On June 20, 2019, I was resting in bed when I heard the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart the phrase, "Stairways of Dove". I was not sure exactly what that meant, so I wrote it down and asked the Lord for the explanation of what it meant. I sensed it meant that we can soar as high with the Holy Spirit as we want to go and we can go as deep as we want in intimacy with the Holy Spirit.
A little while after that, I was reading in The Passion Translation's Song of Songs 2:14, which states, "For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open rock. It was I who took you and hid you up high in the secret stairway of the sky." The footnotes for this Scripture states, "This speaks of the wounded side of Jesus, our Rock where we hide and rest. When Moses asked God to see his glory, God hid Moses in the cleft of the rock. See Ex. 33:22."
After that, I was also reminded of that same translation of the Bible in John 1:51, which states, "I prophesy to you eternal truth: From now on you will see an open heaven and gaze upon the Son of Man like a stairway reaching into the sky with the messengers of God climbing up and down upon Him!”
So, we are the dove of Jesus and the wounded side of Jesus, our Rock, is our secret hiding place...and we can rest in Him and gaze upon Him like a stairway! May the deep revelation of that help us cultivate deeper intimacy with Him...and help us to continue to build a legacy of intimacy!
