Better Than Wine

Song of Songs 1:2
Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth-
For your love is better than wine.

Intimacy with God
There is no revelation that is more needed than to know how great the Father’s love and passion is for us. When we are rooted and grounded in His love we can have confidence in all things and know that our hearts are beating with the very heart of the Father. In this way everything that is expressed in us and through us will be a reflection of Him.

His Fragrance
Where intimacy abounds is where fruit will abound. His love is better than wine! The wine speaks of the sweet fruit of intimacy and the romance relationship with God. When our hearts are bound up in His love the sweetness of the fragrance of Jesus is released through us. When that life and love of God is permeating us through that deep intimacy we can overcome in the difficult tests and times in our lives and come out smelling real good to God! The fruit of our intimacy with Him abounds so that when we are trampled on so the grapes of our relationship are crushed bringing forth more wine with a fragrance that is irresistible! His love and passion in us increases as time rolls along and we find ourselves in that intoxicating relationship with Him where nothing else satisfies.

Deeper Measures
The Lord is knocking on the door of our hearts wanting to reveal deeper measures of His life and love. He comes to each of our houses knocking and waiting until we open the door to let Him come in. Wine speaks of a special occasions. So the Lord wants our lives to be loaded with these special times with His people. It is not enough to have casual prayer times. There is a place of removing the distractions and pressing into His courts. There is a pressing out of the things of this world and a pressing into the things of His world. In this world there will be other options. We need to choose the “Throne Room Option”. God is calling us into the inner courts of His Presence. The time is now to move from the outer courts of the natural mind where distractions occur and to take on a new fresh passion for the Holiest of All where “holy obsession” occurs! Jesus died and rose so that the veil that prevented us from entering into the Holy of Holies would be rent asunder and we may have unlimited access to the courts of His Majesty!

Hebrews 10:19-22
Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

Enter in to that Holiest Place where the wine of His Presence waits for you to drink – Be intoxicated with the wine of His love!
