On Monday, November 21st just before retiring for the night, I sent David White a text asking to meet with him on Friday. David pastors the MorningStar church “The Gathering” at West Meadows in Moravian Falls. I was planning to visit Bob’s grave site Friday and place winter flowers. Bob’s grave is very near David’s church.
Early one morning, in a vision, I saw a beautiful single red rose. It was vibrant and fragrant – full of love and life. Then the voice of God woke me saying, “It’s time for the Rose of Sharon to Bloom!”
It startled me and I jumped out of bed, grabbed my phone and went downstairs. I knew this was one of Bob’s old prophecies and I needed to find it. Honest, the first time I heard it was at Bob’s memorial service. So I knew this is a NOW word. I searched the internet and found Mike Bickle’s testimony about this prophecy. Mike brought it at a MorningStar conference in 2014 after Bob’s passing.
The Rose of Sharon Prophecy from 1983 as told by Mike Bickle in 2014:
In 1983 Bob Jones had a prophecy called the Rose of Sharon. In the vision Bob saw his tombstone and it had his name on it. Out of the grave rose a beautiful fragrant flower. Its fragrance was the beauty of God. He said that life would come forth after his death and the Body would operate in the first commandment.
He gave this prophecy to Mike Bickle and gave him the understanding. He told Mike that the Rose of Sharon is the Body of Christ in Song of Solomon 2:1, “I am the rose of Sharon, And the lily of the valleys.”
The Lord made it clear to Bob that in the generation when He returns, He’s going to restore the first commandment to first place in the Body of Christ worldwide. Bob said that God would restore and establish the first commandment as first place.
Then in 1988, Bob Jones heard the audible voice of God telling him to call Mike Bickle. At that moment Mike had just read Song of Solomon 8:6, “Set me as a seal upon your heart.” Bob told Mike that God is going to release the anointing of Song of Solomon on the Body of Christ worldwide before He comes. It will be in a global way and the whole Body shall say yes to it.
Song of Solomon 8:6 is the anointing to live in the first commandment. The Holy Spirit will restore and establish the first commandment worldwide to the weak and broken people. He’ll give us the anointing to walk this out if we want to. It takes the power of God to love God. It is bigger than us.
The Fire of Love
Bob said that Song of Solomon 8:6 is the fire of love. It is the Rose of Sharon from 1983. Bob said that his life was about cultivating that response – love. But it won’t come to fullness; the rose won’t blossom until after my death. But his (Bob’s) ministry is to contribute to this.
In Deuteronomy 6, the first commandment is given to Moses, to love God first – body, soul and mind. Then in Matthew 22:37-38 Jesus quotes God’s words to Moses. But Jesus adds the interpretation and elaboration. Jesus said the highest priority is to love God. Bob’s ministry was to strengthen and cultivate that response to God. (End of Mike’s testimony).
Angels Sent to Act On the Word Released
David White responded to my text that he was available to meet on Friday. I arrived Friday and placed winter green wreath on Bob’s grave. Then I prayed and waited on the Lord. Facing the headstone, I released the Song of Solomon 8:6 prophecy into the air. As I did this the wind really kicked up. I knew this was angelic activity. I felt as if they were there on assignment to act on the word at once.
Later David and I met and I shared with him about the Rose of Sharon. We discussed the importance and timing of this word and the return of God’s glory. 2017 is an important year and a culmination of forty and fifty year cycles coming to pass. David suggested placing a single red rose on Bob’s grave representing the Rose of Sharon. It would be like what I saw in my vision earlier in the week. Awesome!
Well on Saturday, I couldn’t find just one red rose so I bought a dozen. When I returned to Bob’s grave, I felt the Lord impressing on me to place the whole dozen. Yes, of course; I understood it now as I began to decree the word. It was to bring the Body of Christ and the government of God into alignment with each other. Together they will usher in the harvest in harmony by walking in Song of Solomon 8:6 – the fiery passion of God.
Bob was sent back from death in 1975 with the message to the Body of Christ: “Did you learn to love?” His ministry was to cultivate and strengthen the Body in the word – Love! I believe the Body of Christ is going to experience the fiery passion of God’s love and power of His weighty glory manifest beginning this year. Let God set a seal of fire on your heart as the Rose of Sharon blooms in this season. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)
