seeds which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot or commandments of the Torah. So the pomegranate has many seeds — seeds of truth!

Song 7:12 puts these images together! The vine blossoming — spreading wings and the pomegranates blooming — seed of truth — arising –being sent!!! 🙂

Its here in the midst of these spreading wings and seeds of truth being sent {and received} that the Bridegroom promises to give His love — a beautiful union with His Bride….

Song 2:13   The fig tree has ripened its figs, and the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance. ‘Arise, my darling{love}, my beautiful{fair} one, and come away!’

Blossom- Spread Your Wings
