Spice Girls

“When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome purchased [sweet-smelling] spices, so that they might go and anoint Him. Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll back the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?””
‭‭Mark‬ ‭16:1-3‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I’ve been waiting to write this one.

Tuesday, as I sat among three other precious daughters of God,

I had the Holy Ghost stir in me an understanding about the spice girls.

That was a band back in my day.

God often uses the things I relate to to catch my attention.

He’s personal like that.

But as I began to jump on this train of thought, I was illuminated about the Body of Christ in this very hour.

It was Tuesday that the ladies and I gathered.

There could have been much chatter about our recipes and outfits and where we were headed on Sunday…for Easter celebration….

All of the things most people were doing to spice up the celebration of the death and burial of Jesus.

The ladies headed to the tomb that morning were the same way.

They had a desire to spice up what they supposed to be dead.

The ladies then, and the church now..

Think about it.

They had been told that He would rise.

We have been told to celebrate Resurrection.

But what was really expected?

A dead body to spice up.

They had had prophecies.

Jesus Himself said He would rise.

But now, He was in that tomb.

Surely they were missing something.

They still wanted to minister to Jesus, even though their hope had now been misplaced.

But, He meets us.

Just like He did Mary, and those other spice girls.

He began to deal with my heart that day, that just like these women, we didn’t necessarily know what we would be finding as we met around the table on Tuesday-

But we knew our common focal point was Him.

And the understanding that He is Alive!

He had began to minister to me about these days a while back.

I had read in Revelation where Jesus said, Behold, I stand at the door and knock…

So, I had the awareness that as these ladies had reached out to me, or the moments of our lives had been connected for us in this season,

That I would consider each of them to be Jesus’ voice to me in this hour.

And mine to them.

That is how He lives with us.. through us!

He wants to sup with us.

While I’m on this note, of how our meeting originated,

I began to ponder on the word division last night.

It’s divided vision.

Simple as that.

That’s why there are so many denominations.

When we, for any reason, take our eyes off of Jesus, and bounce them onto our self or some other self,

We’re divided.

But, if we, simply look to Jesus, as our focal point,

He will get us all to where we need to be! (Eph 4)

These women at the tomb came with one agenda in mind-they had a single vision-

In mind.

Their agenda was a natural one.

They were led by what they were seeing.

God saw that scene at the tomb from a whole different perspective.

He knew His Son was alive.

However, just because they didn’t see it or feel it,


At that very moment.

How many churches are gathered today bringing Him spices while He is Alive and well and in their midst?

Father, open our eyes to see how you see.


God saw the end of this chapter in Mark from the beginning.

I encourage you to read it all.

This is the lens we should be looking through.

All eyes on Jesus..

The Resurrected Lord.

He gives us the plan and point of Resurrection at the end of this Chapter.

Let us move out from there……
