MYRRH - CRUCIFIED LIFE
Myrrh comes from the word, marar, meaning to be grieved, make bitter, trickle, or to drop (as in distillation). Myrrh is fragrant and sweet to the smell, but very bitter to the taste. Here we have before us, a prophetic picture of the cross, and the death of Christ. In the sweetest sacrifice ever made for mankind, Yeshua spread forth His arms and was nailed to the cross. He took the bitter cup and drank to its dregs the vileness of all our sins.
Our portion in this anointing is in uniting with Christ in His cross. If our true desire is to be like Yeshua, we must open wide and allow the Holy Spirit to search us, showing us areas in our lives that need crucifixion. This is a grievous and bitter process at times, but with it comes the promise of the ages-Christ in us, the hope of glory!!
