The Aroma Of A King

Well, it appears that the Holy Spirit is moving within certain members of this community in reference to our King and Saviour.

So I must share both. Same story with different thoughts. I love how the Holy Spirit does that😊

Laura, thank for this wonderful post and opening my eyes to see a new perspective!!

All The Shoes I Wear

In the ancient middle east, the majesty of a king was expressed by more than merely his robes and adornment, but also by his royal aroma.

Instead of being crowned during a coronation,  Hebrew Kings were annointed with a sacred oil, heavily perfumed with the most expensive spices and only used for consecrating objects in the temple and anointing priests and kings.  It’s aroma acted as an invisible crown, bestowing an aura of holiness on it’s recipients.

Even after their anointing, kings would perfume their robes with precious oils so that during royal processions,  the fragrance of the expensive oils would inform the crowd that a king was passing by.

King David’s Wedding  Psalm 45:7-8.             King Solomon  Song of Songs 3:6-7.

The word Messiah in Hebrew is Mashiach which literally means “The Annointed One”.  (Christos or Christ is the Greek equivalent.)  Therefore the word Messiah…

I choose to blame him less

Jessika’s words touched me just now. Then I just kept reading several posts of hers. She is authentic, open and honest. Go check out her blog please. I promise you will come away blessed as there are posts for everyone. Certain words and phrases brought to mind several of you that could relate in her posts. This just happened to be the one that struck a cord in me with her compassionate heart!

It’s been 3 years since he confessed hints of his infidelity over breakfast.

Initially, I blamed him.

I blamed his wandering eye.

I blamed his callous disregard.

I blamed his all-encompassing love for himself.

And initially, I blamed his adultery for the ultimate destruction of our marriage.

But now, years later, my heart has not only forgiven,

my heart has softened allowing my eyes to see things in a new light.

Now, I blame him less.

And instead, I blame our broken world more.

I blame the ever-cunning, always-persistent enemy more.

Matthew 5:28 tells us, “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

Anyone. Who. Looks. At. A. Woman. Lustfully.

Not anyone who flirts.

Not anyone who touches.

Not anyone who engages in anything.

No.

Slow down.

Throw it in reverse.

Anyone who so even LOOKS at…

HOW PORN DISTORTED MY VIEW OF SEX

My brother in Christ has penned a thought provoking post guys. In here is a answer to his wife’s question that honestly threw me for a loop. Well, his answer didn’t..it was the fact that he answered. Most men would not have done so.

I love this brother. He has helped so much in ministering to porn/sex addicts. Not only is he an administrator on my Facebook page Resurrecting The Redeemed From Porn Addiction and it’s associated groups…he has written a book on his own porn struggle and coming open about it. The link to his book is at the bottom of his post.

Jesus Is The Best

Yesterday, at a friend’s recommendation, I read a blog post where a loving, Christian wife encouraged others to perform oral sex on their husbands.  (She provided more details than I will include here, as I plan to keep this rated PG-13 or below.)

I found it interesting that right off the bat she stated that many husbands have watched porn where men degrade women and use women for their own self-gratification.  She also mentioned how a husband might want his wife to do something to recreate a scene from porn.

This took my mind back to where I was several years ago when I was caught up in the compulsive cycle of porn.  My wife knew nothing about my addiction.  I can remember buying certain kinds of clothing for her to wear when we were having sexual relations, because I had seen and been aroused by it in porn.

Years…
