Commentary By: Gordon King
Last night I had a strong vision (sense of smell). In fact it was so strong and intense that it woke me up from a dream. I smelled a very strong and sweet aroma which would last each time for just a second or two. But the funny thing is that I still smell it even as I am writing this post. It is not a lingering smell, like I said it only lasts for a second or two, however it keeps happening.
I wrote this last night about 20 minutes after first smelling the aroma, as I wanted to remember it before it faded, however it never did!
“8 September, 2014, 12:14 am
I awoke smelling a very sweet aroma, continued to smell at 12:34 am as I am writing this. The smells only lasts for one or two seconds each time. Maybe 15 times or more so far. Very real, not a dream. The smell woke me up, then I sensed angels in the room. I was then wide awake. The smells continued.
Very sweet and pleasant aroma, like toasted s’mores combined with cotton candy, that’s the only way to describe it.
I began to pray and worship God, listening for His quiet voice to speak to me. Then I thought that I should write this down while it is fresh in my mind.”
I have never had this experience before, not with the sense of smell. I feel that for some reason there are angels in my presence and they want me to know it.
Many people may not believe what I am saying to be true, or that maybe the smell is coming from someone cooking, or a candle, etc. Believe me I have thought about all those things myself. But this was late at night, no one cooking, I have no candles in my room, no sweet scents around me. I am a single man, what would I be doing with sweet-scented candles in my room?! And I continue to have the smells.
Has anyone one else reading this ever had a similar experience? I know that the bible speaks of the aroma of life, and the fragrance of Christ, of pleasing aromas to the Lord.
2 Corinthians 2:15-16
“15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?”
“But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.”
The old testament speaks often of fragrant and soothing aromas to the Lord.
“As a soothing aroma I will accept you when I bring you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered; and I will prove Myself holy among you in the sight of the nations.”
The Lord works in mysterious ways, I know this to be true. I pray for the Lord to make known to me, to give me understanding and insight into this vision-sense that I am having. I give Him thanks, praise, worship and glory. Amen
If anyone reading this has had a similar experience or knows anything about this please leave a comment. I don’t believe that I am the only one ever experiencing such a thing. I am not into searching through “new age” websites or anything not biblical or of God. So please do not leave comments which are not of the Lord.
Thank you, God Bless!
