Character and Conduct
In many passages of scripture non-personal things typify the Holy
Spirit: wind, fire, rain, dew, oil, etc. But wherever the Old Testament
depicts the Holy Spirit preparing the Bride of Christ, a person
always typifies Him. We see this especially in the examples of the
life of Esther and that of Rebecca.
Esther depicts the character and conduct necessary to become the
Bride of the King. Let's look at two examples of the work of the
Holy Spirit selecting and preparing the queen to meet her king.
Read Esther 1:3-19; 2:1-4 - The seven chamberlains (eunuchs)
typify the Holy Spirit inviting; the seven princes typify the Holy
Spirit judging. We must accept the invitation of the Holy Spirit
or else come under His judgment and be set aside in favor of someone
Reader Esther 2:8-17 - Hege, the keeper of the women, typifies
the Holy Spirit, responsible for the preparation and purification
of the Bride. Half the preparation was with "myrrh" (meaning suffering)
and half with "sweet odors" (meaning joy). Hege provided Esther
with all that she needed. When she pleased Hege, she pleased the
king and became queen.
Rebecca and Receiving the Holy
Genesis 24 contains a beautiful "parable", in which Abraham typifies
God the father; Isaac typifies Jesus the Son; Rebecca typifies the
Bride of Christ, the Church; and the nameless servant typifies the
Holy Spirit. The following are nine ways in which the servant depicts
the Holy Spirit in his relationships to the Church:
- Gen. 24:2, 10: The servant ruled over all of Abraham's
- Gen. 24: 2, 3: He was responsible for choosing the
- Gen. 24:10: He came with ten gift-bearing camels.
- Gen. 24:13-21: Rebecca's response to the servant determined
her life's destiny.
- Gen. 24:25, 31: Rebecca was set apart by the gifts
she accepted from the servant.
- Gen. 24:25, 31: Rebecca and her family provided a dwelling
place for the servant and his camels.
- Gen. 24:58, 59: The servant became Rebecca's guide
to take her to the bridegroom.
- The servant was Rebecca's only source of information about
both Isaac and Abraham.
- The servant's job was finished when he delivered Rebecca to
Isaac. He asked nothing for himself.
While the nameless servant had rulership over all of his master's
possessions, they were carried on a beast of burden called a "camel".
These unusual creatures are made to walk in the desert places with
the capacity of carrying cargo at a long distance. The camels carried
the gifts that were given to the selected bride. Not only did Rebecca
give drink to the servant, but she also selflessly drew water for
all of the ten camels until were they satisfied. Rebecca and her
family even provided a "dwelling place" for the "sent ones".
It is not enough just to receive the gifts of God, but we must
also receive those who are carrying, release and impart those same
gifts. I believe that Rebecca's family was blessed as they "made
room" for the camels - those who came carrying the gifts.
A New Generation of Camels!
In recent weeks, I have sensed the Holy Spirit relentlessly speaking
to me, "The camels are coming!" It is has often been stated, "God
offends the mind to reveal the heart." So is the case today. New
camels are coming! Do not miss the gift by stumbling over the package.
Discern the ways of God, seek wisdom and respond in faith by creating
a dwelling place for the camels that are carriers of His presence.
A new generation of camels is coming. They might look different.
They might even act somewhat different. Their approach and style
might even appear to be "out of the box." The packages they are
carrying might even be in a different sort of wrapper! But know
this, a fresh breed of gift laden camels are being released from
the throne of God to beatify the body of Christ to prepare her to
be presented to her king. The camels are coming. To receive His
gifts - receive His camels.
Prayer Points: Receiving the Gifts
to Beautify the Bride!
Use the following simple prayer points as a tool of praying over
your own life, your family, congregation, the greater expression
of the church in your city/region, and for the Body of Christ at
- Pray according to Ephesians 5:26, 27 that the Bride would
be pure and holy full of the glory of God as a most beautiful
present for His only Son.
- Pray according to 1 Corinthians 14:1 that we pursue love while
at the same time earnestly desire the spiritual gifts.
- Prayer according to the Book of Esther, that we embrace our
days of preparation and receive the beauty treatments needed to
be presented before the King.
- Pray that we, the bride of Christ, will respond like Rebecca
in selfless acts of faith, worship and humility and thus draw
the servants' attention.
- Let's respond like Rebecca's family and build a dwelling place
for the Holy Spirit.
- Let's call forth the camels of God to come forth bearing the
gifts needed to equip and adorn the bride for the Son.
- Let us cry out to the Lord for new dread champions of the
faith to arise. Pray that we discern these anointed vessels and
back them as they come forth.
- Activate your own faith to receive a fresh impartation of
the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in your own life and thus be empowered
in a new manner.
