Wall Writings
Equal Amounts
Worker of Perfume

  • To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task? (2 Corinthians 2:16)

wall writings: equal amounts : balanced christian life

(Exodus 30:30-38)
“Anoint Aaron and his sons and consecrate them so they may serve me as priests. Say to the Israelites, ‘This is to be my sacred anointing oil for the generations to come. Do not pour it on men’s bodies and do not make any oil with the same formula. It is sacred, and you are to consider it sacred. Whoever makes perfume like it and whoever puts it on anyone other than a priest must be cut off from his people.’ ” Then the Lord said to Moses, “Take fragrant spices-gum resin, onycha and galbanum-and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts, and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred. Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you. Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy to the Lord . Whoever makes any like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from his people.”

Worker of Perfume
“Equal Amounts”

Then the Lord said to Moses,

  • “Take fragrant spices—gum resin, onycha and galbanum—and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts…”

Creating a balanced incense requires the work of a perfumer. It is a work, not in terms of earning salvation, but in terms of a labor of love. A Fragrance that is not manufactured by works but with the willing joyful obedience of man.

It does not come easily but by perseverance. The craftsman makes the perfume with “equal amounts” of ingredients and a “blend” of fragrances. Whatever aspects of the Holy Spirit occur, whether represented by spices, gum resin, onyacha, galbanum or frankincense, they are of equal amounts.

The kind of church or person who has this fragrance is not emotionally unbalanced.

They do not dance or clap at every church meeting but have varying times and degrees of all the emotions of the Holy Spirit. They rejoice, but do so with fear and trembling.

Each “ingredient” never overpowers the others, but all come together to fill the senses with the fullness of the Lord. Such believers are not judgmental, but neither are they without judgment.

They do not have dry studies of the Word, but make their feelings obedient to the ways of Scripture.

They have things of the world, but they are not engrossed in them.

They may have money, but know how to hate and despise it.

They go to doctors, but don’t put their trust in them.

They believe in miraculous healing but can accept sickness from the Lord.

They know when to offend Pharisees but desire peace.

They know how to point out the faults of others without being a fault-finder.

They do not gossip but can speak of others in truth.

They are filled with a holy hatred, but their lives overflow with the deepest of love for others.

They have all things in common, but the leadership does not own everything.

They stand one in heart in mind, but different in every way.

They do not waste time, but know how to play in the Lord.

They know how to constantly aim for perfection, but also how to rest in God’s Sabbath of mercy.

  • . . . and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer.

This perfume is so special that it requires the “work of a perfumer.” A specialist, someone skilled in the way of the cross. No young convert knows how to make this perfume. No uncrucified person is permitted to create this perfume. Those who do not understand or accept the offensive message of the cross do not have the wisdom to blend this perfume.

It is an art that comes only from above when the flesh has been sufficiently crucified. Many a ministry attempts to mock it, like a cheap copy of an expensive perfume, but those with discernment recognize it as a lousy imitation.

The grandest prize of all awaits those who have this fragrance—fellowship with God. He will come and sit with them, and quietly hold and embrace them with His glories. For God declares that there “I will meet with you.” You will sense His presence without speaking a single word. Many times you will feel God’s mercy and pleasure as when a child just sits on a parent’s lap. Many falsely believe they feel this presence, but unless the cross does its painful work everyday, they live a lie.

Explanation of Wall Writings

For many individuals, their coming judgment is clearly written on the wall.

Though, it probably would take a spiritual man to unravel that which is a mystery to them.

  • Suddenly, the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lamp stand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote. (Daniel 5:5)

wall writings

So they brought in the gold goblets that had been taken from the temple of God in Jerusalem, and the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines drank from them. As they drank the wine, they praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone. Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote. His face turned pale and he was so frightened that his knees knocked together and his legs gave way. The king called out for the enchanters, astrologers and diviners to be brought and said to these wise men of Babylon, “Whoever reads this writing and tells me what it means will be clothed in purple and have a gold chain placed around his neck, and he will be made the third highest ruler in the kingdom.” Then all the king’s wise men came in, but they could not read the writing or tell the king what it meant. So King Belshazzar became even more terrified and his face grew more pale. His nobles were baffled. The queen, hearing the voices of the king and his nobles, came into the banquet hall. “O king, live forever!” she said. “Don’t be alarmed! Don’t look so pale! There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods in him. In the time of your father he was found to have insight and intelligence and wisdom like that of the gods. King Nebuchadnezzar your father-your father the king, I say-appointed him chief of the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners. This man Daniel, whom the king called Belteshazzar, was found to have a keen mind and knowledge and understanding, and also the ability to interpret dreams, explain riddles and solve difficult problems. Call for Daniel, and he will tell you what the writing means.”

So Daniel was brought before the king, and the king said to him, “Are you Daniel, one of the exiles my father the king brought from Judah? I have heard that the spirit of the gods is in you and that you have insight, intelligence and outstanding wisdom. The wise men and enchanters were brought before me to read this writing and tell me what it means, but they could not explain it. Now I have heard that you are able to give interpretations and to solve difficult problems. If you can read this writing and tell me what it means, you will be clothed in purple and have a gold chain placed around your neck, and you will be made the third highest ruler in the kingdom.”

O Belshazzar, have not humbled yourself, though you knew all this…

Then Daniel answered the king, “You may keep your gifts for yourself and give your rewards to someone else. Nevertheless, I will read the writing for the king and tell him what it means. “O king, the Most High God gave your father Nebuchadnezzar sovereignty and greatness and glory and splendor. Because of the high position he gave him, all the peoples and nations and men of every language dreaded and feared him. Those the king wanted to put to death, he put to death; those he wanted to spare, he spared; those he wanted to promote, he promoted; and those he wanted to humble, he humbled. But when his heart became arrogant and hardened with pride, he was deposed from his royal throne and stripped of his glory. He was driven away from people and given the mind of an animal; he lived with the wild donkeys and ate grass like cattle; and his body was drenched with the dew of heaven, until he acknowledged that the Most High God is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and sets over them anyone he wishes. “But you his son, O Belshazzar, have not humbled yourself, though you knew all this. Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven. You had the goblets from his temple brought to you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines drank wine from them. You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways. Therefore he sent the hand that wrote the inscription.

“This is the inscription that was written: Mene , Mene , Tekel , Parsin “This is what these words mean: Mene : God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. Tekel : You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Peres : Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.” Then at Belshazzar’s command, Daniel was clothed in purple, a gold chain was placed around his neck, and he was proclaimed the third highest ruler in the kingdom. That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain, and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two.}}
