The Necklace of Emeralds and Diamonds

The receiving of a beautiful, desired necklace and an article by Mary Cothers, led by the Holy Spirit, inspired these metaphoric thought.
What is Salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ like? I will tell you what it is like to me. It is like a lovely pendant, hung about the neck, the Centerpiece rot eh Cornerstone’s being Christ Jesus, with all the lovely diamonds encircling. “My child, hear the instructions of the Word of God and obey, for they are a garland about your shoulders and chains and pendants of gold and glory like the kings wear, about your neck” (Proverbs)


I see each encircling diamond like a various representation of the revelatory and notable manifestation of that glorious gift of Salvation; love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, humility…the Fruit of the holy Spirit.
The Word also says, “Don’t let mercy, truth and kindness forsake you but shut out all hatred and selfishness and hypocrisy and bind Love and Truth about your neck like a garland, a necklace.”….for it is Wisdom and understanding to you and graciousness to all whom you encounter.
In the SONG OF SOLOMON 1:10, the Lord says, “Oh, My beloved, your are comely with ornaments and chains of gold and strings of jewels, studded with diamonds and silver bedecking your neck.”
In several places in the Scriptures, the Lord admonishes His people not to stiffen our necks, like the children of Israel did in the wilderness and thus wandered aimlessly through their lives for forty fruitless years. But rather, wear a garland of grace, humility and obedience about your neck and it will be a testimony of the So Great a Salvation, freely given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ.
I pray that this beautiful “garland” this necklace that I received will always be a sign to remind me to wear graciousness and humbleness about my neck like this beautiful ornament that sparkles and shines.
I will be ever grateful for this exquisite reminder.

  1. SOS 7:4 says “Your neck is like a tower of ivory, Your eyes like the pools in Heshbon”

    But why ivory? The Song of Solomon was obviously referring to the whiteness of ivory. That’s the color we use as a symbol of purity and virtue. Ivory also is a symbol for hardness: unbreakable and incorruptible.

    The gospels are to the church, as eyes are to the body; The gospels give us clearness of sight into gospel-truths:
    Diamonds give us clarity like a crystal river.

    When we use necklace with emeralds and diamonds we are understanding more of the Throne of God:
    Rev. 4:3 “there was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance.”

    Rev. 22:1 “Then he showed me the river whose water give life, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.”

    I have read that our brains are made up of 80% water…The Word says we are to renew are minds daily.” We need to drink lots of water from the throne of God that sparkles like crystal.

  2. OH MG is this the diamond emerald necklace I saw that Sara gave you for Christmas the other day?…it sure was flowing with Living Waters….
    We all need to continually drink that Living water from the throne of God for our spiritual and natural brains….Sara wrote that she had read our brains are made up of 80% water……so if we want to think clear and speak clear see clear….seems to me we need to constantly drink that crystal clear Living water that flows from Gods throne……it also seems to me that having a brain made up of 80% water one could dry up pretty quickly if not in continual connection to God….dj

  3. Dorothy, it is so interesting as The Word of God is referred to as water for washing …

    Ephesians 5:26: “by the washing of water with the word.” So, the word is the water for our souls. We need to be busy reading His Word. Don’t you think so many of our issues could be solved if we were to seek counsel from His Word?
