I had a wonderful experience recently of visiting Israel. More to come on that. The one thing I want to note for now is what the Holy Spirit did with me during this trip. He birth exoration in me. I suddenly found my self walking by people and the Spirit would give me an encouraging word for them. I was so amazed by how often it was happening. The response was very moving for them and for me. some people would cry and so would I. Some people rejoiced. Some were obviously contemplative. I was over whelmed with His presence. I thanked Him for the privilage of giving this encouragement to others and asked " please let it continue, I love it.
Your wondering now what does this have to do with bees! The Holy Spirit correlated it this morning to bees going from flower to flower to pollinate. Exhortation is like pollinating the kingdom of heaven to the children of God. It is heaven touching earth in God's favorite way of doing things, person to person. This is how fruit is produced from the flower. Never thought about transformation from flower to fruit before. It is as much a metamorphosis as the caterpillar to a butterfly.
My lesson here as God is looking on his church as in a flowering stage. He is in need of more bees to pollinate so there will be fruit in due season. I was impressed that hugs , smiles and words from heaven are very important in this season.
Timing means a lot in some things . If the bees show up too lake and the flowers fall to the ground there will be no fruit.
This seems like a call for the body to make like bees and touch as many flowers as possible.
