Wherefore he saith, Awake, thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine upon thee.” Ephesians 5:14 ASV
To arise from the ashes is to resurrect in spirit, soul and body. To emerge from spiritual death, to remain connected with Holy Spirit. To resurrect from in emotions, to be sensitive, to feel, to be alive and awake in the body.
It is to function fully as a whole person.
Only when a woman awakes can she lay hold of the dream, the promised land. It is when the word of God is fulfilled in her life,
thy dead shall live; my dead bodies shall arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust; for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast forth the dead.” Isaiah 26:19 ASV
ARISE AND EAT
“And he looked, and, behold, there was at his head a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.” 1 Kings 19:6 ASV
When a woman is depressed, in ashes, in sack cloth, she must like Elijah obey and feed her body, only then can she enter a higher plane of life. Ashes of life become substance in the coals to bake the sweet cake of life. The journey requires strength and the body needs food to keep up, and living word is the food a woman must eat daily.
So she must arise and eat..
