The Revelation of the Beloved

Jul 27, 2006,Isabel Allum

Throughout the years I have had many visitations and all have been amazing, however, this is the most powerful and most impacting one I have ever had. At the end of the spring of this year, I had a visitation the "Beloved". Remember Him, from the Songs of Solomon? It was amazing. Many many years ago, about 20 years ago, I met the Beloved and it was one of the most impacting experiences of my life. He used to come and visit me regularly for about a year or more. It was amazing!!! Then it stopped but He told me why it would stop. Then recently I was soaking in my living-room and He came. Oh I can't even explain what it was like. He is so amazing and incredible!!! He is altogether lovely and takes the splendour away from everything. One look at Him and everything else in life pales in comparison. One glance at Him and one is crazy "in-love" forever. One glance from Him and you become so lovesick for Him that it hurts to have to wait for his return... for the one who is ALTOGETHER BEAUTIFUL!!!

He came back and poured his love on me again as He used to back them... He set my heart on fire in a way I can't explain. He came for two reasons: One was to encourage me on a personal decision I made for Him and his Kingdom, and the second reason was to tell me that, "He is about to be revealed to the Bride". The Bride has been in preparation for Him but she has never seen Him as He is. A few on earth have had glimpses of Him, but very soon there will be a corporate revelation of Him but only to the Bride, not to the church. To the Bride, who is among the church. To the five wise virgins who have chosen to keep the oil of relationship and intimacy for their lamps. Very soon, people will start talking about meeting the Beloved and they will be awe struck and lovesick for Him, in a way that is beyond what can be imagined. Others will notice the difference and will literally say, "Who is that you talk about?" He is coming to meet the "five wise virgins", his precious Bride. He is their/our reward and very soon the door will open-up and He, the Beloved, will be revealed as He is to those who seek after Him and his heart in intimacy and not after the "experiences they can get". He said, "the wedding is near, but I will be revealed to Bride before it takes place". Then He said, "Go and awaken the people and their hearts because there is still time to "buy the oil" and become the Bride. The time is short, very short, but there is still time". Many have taken for granted that being in the church makes them the Bride but it is not so, the ten virgins were together, but only 5 met the Bridegroom. The Beloved is already walking in our mist and those who have the oil of intimacy in their lamps will see Him.

Then a week later week Ivan and I were talking about Him as Ivan too has received the same revelation (at the same time but separately), and his presence just came as we shared about Him. It came a point that it felt so intense and we needed to just be with Him. Ivan left to go upstairs and I went to the kitchen. At that moment He came to visit me again, and it was more powerful than the time before. Suddenly, I felt his presence and his love, then I could feel his eyes looking at me, and then I saw Him. He was surrounded by glory and was stunning. As I looked at Him I heard a voice that said, "Isabel, what does He look like? Can you describe Him? I looked at Him and tried to find the words to describe Him and then realized that "He is indescribable". I realized that He couldn't be described by physical appearance because He is so much more than that. (I remember his eyes, his hair, his built but it is who He is, that impacted me). I tried to remember how the girl described Him in the book of Solomon, and at that moment, I realized that He was/is different to me. He is different to all who meet Him. It is so personal and intimate that it cannot be explained in a simple manner. I heard myself say, "his eyes are like the depth of the seven seas and carry the depth and calmness of the deepest ocean". "His body is like the tallest oak tree in the fields, so strong that anyone can lean on it and find refuge in it. His arms as like the longest and fullest branches that spread wide in the fields giving shade and rest to all. At that moment for the first time in my life I understood the book of the Songs of Solomon and I knew exactly why she described Him as she did. Now I read that book with such a different revelation and I know exactly "who she is talking about".

As I tried to find a way to describe Him, He raptured my heart. I felt this intensity of Him in my heart as if a hand had gone in and grabbed my heart, and I literally lost my breath and had to gasp for air, then I realized who and what He really is, and I knew that He is the all in all. I knew at that moment that I needed Him more than the air to breath. He is the air I breathe. He is the life I live. He is the strength that holds me safe. He is peace. He is love. He is fullness and splendour. He is all and at that moment looking into his eyes, I knew my life was in Him. I remember that my life and all it holds and the whole universe ceased to exist as He stood there. At that moment, I felt this desperate need to be IN HIM (place me like a seal over your arm..). I can't explain it, but it hurt. I felt lovesick beyond words and needed to breath Him, as He became my breath of air. I needed to feel the beating of his heart in me; I knew I could not exist without being consumed in Him. I stood there looking at Him and being loved in a way I had never felt before and I held onto the kitchen counter not to fall, because my body was weak, but I did not want to lose sight of Him. That splendour and beauty was more than I could stand. Oh, how many times I have sang those songs about Him, not knowing what they really meant. Now I know, and I can truly say, "my ears had heard of Him but now my eyes have seen", and I will never be the same. I told Him over and over, "You cannot leave this time, because I cannot live anymore without you". This experience lasted for what seemed to be a long time, it took a while for me to recover and go back to "normal life". Then the next day driving home I thought of Him and it happened again, and has continued, as my heart feels so connected with Him. I am by Beloved's and He is mine!!!!! He changes everything when He comes no wonder He IS so costly!

The coming of the Beloved brought great change into our lives and our home. There was a powerful release of love among us. The love between Ivan and I increased greatly. We also noticed a tremendous change in our daughter, who is a teenager. We adopted her from Guatemala at 7 years of age, and she had many issues in her heart and still had some "walls around" especially with me. Right after the Beloved came, all the walls came down and this amazing freedom and love began to flow in her and between us all and has become permanent. Things in our home and life were as good, but his coming transformed us and made it even better. I cannot explain the strength of the love that is in us now, surely love is stronger than death. There is also a newer and stronger rest and a trust in Him that carries us through. His love is perfect and casts out all fears indeed! At our church, we have been pressing in for intimacy and as result; we are having visitations and smell his fragrance and over, "You cannot leave this time, because I cannot live anymore without you".

At our church, we have been pressing in for intimacy and as result; we are having visitations and smell his fragrance corporately in prayer/worship meetings, and in soaking. Suddenly, usually as time tarries, this strong smell of wine (red deep and fragrant wine) fills the room and comes in waves, each wave gets stronger and stronger, then as this happens, the Spirit falls on the people and amazing things are happening. It is so strong and real that everyone who is there smells and experiences it. Recently the end of the Healing night, the last 6 of us were there talking about Him and the fragrance came stronger (each time is stronger), oh his presence, then, this incredible smell of fresh baked bread, as if the loaf was there in front of us, right out of the oven, then the Spirit of the Lord fell on us in a very powerful and deep way. It was more intense than we had experienced together before. There is such depth and intimacy in these visitations and all who are present at the time smell and experience it. He tells us important things during these times, but He loves on us and we fall more in love with Him. However, the expectation of Him bursting through is so strong that we are literally almost expecting Him to physically appear like when He visited the disciples after resurrection. It feels that way... perhaps He might...

For a while now the Father has been calling us to intimacy and those who have listened and are pressing into it, selling all they have for the "Pearl of Great Value", are entering into this supernatural realm of his existence, in a realm and a place where we get transformed and taken to live from glory to glory as we see his face...

What a great season we are in and the best is sure yet to come. Remember, "the time is short, but there is still time".
